No Deal, Jacko: In an interesting twist, the very thing that got MJ off from criminal prosecution in the 1993 child molestation case, that is $15MM, won't be able to help him now. It turns out CA passed a law that prevents a civil suit from coinciding with a criminal suit, whereby one of the terms of the settlement to the civil suit is that the Plaintiff/victim cannot testify in the criminal forum. It also turns out that this law was passed directly in response to the first MJ case. This means MJ better have some strong alibis, because I don't think he's going to want a jury to hear something similar to this.
