Insurance Worries

It seems that in addition to the strains of the trial, Michael Jackson may have some insurance worries.

It is speculated that he may get "short shrift" from his insurers, if he tries to claim the costs of his trial from them.

There is seemingly a difference between civil and criminal trials, in terms of possible insurance indemnity; specifically, it is much harder to claim cover for criminal trials.

It is estimated that the legal costs of the trial, to Jackson, will hit around $10M.


  1. Do you have a source for the $10M figure?

  2. The current estimate, according to the media stories today, is $20M
