Zsa Zsa Gabor says the prosecutor who successfully pressed charges against her for slapping a policeman conferred illegally in private with the trial judge.
The complaint against Deputy District Attorney Elden Fox, sent to the state bar in May, was under investigation, said spokeswoman Susan Scott in San Francisco. Fox said the bar sent him a letter about the probe a month ago, but he dismissed the complaint as "baseless" and "sort of funny."
Gabor's complaint cited a March 31 story in the Daily News of Los Angeles. It reported that Fox said he talked to Municipal Judge Charles Rubin concerning the community service portion of her October sentence for slapping Officer Paul Kramer on June 14, 1989.
Gabor had been sentenced to 120 hours of service at a women's shelter as well as a short jail stay.
