'Full access' to Mel ex's computer

A US judge ruled that detectives will have unrestricted access to search the contents of a computer used by Mel Gibson's ex-girlfriend while they investigate claims she tried to extort the actor.
An attorney for Oksana Grigorieva had been seeking a ruling that would limit what sheriff's detectives could look for on the computer, which the Russian-born musician said contains loads of personal information, including videos, letters and photos.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon said that he could not dictate what detectives search for, but that they may be barred from using certain information if a criminal case against Grigorieva is filed.
Detectives will be working off a copy of the computer's hard drive because Grigorieva's computer has been returned to her.
