Verdict Reached in Michael Jackson Death Trial
Court officials have announced that the jury comprised of six men and six women in the Michael Jackson wrongful death case is about to deliver the much anticipated verdict.
It’s scheduled to be read at 3:30 PM PT. TMZ will be live streaming the announcement on their website.
Katherine Jackson and Michael’s three children are suing AEG, claiming the company negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray. They’re also saying that he pushed Jackson way beyond his personal limits for his “This Is It” tour.
Jackson’s mother sued concert promoter AEG Live LLC over the hiring of Murray. In 2009 Murray was the one who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson an overdose of the anesthetic propofol.
Katherine Jackson claimed AEG Live should have done a thorough background check on Murray.
The company denied hiring Murray and said he had been picked by the singer as the doctor for his upcoming shows.
