Shandling testifies in Pellicano trial

LOS ANGELES Shandling is among the witnesses testifying Thursday at the Los Angeles trial of private eye Anthony Pellicano and four other defendants.

Shandling says prosecutors showed him that police databases had been searched for his personal information in 1999. At the time Shandling was involved in a lawsuit with his former manager and now Paramount studios head Brad Grey. The suit was settled, but Shandling says he doesn't know if the information was used against him.

Prosecutors say a racketeering scheme headed by Pellicano dug up dirt on prominent Hollywood clients for use in legal and other disputes. The defendants have pleaded not guilty.
