Michael Jackson Death Trail Verdict — AEG Live Found Not Liable

Wed, October 2, 2013 7:05pm EDT by 2 Comments

A jury found concert promoter AEG Live not liable in Michael Jackson’s death on Oct. 2, after determining that the company did hire Dr. Conrad Murray — who was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in Michael’s June 25, 2009 death — but he was not unfit.

AEG will not have to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to Michael Jackson‘s mother, Katherine Jackson, and his three children, after they sued the company in 2010 for negligence in hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, who gave the legendary singer a fatal dose of the surgical anesthetic propofol days before his comeback tour in London. Read on for more details.

Michael Jackson AEG Trial Verdict — Is Concert Promoter Liable For MJ’s Death?

Dr. Murray will be released in October after serving two years in jail. After more than five months of testimony and deliberation, however, a jury decided that AEG bares no blame for hiring Dr. Murray, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Michael’s mother, Katherine, showed up at the courthouse around 3 p.m. to hear the verdict, which she was probably not pleased with, considering she and Michael’s children were set to receive up to $1 billion in damages if the jury went the other way.

Paris Jackson Attempts Suicide Amid Michael Jackson’s Trial

The trial has been difficult for everyone in Michael’s family, especially his daughter, Paris, 15, who was rushed to a hospital on June 5 after an alleged suicide attempt.  Paris has obviously been experiencing some real trauma — surely far too much for a teenager to handle — ever since her father’s wrongful death suit opened up again in May.

The trial has brought up plenty of hurtful claims, including one alleging that only one of Michael’s children are biologically his. And it has also thrown Paris into an unwanted spotlight. She’s had to testify on behalf of her deceased father, stating that AEG should be held accountable for his death.

“Paris will have to sit for another day of questioning but she is okay with that – she is an extremely intelligent, compassionate and thoughtful young lady,” a source told Radar Online after her first day of deposition. Obviously Paris was putting on a strong face and it was affecting her more than she let on.

Even though it didn’t work out in their favor, we hope Paris and the rest of the Jackson family will find some sense of closure now that the trial is over.

At least the jurors saw through the smoke-screen-of-lies perpetrated by the Jackson-family-members seeking Michaels future earnings. MJ was a drug addict and his life-expectancy was dramatically reduced anyways. The Plaintiff’s in this ridiculous lawsuit against AEG should all be charged with crimes and all be incarcerated for no less than 1,000-years; LWOP, if you ask me. I truly hope AEG gets a win-fall from their upcoming lawsuits against the Jackson family, AEG should get at least 2,000-billion-dollars from each of the Jackson family-members still alive.
