Michael Jackson's defense team has filed a motion calling the investigation against him "breathtaking" and an attempt to "take down a major celebrity."
The accusations were contained in a motion requesting that Jackson's child molestation trial be delayed until early next year.
The motion was filed July 13th and kept sealed until Monday, the day before a hearing on it and other matters was to begin.
No reason was given for the sealing, and when the document was released sections referring to unindicted co-conspirators and other specifics of the case were blacked out.
Prosecutors in a reply said they would not oppose a "reasonable" delay but that next year was too long.
