    Authorities want Michael Jackson back in court -- this time as a juror.

    Jackson received a jury summons at his Neverland Valley Ranch, four months after he was acquitted of child-molestation charges.

    "It's just one of those ironies of life that he'd be called as a juror," said Laurie Levenson, a professor at Loyola School of Law who monitored Jackson's trial.

    It is unlikely that Jackson will show up for jury selection.

    His lawyers have filed paperwork for a deferment based on the fact that he now lives in Bahrain.

    "He is permanently living outside of the United States," Thomas Mesereau, who defended Jackson against the child-molestation charges, said on Wednesday.

    Jury commissioner Gary Blair said Jackson will likely be excused from serving.

    "All he has to do is show he has legal residency somewhere else and he'll be exempted," Blair said.

    Astonishingly enough, this is directly (allegedly) from the horse's a$$:

    t's unlikely that Jackson will show up for jury selection. His lawyers have filed paperwork for a deferment based on the fact that he now lives in Bahrain.

    "He is permanently living outside of the United States," Thomas Mesereau, who defended Jackson against the child molestation charges, said Wednesday.

    why is Mesereau speaking for Jackson? is he on a retainer?

    I have from time to time wondered how I've managed to escape ever being called for jury duty. Kinda like not really wanting to go to the dance, but wishing someone would ask you anyway.. :laugh: Now, this guy gets called!?!? Ok..just not gonna think about it anymore:doh:
