Judge Postpones Jackson Trial: Juror confusion prompted a judge to halt a trial in which a production company accused Michael Jackson of backing out of a commitment to sing on the "Jackson Family Honors," a television flop. The move came after the federal jury awarded $2.6 million in damages to Smith-Hemion Productions, finding the company had been defrauded.

The judge decided to postpone the trial to Thursday and told lawyers to prepare motions to request a mistrial.
