The Jackson List

Michael Jackson’s defense lawyers have unveiled a list of prospective defense witnesses, and it’s every bit as eccentric and odd as Jackson himself.

Appearing on the defense witness list: actress Elizabeth Taylor; musician Stevie Wonder; singer Diana Ross; talk show host Jay Leno; producer Quincy Jones; actor Chris Tucker; basketball star Kobe Bryant; talk show host Larry King; TV journalist Ed Bradley; talk show host Maury Povich; singer Nick Carter and his brother Aaron; illusionist David Blaine; author Deepak Chopra; actor Corey Feldman; and relatives of actor Marlon Brando.

The inclusion of Kobe Bryant prompted the biggest reaction. Laurie Levenson, a professor at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles and a former federal prosecutor had this to say about Kobe Bryant’s inclusion, “”Kobe Bryant didn’t want to be called in his own case, why would he want to take the stand in somebody else’s trial”?

Update: Michael Jackson Hospitalized With Flu.

Update 2: Keeping Jackson on the same floor as the pediatric unit seems like a bad idea…

List compiled from via AP wire and the L.A. Times. Quote from the same L.A. Times story.
