Another Court Case

Michael Jackson finds himself involved in yet another court case today.

This time US District Judge Eldon Fallon will be hearing why Michael Jackson should not be held in civil contempt, or have a default judgment entered against him.

Neither Jackson nor his attorney appeared at a hearing last month, in a federal civil case that accuses Jackson of sexual assault during the 1984 World's Fair.

The hearing was a procedural matter, in which Jackson was supposed to show that he had legal representation.

Brian Oxman, a spokesman for the Jackson family, says that the allegations made in the lawsuit are false. He called the plaintiff, Joseph Thomas Bartucci Junior, one of many people who have tried to take advantage of Jackson's wealth and celebrity.

Bartucci claims he was lured into Jackson's limousine by one of Jackson's employees, then held against his will for days and sexually assaulted during a drive to California and back.

Bartucci was 18 at the time and claims he repressed the memories until 2003, when he saw media coverage of child molestation charges brought against Jackson.
