FILE - In this July 31, 2006 file photo, Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy James Mee speaks to a reporter, as he arrived at his home in Calabasas, Calif. A judge on Tuesday, Feb. 22, 2011, said Mee can go forward with his complaint against the sheriff's department. Mee arrested actor-director Mel Gibson on suspicion of drunken driving in 2006 in Malibu. During the arrest, the Oscar-winning actor made anti-Semitic slurs to Mee, who's Jewish. Mee's lawsuit claims his superiors forced him to rewrite his initial report to remove references to the rant. However, some details were later leaked to the press. Mee was investigated as the possible source but never charged. (AP Photo/Nick Ut, File)
