Michael Jackson Employees Ordered to Pay $1.4M in Fees and Costs
A group of ranch employees who sued pop singer Michael Jackson on a variety of complaints,
including charges that they were run off for cooperating with a child molestation investigation and charges of sexual harrasment, were ordered May 28 by a California Superior Court judge to pay more than $1.4M in court costs and attorneys fees. The case was tried to a jury, which found for Jackson and granted him $60,000 in damages for counterclaims. The judge then made the costs and fees award on the basis of the presence in the employees' contracts of an attorneys' fees provision.
