Lawsuit brought by Michael Jackson’s family against his final concert promoter fails

 

Michael Jackson’s death in 2009 was as riddled with tragedy as his life but that his family brought a claim of £1.1 billion against the promoter of his final tour was just off the wall.

 

A court has concluded that Michael Jackson's promoters for This Is It were not responsible for Dr Conrad Murray's wrongdoing

Today, a jury concluded that the firm of promoters AEG were responsible for hiring Dr Conrad Murray in the run up to the singer’s planned comeback This Is It concert tour but that the company was not to blame for his wrongdoing.

 

In deciding such, the court rightly dismissed the Jackson family’s claim and of the decision, defence attorney Marvin Putnam commented:

 

“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 … not a tragedy of AEG Live’s making”.

 

A spokesman for the Jackson family responded:

 

“As of right now, they don’t want to speak about it”.

 

Mr Jackson’s drug taking was his own choice and as with all rights, one has responsibilities. His legacy will always be his music but given the problems that his daughter has suffered in the years since his death, the true tragedy is the toxic turmoil that he’ll also be remembered for.

    1. I agree with Matthew, with rights comes responsibility and accountability, the celebrity culture has not even attempted to learn from Elvis Presley’s mistakes. I have no sympathy or empathy for them. The lessons of the past are deliberately ignored.
