Judge Michael Pastor handed down the surprise order today. 

The trial will not only put the spotlight on Jackson's death, but the manner in which the medical community treats celebrities.

Opening statements should begin the first week in April.

#1 (I think) and "Oh, yea."

Just like an OJ Simpson trial.

Who cares. Personally, I think MJ injected himself and killed himself.

OK I dont get it, the guy pictured on the left is Dr Murray....WHAT IS THAT pictured on the right? Is that some type of human-monkey hybrid or something that crawled out of a coffin or is it Liza Minelli?

Who wants to watch that crap - OJ ruined the public display of trials for everyone when he was found not guilty - so absurd. I assume Murray will be found guilty thus cementing in my mind that the entire justice system in California is corrupt and just for show. We all know Jackson was responsible for his own death.

Well why not? One big CIRCUS of a life deserves one big CIRCUS of a trial...I'm sure MJ would love all of the attention his death has garnered...

and don't spout off.."oh, he was so private"

He lived his life in front of an audience and LOVED the adoration(that's why he always got caught)...

If only Michael had televised his pedophila it would have been much easier to prosecute him and much harder to buy his way out of it.
