Alon Steinberg Dr Conrad Murray Trial Michael Jackson Death

It is not looking good for Dr. Conrad Murray. Not good at all!

Dr. Alon Steinberg, one of the California Medical Board's leading cardiologists, took the stand Wednesday in the Conrad Murray Trial.

After examining the transcripts of Murray's police interrogation, he came to the conclusion that Murray's care for Michael Jackson was an "extreme deviation" for the norm resulting in "gross negligence."

According to Steinberg

Not So Blind Item

Which "A-list celebrity of substantial fame internationally" is currently facing a $20 million lawsuit from an unnamed plaintiff who "entered into a nefarious plot designed to lure Plaintiff into his luxurious hotel room to serve his prurient desires" and then ultimately ended up contracting herpes?!

According to the legal documents filed by attorney Keith Davison, the mysterious celebrity told the plaintiff he had "no venereal diseases," and then the two watched porn and engaged in "mutual oral copulation, mutual self-gratification, rubbing and massaging each other, play-wrestling, licking and (unprotected) intercourse." Apparently, all of this took place while being videotaped, too!

The suit claims that the celebrity knew all along that he had herpes, and the plaintiff - who is never identified as male or female - is suing for sexual battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and fraud (concealment and misrepresentation).

Well, shiz. Any guesses?!

Toddler Shoots Mother In The Back With Father's Gun!

Filed under: Legal MattersSad Sad

Ugh! This is so heartbreaking and exactly why guns need to be LOCKED UP!

A two-year-old toddler shot and killed his mother after getting a hold of his father's gun in South Florida.

The father frantically called 911 after he tried to take the gun away from his son, resulting in an accidental discharge, which fatally wounded the mother.

The father was not married to the mother and did not live with her at the time of the shooting, which further calls into question WHY there was a gun left carelessly lying around the house in the first place!

Unfortunately with the mother gone, authorities may never know exactly what happened because there are no other witnesses. The police will talk to the toddler, but "due to the age" they're "not expecting to get much."

The father could be facing obvious charges of negligence for leaving a loaded weapon lying around, if not worse.

Police spokeswoman said in a statement:

"This should serve as a reminder to all parents out there to not leave firearms accessible to children. Even if you believe the firearm is not loaded, it's just not smart. It's not safe."

Check out the sad, sad news story above to hear the fathers frantic 911 call after the shooting and PLEASE take all necessary precautions to prevent this from ever happening again!

Do U think this is a case of negligence or could the father have a more sinister responsibility in this poor woman's death?

Sharon Osbourne And Rock Of Love Gal Reach Settlement

sharon osbourne and megan hauserman settle

Way back in March 2009, Rock of Love Charm School contestant Megan Hauserman planned on filing a lawsuit against Sharon Osbourne for battery, negligence, and infliction of emotional distress.

Last week, jury selection had finally begun for the trial, and it looked like neither party was willing to settle.

NOW, it looks like the two were in fact able to reach a settlement on Sunday, but both parties have refused to discuss.

We're glad to hear these two were able to finally work everything out!

Sharon Osbourne Vs. Rock Of Love Gal: Ot's Going To Court!

sharon osbourne vs megan hauserman

Way back in March 2009, we learned that Rock of Love Charm School contestant Megan Hauserman was planning on filing a lawsuit against Sharon Osbourne for battery, negligence, and infliction of emotional distress.

Now, jury selection has begun for the trial, and Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Abraham A. Khan has tried to convince both parties to settle, but to no avail.

Hauserman's lawyer Roderick L. Lindblom says he plans to show the jury video footage from Charm School as evidence.

Here's what he had to say about it:

"You watch this tape, it's pretty horrific. I want to put on evidence and ask a jury to award money."

At this point, it looks like Team Hauserman will be dropping the infliction of emotional distress claim, but they still have every intention of pushing forward with the battery and negligence claims.

Hauserman is claiming that Sharon "hit her, pulled her hair and scratched her," following their insult fest. Osbourne is countersuing because she claims Megan "assumed the risk of injury" by taking part in the show, and that she "breached her part of the agreement by suing."

In her countersuit, Osbourne says that she believes Megan Hauserman started the incident in order to get publicity.

We agree.

…Team Osbourne or Team Hauserman?
