That film, starring Julia Roberts as legal investigator Brockovich, told the story of a down-on-her-luck single mother whose work on a toxic pollution lawsuit led to a $333-million settlement by PG&E. Its success has brought the proverbial 15 minutes of fame to Brockovich and her boss, lawyer Ed Masry of Westlake Village.
