Dave Dave, who was set on fire as a child by his father and befriended by Michael Jackson during his recovery, reclaimed a condominium last week that someone posing as Jackson's cousin had been accused of stealing from him.
Dave was also awarded $93K. Dave's lawyer was Brian Oxman, who took the case on at the request of Jackson.
Dave was 6 when his father covered him in kerosene, and set him on fire in an Orange County motel room during a custody dispute.
Dave alleged that Darnello Jackson posed as Michael Jackson's cousin to gain his trust, and tricked him into signing over his $335K condominium in Inglewood.
The two met in 2003 at Neverland.
Darnello Jackson did not appear for the hearing or file any court papers.
The lesson here is clear, always check out someone's background when conducting business with them.
