EXCLUSIVE COURT DOCUMENTS: Kenny Ortega Demands To Be Removed From Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Kenny Ortega is continuing his battle to be dropped as a defendant in Katherine Jackson‘s lawsuit against AEG, and RadarOnline.com has his detailed legal filing.


Ortega, the famed choreographer and director who was helming Michael Jackson‘s planned This Is It concert series, was named by Katherine Jackson as one of the people she believes is responsible for her son’s death.

Nothing could be further from the truth, Ortega says and on January 26, he filed a Memorandum of Points and Authorities stating he was “wrongfully and mistakenly named as a defendant in this case.”

Ortega, the document states “has been extremely hurt by this mistaken and misguided Complaint publicly naming him as a defendant allegedly responsible for his friend’s death.”

He’s asking the court to remove him as a defendant in Katherine’s ongoing lawsuit against the giant entertainment and sports presentation company, AEG.
