Michael Jackson’s ex-lawyer calls secret taping ‘distressing’

[b]Michael Jackson’s ex-lawyer calls secret taping ‘distressing'[/b] LOS ANGELES: Michael Jackson’s former lawyer testified he went to “almost paranoid lengths” to guard his client’s privacy after Jackson was secretly taped on a private jet headed to Santa Barbara to surrender in a child-molestation investigation. Attorney Mark Geragos, who accompanied Jackson on the plane, is suing jet company XtraJet over the November 2003 taping. Testifying on Tuesday in the non-jury trial, Geragos called the taping one of the worst experiences of his 24-year legal career. He said he obtained a court order preventing XtraJet’s then-owner, Jeffrey Borer, from selling the footage after learning of it through the media.
