Kanye West‘s lawyer game is proper. Yeezy has been ordered to stay at least 30 feet from the photographer he got into an altercation with in LAX, but he has not been ordered to take anger management courses as the prosecutors had hoped.
Blair Berk — considered one the most effective criminal defense lawyers in the country who reps tons of celebs — appeared in court on Kanye’s behalf to ask the judge to make prosecutors fork over all of the info they have in their criminal battery case.
The judge ordered that the info be turned over, and then told prosecutors they should advise the photog — Daniel Ramos — to also stay away from Kanye. The judge said everyone involved should NOT use “self-help” — aka, inciting and ass-whooping.
But then … prosecutors asked the judge to order Kanye to attend anger management classes as a condition of bail. The judge scoffed, and rejected the request.
Berk is an interesting selection for Kanye because she’s known for getting things done under the radar … something foreign to his baby mama and her relatives.
Kanye needs a Houdini because sources tell us prosecutors have 7 videos showing the attack from virtually every angle.
As far as lawyers who are up to the task … he chose right.
Think Yeezy will be able to come out of this without having to pay that paparazzi a big fat check? Let us know in the comments.
