Kenneth Ortega 1st witness.
District Attorney David Walgren, Diazepam Direct examination of Kenny Ortega:
…DW: Some days were Michael Jackson performing, dancing?
KO: On some days, yes. Michael was involved in every decision creatively on the show. He was the last word creatively on everything….
Meeting at Michael Jackson’s home on June 20, 2009
…DW: What happened at this meeting?
KO: (It) quickly became clear that the meeting was about me. That the Dr. was upset that I had sent Michael home and didn’t allow him to rehearse the night before. And because I had voiced my concerns about Michael’s health that evening. Dr. Murry told me that this was not my responsibility and to not act like a doctor or a psychologist and to leave Michael’s health to him….
June 24, 2009 rehearsal (Michael Jackson’ s last rehearsal:
…KO: He was bold, active, and participating in the entire production. Had a conversation with Michael. We had two wonderful days of rehearsals. (He was?) feeling good, confident. (One) could feel it everywhere in the entire room. (I) Asked Michael if he was happy. He said he was very happy. Said he felt very good there in the room and appreciated (everything and) to tell the crew and everyone that he really appreciated ( everything).
(For the following day, the 25th) He was very excited since he was going to rehearse an illusion.
Objection to narrative. Sustained.
He was excited about the illusion trick they were going to rehearse the next day. That concluded the rehearsal. Michael said goodnight and they finished shortly thereafter.
June 25, 2009 the Day Micael Jackson died:
6/25/2009: At some point he learned that something happened. He received a telephone call while he was rehearsing. Earlier, he had spoken to Randy Phillips and was on his way to rehearsal. I asked him to, “Please let Michael know how excited I am and how much I look forward to rehearsals.”
(Randy Phillips said?) I thought you were calling for a different reason.
For the rest of this by Kenneth Ortega’s testimony as well as Michael Amir Williams who at one point describes Michael Jackson’s children at UCLA.
