Jackson Family Lose “AEG Live” Wrongful Death Lawsuit


October 3, 2013 by The ReadyWriter


A California jury yesterday sided with concert promoter ‘AEG Live’ in a multi-billion dollar wrongful death lawsuit brought on by Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine, 83.

The Jackson family matriarch filed the lawsuit in February 2013, seeking up to $40 billion from AEG Live.

The jury found AEG was not liable for the actions of Michael’s former personal physician Conrad Murray, who is scheduled to be released from prison this month after serving just 2 of a four-year sentence, for negligent homicide in Michael’s death.

The jury found that AEG had hired Murray as Jackson’s personal physician, but Murray was competent to practice medicine because he held a valid medical license.

Murray in addition, saw the jury’s verdict as “justice”.

 “I cried because, for once, the world was allowed to hear some of the facts at they pertain to this matter — a lot of facts that have been suppressed, much of which I was denied and my attorneys could not present during my criminal trial,” Dr. Conrad Murray said on NBC’s “Today” on Thursday.

AEG Live attorney Marvin Putnam said the jury vindicated AEG.

“The jury’s decision completely vindicates AEG Live, confirming what we have known from the start — that although Michael Jackson’s death was a terrible tragedy, it was not a tragedy of AEG Live’s making,” Putnam said.

Michael died on June 25, 2009, at age 50, of cardiac and respiratory arrest. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Nov. 2011 for failing to properly monitor Jackson after a fatal administration of the intravenous surgical anesthesia Propofol.

The Jackson family plan to appeal the jury’s decision.

    No disrespect, but I didn’t think they would get a win out of this either. I more so saw it as an “Oh opportunity/I want money” deal with them.
