AEG Live Found Not Liable in Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Case
A jury of six men and six women today (Oct. 2) found that concert promoter AEG Live is not liable in the wrongful death case regarding pop superstar Michael Jackson.
The decision came after five months of testimony and three days of deliberations, when the jury was asked to decide if AEG was at all culpable for Jackson’s death from an overdose of the hospital anesthetic Propofol in 2009.
According to the L.A. Times, while the jury came to the conclusion that AEG Live did hire Dr. Conrad Murray, who administered what would be the lethal dose of Propofol to Jackson, they also decided that Murray was not unfit to fulfill the role as Jackson’s doctor, which freed the concert promoter from any liability in the singer’s tragic passing.
