Michael Jackson Family’s Negligence Lawsuit Against AEG: In Jury Deliberations

Posted Friday September 27, 2013 12:28 PM GMT

It has been four years since the tragic death of Michael Jackson, and the legal battles surrounding his demise are still raging on.

The late King of Pop’s mother Katherine Jackson is suing concert promoter AEG Live LLC for criminal negligence, claiming they put undue pressure on her son to perform and helped him secure the services of Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician who provided the treatment that killed him.

And now the case is in the hands of a 12-member jury, as they just began deliberations today, with a verdict expected next week.

Jackson Family attorney Brian Panish told the jury, "They're a money-making machine. All they care about is how much money is this freak going to make for them.

"It's not right, ladies and gentlemen. It would not be right to allow [AEG honchos] Gongaware and Phillips to skate down the street and click their champagne glasses at AEG Live."

However, AEG’s lawyer fired back, "AEG would have never agreed to finance this tour if they knew Mr. Jackson was playing Russian roulette in his bedroom every night.”
