LA city attorney seeks documents, conducts interviews in Jackson probe
LOS ANGELES - A spokesman says the Los Angeles city attorney has been requesting documents and conducting interviews as part of an investigation into the city's role in Michael Jackson's lavish memorial.
Spokesman John Franklin said Wednesday there is no timetable to conclude the probe examining civil and criminal issues.
City Attorney Carmen Trutanich created a whirl of questions after announcing last week that investigators turned up possible criminal activity while looking into whether city hall could recoup an estimated US$1.4 million it spent on police and other services dedicated to the Jackson tribute.
