Jackson Family Lose $40B AEG Live Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Jackson Family Lose AEG Lawsuit

A California jury yesterday sided with concert promoter AEG Live in a multi-billion dollar wrongful death lawsuit brought by Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine, 83.

The Jackson family matriarch filed the lawsuit in February 2013, seeking up to $40 billion from AEG Live.

The jury found AEG was not liable for the actions of Michael’s former personal physician Conrad Murray, who is scheduled to be released from prison this month after serving 2 years of a four-year sentence for negligent homicide in Michael’s death.

The jury found that AEG had hired Murray as Jackson’s personal physician, but that Murray was competent to practice medicine because he held a valid medical license.

Murray saw the jury’s verdict as “justice”.

“I cried because, for once, the world was allowed to hear some of the facts at they pertain to this matter — a lot of facts that have been suppressed, much of which I was denied and my attorneys could not present during my criminal trial,” Dr. Conrad Murray said on NBC’s “Today” on Thursday.

AEG Live attorney Marvin Putnam said the jury vindicated AEG.

“The jury’s decision completely vindicates AEG Live, confirming what we have known from the start — that although Michael Jackson’s death was a terrible tragedy, it was not a tragedy of AEG Live’s making,” Putnam said.

Michael died on June 25, 2009, at age 50, of cardiac and respiratory arrest. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Nov. 2011 for failing to properly monitor Jackson after a fatal administration of the intravenous surgical anesthesia Propofol.

The Jackson family plans to appeal the jury’s decision.

      No disrespect, but I didn’t think they would get a win out of this either. I more so saw it as an “Oh opportunity/I want money” deal with them. :shrug:

      I wonder had it been 40 million vs. 40 billion, if the verdict would have been diff.
      They knew Michael was not physically fit to do all those shows, that’s why they hired Conrad.

      I have a cousin, who is an MJ STAN. I mean she might cut someone over MJ if you talk down about him. In her eyes, MJ can literally do NO wrong.

      She was on FB just fussing and fuming about how wrong AEG was and this and that. :no: she gave me a good laugh.

      Boot I canceled my Direct TV 6 September. I was told that because I was canceling before my contract was up I’d have to pay $125 and they explained why. I had no problem. I called on Monday to pay and the bish I spoke to was like “yeah, the total comes to $261.64.” I said excuse me? No it’s not. My fee was $125 b/c of me moving and canceling during a contract, how’d it double?” She said Oh that’s your cancelation fee. That’s what it is. Yeah? Yeah… But you is eligible for a free upgrade if you want to restart your services, we can get you on tomorrow.”

      I told that ghetto bird I ain’t have my dag on box and I sent it back and that I canceled it due to me moving. I asked for her fuggin sup b/c I refused to be “coerced” by someone who wasn’t qualified to listen to the customer.

      Her sup fixed it and apologized. :no: :lol:

      Carrington says:

      As a member of the family, and as a casual observer, I can say with a high degree of certainty that if YOUR son’s doctor even ALMOST killed him, you would be at an attorney’s office. Katie Mae’s son DIED – she has every right to sue – as would I. It’s definitely not about money for Katie Mae at 86. She is very well taken care of and always has been. If Michael didn’t do anything else, he was certain that Katherine Jackson didn’t want for a thing. Even if he couldn’t afford it, that house on Hayvenhurst drive operated as if Michael still lived there with maids, gardeners, cooks, and security. My grandmother told me that she was there and a damn grocery truck pulled up and unloaded enough groceries to feed the salvation army. How would the money benefit her at this stage in her life?

      Secondly, Conrad Murder was a physician giving a patient anesthesia to SLEEP. Come on, bro. Anybody knows that you don’t get SLEEP under anesthesia. You’re unconscious. There’s a difference. So, even if Mike ASKED for those drugs, as a PHYSICIAN you have a responsibility NOT to feed it to him because you took that oath. A physician’s assistant wouldn’t pass out drugs to a patient just becuase he asked because she, or he, would lose their license – why would a doctor?

      Conrad Murray was a paid drug dealer who didn’t even know that you can’t properly perform CPR with a patient laying on a bed – Dr. Dre knows that $hit!

      The point is not that Michael was on drugs; that part is clear. The POINT is that a doctor, with a license was SUPPLYING him with drugs.

      That’s my point. But that point is lost no matter how many times you say it people won’t see it because it just won’t make sense.

      There are people who are ADDICTS & if they go to a physician who KNOWS this & they keep supplying with the drug of their choice – how is he not responsible if they leave his office with some codeine & over dose?

      As a physician, you have a RESPONSIBILITY to say no.

      And He didn’t. And he’s in jail. No one here said he wasn’t responsible. We’re saying Michael was too b/c of his addiction. and EYE said Conrad most likely feared of being fired, thus, jail time.

      As a congressman/president/rep/senate/mayor/blah blah- it is your RESPONSIBILITY to make the proper decisions for the benefit of the people. Look at what we’re at now. :popcorn:

      As a parent- it is the your RESPONSIBILITY to care for your child. Look at these dead beats smoking black and sipping beer while pregnant and leaving kids in the car while they go party and get TURNT UP (greens). :popcorn:

      As a police officer- it is your RESPONSIBILITY to protect and serve. Look at these people getting zapped and shot to death, beat while pregnant b/c of a power trip. :popcorn:

      Do I need to go on? I think I shoooould.

      You know what I think. To be honest with you I think that this was by no surprise because it seems that things like this just actually happen when it comes down to successful people like the Jackson’s. Like it is really sad to see things like this happen to them. RIP MICHAEL

      So because Conrad Murray was a doctor, MJ is not just a little responsible for his substance abuse problem Conrad Murray didnt force MJ to take drugs just like crack dealers don’t force crackheads tosmoke crack. AEG isnt responsible for MJ’s bad decisions or Murrays giving him a freaking medical grade anesthetic to go to sleep. The Jacksons saw a payday imo and I’m glad the jury saw through it..
