Michael Jackson's lawyers say the prosecution's witnesses didn't deliver what was promised.
As they asked a judge today to acquit Jackson and bring an end to his trial, defense lawyers claimed that a lot of the prosecution witnesses had testified in just the opposite way from what prosecutors had hoped.
