Attorney vs. Attorney
It is reported that a gaggle of attorneys who represent both Michael Jackson, and the media, made their cases for and against rescinding Tom Sneddon's gag order on Friday.
Attorney Theodore Boutrous, who represents the media, pleaded that the removal of the gag would ensure that more accurate information would be distributed; ensuring that spurious gossip and innuendo would be quashed.
However, batting for Michael Jackson, Thomas Mesereau reversed Jackson's previous attorney's objections to the gag; and supported it.
All of this guarantees even more coverage in the media.
