Two Executives Dropped from Michael Jackson Neglegence Lawsuit

Posted Monday September 9, 2013 10:12 PM GMT

Two executives for concert promoter AEG Live have been dismissed from the negligence suit filed by the mother of Michael Jackson.

A Los Angeles judge ruled on Monday (September 9) that the plaintiff did not show enough evidence that the two could be held responsible for M.J.’s death in 2009.

AEG Live, however, may still be held liable in the case, as jurors must decide if the company hired Dr. Conrad Murray, who administered the lethal dose of anesthetic to the legendary pop star.

Murray was found guilty in criminal court of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 and is serving a four year prison sentence.
