In other news its bad news for Katherine Jackson as a jury found AEG Live not liable for her sons’ 2009 death, bringing the five-month wrongful death lawsuit trial to a close.
Katherine Jackson filed a $1 billion wrongful death lawsuit against the concert promoter for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, who as we all know gave Michael Jackson a lethal dose of Propofol. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 for his part in Michael’s death and though he’s currently incarcerated, he is set to be released later this month after serving only two years.
Katherine Jackson’s legal team insists that AEG is liable from somewhere between $900 million and $1.6 billion in economic loss, plus $290 million in personal damages for their negligence in hiring Murray and failing to supervise him.
