Jackson's Lawyer Quits

MICHAEL JACKSON's lawyer THOMAS MESEREAU JNR will no longer represent the troubled singer after he withdrew his name from two impending lawsuits.

The white-haired attorney and his partner SUSAN YU successfully defended Jackson in his 2005 child molestation trial after they were brought in to replace the case's original lawyer MARK GERAGOS in April 2004.

In two separate lawsuits filed against the THRILLER hitmaker by his former aides DIETER WIESNER and MARC SCHAFFEL, Mesereau Jnr and Yu have formally removed themselves as the star's legal representation, reports the New York Post newspaper.

Jackson's was recently represented by THOMAS HALL in a California Court Of Appeal ruling last week (15FEB06) in a legal battle with his ex-wife DEBORAH ROWE, concerning the former nurse's parental rights over their two children.

Mez never threw a bone to the media. Ramone Retard Bain did that press release all on her own to try and minimize damage. Like it's going to do any good at this point. The Titanic has already sunk. We all know Bain's tongue wags at both ends and flops in the middle. Mez isn't going to be stupid and contradict her. As far as he's concerned, he's outa there and DONE with the bum.Jacko hasn't paid a lawyer in years, what makes you think he's going to pay Mesereau now? He stiffed the guy who got him off on 10 charges of molestation. Now he's down to looking for lawyers on the outskirts of town. He's already screwed over the best and they're having nothing further to do with him.BTW, his lawyer down in New Orleans quit too. Why? Because Jacko didn't paid his bill. The original 4 lawyers are suing him for not paying their bills too. It's going to be a hoot if the judge down there enters a default judgement against him for not showing up. He's already screwed that up once. MJ's a deadbeat anyway. Serves him right.Where's the Katrina single? Waiting for next hurricane season? Maybe he can put it out when he's sitting in jail playing the bonerphone for Bubba.news://alt.music.michael-jackson

What else would Mesereau say? He's not going to throw a piece of meat to the media. He's going to speak and behave in a professional manner. No matter if he DID sucessfully put a child molester back into the streets, he's STILL going to put on moral, professional airs. Don't get me wrong, Mesereau is one hell of a defence lawyer, but the law is an ass and Mesereau KNOWS in his heart that Jackson is a pedophile and is guilty of molesting more than just one child.

Eva's a brain dead f'loon. Oh wait, what am I saying. F'loons never had brains to start with. They could witness jackson molesting a child right in front of them, and they'd immediately start making excuses and swear he didn't do it. MJ fans are the most insane, illogical creatures ever.news://alt.music.michael-jackson

AND JUST FOR THE RECORD YOU FOOLS THIS IS WHAT REALLY HAPPENED : PRESS RELEASE - STATEMENT OF ATTORNEY THOMAS A. MESEREAU, JR. Attorney Thomas A. Mesereau, Jr., issues the following statement regarding Mr. Michael Jackson:“I am very disturbed by the false, erroneous, and self-serving reports about the relationship between Michael Jackson, my law partner, Susan Yu, andme.“At the conclusion of the criminal trial in Santa Maria, CA., Michael Jacksonwas acquitted 14 times. The jury acquitted him of 10 felonies and 4 lesser-included misdemeanors. Michael Jackson was completely vindicated andexonerated by these verdicts.“Shortly thereafter, Michael Jackson, and his beautiful children, moved tothe Middle East. Attorney Susan Yu and I were asked to help him duringthis difficult period of transition. Michael and his children were exhaustedby the terrible, unjust prosecution, and needed to start a new chapter in their lives. “Because Michael Jackson was our client, and is our friend, Attorney SusanYu and I agreed to help him, and his family, during this time of transition.For approximately seven months, we assisted Michael Jackson in thiseffort.“We never intended to assume these obligations on a permanentbasis. For example, my love is Criminal defense. I will be in trial in the State of Alabama during April and June, in two Capital murder cases,in which I am representing the client free of charge. I am also assistingin the development of a free legal clinic for the poor at a prominentAfrican American church in Los Angeles. Attorney Susan Yu hasother clients that she needs to attend to as well.“We are still in communications with Michael Jackson, and his assistants,and remain close friends. Mr. Jackson completely understands thesituation and is grateful to us for helping him with the transition. Thespeculation that surrounds this situation is nothing but shallow tabloidreporting.“People should leave Mr. Jackson and his family alone.”
