Tom Mesereau Has Been Added to The Michael Jackson Estate Legal Team (1 Viewer)

Tom Mesereau, who as we all know successfully defended Michael Jackson in his 2005 criminal trial in which he was acquitted on all counts, has (according to Showbiz 411) officially joined the Estates legal team in its arbitration case over the 'Leaving Neverland' TV show. Mesereau has continued to defend Michael Jackson over the years, especially since the airing of the HBO mockumentary Leaving Neverland in 2019 and was doing some consultancy work for the estate.

The Estates suit against HBO involves a contract the network had with Michael Jackson dating back to 1992 for a concert film, the contract included a non-disparagement clause which HBO agreed to. According to Showbiz 411, arbitrators are being chosen now and the process is set to begin within the next month.

Tom Mesereau of course called Wade Robson to the stand as the first witness for the defence in 2005 and if Robson testifies at the arbitration, he may very well be facing Mesereau again.

It is fantastic to see that Tom Mesereau has joined the Estates team along with Bryan Freedman and Jonathan Steinsapir!

Further quote from Associated Press -
“We’re at an absolute turning point,” Branca said. “I think people have come to realize that Michael was innocent of any charges and unable to protect himself. We’ve got a wonderful Broadway play coming, we’ll be reopening our Cirque du Soleil show soon and we’ve got some surprises coming.”

Time to kick arse, Tom. Imagine Tom + Robson being face to face in the same room. Will he (Robson) have the guts? This surely will make MSM (for good reasons).

I've just added a quote from the Associated Press article to include a snippet from JB. Surprises coming eh? I'll bet it's something small, or another piece of chalk - but I hope I'm surprised. Either way, things moving is a great thing!

Guess they must be licensing out some new slot machines in Las Vegas again...

I have no idea what the scope of questioning will be if Robson takes the stand, but I’m sure he will be sweating it having to face Mesereau again.

I've won some decent money on those slots. And then lost it again. :D

That said, I'd prefer they licence original content.
