John Galliano's Trial Starts This Wednesday

John Galliano's trial will begin this week, Wednesday, June 22, at 2pm. According to Vogue UK, the trial will be overseen by three judges and no jury, as the case is seen as a 'minor' case in France, but a strong media presence is likely. Galliano will be represented by Aurélien Hamelle of Metzner Associés, after he had a falling out with his previous lawyer who Galliano is now also suing (his lawyer is counter-suing - read the full story here). Geraldine Bloch, Philippe Virgitti and Fathia Oumeddour were named as the plaintiffs of the case. An eyewitness who previously spoke about the incident will also appear in court. They told Vogue UK what they witnessed:

"We had a table at La Perle and John Galliano sat next to us, he spoke to a couple at a nearby table to say 'Cheers' and they insulted him. An argument started and the police came, so Galliano's bodyguard suggested that they should go to the police station to sort it out. He wasn't 'busted' aggressively by police, it was very quiet and peaceful. I definitely didn't hear him say anything anti-Semitic, or against any religion, it was all very calm."
