    Someone needs to pay for this crime fast because it takes to long anyone is looking to Sony as well and the scams who work for MJ?

    @Anna, I agree with you and I don't believe Ortega was involved in Michael's death. In promoting the film, he had to go along with AEG's and Sony's game plan, but being under oath in court is a different situation. And I'm sure finally coming out with the truth is what got him dismissed from Katherine Jackson's lawsuit. At trial, if called again, he cannot change his under-oath testimony given at the prelim; he will be a good witness for the prosecution against Murray. As for why others weren't named originally, there are provisions in the complaint for bringing in what's known as "Doe" defendants when their identities are discovered, so even Dr. Murray could be brought into this civil suit in the future.

    I do agree it's too bad Kenny lied in order to promote the film. However, lying to cover up what he knew as the truth does not mean he was guilty of being involved in MJ's death as the lawsuit spelled out. I'm glad he was dismissed from that atleast. I hope that he continues to tell the truth about he knows because it does need to be revealed how AEG and others were involved. I'm actually suprised there weren't more people named. I wonder though if in defending themselvs the defendents will throw other people under the bus when the time comes.

    I am glad that Mr Ortega was not involved in MJ death. I'm gald there was someone there for him. I would have loved to have been there for him too but situations kept me from doing what I wanted to do in regards for MJ. I always wanted to reach out to him but was never able to. I miss MJ. I love the Michael cd. I hope we get more of Michael's music in the future from stuff he has already recorded. He was and is the best. We no longer have performers we just have singers and actors. Elvis, Michael, Porter Wagoner,Johhny Cash and to a lesser extent Cher, Dean Martin, and Bob Hope to me were true performers. especially Michael and Elvis

    Kenny Ortega was let off the hook due to his testimony at the prelim which went against Murray. When Kenny was promoting the film This Is It, he said Michael was fine, in good spirits, danced like a 20 year old, etc., but now, seeing that a change of testimony will buddy him up with the Jackson family, suddenly Michael was ill and not able to perform. I believe his second version, sadly, is closer to the truth, but too bad Kenny was in bed with AEG when they promoted the film.

    THAN GOD jACKSONS HAD ENOUGH SENSE TO REALIZE KENNY ORTEGA NOT ONLY WAS A DEAR FRIEND OF MICHAEL'S, BUT HE HAD THE UTMOST RESPECT FOR HIM AS A HUMAN BEING, FATHER AND PERFORMER. MJ TOUCHED THIS MAN IN WAYS UNIMAGINABLE AND HE ALWAYS STATED HOW MUCH HE RESPECTED HIM AS A HUMAN BEING AND PERFORMER. KENNY'S MEMORIES OF MJ WARMED MY HEART AND MADE ME SO HAPPY THAT MJ REALLY HAD PEOPLE WHO CARED ABOUT HIM AND WERE CONCERNED ABOUT HIM FIRST AS A PERSON AND SECONDLY AS A PERFORMER.
