Jackson Seeks Cash Settlement

LOS ANGELES -- Lawyers for Michael Jackson and the boy who has accused him of sexual molestation are working to hammer out the final details in a settlement that would require the singer to pay millions of dollars.

A court hearing was scheduled for Tuesday in the 14-year-old boy's civil suit against Jackson, raising widespread speculation that a settlement would be presented for a judge's approval.

A source close to the case confirmed that attorneys were close to an agreement. If a settlement is finalized, Jackson would stress that it should not be considered an admission of guilt.
