George Clooney Heads To Court

George Clooney is take to the stand in a Milan courtroom later this month.

The ‘Up in the Air’ star will attend court on July 16 to testify against three people accused of using his name for a fashion label and to promote a fashion show.

The 49-year-old actor is to testify as a civil plaintiff at the fraud trial in the Italian business and fashion capital.

And Judge Pietro Caccialanza has ordered extra security to protect the Oscar-winning actor from the huge numbers of fans expected to attend.

The judge said “There will be a lot of people, I imagine.”

However, Judge Caccialanza promised fans the extra security would not prevent them from seeing the Hollywood star, insisting they would have the chance “to come close to their hero”.

Win a Holiday

The fraud case originally began in April 2008, when three still unnamed people were accused of fraud, forgery and possession of stolen goods while preparing for a fashion show at a Milan hotel.

George is a regular visitor to Italy where he has a villa on Lake Como, north of Milan, and is currently dating Italian actress-and-model Elisabetta Canalis.
