LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- A jury has been seated in a paparazzo’s civil trial against Keanu Reeves.
Opening statements were beginning Monday in Los Angeles, where several prospective jurors indicated ties to the movie industry.
One woman who listed her occupation as “actress” said she knew people who worked with the “Matrix” star. Reeves, who was seated in the courtroom, smiled slightly as she spoke.
Another man who said he was once the voice of Bugs Bunny did an impromptu impression, causing laughter in the courtroom.
The panel of 12 jurors and two alternates will decide whether Reeves owes damages to a photographer who fell while shooting the actor in 2007. Reeves was pulling out of a parking space, and Alison Silva says the car knocked him down.
