Shelley Malil, a former Hollywood actor who tried to stab to death his ex-girlfriend in her San Marcos home in 2008, was sentenced to life in prison in December. He was sent from local jail to Donovan State Prison last month. Since February, he’s been prisoner #AF 9124.

Because of the transfer to prison, Malil was a no-show at a civil hearing February 18 in the Vista Courthouse. Kendra Beebe, the woman who survived the multi-knife attack, is asking for $10 million in general, special, and punitive damages from her ex-lover. The next hearing in the civil case will be held at San Diego’s North County Superior Courthouse on April 1.

I wonder if he was in the US on an H-1B visa? :)

If she can win a judgment from him by default, what are the chances she can collect anything? After all, he's now serving an indefinite sentence in a state that has a tradition of being very stingy with parole. If/when he does get out, he'll be old and unemployable, so unless he has some assets the plaintiff can identify and seize, she'll get nothing except perhaps some satisfaction.

He was an actor, who may or may not have a home and other assets. I woudl think he does have some assets, and yes, if they do not win by default it will be a waste of the victims money to go after him-the costs to litigate will be far more than the assets of the average actor. Remember, 96% of all actors earn less than $50K per year. Is he in the 5% that make more? Probably but I bet not by much.

If no default win, then maybe she is doing it for personal satisfaction, which I would probably do too. I have had to sue people who were/are "judgment proof" in the past, to make an example out of them. I knew there would be no money to collect, and I did win on a default, but it was worth it to me because it sent out a message loud and clear-if someone tries to jerk my chain I will spend the time effort and money to go after them even though I won't be able to collect from, then everyone KNOWS I will do it against someone who does have assets. That sends a powerful message.

Wow, that is a really good story Mindy! Thanks for sharing. So I take it you are pretty well off-or at leats I hope so with $15 million made on one tune.

I don't understand how he got a life sentence for almost killing someone. These guys who obviously commit murder get lighter sentences or get off altogether all the time. I wish I had gone to law school so that I could get all this legal stuff figured out.

==============================

He got an indeterminate sentence I am sure, probably something like 15,20,25-life. He will get out in maybe 30 years.

But to answer your question how our justice system is currently working-it is ALL POLITICS.

We just had the son of Fabian Nunez, a state Democratic leader, have his sentence reduced form 16 years to 7, thanks to Fabian's close buddy, Arnold the Dorkof a Gov. That act should outrage every person in this state. I was always a big fan of Arnold, until he did that. I no longer care about a thing he does. He is DOA to me.
