Jackson Has The Flu

Jackson has the flu, jury selection delayed

Jury selection at the Michael Jackson trial has been delayed for a week. This, after Jackson was taken to a hospital this morning with the flu. The judge says Jackson was on his way to court this morning, but was taken to a hospital emergency room instead. He later told prospective jurors that Jackson is being admitted. He said jury selection would resume a week from today.

Questioning of about 240 prospective jurors began yesterday, as prosecutors and defense attorneys try to select 12 jurors and eight alternates.
