Mel Gibson - Cop Who Arrested Mel Gibson Gets His Day In Court For Discrimination Trial

The traffic cop who exposed Mel Gibson's anti-Jew rant during a 2006 Dui arrest has been given permission to take his discrimination case related to the incident to court.
The movie star was forced to make apologies to several Jewish leaders after Sheriff Deputy James Mee revealed the Braveheart star had attacked his faith after he pulled him over and charged him with driving drunk in Malibu, California.
Mee maintains he suffered taunts and missed out on career advancement following the arrest and now a Los Angeles judge has ruled a jury should decide if he is a victim of discrimination because of his religion.
The Jewish police officer filed suit in 2010, claiming he was overlooked for promotion after complaining to his bosses that Gibson received preferential treatment from deputies. He also alleged his superiors ordered him to remove parts of his report about Gibson's arrest, "effectively participating in covering up the anti-Semitic posture of Mr Gibson," according to Mee's lawyers.
The trial is scheduled to begin on 14 February (12).
