Michael Jackson Remembered

DRESSED FOR COURT

Throughout his 2005 child molestation trial, Jackson had problems arriving on time to court. On March 10, Judge Rodney S. Melville threatened to issue an arrest warrant if the pop star didn't appear immediately. The pop star's defense attorney claimed that Jackson was hospitalized for back pain, but Jackson eventually arrived – minutes after the judge would have to make good on his threat – sporting slippers, pajama bottoms, a white undershirt and blue blazer.
