      This just in! Could this be the break we’ve been waiting for?

      LOS ANGELES, California (AP) — “Dr. Phil” can have access to documents about two brothers who were once suspected in the case of an Alabama teenager who vanished while on vacation in Aruba, a judge ruled Wednesday.

      Dr. Phil McGraw has been sued by two brothers once were suspects in the Natalee Holloway case.

      1 of 2 The documents were sought as part of the talk show’s defense against the brothers who sued last year, claiming defamation, fraud and invasion of privacy.

      Deepak and Satish Kalpoe claim the “Dr. Phil” show altered portions of a secretly recorded conversation between Deepak Kalpoe and a private investigator to “create false, incriminating, and defamatory statements that the plaintiffs engaged in criminal activity against Natalee Holloway.”

      The September 15, 2005, episode of the show alleged the brothers gave Holloway a date-rape drug and had group sex with her, the suit contended.

      CBS and Dr. Phil McGraw claimed that documents existed in which the Kalpoes acknowledged having sex with the girl — which they have denied. Attorneys for the defendants sought the documents and also e-mails between the brothers and others regarding the case.

      The brothers’ attorneys said Aruban authorities had much of the information being sought and that the authorities had refused to release it.

      In granting access, Superior Court Judge Edward A. Ferns said the documents “are relevant to the most fundamental issues in this case.”

      A message seeking comment on the decision was left at the office of attorneys for the brothers. It was not immediately returned Wednesday.

      A call to an attorney for McGraw also was not immediately returned.

      Holloway, a high school student, was 18 when she vanished on May 30, 2005, during a trip to the Caribbean resort island. The Kalpoes were arrested in connection with her disappearance but were later released and have not been charged with a crime.

      Also Wednesday, the judge denied a motion to dismiss the estate of a private investigator from the lawsuit.

      Jamie Skeeters, who died on January 24, secretly videotaped the interview with Deepak Kalpoe that was used on the “Dr. Phil” segment, the lawsuit contended.

      In June, another Los Angeles judge dismissed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the Kalpoes by Holloway’s parents. The judge ruled that the case has no California connection and the courts lacked jurisdiction over the brothers. E-mail to a friend

      Chicago Jim,

      This is positive news, but here is how the game will be played. They will either:

      1) withdraw their lawsuit and walk away without providing the information.


      2) they will appeal this decision to the appellate court in order to drag this out longer (sound familiar….if it does it is because the whole Aruba ‘playbook’ is to draw things out). If the appellate court affirms the lower courts decision, see number 1 above.

      Dr. Phil will never see those documents.

      Also….even if the Kalpoes wanted the suit to go forward and want the documents to be produced you can count on the following:

      1) Paulus Van Der Sloot filing for them not to be released under “Dutch Law:Aruban Style”

      2) A black robed buddy of Paulus’ sealing the documents from being seen.


      You may just see an Aruban judge rule that documents from a “currently active” criminal case can not be released for a civil case…..this may explain why the KLPD has kept the case “open”….in order to create a ‘parachute’ to let the guilty not be exposed.

      Regardless….if the Kalpoes really want to move it forward….expect legal shenanigans out of Aruba in the production of these items. Bank on it.

      Did Dana talk about the Holloway case on the show tonight? What did he say?

    7. Chicago Jim on September 14th, 2007 10:33 am

      Hey MD,

      Oh, I know buddy, but I will never give up hope! I pray every day that she will be home with her family!
