Michael Jackson's Family Loses in Death Trial Against AEG

Michael Jackson's Family Loses in Death Trial Against AEG

A jury in Los Angeles has decided that AEG Live is not liable in the wrongful death case filed by Michael Jackson‘s family.

The trial focused on whether AEG was negligent by hiring doctor Conrad Murray, who the family had deemed unfit and incompetent to treat Michael. The family argued that the entertainment company had turned a blind eye to the singer’s physical condition and were pressing him to do the This Is It tour.

AEG’s legal team argued that it was Michael who chosen Conrad as his doctor and that his use of propofol, the drug that caused his death in 2009, had started many years before their relationship began.

If Michael‘s family had won the case, damages could have reached upwards of $1 billion.

    This should never have gone to court. Michael was an adult and a drug abuser. Now I guess the family will have to pinch pennies or figure out a way to get the executors to give them more money out of he kids’ trust fund.

    His family should just let this go. The only people responsible is Michael Jackson and the doctors who didn’t say NO to him. I guess the Jackson boys will just have to keep working at their menial jobs until they get their Social Security check like the rest of us.

    They already have millions of dollars it’s not like there flat broke. In fact there earning more money now then when he was alive. There set for life but it was the greed of the jackson family is what brought the lawsuit to court.

    This was a waste of court time. Michael Jackson was an addict who has been abusing Propofol for years even when he was with Debbie Rowe. He is responsible for his ultimate demise. Dr Conrad Murray may have been the one that gave him the shot that would eventually kill him but he was just the stooge that was hired to do what Michael wanted.

    @U Can’t Handle The Truth:

    True, but…..Dr Conrad chose to engage in this unethical and dangerous drug administration…furthermore I believe had this quack Dr acted sooner the day of his death he could have been saved…Instead Conrad worried about his reputation and feared he’d go down…
    The whole thing is beyond tragic.
    More than the money I think the Jackson’s just want to put blame on anyone other than Michael. Denial in top form.

  • U Can’t Handle The Truth

    Conrad Murray let the money and lifestyle of Michael Jackson blind him from the hippocratic oath he took. He was basically bought off like what a mobster would do. When you wave a lot of money in front of a person they would do a lot of thing for it, even though its wrong. Michael still would have died if Conrad wasn’t was there. He would have still gotten that shot that killed him by one of his people on the assistance of Michael Jackson himself and the fact they would do anything to please the man. A addict can’t change until he realize that they’re an addict and wants to change which Michael didn’t and let his own addiction cause his demise
