Jury rules Michael Jackson’s promoter not liable in singer’s death.

The CBS Evening News reported that a Los Angeles jury in the wrongful death lawsuit brought by Michael Jackson’s family against his concert promoter, on Wednesday ruled “in favor of the promoter, A.E.G. Live, saying it was not negligent when it hired Dr. Conrad Murray to treat Jackson who died before he could begin a concert series.”

        NBC Nightly News reported that Jackson’s mother “and his three children filed the suit arguing that AEG Live had negligently hired” Murray, who “was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson that powerful dose of propofol that killed him in June of 2009.”

        ABC World News reported, “This trial dragged out more than five months, more than 50 witnesses heard from and, in the end, it took the jury less than 14 hours to decide. And they decided, essentially, in favor of AEG, ruling that while AEG did hire Michael Jackson’s doctor, the company is not culpable for Jackson’s death.”
