Jury rejects claim that Michael Jackson promoter negligent
Question of the Day
LOS ANGELES — A jury has rejected a claim that the promoter of Michael Jackson’s comeback concerts was negligent in hiring the doctor who killed the superstar with a drug overdose.
The verdict was read Wednesday, roughly five months after opening statements in the case filed by Jackson’s mother.
Katherine Jackson sought to hold AEG Live LLC responsible for her son’s death, arguing that it hired Dr. Conrad Murray to be the singer’s physician without considering whether he was fit for the job.
AEG Live denied any wrongdoing and said it was Jackson who hired Murray.
Murray was convicted in 2011 of involuntary manslaughter after giving Jackson the overdose as he prepared for a series of comeback shows.
The Jackson family matriarch was seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages for herself and her son’s three children.
