Travolta Case Heads to Florida?

Travolta lawyer Michael Ossi is attempting to shift the extortion trial to Jacksonville, Florida from the Bahamas on the basis that some of the alleged extortion phone calls were made to his office there. Bahamian politician Pleasant Bridgewater and ambulance driver Tarino Lightbourne are accused of attempting to extort $25 million from John Travolta after his 16-year-old son Jett's death last January. The two purportedly threatened to sell stories to the media suggesting that Travolta was responsible for his son's death because he initially wanted to fly Jett to Florida for treatment. On Thursday, the initial suit ended in a mistrial over concerns of possible jury misconduct.
