Celebrity attorney MARK GERAGOS and his partner have settled a seven-year legal battle with the owner of a charter jet company who secretly recorded footage of them talking with then-client Michael Jackson during his child molestation case.
Jeffrey Borer, the owner of XtraJet, attempted to sell video of the three men chatting during a flight from Las Vegas to Santa Barbara, California, where the King of Pop turned himself in to police in November, 2003.
As part of the settlement, Borer must hand over $2.5 million (£1.6 million).
Geragos argued that the taping, which featured no audio, violated the privacy and attorney-client privilege of the lawyers and Jackson.
They were originally awarded $20 million (£12.5 million), but an appeals court struck down that judgment.

Maybe, just maybe, there will be more justice for Michael from now on. One by one, hopefully all those that unmercifully tore him down bit by bit for so many years will now have to start answering to a higher authority. Those that only have to answer to a earthly judge will be the lucky ones!
