Jackson's Attorney Seeks $2 Million In Tape Suit

LATEST: MICHAEL JACKSON's former attorney is seeking at least $2 million (GBP1 million) in damages for being secretly videotaped aboard a private jet with the pop star. Lawyer MARK GERAGOS, who was taped with Jackson on a November 2003 flight from Las Vegas to Santa Barbara, California, is suing now-defunct jet company XtraJet. At the time, Jackson was flying to Santa Barbara to surrender on child molestation charges. He was acquitted in 2005. Geragos' attorney appeared in court yesterday (24JAN07) claiming the $2 million in compensatory damages was fair given that XtraJet's owners offered to sell the tape for up to that amount. His lawyer, BRIAN J KABATECK, also urged the judge to assess $18 million (GBP9.2 million) in punitive damages. Attorney LLOYD KIRSCHBAUM, who represents former XtraJet owner JEFFREY BORER, claims the attorney-client relationship was never breached because there wasn't proof of an audio recording. He said, "From the very first day of this case they have known there was no sound involved." The judge declined to issue a ruling and took the case under submission.
