SECRET FILM MAY PROVE MICHAEL JACKSON WAS NEAR DEATH BEFORE OVERDOSE


MICHAEL Jackson’s doctor is demanding to see 200 hours of secret film of the King of Pop which was shot before he died.

Heart specialist Conrad Murray and his legal team want to review 20 boxes of videos held in a vault at Sony Studios.

They aim to try to prove Jackson’s cardiac arrest was caused by “other factors” as well as a massive overdose of the hospital anaesthetic Propofol.

The existence of a wealth of new material – filmed during rehearsals for the doomed This Is It tour – was revealed in papers filed by Murray’s legal team at Los Angeles Superior Court. Sony lawyers are trying to block a release order on the grounds of cost.

They claim it would set the studio back “at least” £120,000 to catalogue and reproduce all the tapes.

In a written response to a judge, they revealed the tapes, said to contain enough footage for at least two more Jackson films, were removed from his rented mansion.

They said: “When they were transported to the Sony lot in Culver City, the transport in an unmarked truck was accompanied by armed guards in the dead of night.”

Murray’s defence team believes the film will prove Jackson was so frail before the Propofol overdose that he was already close to death.

The doc, whose manslaughter trial starts in September, also says he has recruited a “star witness”.

Court papers name him as Dr David Adams, an anaesthetist based in Las Vegas, Nevada, where Dr Murray also owned a clinic before he became Jacko’s personal medic.

Defence team spokeswoman Miranda Sevcik said: “We have subpoenaed him for the trial.”

Dr Adams was one of many health professionals interviewed by police after Jackson’s death on June 25, 2009.

He told them he treated the singer for “various conditions” and administered Propofol to him four times.

Criminal law expert Jim Fedalen, who is not involved in the case, said: “The defence will argue that Jackson was an habitual abuser of Propofol.

“The suggestion that Jackson topped up his own intravenous dosages has already been made by them.

“If they have another medical professional prepared to say the same thing, then this may well swing a jury in Murray’s favour.”

Речь идет о тех кадрах, которые мы не видели и которые могут доказать, что Майкл не хорошо себя чувствовал на репетициях ЗИИ

08:25 AEST Sun Jun 26 201

Defence lawyers and prosecutors in the involuntary manslaughter case against Michael Jackson's doctor won permission to view raw footage that didn't make it into the concert movie This Is It.

The lawyers want to show excerpts from the movie to demonstrate Jackson's physical condition before he died.

However, the ruling also sets the stage for the singer to become the posthumous star of the upcoming trial.

At one point in the court hearing, Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor asked if prosecutors wanted to show the entire movie to jurors, but the issue was tabled for later discussion.

Deputy District Attorney David Walgren initially asked to show excerpts of the actual movie compiled from rehearsals two days before Jackson's death on June 25, 2009.

Defence lawyers, however, asked to see out-takes not used in the movie and requested the time frame begin 10 days before Jackson died.

Walgren said prosecutors want to see the same raw footage that is viewed by the defence.

Defence lawyer Nareg Gourjian objected to the prosecution's request to sit in on the private screening, saying the subpoena was issued by the defence.

Walgren countered that it would be "silly and a waste of time" for him to get a separate subpoena and the judge agreed.

Pastor said both sides can go to Sony studios beginning on Tuesday and view 21 boxes of audio-visual materials that have been estimated to capture 100 hours of rehearsal time. Jackson was preparing for a widely anticipated London concert and died just before he was to leave for Britain.

Dr. Conrad Murray, hired as Jackson's private physician for the tour, is charged with involuntary manslaughter, accused of giving Jackson an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol and other sedatives. He has pleaded not guilty and is due for trial in September.

The hearing came one day before the second anniversary of Jackson's death.

Judge to View Footage at Culver City

Judge in Michael Jackson Case to View Footage at Sony Studios

Judge Michael Pastor will come to Culver City to watch rehearsal footage to decide whether it should be admissible in the trial of Conrad Murray, the singer's former doctor.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said today he will visit Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City by this weekend to review rehearsal footage of Michael Jackson taken shortly before his death to determine whether it should be shown to jurors in the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson's former doctor who has been charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Prosecutors say that the 12 to 16 hours of raw footage should be admissible in the case involving Murray, who is accused of administering propofol—a powerful anesthetic—to the singer to help him fall asleep, then failing to properly monitor him. Defense attorneys claim most of the footage is irrelevant, saying that it simply shows the singer performing. They also suggested that Jackson could have given himself a larger dose of propofol while the doctor was out of the singer's bedroom in a rented Holmby Hills estate.

Jackson died of propofol intoxication on June 25, 2009, during a rigorous rehearsal schedule for his “This Is It” tour.

Murray's trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 8. Another hearing is scheduled for the trial on Monday.

Defense attorneys suggested in court that the jury should be sequestered to prevent the panel from being influenced by media reports—specifically by television pundit Nancy Grace.

"I just think that there's an overwhelming likelihood of contamination of the court's control of the evidence," defense attorney J. Michael Flanagan said.

Pastor appeared cool to the motion, saying he didn't think such a move was necessary, and the court system likely couldn't afford such a move anyway.

He also said sequestering the panel would be an "extraordinary deprivation" to jurors.

But Pastor told defense attorneys that they were free to file a formal motion making such a request.

Sony wants subpoena for Jackson footage quashed

Sony wants subpoena for Jackson footage quashed


Sony studios on Friday asked the judge hearing Michael Jackson's manslaughter trial to throw out a subpoena for footage of the singer's final rehearsals after a defense attorney said earlier this week that reviewing them was "a big waste of time."

Attorneys for Sony Pictures Entertainment, which has footage from the "This Is It" film depicting Jackson's last rehearsals, argue in a motion that neither prosecutors nor defense attorneys should be able to show the footage during the trial.

Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor is scheduled to consider the request on Monday, but canceled plans to review the outtakes over the weekend. In a ruling, he stated that he had watched some of the 16 hours that attorneys were considering presenting to jurors, but that he would not travel to Sony studios for additional viewings on Saturday and Sunday.

The studio based its motion on quotes defense attorney J. Michael Flanagan made after a hearing Wednesday in which he said the footage doesn't show the singer was in poor health in the days before he died. Flanagan represents Dr. Conrad Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to an involuntary manslaughter charge related to Jackson's death.

"We believe his health is somewhat compromised, but he's not displaying it," Flanagan told reporters, including The Associated Press. He added that he thought the footage was irrelevant to the trial.

"I really think it's a big waste of time," he said.

Sony seized on the statement in its motion, writing, "If the enterprise is a waste of time, the court has stated that it has little time to be wasted."

Flanagan did not immediately return a phone message Friday afternoon.

Defense attorneys had been hoping the unseen footage from "This Is It" would support their contention that Jackson was frail in the days before his June 25 death.

Prosecutors found the footage helpful to their case, and asked Pastor to allow them to use up to 12 hours of raw footage. Murray's team wanted to show up to four hours from the rehearsals.

Jury selection in Murray's trial is scheduled to begin on Sept. 8.

Кто бы сомневался :)

A judge says unseen footage of Michael Jackson's final rehearsals cannot be shown to jurors in the upcoming trial of the doctor charged in his death.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor approved a motion by Sony Pictures quashing a subpoena for 16 hours of previously-unseen footage of Jackson's rehearsals for a series of comeback concerts. He said Monday that the images were valuable to the studio and did not show the singer in poor health as Dr. Conrad Murray's attorneys have contended.

Prosecutors had wanted to show several hours of footage to show that Jackson was engaged, confident and healthy in the days before his death on June 25, 2009.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter. His trial is slated to begin Sept. 8.

Начинается отбор присяжных по делу Майкла Джексона

(CNN) - Jury selection is gearing up for the September trial of Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's former personal doctor who is facing charges in the singer's death.

The process for picking jurors for the manslaughter trial starts with a 30 page, 117 question document, which lawyers from both sides came up with a few months ago.

Answers that prospective jurors give to these questions will be poured over by the attorneys and their jury consultants.

Jo-Ellan Dimitrius, who's made a career of picking juries dating back to the OJ Simpson murder trial, looked over a copy of the questionnaire.

"Holy Cow, I'm just looking at the medications," she said.

In a case like this, Dimitrius said there will be people who may lie to get picked.

"The sad reality is that people have a hidden agenda, whether they want to write a book or they want their fifteen minutes of fame," she said.

The questionnaire lists 136 potential witnesses including Jackson's parents, brothers and sisters and his three children.

It also asks if, and even why, and individual saw the film about Jackson's last performing days, "This is It."

The prosecution is planning to show a clip from the documentary because they said it proves Jackson was in good health days before his death.

Potential jurors are also asked about their familiarity with a laundry list of 27 different prescription drugs, including propofol, the drug tied to his death.

"The juror who has a lot of personal experience and knowledge of the drugs and medications that are going to be talked about is going to be a better defense juror," Dimitrius said.

She said the defense also wants jurors who think Jackson was an oddball. She said prosecutors want the opposite - someone who's a Michael Jackson fan and believes the singer was manipulated during his life and wrongly accused of child molestation.

Ultimately, she said the best jurors are those who can stand up to pressure in the jury room.

"You want somebody who's strong who's not going to back down no matter what," she said.

It's likely that at least one question will be added about the Casey Anthony trial. Lawyers on both sides may want to know how much individuals followed the trial.

Murray's lawyers said they're concerned about the amount of publicity that Anthony received, suggesting that jurors might have to be sequestered to ensure Murray gets a fair trial.

Witnesses Can’t Discuss Alleged Drug Use

Judge Rules Witnesses Can’t Discuss Alleged Drug Use In Michael Jackson’s Past

A judge ruled Monday that witnesses won’t be able to discuss Michael Jackson’s drug use in the murder trial involving the pop superstar’s doctor.

Conrad Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Murray’s defense lawyers were attempting to portray the late singer as a drug addict using witness testimony. The witnesses were to reportedly come from Jackson’s inner circle, even though most people who were close to him have not cooperated with Murray’s legal team.

Defense attorney Ed Chernoff told Judge Michael Pastor that Michael Jackson administered the fatal dose of the anaesthetic propofol to himself.

The defense also argued that witnesses, including investigators involved in the 2003 child molestation case, would testify that Jackson was using Demerol. Jackson was acquitted in the 2003 case.

Chernoff alleged that Jackson had been addicted to Demerol for years and that, in the months leading up to his death, the King of Pop had been withdrawing from the drug. That’s when he allegedly turned to Propofol, Chernoff said.

“We believe the time he did the desperate act we believe he did, he was withdrawing from Demerol — he was addicted to Demerol,” Chernoff said.

The defense stated that Jackson had been anxious about his upcoming concert tour, “This Is It”, and was unable to sleep because of withdrawals from Demerol, and that was why he allegedly turned to propofol to ease his nerves.

However, the judge ruled against the defense, deeming the use of witness testimony on Jackson’s past drug use would be “prejudicial” and are not pertinent to the charges in this case.

Judge Pastor said he’d only allow some witnesses to discuss the alleged drug use in the months leading up to Jackson’s death.

Lawyers hint they'll claim Jacko killed himself

Lawyers hint they'll claim Jacko killed himself

In a Los Angeles courtroom Monday, attorneys for the doctor accused of manslaughter in Michael Jackson's death offered some clues as to how they plan to defend him, reports CBS News Correspondent Ben Tracy.

Some of those closest to Jackson say he was weak, thin and desperate for drugs in the months before he died.

Now, lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray say some in the late pop star's inner-circle should be forced to testify - for the defense.

Among them, nurse Cherilyn Lee, who went public with claims Jackson begged her for the powerful anesthetic Propofol.

"He said, 'I want an IV that, when I have this IV, when it drops into my vein, the first drop, I am knocked out," Lee said in June 2009.

Murray admits giving Jackson the drug, but his defense team plans to argue that Jackson injected himself with the lethal dose.

The judge ruled Monday that two other doctors, who say the singer asked them for Propofol, must also take the stand.

"What Conrad Murray is hoping," explains CBS News legal analyst Lisa Bloom, "is that these witnesses will corroborate their position that Jackson was a known addict. They'll still have to link it up that he self-injected, but it makes it more likely."

But the judge blocked all testimony regarding Jackson's 2005 trial on child molestation charges, calling it "distracting and misleading" for jurors. Jackson was acquitted in the case.

In another blow to the defense, the judge crossed more than a dozen potential witnesses off their list.

They do plan to call Jackson's longtime make-up artist, Karen Faye. As the singer prepared to launch his "This Is It" comeback, Faye claims, he told her he didn't think he could "physically complete" the concert tour.

Meanwhile, Jackson's children paid tribute to their father's legacy on what would have been his 53rd birthday, attending an emotional gathering of his fans in his hometown of Gary, Ind.

JACKSON'S INNER CIRCLE WILL NOT TESTIFY

JACKSON'S INNER CIRCLE WILL NOT TESTIFY DURING MANSLAUGHTER TRIAL


Members of MICHAEL JACKSON's inner circle have been forbidden from testifying at the upcoming manslaughter trial of the pop star's personal physician over fears they'll prolong the case and confuse jurors.

Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers had hoped to call Jackson's former nanny and his dermatologist, among others, to the witness stand in an effort to prove that the King of Pop had an extensive addiction to drugs and accidentally overdosed, but Los Angeles County Superior Court judge Michael Pastor has excluded the testimony of more than a dozen defence witnesses.

Explaining his ruling on Tuesday (30Aug11), the judge said, "Discussions of these subject matters are sufficiently convoluted, distracting and detracting as to substantially outweigh any probative value whatsoever."

Judge Pastor has already ruled out testimony from anyone involved in Jackson's 2005 child molestation trial.

A lawyer for Dr. Murray, who stands accused of administering the drug that killed Jackson in June, 2009, tells the Los Angeles Times the defence plans to file a motion later this week (begs29Aug11) asking the judge to reconsider his banned witnesses.

DR. CONRAD MURRAY
Defense Calls MJ Doctor
It Could Backfire Bigtime


Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyers will call one of Michael Jackson's doctors to the stand, and our sources say it could blow up in their faces.

Dr. David Adams -- a Las Vegas anesthesiologist -- treated MJ on 4 occasions, administering Propofol during dental procedures.

Dr. Murray told cops during his LAPD interview that Dr. Adams was one of the docs who gave MJ Propofol just to sleep ... once putting the singer under for 5 or 6 hours while Murray says he was present.

Murray also told cops MJ had asked Adams to be his doctor during the "This is It" tour, and Adams wanted between $1.2 and $1.3 million.

We're told the defense will call Dr. Adams to the stand -- possibly as early as today -- to establish that MJ was a hard-core Propofol user and that other doctors, including Adams, were fueling his addiction.

But here's what we know. Sources connected to Dr. Adams tell TMZ ... Adams will make it clear -- he NEVER put Michael under just to help him sleep, although Adams will say he did administer Propofol for legitimate dental procedures.

But even more important ... Adams wants to tell the jury he strongly believes Michael became a victim to Murray's financial greed. Adams will say Murray actually negotiated with him and cut him out of the tour so Murray would be the sole beneficiary of Michael's medical budget.
