[b]BLAZE MENACES NEVERLAND[/b] DAWN HOBBS, NEWS-PRESS STAFF WRITER August 26, 2006 6:53 AM Black smoke billowed from Michael Jackson’s Neverland Valley Ranch on Friday afternoon as a blaze charred more than 40 acres of the sprawling Los Olivos estate. The fire, which was fueled by light brush and grass, came within 200 yards of buildings, but more than 100 firefighters from Santa Barbara County Fire Department, Vandenberg Air Force Base and the U.S. Forest Service managed to keep it at bay. It’s not known how many animals were in the ranch zoo, which in the past has been home to a menagerie including elephants, giraffes, llamas and a camel, but authorities confirmed that none was evacuated. “The animals are being taken care of and there are no problems with them,” said county Fire Department Capt. Keith Cullom. By 7:30 p.m., the fire was fully contained.

[b]Jackson’s Friend Wins Condo Lawsuit[/b] By Associated Press 8:30 PM PDT, August 18, 2006 LOS ANGELES — A man who was set on fire as a child by his father and befriended by Michael Jackson during his recovery reclaimed a condominium Friday that someone posing as the pop star’s cousin had been accused of bilking from him. A superior court judge signed a default judgment returning the property to Dave Dave, formerly known as David Rothenberg, said his attorney, Brian Oxman. Dave was also awarded $93,000 in damages, according to Oxman, who said he took on the case at Jackson’s request. “This is a case where the most vulnerable was taken advantage of,” Oxman said. Dave, 28, was 6 when his father doused him with kerosene and set him on fire in an Orange County motel room during a custody dispute. More than 90 percent of Rothenberg’s body was burned.

Trial Review: King and Viner tell Judge about Feldman’s Confession – MB#316
AUGUST 1 2006 – It has been over a year since Michael Jackson was acquitted on all false charges of child molestation by a conservative Santa Maria jury on June 13 2005. Believe it or not, there are still members of the public who are and have been completely in the dark concerning details of and around the trial.
The day before yesterday, I received an email asking “Hey didn’t Larry King have something to do with the trial?” The requester wanted more information. And apparently, he isn’t the only one.
With that in mind, MJEOL will pick up its Trial Review series because there is just so much information that was shallowly covered by the mainstream media or not covered at all.
This trial review deals with the non-jury testimonies of CNN talkshow host Larry King and Michael Viner, both of whom were present when civil attorney Larry Feldman (yeah, that Larry Feldman), made some startling comments about the accuser’s mother, Janet Arvizo. At last check, Arvizo was scheduled to go on trial for perjury and welfare fraud.
