Katherine Jackson's lawsuit against concert promoting giant AEG Live for its alleged role in Michael Jackson's death has come to a close after nearly six months. On Wednesday afternoon, a California jury ruled in AEG's favor, meaning the corporate giant will not have to pay millions of dollars to the Jackson family as compensation for the King of Pop's death.
Although the jury decided that Dr. Murray was hired by AEG Live—a claim the concert promoter originally disputed—the court ultimately decided that Murray was not "incompetent for the work he was hired" to do. In other words, even though the now-imprisoned doctor administered a fatal dose of the sedative propofol to Jackson, he wasn't inherently incompetent for the job.
That means AEG Live is off the hook in a lawsuit that alleged the corporate entity pressured Murray to deem Jackson fit for concert rehearsals, despite what Katherine Jackson said were obvious signs of his ailing health.
What do you think? Did AEG Live get off too easy, or is Michael Jackson's death not the concert promoter's fault?
