Judge Rodney Melville will hear arguments from the lawyers in the Michael Jackson case, about whether evidence from the 1993 Jordie Chandler case of molestation should be admitted.
The case was never publicly heard, as Chandler accepted a very large payoff from Jackson.
If Judge Melville agrees to the hearing, he will first hear the boy and other witnesses in the 1993 case; before deciding as to whether they should testify before the trial jury.
California law allows testimony from previous cases to be heard in court, to establish whether a defendant's prior conduct suggests a history of child molestation.
Ironically, this legislation was enacted after the dropped 1993 complaint against Jackson.
