http://www.scribd.com/doc/115405475/AEG ... ent-Motion

Summary of the AEG Live, Gongaware and Phillips summary judgment motion (document posted above) is as follows:
AEG is asking dismissal based on "matter of law" as there's no triable issues.

First action : Breach of contract.

In this claim Katherine Jackson claimed AEG had a legal duty and failed to perform their legal duty and acted negligently. AEG denies this claim saying there was no legal duty. They argue that they had no duty to protect Michael from Murray.

A. Katherine claimed there was a "special relationship" between Michael and AEG because Michael was dependent to AEG. AEG argues that the legal definition of special relationship is pretty specific and it involves situations such as the relationship between foster children and foster parents and prisoners and guards and so on. They argue that Michael was a 50 year old intelligent and successful entertainer and he wasn't a child or a prisoner.

A.1. AEG further argues that financial dependence - even if true - doesn't create a special relationship. If it did then every person would be dependent to their employee or their bank. AEG simply argues that every one even though they might have debt have the option to change jobs, sell their assets and declare bankruptcy.

AEG argues that law doesn't recognize special relationship in regards to medical care - unless there's full control. For example law recognizes control over a prisoner's medical care as the prisoner is under the total control of the guards. AEG claims as Michael was not in custody of AEG no such control over his medical care exists.

AEG argues that even though the court to assume that there was some special relationship between AEG and Michael, AEG's only responsibility would be to provide access to medical care. The quality of the medical care would still be responsibility of the doctor Murray and not AEG. AEG argues that the according to law the duty to provide quality medical care is through the doctor to the patient.

A.2. AEG argues that there are no evidence / facts to show that there was a special relationship.

AEG states they did not control Michael's finances. Michael signed the tour deal voluntarily after months of negotiations and changes to the contract. AEG says that despite the claims Michael did not put his personal assets as collateral (Ivy's note: This is something I've been saying for some time now. Michael only put MJJ Co's assets as collateral. The catalogs were personal assets that were hold in separate bankruptcy remote trusts. Catalogs weren't a collateral)

AEG compares Michael deciding to go on tour rather than to sell his assets to any American that works to pay their debts.

AEG says they did not control Michael's medical care. AEG says they did not isolate or stopped Michael from seeing any doctor (Note: Arnie Klein's creditors claims showing that Michael visited him up to 3 days before his death is added as an exhibit) AEG also denies the claim that they forced Michael to see Murray and argue that Murray is Michael's long term physician - even before any deal with AEG.

AEG also states that Murray started to perform services in April 2009 - a month before any AEG executive ever heard of him.

B. Negligent undertaking

B. 1.2. AEG argues that they did not undertake Michael's medical care and this did not increase the chances of any more harm. AEG argues that Murray have been treating Michael for a long time and the risk was the same. AEG's involvement - even if it happened- did not increase the risk.

B.3. AEG argues that they had no obligation to provide Murray any equipment and assistant in Los Angeles because i) Murray wanted those for London and not Los Angeles, ii) the contract was not signed so it was not enforceable and iii)Murray was the one to choose the equipment and assistant and therefore AEG could have not provide it on their own (Murray had to request those and he didn't.)

4. AEG is denying any responsibility for risk as it was Murray who knew that what equipment and assistant needed and still decided to provide services. They place the risk on Murray's conduct.

C. Lack of foreseeability

AEG argues that they could not foresee harm to Michael. Murray was a licensed doctor in multiple states and did not have any prior record of discipline. AEG argues they could not foresee that Murray would deviate this much from the standard of care to the point of being foung guilty of involuntary manslaughter and given maximum sentence.

D. Hiring, training and supervising Murray

AEG denies these claims saying they did not hire Murray, they had no reason to believe Murray was unfit and they did not know Michael was given Propofol.

Again AEG mentions Murray was Michael's longtime physician, he was at LA house performing services a month before AEG even heard about him. They say they started negotiations with Murray in insistence of Michael when they did not want to hire him. They mention the drafting process and mention they did not pay Murray. AEG also points out that the contract had a clause saying that the agreement will not be in effect until Michael signs it.

AEG states that there was no oral contract and everyone was aware that any agreement required to be written and signed. They say their emails and communications show an understanding of this and even Murray wanted to show the agreement to his lawyers and wanted several changes. AEG states their refusal to pay "good faith" payment to Murray also demonstrates that they only considered a written and fully executed agreement as a binding one. AEG argues that all of these show that the agreement was supposed to be in writing and there is no oral contract.

So overall they argue that they never hired Murray and therefore never trained or supervised him either.

AEG continues to argue that even if court thinks they hired Murray, AEG could not have seen the risk Murray posed as Murray was seen as a competent doctor licensed in multiple states with no disciplinary actions.

AEG also argues that Murray was going to be hired as an "independent contractor" and law says you aren't responsible for the actions of an independent contractor.

---------------------------------------------

Some tidbits from the additional documents and not redacted parts

Michael's kids confirm that they either first met Murray in Bahrain or in Las Vegas. They state they started to see Murray more often in LA. (Ivy's note: This seems to AEG's evidence that Michael's relationship with Murray dated long before they came into picture)

Katherine in her written answers admit that Michael was given Propofol by other doctors before Murray.

AEG Live execs - Phillips and Gongaware - state they did not know Michael was being given Propofol by Murray, they state they didn't even know what Propofol is.

Phillips and Gongaware say that their meetings with Murray was limited to 2-3 meetings.

Two excerpts from depositions of Kai Chase and Rosalyn Muhammed state that they did not see Michael under influence. (Ivy's note: Which can be used in trial as these people didn't recognize the effects of the drugs , it'll be impossible for us to recognize it.)

The instance Michael felt cold is mentioned in nanny Rose's deposition as well as Paris's written answers to questions.

Paris also states that she discussed Michael with Latoya and that Latoya promised to get to the bottom of who killed Michael.

AEG's responses include that Michael was represented by Tohme Tohme, Dennis Hawk and Peter Lopez during the negotiations and signing of the TII concert deal.

Katherine argues that given that Gongaware's prior history with Michael (he was involved in other tours) he should have known that Michael was taking Propofol.

------------------------

Oral arguments are set for February 13, 2013. After the oral arguments court would take some to come to a decision.

Conrad Murray ordered to meet with Katherine Jackson's lawyers
Los Angeles (CNN) -- A judge has ordered Dr. Conrad Murray to meet with Katherine Jackson's lawyers next month for a deposition in her wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoter AEG Live.
The lawsuit, which is set for trial in April, accuses AEG Live of causing the death of Katherine Jackson's son, Michael Jackson, by pressuring him to prepare for his 2009 comeback concerts while he was in fragile health.
The suit, filed on behalf of Michael Jackson's mother and three children, says that AEG Live executives hired and supervised Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death.
Murray lawyer Valerie Wass, who unsuccessfully objected to the deposition, said the decision disappointed her. Wass said she would advise Murray to invoke his Fifth Amendment right to not answer questions.
"But Dr. Murray has a mind of his own," Wass said. "If he decided to answer a question, those parties don't know what he's going to say."
The videotaped deposition is set to take place on March 18 in the Los Angeles County jail where Murray has been serving his sentence since November 2011.
Murray, who was the pop superstar's personal physician, has never been questioned under oath about Jackson's death. He did not testify at his trial.

Judge likely to let stripped back Jacksons v AEG case to proceed

The judge overseeing Katherine Jackson’s lawsuit against AEG in relation to the death of her son Michael said she was likely to let the case proceed to court earlier this week, though with its claims and listed defendants likely to be limited a bit.

As much previously reported, the Jackson matriarch claims that AEG, promoter of the ill-fated Michael Jackson ‘This Is It’ London residency, should be held liable for the actions of Conrad Murray, the doctor convicted for causing the late king of pop’s death through negligent treatment.
Mrs Jackson argues that AEG hired and paid Murray, and is therefore liable for his negligence. The live firm, though, insists that, while it paid Murray’s bills, he was hired at Jackson’s request, and managed day to day by the singer himself, meaning the company is not responsible for the medic’s actions.

AEG’s lawyers have been trying to get the case dismissed, but LA judge Yvette Palazuelos said in a tentative ruling on Monday that she was likely to let the claim that AEG was negligent in hiring Murray proceed to court. However, some other claims are likely to be removed from the lawsuit by the judge, and the list of defendants is likely to be reduced as well, to just the AEG Live tour promotions business, taking parent company AEG Inc and its CEO Tim Leiweke out of the mix.

AEG’s legal team welcomed Palazuelos’s comments, adding that they hoped to still persuade the judge to dismiss the entire case. Though, assuming they fail in that bid, the stripped down lawsuit looks likely to reach court in April.

Всем привет!
нашла одну статью и немного не поняла смысл.По возможности,помогите с переводом пожалуйста.
Я так поняла,что Аэг будут отвечать за то,что наняли доктора-убийцу и оплачивали его тоже они,а адвокаты Мюррея пытаются сказать,что его нанял Майкл сам потому что знал его давно и он лечил его детей?

Alleged 'smoking gun' e-mail revealed in Michael Jackson death suit

Los Angeles (CNN) -- A "smoking gun" e-mail allegedly connecting a concert promoter to Michael Jackson's death was revealed this week as a judge unsealed documents in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Jackson's mother and children.
The trial next month in Los Angeles could shed new light on the pop icon's last days as Dr. Conrad Murray, who did not testify at his own involuntary manslaughter trial, and Jackson's oldest son Prince, 16, are on the witness list.
Jackson died two weeks before his "This Is It" comeback concerts, organized by AEG Live, were to have debuted in London in the summer of 2009. E-mails suggested that the promoter was worried about Jackson's missed rehearsals and they sought Murray's help in getting him ready.
Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson and their grandmother, Katherine Jackson, contend that AEG Live's pressure on Murray to have Michael Jackson ready for daily rehearsals despite his fragile health led to his death from an overdose of surgical anesthetic.
The judge ruled Wednesday that Jackson lawyers have shown enough evidence that AEG Live hired and supervised Murray to warrant a jury trial. She also ruled there was evidence to support the Jacksons' claim that AEG Live executives could have foreseen that Murray would use dangerous drugs in treating the pop icon.
"Now that the court has ruled that there is evidence that it was foreseeable that AEG's actions resulted in Michael Jackson's death, the Jackson family feels vindicated from the public smear campaign that AEG has waged against them," Jackson lawyer Kevin Boyle said Sunday. "The truth about what happened to Michael, which AEG has tried to keep hidden from the public since the day Michael died, is finally emerging. We look forward to the trial where the rest of the story will come to light."
A cornerstone of the Jacksons' case is an e-mail AEG Live Co-CEO Paul Gongaware wrote 11 days before Jackson's June 25, 2009, death. The e-mail to show director Kenny Ortega addressed concerns that Murray had kept Jackson from a rehearsal the day before: "We want to remind (Murray) that it is AEG, not MJ, who is paying his salary. We want to remind him what is expected of him."
Jackson lawyers, calling it a "smoking gun," argue the e-mail is evidence that AEG Live used Murray's fear of losing his $150,000-a-month job as Jackson's personal physician to pressure him to have Jackson ready for rehearsals despite his fragile health.
Ortega, who had worked closely with Jackson on previous tours, sounded a loud warning about his health after Jackson showed up for a rehearsal shivering just over a week before his death. He wrote in an e-mail to AEG Live President Randy Phillips: "It is like there are two people there. One (deep inside) trying to hold on to what he was and still can be and not wanting us to quit him, the other in this weakened and troubled state. I believe we need professional guidance in this matter."
Phillips responded with a glowing endorsement of Murray: "This doctor is extremely successful (we check everyone out) and does not need this gig so he is totally unbiased and ethical."
Jackson lawyers point to another e-mail exchange as evidence that Phillips was directly involved with pressuring Murray to have Jackson at rehearsals. The e-mail was sent by AEG Live tour accountant Timm Woolley to an insurance broker two days before Jackson died: "Randy Phillips and Dr. Murray are responsible for MJ rehearsal and attendance schedule."
Murray told investigators two days after Jackson's death that he used the surgical anesthetic propofol every night for two months to help him rest for rehearsals. It was a procedure Jackson demanded, he said. The Los Angeles County coroner ruled that Jackson had died from an overdose of propofol in combination with sedatives. Murray is serving a prison sentence for his involuntary manslaughter conviction.
AEG Live argues it has no liability in Jackson's death because Murray was not its employee. AEG lawyer Marvin Putnam did not respond Sunday to CNN calls for comment, but he did give a short statement last year: "Defendants did not hire Dr. Murray nor were they responsible for the death of Michael Jackson."
The lawsuit seeks a judgment against AEG Live equal to the money Jackson would have earned over the course of his remaining lifetime if he had not died in 2009. If AEG Live is found liable, it could cost the company several billion dollars, according to estimates of Jackson's income potential. AEG Live is a subsidiary of AEG, a global entertainment company that is now for sale with an $8 billion asking price.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos, in her ruling rejecting AEG Live's request to have the case thrown out, said she agreed that the Jackson lawyers provided evidence that AEG Live didn't do "a sufficient background check of Dr. Murray, which would have established that Murray was deeply in debt."
Jackson's previous relationship with Murray, who treated him and his children for minor illnesses in Las Vegas, did not relieve AEG Live of liability, "although the fact may be relevant in determining proportional liability and damages," she said.
While the AEG Live lawyers argued the company could not have foreseen that Murray might use dangerous drugs on Jackson in preparation for the tour, Palazuelos said there was evidence that Gongaware had "previous tour experiences" with Jackson in which "tour doctors" gave "large amounts of drugs/controlled substances to him." Gongaware testified in Murray's trial that he worked as tour manager for Jackson's "Dangerous" and "History" tours before joining AEG Live.
The judge cited "Gongaware's general knowledge of the ethical issues surrounding 'tour doctors' and the practice of administering drugs to performing artists."
"There is a triable issue of fact as to whether it was foreseeable that such a physician under strong financial pressure may compromise his Hippocratic Oath and do what was known by AEG Live's executives to be an unfortunate practice in the entertainment industry for financial gain," the judge wrote.

Conrad Murray on witness list for Michael Jackson wrongful death trial

Dr. Conrad Murray, who was jailed for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, has been named a witness in an upcoming trial of concert promoter AEG Live, which the King of Pop's mother has sued for alleged involvement.

Katherine Jackson filed the lawsuit in 2010 and claims that the company pressured her son into rehearsing for a series of comeback concerts, despite his poor health, and allegedly hired Murray, who was paid $150,000 a month to be his personal doctor for the tour. AEG Live has denied any wrongdoing and had said Jackson was the one who had chosen the man to be his physician.

A Los Angeles judge ruled on Wednesday that Jackson's lawyers had presented evidence that showed that AEG Live hired and supervised Murray and also that company executives could have foreseen that the doctor would use dangerous drugs to treat the singer, CNN reported on Monday, March 4. A jury trial was set for April. Jackson's oldest son Prince, 16, is also on the witness list.

Among the evidence is what Jackson's lawyers are calling a "smoking gun" email that AEG Live Co-CEO Paul Gongaware sent to show director Kenny Ortega less than two weeks before Jackson's death on June 25, 2009. CNN quoted him as saying: "We want to remind (Murray) that it is AEG, not MJ, who is paying his salary. We want to remind him what is expected of him."

Another email quotes AEG Live President Randy Phillips as telling Ortega and Murray is "is extremely successful (we check everyone out) and does not need this gig so he is totally unbiased and ethical."

Murray has not commented. Jackson died at age 50 on June 25, 2009 at his Los Angeles home from an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol and two other sedatives that were prescribed and administered by the doctor, who was in November 2011 sentenced to four years in prison, the maximum punishment, for involuntary manslaughter

Jackson had signed a deal with AEG Live to perform a comeback concert series in London in July 2009. His family's lawsuit suggests he was forced to maintain a grueling rehearsal schedule and was showing signs of physical stress in the months before his death. AEG Live's attorney has said it was "not foreseeable that Michael Jackson or anyone else was going to die in their own home of propofol."

Обещанный перевод

В следующем месяце в ЛА состоится суд,который может пролить свет на последние дни поп-иконы,так как доктор Мюррей,который не давал показаний на своем судебном процессе и старший сын Джексона Принц,находятся в списке свидетелей.И-мейлы позволили предположить,что промоутер беспокоился по поводу пропущенных репетиций и они обратились за помощью к Мюррею,чтобы помочь в его подготовке.

Принц,Пэрис,Бланкет и их бабушка утверждают,что давление АЕГ на Мюррея с целью подготовки Джексона к ежедневным репетициям несмотря на его слабое здоровье привели его к смерти от хирургического анестетика.В среду судья постановил ,что адвокаты Джексона предоставили достаточно доказательств того,что АЕГ наняли и контролировали Мюррея и это является основанием для суда присяжных.Также судья постановил,что существует доказательство в поддержку заявления Джексонов о том,что боссы АЕГ могли предвидеть то,что Мюррей мог использовать опасные наркотики для лечения поп иконы.

"Теперь,когда суд постановил,что есть доказательство того,что действия АЕГ предсказуемо привели к смерти Майкла Джексона,семья чувствует себя оправданной в той публичной клеветнической компании,которую АЕГ вело против них"- заявил в воскресенье адвокат Джексонов Кевин Бойл."Правда о том,что произошло с Майклом,которую АЕГ пыталось скрывать от общественности со дня его смерти,наконец всплывает.Мы с нетерпением ждем суда,где остальная часть истории выйдет на свет".

Краеугольным камнем в деле Джексона является имейл,отправленный генеральным директорм АЕГ Paul Gongaware за 11 дней до 25 июня 2009 года.И-мейл был адресован режиссеру шоу Кенни Ортега и касался того,что накануне Мюррей не пустил Джексона на репетицию."Мы хотим напомнить (Мюррею),что это АЕГ,а не МЖ платит ему зарплату.Мы хотим напомнить ему о том,что мы ожидаем от него".

Адвокаты Джексона утверждают,что они использовали боязнь доктора потерять зарплату в 150 тыс $ и поэтому оказывали на него давление.

Предупреждающим сигналом о здоровье Джексона прозвучал и-мейл отправленный Ортегой на имя Ренди Филипса после того,как певец за неделю до 25 числа появился на репетиции дрожащим."Это как будто есть 2 человека.Один (глубоко внутри),пытающийсч держаться за то,каким он был и каим еще может быть и не желающий,чтобы мы бросили его,и другой ,в ослабленном и тревожном состоянии.Я думаю,нам нужна профессиональная помощь в этом вопросе".Филипс ответил :"Этот доктор чрезвычайно успешен(мы проверяем всех) и не нуждается в этом шоу,так что он совершенно беспристрастен и нравственен".

Адвокаты Джексона указывают и на другой обмен и-мелами в качестве доказательства того,что Филипс непосредственно оказывал давление на Мюррея для того,чтобы Джексон каждый день присутствовал на репетициях.Письмо было отправлено бухгалтером АЕГ Томом Вули страховому брокеру за 2 дня до смерти :"Ренди Филипс и доктор Мюррей несут ответственность
за репетиции МЖ и график присутствия".

АЕГ утверждает,что не несет никакой отвественности за смерть Джексона,так как Мюррей не был ее сотрудником.Иск,предъявленный АЕГ,требует наказания ,равного тем деньгам,которые
Джексон заработал бы в течение своей оставшейся жизни,если бы не умер в 2009 году.Если АЕГ будет признана виновной,то это может стоить компании несколько миллиардов долларов.В настоящее время оценочная стоимость компании соствляет 8 миллиардов долларов.

Судья согласилась с доводами адвокатов Джексонов о том,что АЕГ не провели достаточной проверки доктора,которая должна была показать,что у него были серьезные долги.

В то время,как адвокаты АЕГ утверждают,что компания не могла предвидеть того,что Мюррей мог бы использовать опасные наркотики при подготовке к туру,судья заявила.что у Gongaware
был предыдущий опыт работы с Джексоном в турах,где врачи давали ему большое количество наркотиков/контролируемых веществ.В процессе над Мюрреем Gongaware свидетельствовал о том,что до прихода в АЕГ он работал с Джексоном в качестве тур-менеджера для Dangerous и History.Судья сослался на "общие знания Gongaware этических вопросов,связаных с гастрольными врачами и практикой использования наркотиков артистами".

Michael Jackson’s Oldest Son Prince Plans On Testifying At Wrongful Death Lawsuit Trial
Michael Jackson‘s oldest son, Prince, plans on testifying at the wrongful death lawsuit trial of his superstar father, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

“Prince absolutely plans on testifying,” a family insider tells Radar. “His grandmother, Katherine, filed the lawsuit against AEG, which was the concert promoter for Michael’s comeback concerts that were scheduled to take place in London. Katherine contends that AEG was responsible for her son’s death because they were responsible for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray to be his physician.
“Prince very much wants to take the stand and plans to tell jurors about specific conversations he had with his father about AEG. Prince will also testify about the fateful day his father died, as he was an eyewitness to the efforts that were made to save his life. There are no plans for either Paris or Blanket to testify though.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Katherine suffered a huge legal setback this past week when a California court dismissed all of her claims against AEG and its president, Tim Leiweke.
Additionally, all but one of her claims against the remaining defendants were dismissed and the California Court of Appeals ordered Michael’s medical records unsealed.

Those remaining defendants have filed legal documents with the Court of Appeal in California to dismiss the one claim, on the question of whether AEG Live negligently hired Murray, Jackson’s long time personal physician.
As RadarOnline.com has previously reported, Murray was convicted in 2011 for the involuntary manslaughter death of Michael after administering a fatal dose of propofol to help the pop singer sleep. Murray hadn’t formally signed his employment contract with AEG at the time of Michael’s death.

If the case proceeds to trial on April 1, “jurors will be very interested in what Prince has to say. He is a very well spoken and intelligent young man,” the source said.
“When Michael was alive, he treated his oldest son as an adult. Michael consulted Prince on business decisions. Prince is extremely mature and considerate young man.”

Conrad Murray says he won't testify in Michael Jackson wrongful death trial
Los Angeles (CNN) -- Dr. Conrad Murray, who was Michael Jackson's personal physician, is refusing to testify in the wrongful death lawsuit that the singer's mother filed against concert promoter AEG Live.
If called, he will plead the fifth so as not to incriminate himself, the doctor said in a statement sent to the Jackson family.
Murray has never been questioned under oath about Jackson's death, which occurred on his watch.
He did not testify at his trial, where he was found guilty of causing Jackson's death on June 25, 2009, by administering a deadly overdose of sedatives and the surgical anesthetic propofol in what he told police was an attempt to cure the singer's insomnia.
He is serving a four-year sentence but could be out in two.

Photos: Michael Jackson, King of Pop
On Monday, he was supposed to be deposed in the wrongful death suit.
But lawyers for Jackson's mother, Katherine, and her three children called off their jailhouse visit because Murray swore "he would not answer any questions at the deposition or the trial," Jackson lawyer Kevin Boyle told CNN.
He said the Jackson case would not suffer without his testimony.
AEG's lawyer suggests the Jacksons canceled Murray's deposition because his testimony would "destroy" their case.
"They are not interested in the truth," said the lawyer, Marvin Putnam.
Asserting his 'Fifth Amendment privilege'
The cancellation came after Murray's attorney Valerie Wass sent the Jacksons a sworn statement signed by Murray making it clear he would not answer any questions while his involuntary manslaughter conviction in Michael Jackson's death is being appealed.
"Accordingly, if I am called or ordered to testify at deposition or trial in the Katherine Jackson vs AEG wrongful death case, I will be asserting my Fifth Amendment privilege against self-incrimination and refuse to answer any questions," Murray's declaration said.
Jury selection in the civil trial is set to begin April 2 in a Los Angeles County court.
Prince Jackson, the pop star's oldest son, is expected to testify about his father's last days.
Jacksons: Focus back on AEG
The Jackson lawsuit contends that AEG Live is responsible for Jackson's death because it hired and supervised Dr. Murray, who was administering the surgical anesthetic propofol to Jackson each night for a month to induce sleep as he prepared for a series of concerts organized by AEG Live.
A jury found Dr. Murray guilty of involuntary manslaughter after hearing testimony that he violated medical standards in his treatment of Jackson.
"Dr. Murray's choice to keep quiet puts the focus back on the company, AEG, that hired Dr. Murray and agreed to pay him over $1.5 million a year, and provide Murray with a large house and drivers and other perks, to make sure that the company's biggest asset, Michael Jackson, made it to the shows on time, no matter what," Boyle, the Jacksons' lawyer said.
A judge ruled last month that Jackson lawyers could question Murray at the Los Angeles County jail, where he is serving his prison sentence.
AEG: Testimony destroys Jacksons' claim
"The Jacksons told the world that they wanted Dr. Murray's deposition, and then when the Court gave it to them, they canceled it," Putnam, the AEG lawyer, told CNN on Sunday.
"They have had all of their claims dismissed except negligent hiring, and they don't want Dr. Murray to be deposed because he will tell them what he already told the police: that he worked for Michael Jackson; that Michael Jackson, not AEG, was his employer; and that Michael Jackson personally invited him to join the 'This is It' tour long before anyone at AEG had even heard of him. The Jacksons canceled the deposition because that testimony destroys the only claim they have left. They are not interested in the truth."
Back and forth
The Jacksons' lawyer argued, in response to Putnam's comment, that AEG was not interested in having Murray take the stand in the trial.
"AEG did not even try to get Dr. Murray to talk," Boyle said. "AEG is simply not telling the truth. AEG can't run from the fact that they hired the man who is in jail for killing the greatest entertainer the world has ever known."
Wass, who unsuccessfully objected to the deposition, said she advised Murray to invoke his Fifth Amendment right to not answer questions because of his appeal. The appeal brief is expected to be filed next week.
Jacksons plan to use e-mails
Jackson died two weeks before his "This Is It" comeback concerts, organized by AEG Live, were to have debuted in London in the summer of 2009.
E-mails the Jackson's plan to use in their case suggested that the promoter was worried about Jackson's missed rehearsals and they sought Murray's help in getting him ready.
Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson and their grandmother contend that AEG Live's pressure on Murray to have Jackson ready for daily rehearsals despite his fragile health led to his death from the propofol overdose.
A cornerstone of the Jacksons' case is an e-mail AEG Live co-CEO Paul Gongaware wrote 11 days before Jackson's death.
The e-mail to show director Kenny Ortega addressed concerns that Murray had kept Jackson from a rehearsal the day before: "We want to remind (Murray) that it is AEG, not MJ, who is paying his salary. We want to remind him what is expected of him."
Jackson lawyers, calling it a "smoking gun," argue the e-mail is evidence that AEG Live used Murray's fear of losing his $150,000-a-month job as Jackson's personal physician to pressure him to have Jackson ready for rehearsals despite his fragile health.
Billions at stake
The lawsuit seeks a judgment against AEG Live equal to the money Jackson would have earned over the course of his remaining lifetime if he had not died.
If AEG Live is found liable, it could cost the company several billion dollars, according to estimates of Jackson's income potential.
AEG Live is a subsidiary of AEG, a global entertainment company that was recently for sale with an $8 billion asking price.
The company announced last week it was no longer for sale.

Кэтрин Джексон против AEG Live

#20  Сообщение Admin » 22 мар 2013, 02:36

Народ, решила открыть эту ветку, в которую будем собирать все, что будет происходить в суде.
На сегодняшний момент из того, что я успела прочесть - Принс во время допроса был очень взволнован, настолько, что даже пришлось сделать перерыв. Пэрис так же будет допрошена.
Для Бланкета Джексоны взяли справку от врача, что допрос при этих обстоятельствах может пагубно сказаться на его здоровье.
ТиДжей Джексон заявил, что с Принсом во время допроса обращались неподобающим образом и поэтому они желают, чтобы Пэрис была допрошена непосредственно в зале суда, чтобы можно было обратиться к судье, если опять что - то будет не так.
AEG допрашивают детей досконально - полный день - 7 часов icon_shocked

В качестве свидетелей заявлено много народу, в списке значаться - Лиза Мария, Принс ( певец ), Куинси Джонс, Карен Фэй ( последняя дает весьма туманные ответы на твиттере по этому поводу, и забугорье считает, что она опять трусливо сбежит, как и в случае с судом доктора. Но некоторые утверждают, что Карен очень умна и понимала, что в случае с судом Мюррея, она могла дать показания, которые навредили бы Майклу, и типа, поэтому пропала без вести и не явилась на суд, а в данном случае она придет, дабы ей есть много что сказать против AEG. )

Мнения на забугорье неоднозначные, но большинство против Кэтрин, считают, что дело проигрышное и что по отношению к детям Майкла это более, чем неправильно.

В отношении Лизы и Куинси народ считает, что оба заявят, что Майкл был наркоман со стажем и их показания будут не в пользу Кэтрин. А Принс ( который певец ), очевидно, расскажет о своем контракте с AEG на той же Арене 02 и его бьющих все рекорды 21 концерте. Что тоже будет явно не в пользу Кэтрин, так как концерты успешно состоялись.

В эту минуту Пэрис начинает давать показания. Она одета в голубую майку, джинсы и коричневые уги. ТиДжей ее сопровождает, так как является одним из ее опекунов.

Ниже пощу две статьи о Пэрис и выше перенесла в эту ветку все, что на эту тему heyy

Paris Jackson Deposed In Katherine Jackson’s Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against AEG
Michael Jackson‘s daughter, Paris, is being deposed Thursday afternoon in Los Angeles in connection with a wrongful death lawsuit her grandmother, Katherine Jackson, filed against concert promoter, AEG, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Katherine contends that AEG was responsible for her son’s death because they were responsible for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray to be his physician.

“The deposition will take place in a private interview room that is big enough to accomodate lawyers for Katherine, and AEG, beginning at 1:30,” a source tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.

“The deposition could go all day. Even though Paris isn’t expected to testify at the trial, AEG wanted to take her deposition because she is a co-Plaintiff in the case.

Prince Jackson, Michael’s oldest child, “was also deposed last week, and it didn’t go well for him. In fact the proceedings grew so intense for Prince, that a break was called, and it had to resume the next day,” the insider tells us.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Prince plans on testifying at the trial, which is scheduled to begin in April.

Katherine suffered a huge legal setback recently when a California court dismissed all but one of her claims against AEG and its president, Tim Leiweke.


The defendants have filed legal documents with the Court of Appeal in California to dismiss that one claim, on the question of whether AEG Live negligently hired Murray, Jackson’s long time personal physician. Additionally, all but one of her claims against the remaining defendants were dismissed and the California Court of Appeals ordered Michael’s medical records unsealed.

Murray was convicted in 2011 for the involuntary manslaughter death of Michael after administering a fatal dose of propofol to help the pop singer sleep.

Murray hadn’t formally signed his employment contract with AEG at the time of Michael’s death, and say they aren’t responsible for his tragic death.

Paris Jackson questioned about dad's death in lawsuit
AEG Live also want to depose Blanket, 10, but doctor warns it would be "detrimental"
Jackson lawyers complain that AEG Live lawyers were too aggressive with Prince, 16
Questions asked of Prince were "legitimate" in a wrongful death suit, AEG lawyer says
Jackson family is suing AEG Live for billions in Michael Jackson's 2009 death

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Paris Jackson, the 14-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson, is being questioned Thursday about her father's last days as part of her family's wrongful death lawsuit against a concert promoter.

In addition, Jackson lawyers told the judge in a court filing this week they were concerned that lawyers for AEG Live, the company accused of liability in Jackson's death, were "behaving aggressively and erratically" in their questioning of the Jackson children.

AEG Live asked Los Angeles Superior Judge Yvette Palazuelos to order Blanket Jackson to appear for a deposition, but his doctor warned it would be "medically detrimental" to the 10-year-old boy, according to the court filing.

When AEG Live lawyers deposed Prince Jackson, 16, earlier this month, they asked questions intended "to agitate the boy, creating serious concern among his guardians and attorneys," the document said.

Prince "testified that he was intimately involved in his father's affairs," an AEG Live lawyer said in an e-mail defending the questioning.

The wrongful death lawsuit is a high-stakes contest. Prince, Paris, Blanket and their grandmother, Katherine Jackson, are suing AEG Live for billions of dollars. The trial is set to begin in Los Angeles next month.

Jackson lawyers complained that AEG Live lawyers engaged in "a concerted tactical effort made to harass and burden the Jackson family through these abusive discovery processes."

While Blanket -- who was just 6 when his father died on June 25, 2009 -- will not be called as a witness in the trial, AEG Live has tried to force him to sit for a deposition, the filing said.

Blanket's doctor provided a letter saying it would be "medically detrimental" to the boy. "Yet defendants still to this day say they may move to compel Blanket's deposition," the Jackson filing said.
Jackson lawyers accused AEG Live lawyers of mistreating Prince when he was deposed on a recent Saturday. They "behaved in a manner designed to agitate the boy, creating serious concern among his guardians and attorneys," their filing said.

"Defense counsel asked the boy completely irrelevant and repetitive personal questions about whether he sends text messages, whether he send text messages from his phone, and whether he 'tweets,'" they said. "Defense counsel also asked the boy about every place he had ever lived, every teacher he had ever had and about his current efforts to start a career in addition to being a full-time student -- none of which have anything to do with the case at hand."

AEG Live lawyer Jessica Stebbins Bina, in an e-mail included in the court filing, defended her co-counsel Marvin Putnam's questioning of Prince.

"My understanding is that the deposition proceeded with appropriate questioning, and that the questions were legitimate questions appropriate to a wrongful death suit," she said.

The Jackson lawyers also complained about the questioning of family matriarch Katherine Jackson, who is 82. AEG Live lawyers deposed her for nine hours over three days and are asking for a fourth chance, they said. The questioning could have been easily done in two or three hours, they told the judge.

The lawsuit contends that AEG Live is responsible for Jackson's death because it hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, who was administering the surgical anesthetic propofol to Jackson each night for a month to induce sleep as he prepared for a series of concerts organized by AEG Live.

AEG Live contends that Michael Jackson chose Murray as his personal physician. The promoter denies having hired or supervised Murray.

A jury found Murray guilty of involuntary manslaughter after hearing testimony that he violated medical standards in his treatment of Jackson.
