Physician Who Accused Jackson Of ‘Doctor Shopping’ Takes The Stand

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A physician who accused Michael Jackson of “doctor shopping” was called to the stand Thursday by attorneys representing the late singer’s family.

Dr. Allan Metzger, whose video testimony was heard by jurors Wednesday in the wrongful death trial Katherine Jackson filed against AEG Live, again addressed his concerns with the court.

“Did you believe he engaged in doctor shopping?” Jackson family attorney Deborah Chang asked her witness.

“When he was out of our presence because he traveled so much he would use a hotel doctor. He had to shop for a doctor for himself and for his children,” Dr. Metzger said.

“Often he would call me long distance to get advice, but sometimes he had to shop around.”

Attorneys for AEG, who rested their defense yesterday, argue Jackson maintained secrecy surrounding his medical care, including the treatment Dr. Conrad Murray was providing inside Jackson’s bedroom when the pop star died from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol in 2009.

Dr. Metzger, who treated the singer for several years, testified as to Michael Jackson’s condition dating back nearly three decades. He said the late singer was suffering from several painful medical issues while convincing music giants to work with him on the 1985 song We Are The World, written by the pop star to raise money for humanitarian aid in Africa.

Metzger also watched from the witness stand with tears in his eyes as more recent videoswere shown, saying the clips were difficult to watch. Attorneys for AEG vigorously objected to the relevance of the videos, but the judge allowed the jury to watch them.

On cross-examination by attorneys for AEG, Metzger testified he is being paid by Jackson family attorneys $1,000 an hour for his work on the wrongful death case.

Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, is accusing the concert promoting giant of negligently hiring Murray to care for the singer as he prepared for his ill-fated This Is It comeback concert series in London and wants the firm to be held liable for her son’s death.

Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 in Jackson’s death.

AEG says it cannot be held responsible for what was going on behind the bedroom doors between Jackson and Murray when the fatal dose of propofol was administered.

Tomorrow it’s expected the jury will receive its instructions.

Closing arguments are expected to begin next week.

Michael Jackson wrongful death trial: Final witness testifies pop star hated medicine but seemed 'desperate' in April 2009
Dr. Allan Metzer, doctor to Michael Jackson since the early 1980s, testified that Michael Jackson only wanted medication when he really needed it and was a loving father.

The final witness in Michael Jackson’s wrongful death trial cast the King of Pop as a magnanimous musical genius who co-wrote the famine-fighting anthem “We Are The World” in one day and hated taking medicine.
Dr. Allan Metzger treated the superstar singer for more than 25 years and became a trusted confidant and “father figure,” the lawyer who called him as Katherine Jackson’s final rebuttal witness said Thursday.
His testimony struck an emotional chord in the five-week wrongful death trial against concert promoter AEG Live when the iconic video for “We Are The World” was played for jurors.
“We kind of saved it,” Katherine Jackson’s lawyer, Deborah Chang, told the judge as she argued to have the video admitted.
Metzger said Jackson claimed he wrote the lyrics in a 24-hour burst of creativity before the song’s 1985 recording session with the era’s biggest stars, including Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, Cyndi Lauper and co-writer Lionel Richie.
“It was very special to Michael because of the famine,” Metzger said.
Katherine Jackson’s side called Metzger to elaborate on why he called Jackson a “doctor shopper” a half-dozen times during videotaped deposition testimony previously played for jurors.

Metzger said Thursday that his characterization only meant Jackson had to “shop” for “quality” doctors for his family when he moved to new cities.

He said he didn’t believe his friendship with the “Thriller” singer was dependent on his prescription pad.
“Did you ever believe or suspect he sought pain killers for a high or sheer (pleasure)?” Chang asked Metzger.
“No, Michael abhorred medicine and only used it when he was in pain. I don’t believe this was in any way a recreational phenomenon,” he said.
“Michael was very private,” he said, echoing his deposition testimony. But he “would often rely on others and had faith in the medical profession that we would always do what was right.”
Metzger, a rheumatologist and internist who first treated Jackson in 1983 for discoid Lupus, said he admired his “buddy” for his generosity and “positive nature.”

He chuckled at a photo showing him with Jackson in a fat suit and full makeup for the singer’s role as the white mayor of a fictional town in the short film “Ghosts.”
He said they visited a Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop together that day, and nobody recognized the incognito idol.

Metzger called Jackson an “extremely loving” dad whose heart was in the right place when he put masks and veils on his three kids — Prince, 16, Paris, 15, and Blanket, 11.
“I think he did a wise thing in the early years, not exposing their faces so they could go out in public,” he testified. “We went to a few movies together, and nobody knew who they were.”
Katherine Jackson and the kids are suing concert promoter AEG Live for damages potentially topping $1 billion. They claim AEG negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death.
AEG has denied any wrongdoing, saying it was Jackson who personally hired Murray and secretly begged him for the surgery-strength anesthetic that killed him.

Metzger testified that Jackson seemed “desperate” in April 2009 — two months before his death — when he asked for intravenous sleep medication during a private meeting at his rented mansion. He said the singer indicated he was having trouble sleeping in the run-up to his doomed “This Is It” comeback concert series in London.
The doctor said he told Jackson such treatment was potentially life-threatening in a home setting.
He said he never saw the superstar alive again.

Metzger’s testimony was scheduled to end Thursday, but it didn’t due in large part to a dispute over his relationship with Jackson’s famous sister Janet and prior reprimands by the Medical Board of California.
The board rapped Metzger in 2000 for writing prescriptions for Janet Jackson using someone else’s name.
The judge put Metzger’s history of reprimands off limits and had to strike some testimony when an AEG lawyer asked a related question.
Closing arguments are now scheduled to begin Tuesday.

Stay Out! Jackson Family Moves To Restrict Media From Closing Arguments Of Blockbuster AEG Trial

Katherine Jackson and millions of Michael Jackson fans around the world could get closure in the next few weeks as the Jackson family matriarch’s wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoting company AEG finally comes to an end. But RadarOnline.com has learned that Jackson is attempting to ensure that it doesn’t turn into a media circus as the lawyers for each side give their closing statements: On September 18, her lawyers filed a brief attempting to block a proposed move to a larger courtroom that could accommodate more members of the press.

“Counsel for defendants were quite startled — and concerned — when the Court informed the parties that the Court intended to conduct closing arguments in the large courtroom, rather than in [the room] where the entire trial has been held,” the documents read. “We write to ask the Court to reconsider.”

Jackson’s attorneys argue that “the conspicuous increase in media presence that will necessarily accompany the move could have a substantial and prejudicial effect on the jury.” They also claim that it could lend undue importance to the closing statements, which are legally less important to the case than the evidence that has previously been presented.

“For those reasons, defendants request that the jury hear the parties’ closing arguments in [the room they've been in all along],” the documents read.

But they won’t block out the press entirely, proposing that the court set up a closed-circuit feed in another room that will protect “the jury from the unsettling, distracting effects of media presence.”

Stay tuned to RadarOnline.com as the case heads to a final verdict.

Michael Jackson wrongful death trial: Testimony wraps up

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Testimony finally wrapped up in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial. On Friday, jurors heard from a doctor who told the singer propofol was dangerous.

A key question in the case centers on "foreseeability." Attorneys for Katherine Jackson say that AEG Live knew or should have known that the star for the This Is It tour had a history of prescription drug dependency and should have monitored Conrad Murray, the physician who provided him nightly infusions of the anesthetic propofol.

"The evidence is clear that Michael Jackson was on a decline for 60 days as written in internal emails that AEG did nothing in supervising Dr. Murray or taking action to stop that," said Jackson attorney Brian Panish.

Attorneys for AEG say Jackson's longtime habit caught up with him.

"Michael Jackson was a grown man who kept all of his addiction -- including his biggest addiction, propofol -- secret. Therefore, I think one has to look to personal responsibility here," said AEG attorney Marvin Putnam.

The final doctor to testify, Allan Metzger, treated Jackson for 27 years. Metzger testified in a video deposition that Jackson was "secretive about medicine, secretive about procedures, secretive about all kinds of stuff."

The doctor says that during the HIStory tour in 1997, he prescribed regular sleep aids for Jackson and that his close aides knew about his insomnia.

One of the directors on that tour was Paul Gongaware, who later became an AEG executive.

"Mr. Gongaware knew and everyone knew," said Panish.

Dr. Metzger's recollection on the stand was not clear about Gongaware. The AEG defense says either way, there was no sign Jackson would pursue propofol as a sleep aid.

"If it did happen two tours ago, 20 years before this one, he was told that Michael Jackson had problems sleeping, I don't think that says anything but that Michael Jackson had problems sleeping," said Putnam.

Opposing attorneys are similarly polarized on the relevance of Murray's independent contractor agreement drawn up by AEG. The Jackson attorneys say through it AEG pressured Murray to do what Jackson wanted.

"They are right. It is about responsibility. They just don't want to accept any," said Panish.

The defense says the tour promoters only facilitated what Jackson wanted.

"AEG Live never hired Dr. Conrad Murray," said Putnam.

Meantime, there was a legal victory for Katherine Jackson on Friday. The judge ruled she was a dependant of her son for basic necessities and will therefore be allowed to seek compensation from AEG should the jury rule in her favor.

Michael Jackson's mother has standing to collect damages, judge rules

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Jurors in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial have one less question to decide after the judge issued a partial directed verdict in favor of Jackson's mother Friday.

Katherine Jackson has standing to seek damages against concert promoter AEG Live in the pop icon's death because evidence proved her son provided for "everything," including her household expenses and food, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos said in a ruling Friday afternoon.

Lawyers for AEG Live unsuccessfully argued that Jackson's elderly mother could not sue because she was also supported by daughter Janet Jackson.

Testimony ended Friday in the five-month-long trial, setting the stage for closing arguments to begin Tuesday. Judge Palazuelos will read her instructions to the jury on Monday.

Jackson's mother and three children contend AEG Live is liable in his death because it negligently hired, retained or supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in November 2011 and sentenced to four years in prison.

Murray told police he infused Jackson with the surgical anesthetic propofol for 60 nights to treat his insomnia as he prepared for his comeback concerts. The coroner ruled his death on June 25, 2009, was from a propofol overdose.

AEG Live lawyers have argued it was Jackson who chose and controlled Murray and that their executives had no way of knowing about the dangerous treatments the doctor was giving Jackson in the privacy of his bedroom.

The judge cited testimony from Katherine Jackson and a financial expert hired by AEG Live in her partial directed verdict ruling.
The defense expert concluded that the Michael Jackson paid for the "bulk" of his mother's support, including for her home, transportation, food and insurance, the ruling said.

The only evidence AEG Live had supporting their defense was Katherine Jackson's testimony that her youngest daughter, Janet Jackson, gave her $10,000 a month for "some period of years," the judge wrote.

"There is no evidence that Janet Jackson's contributions negated Katherine Jackson's reliance -- to some extent -- on [Michael Jackson's] contributions for the necessaries of life," Palazuelos ruled.

California law does not allow parents to seek wrongful-death damages if their offspring had other heirs, unless they can prove they were financially dependent on their child.

The judge is moving the trial to a much larger courtroom in the downtown Los Angeles courthouse, which will allow more than 300 people to watch closing arguments. The trial began in a courtroom that only seats 60 people.

Вот такой очень интересный коммент нашла в тех же твиттах:

The doc talked about the plan he wrote to help MJ sleep. He said MJ gave permission for him to share plan w/ Rowe, Faye and security guards

Доктор говорил о плане, который он написал чтобы помочь Майклу со сном. Он сказал, что Майкл дал ему разрешение поделиться планом с Роу, Фэй и телохранителями.
