Paramount chief Brad Grey has just responded to former management client Garry Shandling’s testimony this morning in the Pellicano wiretapping trial:

Garry and I had a long personal and professional relationship, which frankly ended when he hired David Boies, and sued me and Brillstein Grey for $100 million. His actions forced us to hire our own lawyer — Bert Fields — and our friendship was overtaken by a legal process that was directed by lawyers and which ended with an equitable settlement. Even though we haven’t spoken since that time, he remains one of the most talented people I have known and I wish him only the best.”
