Jackson Video Tape Case Heading To Retrial

Two lawyers who worked for MICHAEL JACKSON have revived their legal battle with the owner of a private jet company who secretly filmed a private meeting with the superstar in 2003.
XtraJet boss Jeffrey Borer has admitted videotaping the Thriller hitmaker and his attorneys onboard one of his planes as they flew from Las Vegas to Santa Barbara, California, where the star faced a trial on child molestation charges. He was later acquitted.
Borer pleaded guilty to a criminal charge of conspiracy in 2006, and Mark Geragos and Pat Harris launched a lawsuit in the civil courts.
They were awarded a massive $20 million (£12.5 million) settlement after the case concluded, but in January (10) an appeals court judge overturned the ruling and changed the payment to just $750,000 (£469,000).
Geragos vowed to fight the judgement and he has now been awarded a new trial, which will see the pair head back to court in Los Angeles to fight for their settlement.
The invasion of privacy case will begin at Los Angeles Superior Court on 14 February (11), according to the Associated Press.
