Exclusive: Robert Durst's attorneys take aim at filmmakers behind 'The Jinx' in murder case

Alex Dobuzinskis

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Attorneys for real estate scion Robert Durst, charged in Los Angeles with murdering his confidante Susan Berman in 2000, have asked a judge to declare that prosecutors had a very close working relationship with filmmakers behind an HBO documentary series who uncovered key evidence in the case.

Durst’s attorneys on July 31 filed legal papers, which have not been publicly disclosed but were seen by Reuters, asking a judge to rule that the filmmakers are not entitled to legal rights that shield journalists from having to reveal their sources and information.

Without such protections, the filmmakers could be forced to disclose information they came across in filming “The Jinx” to Durst’s attorneys that could aid in his defense, legal experts said.

The legal papers filed by Durst’s attorneys do not seek to suppress any evidence uncovered for “The Jinx” that could be used at trial, saying they were not at this point asserting the collaboration between filmmakers and prosecutors violated his constitutional rights.

1. That old SOB still hasn't gone to trial?

Jesus, how many people has he killed so far? his wife, his best friend and an old guy who he took advantage of where he was living. He cut him up in pieces and put him in garbage bags. They never found his wife that I know of. God, please rid the earth of this POS.
