FROM CNN WIRES:
Los Angeles (CNN) - AEG Live's lawyer warned jurors that "we're going to show some ugly stuff" as he began the defense's opening statement in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial Monday.
The concert promoter has no choice to reveal Jackson's "deepest, darkest secret" because the company must defend itself from the accusation from Jackson's family that it is responsible for the pop icon's death, Marvin Putnam said.
And so begins a trial, which could last several months, that promises dramatic revelations and legal fireworks. With opening statements delivered, the Jackson's call their first witness Tuesday morning - Orlando Martinez, the Los Angeles Police detective who investigated Jackson's death.
This morning on "Starting Point," Tom Mesereau, former atty for Michael Jackson, explains why he thinks AEG's arguments in wrongful death case could backfire.

Shame on Tom Mesearau for defending the pedophile which was and is MJ. To all his legal defense team, past and present. You will be judged in the end and made to pay for the sins you have committed. Ask Tom how much he made from this trial, thing is, he knew he had a ped on his hands and he still defended him to the end... money talks, xhit walks!
Doesn't surprise me – Philip Anschultz, AEG CEO is in some 'Christian' fundamentalist group that CHOSE to believe the worst about Michael Jackson all the way along! But just because judgemental Jesus FREAKS believe it don't make it true! The worst thing is that Michael's selfish, greedy "family have got no problem letting Michael's name/memory be dragged in the mud just so long as they try to get their hands on the $$$$$!
I have NEVER seen a man that has fought for a client like Tom Mesereau. He has been so loyal to MJ and his family.
May he be blessed.
