Michael Jackson gets new court summons - to serve as a juror
Friday 21 October 2005
The computer-generated summons appears to be causing some embarrassment at the Santa Barbara county court house in California, where officials have been quick to say they expect Mr Jackson to be exempted.
The singer, 46, is not planning to argue he is too well known, or too weird, to sit in judgment of one of his peers. Instead, his lawyers plan to say that he is now a full-time resident of Bahrain. Mr Jackson has spent much time recently as a house guest of Bahrain's crown prince, Sheikh Salman ibn Hamed Khalifa, and passed little or no time at his Neverland ranch.
