Jacko's Wacko John Hancock

MAY 5--When Michael Jackson dumped lawyers Mark Geragos and Benjamin Brafman last month, he was required to formally notify Judge Rodney Melville of his counsel switch. Jacko did so in a one-paragraph letter announcing his hiring of Thomas Mesereau.

Normally, such notices are not worth mentioning, but the King of Pop's court filing is notable for the absolutely gargantuan size of his signature on the legal document. The King of Pop (whose writing hand is pictured at left) apparently thought he was signing an 8x10 glossy.
