Jackson's child abuse trial – ball of wax

Jury selection in the &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/science/19/95/380/10224_tatu.html' target=_blank>Michael Jackson child abuse trial has been halted after a member of the star's legal team was hit by family illness.

Selection will be postponed until at least Thursday due to the grave illness of his lead lawyer's sister.

The case had been due to resume on Monday, with detailed questioning of 250 would-be jurors. Mr Jackson denies plying a boy with alcohol and molesting him. The trial could last up to six months, says BBC News.

There's an adage around most courthouses that a trial is often won or lost in jury selection -- and that may never be more true than in Michael Jackson's &to=http:// english.pravda.ru/world/2003/11/26/51472.html' target=_blank>child molestation case, legal experts say.
