Richard SennefParamedic Testifies. 30-04-'13

The first witness called Tuesday was Richard Senneff, one of the Los Angeles County paramedics who responded to the 911 call from Michael Jackson's home on June 25, 2009. He testified on behalf of Michael Jackson's mother and his three children.

Senneff mostly repeated the testimony he gave as one of the first witnesses in the Murray trial:

"The patient appeared to be chronically ill to me," Senneff testified, saying he could see Jackson's ribs. "He was very pale and underweight. I thought perhaps this was a hospice patient." "He looked like someone who was at the end stage of a long disease process."

"No, no, this just happened," Murray told him, Senneff said.

Jackson was not breathing and appeared to be dead, he said. Michael Jackson seemed so far gone, Senneff asked if there was a DNR - do not resuscitate - order.

Senneff also described seeing an IV pole and bag by the patient's bed.

Conrad Murray identified himself to Senneff as Michael Jackson's "personal physician,” according to the paramedic.

"Even for Bel Air, a personal physician is unusual," Senneff testified.

The words “personal physician” could play slightly in favor of AEG defense lawyers, who want to show that Murray was under Michael Jackson’s control.

Murray appeared "frantic" but never mentioned that the "Thriller" singer had taken the anesthetic propofol, Senneff said.

"He was pale, he was sweating, he was very busy," Senneff said of Murray.

Senneff testified that Murray was less than truthful as paramedics struggled to revive Michael Jackson with CPR. Murray said he had been treating Jackson for dehydration.

" `When did this (cardiac arrest) happen?’ " Senneff said he asked. Murray, according to Senneff, replied: "Just now."

But Senneff said Jackson had no pulse, his pupils were fully dilated and his eyes were dry.

"To us it didn't make sense that it had just happened,” the paramedic told jurors. “His skin was very cool to the touch."

Senneff also described how he returned to the upstairs bedroom to retrieve some equipment after they had loaded Michael Jackson into the ambulance. That’s where he spotted Murray picking up items putting them into a white plastic bag.

"He looked like a deer in the headlights," Senneff said.

Murray never told the EMTs that he had administered the powerful anesthetic propofol, and family lawyer Brian Panish is expected to show that the doctor was trying to hide that evidence.

An AEG lawyer asked Senneff during cross-examination if he thought Murray was not telling him the truth.

"I don't even go there," he replied. "I'm not worried about that."

Senneff's testimony is important to informing the jury about the circumstances of Jackson's death, but the drama that filled the courtroom during the trial against Conrad Murray was not duplicated. In fact, humor sometimes emerged. Panish even asked Senneff whether he had ever rescued a cat.

"I have not rescued a cat," Senneff, who is also a firefighter, joked. "I rescued a dog that was lying in the street."

He also shared the ironic story of the next emergency he responded to after leaving Michael Jackson at the UCLA Medical Center's emergency room. His ambulance was called to a west Los Angeles apartment to help an elderly Russian woman, Senneff said.

"When she heard the news on TV that Michael Jackson had died, she fainted."

She suffered a minor head injury in her fall.

"She was just deeply emotional when we took her to the hospital," Senneff said.

Los Angeles Police Detective Orlando Martinez, who initially investigated Michael Jackson's death, is scheduled to be the second witness.

Judge MJ TrailJudge Limits Jackson Siblings' Attendance. 30-04-'13

Just one of Michael Jackson's brothers and sisters can sit in the courtroom at one time in the family's wrongful death suit against AEG Live, a judge ordered Tuesday.

AEG Live lawyers argued at the start of the second day of the trial that there was "a risk in allowing any of them in the courtroom." AEG expects to call Janet, Jermaine, Jackie, Tito, La Toya, Rebbie and Randy Jackson as witnesses in its defense. Only brother Marlon Jackson is not on the defense witness list. AEG lawyer Marvin Putnam said in his opening statement Monday that Jackson family members will testify about their failed attempts to intervene with Michael Jackson's drug addiction and their lack of knowledge about what was happening.

The defense lawyers asked that Randy Jackson, the only one attending the trial Tuesday with his mother, Katherine Jackson, be booted from court. After that, Jackson lawyer Brian Panish told the judge that Katherine Jackson (82), who can stay in court because she is a plaintiff, needed one of her children to sit with her each day.

"He can remain, but you cannot have five in the courtroom," Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos said.

Randy and Rebbie Jackson attended court Monday. All of the siblings attended the 2011 criminal trial of Dr. Conrad Murray at various times. Having members of the famous entertainment family in court could influence the jury because their seats are just a few feet away from the jury box in the small Los Angeles courtroom.

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson Song Kicks Off Trial. 30-04-'13

An attorney for Michael Jackson's mother has played a song during opening statements at a wrongful death trial that the lawyer says the superstar wrote for his children, titled "You Are My Life".

"You are the sun, you make me shine more like the stars that twinkle at night, You are the moon that glows in my heart, You're my day time, my nighttime, My world. You are my life."

Attorney Brian Panish also read jurors a note on Monday that the singer wrote to his mother to demonstrate their relationship.

Katherine Jackson is suing concert giant AEG Live, claiming it failed to properly investigate a doctor who cared for Jackson and was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter in his 2009 death.

AEG has denied wrongdoing as Panish told jurors they would ultimately decide whether to find AEG liable for Jackson's death and how much his mother and children should receive.

Only 16 journalists and a few members of the public will be allowed inside the courtroom because many of its 45 seats are reserved for parties involved in the trial, including the Jackson family. Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos denied CNN's request to televise the trial.

New Software Captures Facial Expressions And Makes Michael Jackson Avatar Dance. 30-04-'13

“Face Dance” is an interactive video installation that lets participants control a dancing Michael Jackson avatar with their face. The installation uses a camera and facial recognition software to capture the facial expressions of the participant. Certain facial expressions result in different dance moves by the avatar.

The installation was created by filmmaking duo Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost (Supermarché), and coders Aaron Meyers, Lauren McCarthy, and James George during a December 2012 hackathon hosted by New Cinema in New York City.

AEG TrailMichael Jackson Wrongful Death Trial Begins. 29-04-'13

The Michael Jackson wrongful death trial, which promises dramatic revelations and legal fireworks, begins in a small Los Angeles courtroom with opening statements Monday.

Jurors earning $15 a day will listen to several months of testimony before deciding whether one of the world’s largest entertainment companies should pay Jackson’s mother and three children billions of dollars for its liability in the pop icon’s death.

Famous Jackson family members, including Janet, will sit just a few feet from the jury as Michael’s oldest son and daughter describe their father’s last days.

But they will also endure weeks of tedious testimony from medical and financial experts offering opinions about the singer’s health, addiction and career.

Only a handful of journalists and a few members of the public will be allowed inside the courtroom because many of its 45 seats are reserved for parties involved in the trial, including the Jackson family.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos denied CNN’s request to televise the trial.

Pretrial hearings have featured angry and personal exchanges between lawyers for the two sides, made more intense by the intimacy of the tiny courtroom.

Photo Of Paris And Debbie. 28-04-'13

Paris Jackson grew up without her mother after Debbie Rowe signed away all parental rights to Paris' father Michael Jackson in 2001, when she was just three years old.

But since Michael's death in 2009, mother and daughter are trying to make up for lost time by slowly forging a close relationship.

And the first picture of the pair together has surfaced, showing Debbie with her arm around Paris as they celebrated the teenager's 15th birthday at Ahi Sushi in Studio City, California on April 3, reports Entertainment Tonight.

Paris appeared serene and content as she leaned in close to her mother, a dermatologist's nurse, who looked thrilled to be included in her daughter's birthday celebration.

Paris - the youngest of Michael and Debbie's two children - showed off her edgy style by wearing her short dark hair swept across her forehead and highlighting her eyes with thick black liner.

The resemblance between the pair is clear, especially in the colour and shape of their eyes and their noses.

AEG LiveMichael Jackson-AEG Attorneys Get A Time Limit For Statements. 27-04-'13

Attorneys in the Michael Jackson wrongful-death case will each be held to a 2 1/2-hour opening statement when trial opens Monday in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom. Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos said she hoped the time limit would keep the statements from spilling over into the next day, when witnesses could be called to the stand.

Palazuelos also plans to rule on multiple outstanding motions, including whether to unseal the music legend’s medical records and preclude certain testimony from expert witnesses.

Brian Panish, attorney for the Jackson family, said he did not know who would be called first from a list of witnesses that is lengthy and celebrity studded. In addition to Jackson’s family members and his ex-wives, Debbie Rowe and Lisa Marie Presley, plaintiffs’ attorneys have indicated they could call music industry heavyweights Quincy Jones, Diana Ross and Prince.

Attorneys expect to focus on Michael Jackson’s medical condition, which is why both sides have requested that the singer’s medical files be unsealed. Jackson’s estate, although not a party in the suit, has requested that certain portions of those files be kept private.

Among the experts that the defense took issue with is certified public accountant Arthur Erk, who projected in his deposition that Michael Jackson could have earned $269 million on a series of Las Vegas shows featuring his music, as well as $50 million in a clothing deal. Sabrina Strong, an attorney for AEG, said that was unrealistic for a performer who had many failed projects.

“That’s a hope, a dream, that’s not a basis for damages,” she said.

In hearings leading up to the trial, tension has been high in the courtroom, with attorneys trading barbs and pointed comments. Panish has accused the defense of turning every motion into “World War III,” and AEG’s attorneys have sounded off about what they called the plaintiffs’ lack of professionalism.

On Thursday, attorneys quibbled over the audio-visual equipment to be used during the trial. Despite plaintiffs’ protests, Palazuelos ruled that the courtroom would use monitors provided by the defense. Panish insisted his firm had no reason to shoulder any of the equipment cost, estimated to be about $6,000 a month.

“AEG can afford it,” he said.

“Your honor, we have to stop those type of references,” said Marvin Putnam, a partner with O’Melveny & Myers.

Panish countered, “I’m not AEG, I’m not worth billions of dollars.”

Celine DionCeline Shocked By Michael’s Death. 27-04-'13

When Michael visited Celine Dion backstage after one of her Las Vegas shows in 2009, she said, “I thought he was more than sharp, he was (in) top shape.”

He had visited her after watching her performance, and she explained,

“I just couldn’t believe Michael Jackson came to see the show. I was very, very… proud. It was amazing. He was amazing. He was getting ready for the show (‘This Is It’) and all that and working on it and you… probably all saw the movie (‘This Is It’) – unfortunately that’s the last piece of him that we saw.
“I think most of us thought that he was very sick and weak and all that, and when I saw the movie I was shocked and very disappointed that he was gone because I thought he was more than sharp, he was (in) top shape.”

The Immortal World TourIMMORTAL Tour Comes To China. 27-04-'13

AEG China announced today that the blockbuster show Michael Jackson "THE IMMORTAL World Tour" will come to Shanghai and Hong Kong in August 2013.

The event's promoter posted a short message on their micro blog, saying: "The globally acclaimed Michael Jackson "THE IMMORTAL World Tour" will land on China! The show is produced by Cirque du Soleil, and is a riveting fusion of 3D visuals, dance, music, and fantasy and will take you into the story of the greatest entertainer of the 20th century."

AEG said that there will be five shows in Shanghai from August 15-18, and then the tour will land in Hong Kong to perform August 22-25. The promoter didn't elaborate as to when tickets will go on sale, but rumors point to early May.

Jackson's "THE IMMORTAL World Tour" was written and directed by Jamie King, who has previously worked with Britney Spears, Madonna and Rihanna. The Tour just finished its European leg and will soon head to Asia, starting from Japan in May.

"THE IMMORTAL World Tour" has so far generated US$270 million box office worldwide and was the second highest grossing tour of 2012 in the U.S., just behind Madonna's "MDNA Tour," according to Pollstar.

The new Michael Jackson resident show "ONE," also produced by Cirque du Soleil, will open in June 2013 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino located in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Dr. Conrad MurrayDr. Murray Does 'Today Show' Interview From Prison. 26-04-'13

Disgraced cardiologist Conrad Murray, who’s currently serving a four-year prison sentence for his involvement in the death of Michael Jackson, recently filed an appeal on his case, claiming that his trial was unfair, that its jury should have been sequestered, and that ultimately he “didn’t do anything wrong.” Murray hopes to get his conviction overturned, allowing him to regain the ability to practice medicine when he’s released — and to live as a regular person rather than as a convicted felon.

Murray called in to the Today show this morning to discuss his appeal with host Savannah Guthrie, as well as his attorney, Valerie Wass. He reiterated that he does not take “any responsibility as it relates to [Jackson's] death,” saying that while he was sorry to lose the singer “as a friend and as a patient,” he will not take the blame for “something I didn’t do.” At that, Guthrie pushed back, reminding Murray that he was the one who both prescribed and administered the powerful anesthetic Propofol — the drug on which Jackson overdosed. In response, Murray said that while he did leave the room Jackson was in when he died, he did not leave behind any Propofol for the musician’s use.

NBC News reports that Murray will most likely be released from Los Angeles’s Central Jail in the fall of 2013.

Do his arguments seem sound, or did Murray deserve his conviction?

Michael Jackson’s Estate Requests To Keep Portions Of His Medical History Private In Civil Case.

The Estate Of Michael JacksonWith the Michael Jackson wrongful death civil trial around the corner, attorneys argued Thursday about a number of issues, including whether to unseal the music legend’s medical records and preclude certain testimony from expert witnesses.

Michael’s estate, although not a party in the suit, has requested that certain portions of his medical history be kept private. Patricia Millett, a lawyer for the estate, said she hadn’t spoken with attorneys in the civil case about which exhibits they planned to introduce.

“We won’t know precisely what we need until plaintiffs’ case is done,” said one of AEG’s attorneys Jessica Stebbins Bina. She added that the records were “relevant to the cause of his death, life expectancy and earning potential.”

Kevin Boyle, an attorney for the Jackson family, said he didn’t think the actual records would be a large component, but could become relevant. “The whole trial is going to be about Michael Jackson’s medical condition,” he said.

A deputy city attorney representing the Los Angeles Fire Department was also present Thursday and said records from the night Michael Jackson died were subject to HIPPA privacy laws.

Judge Yvette Palazuelos has yet to issue her final ruling.

LaToya JacksonLaToya Jackson Feels MJ’s Presence. 26-04-'13

LaToya Jackson still mourns the death of her brother Michael, but confessed to “Good Day New York” Wednesday that she believes he visits her. She told Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly that at times she feels Michael’s presence.

“It’s the strangest thing because you feel something like thick around you or behind you and you’re wondering,” she described. “You don’t see anything, but you feel a presence … It’s very interesting because it is there, it’s definitely there.”

Jackson said she’s not the only one who has questioned whether Michael’s spirit has come back to visit. Even one of the security guards in her home has attested to hearing tap dancing in the house. “When he told me I said ‘You’re kidding,’ that made me want to know even more about hearing someone tap dance over a certain part of the house,” she explained. “Michael used to do that every Sunday for two hours.”

After she too heard the tapping, La Toya said she went with the security guard to investigate. “We go up there and no one’s up there … and just tap dancing,” she recalled. “And the dog barks at his room, the window, every single night at the same time … the dog doesn’t even know that that’s Michael’s room, and the security didn’t know … so it’s weird.” She added, “I think quite a few people feel that.”

Neverland Being Restored. 25-04-'13

For the last four years since Michael passed away, Neverland has been ignored by his parents and siblings, but his children are now in the process of restoring their first home to the beautiful, tranquil place they loved.

The rides were rusting away, the staff had been dismissed and the grounds were abandoned but, his children are now in the process of restoring their first home to the beautiful, tranquil place they loved.

Paris spoke out last week about her heartbreaking visit to Neverland two years ago to find it in ruins, saying she is determined to rebuild Neverland to its former glory, so that underprivileged children can enjoy it.

Neverland Ranch

At Neverland last week, household staff and security said that Michael’s siblings or parents have never bothered to visit Neverland since his death. But they only had words of praise for the children, with one security guard saying: “Neverland has been completely revitalized. There’s a full set of staff and people in charge who care about the place.”

The bright yellow flowers spelling Neverland have been restored next to the main house, but this time flowers shaped in a butterfly have been added to one bed. There’s also a new section in the gardens of an image of a boy in a moon, similar to Peter Pan — the favourite fairy-tale character of Michael Jackson and his children.

The bustling fairground has been replaced with a tranquil “Zen garden.” The Ferris wheel, swings and other fairground rides have been removed, and expert horticulturists have replaced them with a calm seating area surrounded by lush topiary carved into animal shapes.

Dr. Conrad MurrayConrad Murray Files Appeal To His November 2011 Conviction. 25-04-'13

Conrad Murray said prosecutors failed to prove Michael Jackson was on a propofol drip the day he died from an overdose of the powerful sedative, which he was using to treat chronic insomnia. In a 231-page appeal filed by his lawyers in Los Angeles, he also alleged that the original trial judge excluded critical testimony used to convict him in November 2011.

“The jury was not allowed to learn that when Jackson died, he owed AEG close to $40-million; there were more than 30 lawsuits pending against him and he owed millions of dollars” to US tax authorities, it stated.

Prosecutors said that Murray, now 60, hooked Michael up to a continuous intravenous drip and left him alone and unmonitored, when MJ went into respiratory arrest. But Murray’s attorney Valerie Wass said Murray had been weaning Michael off propofol for three days and only gave him a 25-milligram injection to help him sleep, before putting him on a saline drip.

Michael Bush Book Signings In Europe. 25-04-'13

The expected appeal was filed ahead of the imminent start of a long-awaited wrongful death trial in which Michael’s mother Katherine is accusing the promoter of negligently hiring Murray to look after him.

Earlier this month, Murray broke his silence to say he does not want to testify at the civil Katherine Jackson vs AEG trial, to avoid incriminating himself for his own appeal. Murray has always protested his innocence, saying he was trying to get Michael off of propofol as he rehearsed in Los Angeles for the doomed ‘This is It’ comeback series of concerts in London.

“I am an innocent man … I maintain that innocence,” he told CNN on April 2, adding: “I am extremely sorry that Michael has passed. It’s a tremendous loss for me … he was very close to me … we were absolutely great friends.”

Fans in Europe are invited to attend the book signing events and meet and greet Michael's longtime costume designer and friend Michael Bush.

I always say I educated Michael and he educated me through the process," said author and designer Michael Bush. "Michael loved military style, Egyptian styles and the image of royalty as you can see in many of his most famous costumes and personal outfits. When we designed, we designed for show time, no matter what the occasion. When Michael was alive he always talked about us doing a book like this.

AEG TrailOpening Statements Set In Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Trial. 24-04-'13

Opening statements in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial will be heard Monday, April 29, with the first testimony soon to follow, the judge announced Tuesday.

Michael Jackson's mother and three children are suing AEG Live, claiming the concert promoter was liable in the pop star's June 25, 2009, death.

Jury selection concluded Tuesday afternoon with selection of six alternates to back up the 12 jurors chosen Monday.

Jackson Lawyer Brian Panish called it a "good, diverse" jury after the 12 main jurors were seated Monday.

The main jury panel includes six men and six women, and there are four male and two females alternates.

The trial, which could last three or four months, is expected to include testimony from Prince and Paris Jackson, the singer's two oldest children, and a list of celebrity witnesses.

Jackson died two weeks before his "This Is It" comeback concerts, organized by AEG Live, were to have debuted in London in summer 2009.

Lawyers for Jackson's mother, Katherine; and children, Prince, Paris and Blanket, argue that AEG Live is liable because the company hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, who used a surgical anesthetic in a fatal effort to treat the singer's insomnia as he prepared for the comeback concerts. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and is serving a prison sentence.

AEG Live's lawyers argue that Jackson chose and controlled Murray.

The lawsuit seeks a judgment against AEG Live equal to the money Jackson would have earned over the course of his remaining lifetime if he had not died in 2009. If AEG Live is found liable, it could cost the company several billion dollars, according to estimates of Jackson's income potential.

AEG Live is a subsidiary of AEG, a global entertainment company that was up for sale recently with an $8 billion asking price.

Prince JacksonPrince Jackson I'm Not Into Bonding With My Mom Right Now. 23-04-'13

Michael Jackson's 16-year-old son Prince Jackson is clearly into girls ... but NOT the grown woman who goes by "Mom" -- aka Debbie Rowe.

Sources with direct knowledge of the situation tell TMZ ... although Prince's sister has developed what we're told is "an intense bond" with the woman who gave birth to her ... Prince has no curiosity or desire to develop a relationship with Rowe ... at least for now.

We're told it's not that he has beef with Rowe ... it's that establishing a relationship with her is not on his radar. His 15-year-old sister Paris, on the other hand, now has a passion for nurturing a relationship with Rowe, and the 2 have spent a good deal of time together in the last few months.

Our sources say there's no conflict between Paris and Prince ... they just have different priorities.

As for Rowe, we're told she would absolutely like to have a relationship with Prince, but -- just the way it happened with Paris -- she wants it to develop naturally ... when Prince is ready.
