A former Pelican employee tells Vanity Fair that Pellicano had done personal work for Ovitz since at least 1996. “When Ovitz was leaving Disney,” this employee says, “he became Anthony’s biggest interest, meaning most important client. They were good friends and would speak to each other on a daily basis. Ovitz would often come to the office, and Anthony helped him set up his office. It went on for months, with Anthony going out to Ovitz’s almost daily. Anthony helped install the security and phone systems at Ovitz’s office.”
