The lawyers in Michael Jackson's trial, seem to be getting a tad tetchy with each other.
It is reported that Michael Jackson's defence team have requested that the prosecution team be penalised for, allegedly, delaying the release of a document which outlines planning for the raid on Neverland in November 2003.
The defence are peeved that the plan was not shown to them, until two working days before the 16 August hearing.
The plan, so it is alleged, contains details of events and interviews leading up to the raid.
Needless to say, the defence team are using this "delay" to press for the evidence gleaned from the Neverland raid to be suppressed.
It seems to me that evidence, if it is relevant, should be admitted whether or not there was an alleged "delay" in disclosure.
However, I am not a lawyer and therefore cannot be expected to grasp the finer points of the defence's reasoning on this matter!
Doubtless I will be enlightened, when the suppress motion is heard on 16 September.
