The lawyers acting for Michael Jackson have accused the prosecution of tardiness, with regard to handing over documents that could help the defence.
It seems that the prosecution have failed to hand over key documents, tapes and photos which were seized during a raid on Neverland.
In the USA complete "discovery" is vital for any defence team in a trial. Tom Mesereau, Michael Jackson's lawyer, has noted that the prosecution has yet to satisfy basic discovery needs.
It seems that the investigation, mounted by the prosecution, involved a staggering amount of people and documents.
Friday will see another appearance by all sides, in front of Judge Rodney Melvile in Santa Maria. There they will argue motions, including one to reduce Jackson's three million dollar bail.
