According to lawyers,moving cases for administrative purposes,that is scheduling when things take place,is quite common.This wasn't done on purpose,but since there is a public interest,assigning a court room with a live feed should have been done beforehand.Now,there will be people who are suspicious because of these actions.

So you're defending the honor of a pedophile? If that's what gets you to bed at night more power to you but the only thing that got Jackson to bed was the company of a little boy and a bunch of sleeping drugs. I don't feel sorry for MJ for one second. He's was no more then a pedophile and circus freak. You can look up to him all you want especially if you're a little boy looking up from his crotch. Good riddance.

Dear Laura (#25): The "jury" didn't exactly convict OJ either. I guess I don't understand what your point is? Michael admitted to repeatedly bedding children but never admitted to any "touching". He was sued by the parents of children who claimed he touched them and he paid them to keep their mouths shut and go away.

Let me ask YOU something: You have unfathomable riches and YOU are accused of pedophilia. Do you a) Pay them to shut up and go away instantly making yourself look guilty or b) Pay the best attorney you can find to vilify yourself and your name for the whole world?

Luck of the draw. They assigned the case and switched courtrooms so no media-not set up. Anyway, WHO IS THE WOMAN with the awful yellow stripped outfit? She's a royal piece of poo poo trying to cover the lense.

Murray is being treated like some big shot V.I.P. Black Mercedes, black suit, sunglasses. Ten security personnel around him coming in. The garage door pulled down so no one can speak or photo him. I'll bet he's lapping it up.

I thought at first it said Murray came in the courtroom in a black suit and was executed by 10 officers. I seen what I wanted to see in print, I guess.

@LAWRENCE

you really have NO idea what you're talking about do you? Michael was not a pedophile. And not only should you feel sorry for him, you should feel sorry for his 3 kids who lost their daddy and now have to live in the crazy ass jackson compound. their lives, now suck.
