The battle between celebrities and the paparazzi has been thrust into the public spotlight once again as the civil trial of actor Keanu Reeves commences. It is currently in the jury selection phase and moving forward.
The case revolves around a 2007 incident involving the actor and a photographer. Once selected, jurors will be given the task of deciding whether or not the actor owes damages to the shutterbug, a Brazilian man named Alison Silva, who fell and was injured while snapping pictures of Reeves while driving. Reeves was trying to pull out of a parking spot and knocked the photographer down.
