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

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.
