It seems that Michael Jackson's defence team are determined to try to stop the trial going ahead in September.
It is reported that they have filed a motion for the charges against Michael Jackson to be dismissed; on the basis that the prosecution is incompetent, and that there is insufficient evidence.
Thomas Mesereau, Michael Jackson's lawyer, is reported to have complained that the prosecutor (Tom Sneddon) bullied and argued with witnesses during the grand jury hearings in March/April.
One witness, it seems, described Jackson as "the devil".
Mesereau is of the belief that Sneddon produced no evidence that implicated Jackson in abduction, imprisonment or extortion. It seems that, in Mesereau's eyes, Sneddon is biased and looking for a "celebrity scalp".
