Former Location –
Melvin Belli was a prominent lawyer known as “The King of Torts”, and by detractors as ‘Melvin Bellicose’. In his best known case, Belli represented Jack Ruby, for free, after Ruby shot and killed Lee Harvey Oswald.
In his most well known role other then as an attorney, Belli appeared in a 1968 episode of Star Trek called “And the Children Shall Lead” which is probably the worst Star Trek episode EVER. In it he played Gorgan, an evil being who corrupts a group of children, how appropriate…
He is also remembered for his role in the movie “Gimme Shelter” as the Rolling Stone’s lawyer representing them in their negotiations to play Altamont Speedway.
