You gotta love the judge in the Michael Jackson trial....who has put his foot down and won't put up with Michael's candy @ss excuses for being tardy or absent...<br><br>[i][b]"Thursday's trial proceedings got off to a late start when Jackson failed to arrive on time for the scheduled 8:30 a.m. (11:30 a.m. ET) start.<br><br>Defense lawyer Thomas Mesereau Jr. told Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge Rodney S. Melville that his client was at a hospital for treatment of a "serious back problem."<br><br>But Melville, who last month had to delay jury selection by a week after Jackson was briefly hospitalized with the flu, refused to accept the excuse. The judge threatened to revoke Jackson's $3 million bail and jail him for the remainder of the trial if he didn't show up within an hour. <br><br>Jackson missed Melville's deadline by three minutes. Appearing disheveled and wearing pajama bottoms and sandals, Jackson walked slowly into the courthouse."<br><br>
and the judge didn't throw his sorry ass in jail?!! Like any of us would have gotten that sort of leniency!<br><br>
