The Neverland Saga

Despite protestations by Jermaine Jackson that Neverland will be sold "over my dead body".

Michael Jackson's lawyer, L. Londell McMillan, has a more realistic view of the situation. The auction of Neverland was postponed from the 19th of March until May 14th, by the "mutual agreement" of Jackson and his creditors.

McMillan says:

"That allows us to refinance or sell the property."

Why keep a property that Jackson clearly has no intention of setting foot in again?

Civil Case May Not Happen

The civil case against Michael Jackson and Marian Medical Center may not happen, according to the defendant's lawyer.

The family of Manuela Ruiz (a 74 year old at the time of her death) alleges that she was pushed out of her hospital room, in order to make room for Jackson in 2005. Ruiz later died.

Maria Ortiz, along with Rosa and Marcos Meraz, are suing over what they say was preferential treatment.

However, the plaintiffs did not appear in court on Monday. The hospital's lawyer says that they have not secured a lawyer.

A statement released by the hospital to Action News says:

"Patient care and safety is always our first priority at Marian. We have always been confident the care provided to Mrs Ruiz was exceptional. We continue to express our sympathy to the Ruiz family."

Neverland Update

It seems that Michael Jackson's reprieve from selling Neverland at auction this month, may in fact be only a temporary reprieve rather than a final solution.

Julie Wagner of Financial Title Company of San Francisco, which filed the default papers, said the auction has been postponed until May 14 by "mutual agreement".
