Fans can 'get close' to George Clooney in court

Wednesday July 7, 2010

Heart-throb George Clooney is to appear as a witness in an Italian courtroom to testify against three people accused of fraudulently using his name to endorse a line of clothing.

Given George’s worldwide appeal, the judge has arranged for additional security as a crowd of adoring fans is expected to swamp the proceedings.

Despite the security measures however, Judge Pietro Caccialanza adds that the room in question is quite large giving those who wish an opportunity "to come close to their hero."

The counterfeit clothing line never saw the light of day as Italian police stepped in and seized the fake label before it went on display at a fashion show in Milan in 2008.
