LOS ANGELES (AP) – A filmmaker whose interviews are a critical part of hearings about the validity of a multimillion dollar judgment against Dole Food Co. insists he “wasn’t here to be a yes man” for either side in the dispute over damage to Nicaraguan banana workers.

Jason Glaser acknowledged he was being paid by lawyers representing the workers who claim pesticides made them sterile. But he said his tapes of mysterious “John Doe” witnesses, one of which was played in court Friday, may have helped or harmed either side in the lawsuit.

Glaser told Judge Victoria Chaney he is concerned about his safetyas a result of testifying.
