The Michael Jackson case judge has tentatively ruled 39 pieces of evidence seized at the singer's Neverland Ranch can be used at trial. But other items may be thrown out.
None of the items appears to be from the search of private investigator Bradley Miller's office. The judge heard arguments on those early last week.
All items were identified only by numbers. But the evidence tentatively admitted apparently includes computer hard drives, a cassette recorder and audiotape that a witness said contained a child's voice found in a safe in Jackson's bathroom.
The judge says he's "concerned" about 12 items taken during the search that may be covered by attorney-client privilege. But he says none of his rulings is final and he'll allow arguments about some items at the next hearings in mid-September.
