Not All Honey and Roses in Neverland

It seems that even Michael Jackson, and his team, can't have it their own way all the time.

His case suffered a setback yesterday, when his lawyers failed to have the evidence seized during a raid on Neverland dismissed.

Jackson's team had asked Judge Rodney Melville to dismiss the evidence, on the basis that the search warrant was obtained by "malicious inaccuracies and omissions".

It seems that one of the "malicious inaccuracies", according to the defence team anyway, was the claim that Jackson's lackeys had spilled a urine sample from the child accusing Jackson of molestation; thus preventing it being analysed.

One of the omissions seems to be a psychologist's report, that noted Jackson did not fit the profile of a child molester.

However, all of this was to no avail. Judge Melville ruled that the evidence is admissible.

The defence are now compiling a list of specific items that they want dismissed from the evidence. This list must be submitted by tomorrow.
