(User Submitted) – Nancy Grace, who specializes in grilling the main players in high-profile crime cases, will give a court deposition this week as part of a wrongful death lawsuit and doesn't want cameras anywhere near her. The CNN Headline News host has asked the judge to bar the filming of her testimony or at least to keep the video from the public eye, reports the Smoking Gun.

Her lawyers worry that the media will "cut and splice" her words into statements that are "wholly out of context." Grace and CNN are being sued by the parents of Melinda Duckett, a 21-year-old Florida woman who killed herself a day after she was interviewed by Grace over the disappearance of Duckett's 2-year-old son. He still hasn't been found, and police say the mother remains the main suspect.
