Jurors resume deliberations on Michael Jackson’s wrongful death trial

Posted under Personal Injury

The Los Angeles jury will resume deliberations on Michael Jackson’s wrongful death trial against AEG Live on Tuesday, October 1.

The panel began deliberations on September 26 and 27. Nine out of 12 votes are needed to reach a verdict on a civil trial; a unanimous decision is needed on criminal trials. There’s no final verdict yet.

Jackson’s mother and his three children filed a $290 million lawsuit against concert promoter AEG Live for personal and unspecified damages caused by Dr. Conrad Murray’s – Jackson’s personal physician – alleged failure to supervise and his administration of  fatal doses of sedatives and anesthesia to the singer. Jackson died in 2009 at the age of 50.

Murray is currently serving a four-year sentence for involuntary manslaughter. AEG Live said that it was Jackson who demanded to hire Murray and did not inform his financial backers of his medical treatments.
