Pt. 2: Explosive Court Docs Reveal Accusing Family’s Stormy Past – MB #227

Pt. 2: Explosive Court Docs Reveal Accusing Family’s Stormy Past – MJEOL Bullet #227
Allegations from a previous JC Penney civil case appears to be closely related to current Jackson allegations

We pick up with Part Two of this special MJEOL Bullet about explosive new court documents recently released. A court hearing was held November 29 2004 in this “case”.

Jackson’s attorneys may have failed, for now, to get their own independent psychological examination of the accuser, but prosecutors also failed to get the defense’s right to subpoena witnesses and records taken way.

Recently released info from local paper Santa Barbara News-Press (SBNP) revealed a reason why the defense may want their hands on the mother’s medical records. She, apparently, has lied about her medical condition—involving gynecological reports–before, coached her children to lie under oath before, and leveled false sex abuse allegations before in a civil case against department store JC Penney.

Since some TV lawyers, like Dan Abrams, seemed to only have glommed onto the defense request for gynecological records, today (Nov 30) brings a bit of possible clarity to the issue.

The SBNP report, “Jackson defense loses bid to conduct mental testing of accuser, family” dated Nov 30 2004, details some of the incredulous allegations level against JC Penney by this family. From the report:

The documents obtained by the News-Press and NBC were compiled by Dr. John Hochman, identified as an assistant clinical professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Neurology at UCLA…

Quoting the mother, Dr. Hochman said that after the J.C. Penney incident, she “saw a gynecologist due to irregularities in her menstruating and she was this way because her body was traumatized and ‘every hormone in her body was being released.’ “

There is no evidence confirming (the mother’s) testimony she had to get her hormones straightened out due to the mall episode.” (see Jackson defense loses bid to conduct mental testing of accuser, family)

Pt 1: Explosive Court Declaration Shows Damning Info – MJEOL Bullet #227
Declaration by Jackson attorney Brian Oxman discusses incredibly damaging info about the accusing family’s credibility and current allegations

Explosive new court documents (docs) were released recently that may have completely obliterated the accusing family’s conspiracy allegations in the Michael Jackson “case”.

 The info is so damaging that most of the general media has so far stayed away from even reporting in detail what was stated in the redacted defense docs. What are they afraid of? Jackson attorney Brian Oxman discussed the accusing family’s changing stories and request for psychological examinations.

Even though a number of lines are blacked out in the court doc, much more info about the history of the accusing family is revealed. The history of this family is relevant because what some commentators don’t yet understand is that this is no longer a he-said/he-said “case”.

The accusing family—the mother, the sister, and the accuser’s brother—are also leveling specific allegations against Jackson about the way they were treated and what they allegedly suffered at the hands of Jackson or his employees.

That makes their history and credibility fair game as well. Oxman is the attorney who issued a subpoena which sparked the prosecution’s cry-baby motion as discussed in MJEOL Bullet #225: Prosecutors Whining After Obtaining Numerous Search Warrants.

In his declaration, Oxman states that contrary to what prosecutors are claiming, the subpoena does not violate the privacy of any of the accusing family members. As a matter of fact, Oxman writes, the Court has already endorsed these subpoenas.

In direct violation of this Court’s July 9 2004 order __________________ have informed the prosecution of the existence of a subpoena.

Defense: DA Attempting to Shield Witnesses from Cross-Examination – MB#226

Defense: DA Attempting to Shield Witnesses from Cross-Examination – MB#226 Prosecutors complained to the judge that Jackson’s attorneys wanted too much information about the accusing family. Now the defense has responded to the prosecution’s claims. They say the DA is attempting to “shield” the accusing family from scrutiny, and also want the defense to reveal their strategy in newly released documents dated Nov 23 2004. In the defense’s Opposition to District Attorney’s Request that Court Modify It’s Teal Order, they say that in accordance with the law they are not required to reveal defense strategy to prosecutors. They also make the argument that DA Tom Sneddon had an opportunity to question the Teal motion’s scope. Now these prosecutors want to change the game to handicap the defense. The defense also says the very notion of a Teal motion—which allows defense attorneys to “develop and investigate their cases” without notifying prosecutors of their intentions—would be meaningless if they had to clear their subpoenas with prosecutors. From the motion:

Defense counsel is not required to disclose potential defense strategies or work product to the prosecutor as a condition of receiving documents produced pursuant to a subpoena duces tecum. (See Teal v Superior Court (Barrett) (2000) 80 Cal. App. 4th 1305, 1320.) (see Defense’s Reply to DA’s Request to Modify Teal Motion 11-24-04 pg 2)
