But who will get to try to pry them out of relief defendant Phil Mickelson in the prep sessions for the upcoming trial of his golfing buddy/bookie/indicted co-conspirator Billy Walters?

Pro golfer Phil Mickelson will be called as a witness in the upcoming insider-trading case of notorious gambler Billy Walters.

But which side he testifies for — the Securities and Exchange Commision or Walters — is in doubt because both are claiming him.

Perhaps the bigger question is: Will either side have the nerve to call Carl Icahn to the stand? Because he’s been itching to give someone—Rupert Murdoch, perhaps—a piece of his mind about this mess.
