AEG not liable in Michael Jackson's death, jury finds / AEG не несет ответственность за смерть Майкла Джексона, признают присяжные

Los Angeles (CNN) -- A Los Angeles jury decided Wednesday that AEG Live hired Dr. Conrad Murray, but also concluded that the concert promoter was not liable for Michael Jackson's drug overdose death.

The jury decided that Murray was competent, so even though AEG Live hired him, it was not liable for Jackson's death and didn't owe the Jackson family millions of dollars in compensation.

"I counted Michael Jackson a creative partner and a friend," the company's CEO Randy Phillips said. "We lost one of the world's greatest musical geniuses, but I am relieved and deeply grateful that the jury recognized that neither I, nor anyone else at AEG Live, played any part in Michael's tragic death."

The verdict brings the five-month-long trial to a close.

The jury accepted AEG Live lawyers' arguments that the company was not negligent because its executives had no way of knowing that Murray -- licensed to practice in four states and never sued for malpractice -- was a risk to Jackson. The singer was a secretive drug addict who kept even his closest relatives in the dark about his use of propofol to sleep, they contended.

Jackson's mother, Katherine, and the singer's three children sued AEG Live in 2010, arguing that the company's negligence in hiring, retaining or supervising Murray was a factor in the singer's June 25, 2009, death.

Jackson died of an overdose of the surgical anesthetic propofol, which Murray told investigators he was using to treat the singer's insomnia so he could rest for rehearsals. Murray is set to be released from jail later this month after serving two years for involuntary manslaughter.

Jackson died just days before his comeback tour -- promoted and produced by AEG Live -- was set to debut in London in the summer of 2009.

"We felt (Murray) was competent" to be Jackson's general practitioner, said juror Greg Barden. "That doesn't mean we felt he was ethical."

Barden said jurors thought the second question -- which said, "Was Dr. Conrad Murray unfit or incompetent to perform the work for which he was hired?" -- was confusing and took some time, and several votes, to work out. In the end, they voted 10-2 to answer "No."

He said one of the key pieces of evidence was the contract between Murray and AEG.

"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, it was not a tragedy of AEG Live's making," attorney Marvin Putnam said in a written statement.

Murray's lawyer, Valerie Wass, let out a gasp when she heard the decision and was visibly shaken.
Because jurors concluded that AEG Live was not liable, they did not consider other questions on the verdict form that would have determined how much in damages the promoter would have paid Katherine, Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson.

Jackson lead lawyer Brian Panish suggested a range between $1 billion and $2 billion to replace the earnings lost by Jackson's death at age 50 and the non-economic -- or personal -- damages from the loss of a father and son.

The damage award, however, would have been reduced by the percentage of blame jurors decided Michael Jackson shared in his death. The Jacksons lawyer suggested in closing arguments that they assign 20% of the liability to Jackson.

AEG's lawyers had contended Jackson chose Murray, who had treated him for three years as a family physician, but Jackson lawyers had argued the promoters chose to negotiate their own contract with the doctor so they could control him.

The case is unlikely to end with the jury's verdict because Jackson lawyers have said they have grounds for an appeal, which could take years to decide.

Jurors appeared engaged and entertained during the 21-week trial that included dramatic testimony by Jackson's mother, son and former wife.

Jury rejects Jackson lawsuit in wrongful death trial

Los Angeles — A California jury on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit brought by Michael Jackson's family seeking massive damages from tour promoter AEG Live over his 2009 death.

The 12-person panel agreed that AEG Live hired Conrad Murray, but found that he was not unfit or incompetent for the job, which was one of the requirements for the Jackson lawsuit to succeed.

The jury had deliberated for three days after a five-month trial in which the Jackson family alleged that AEG Live negligently hired and supervised Murray.

AEG Live lead lawyer Marvin Putnam welcomed the verdict.

"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, it was not a tragedy of AEG Live's making," he said in a statement.

AEG Live executive Randy Phillips, one of two key managers who testified at the trial, said: "I counted Michael Jackson a creative partner and a friend.

"We lost one of the world's greatest musical geniuses, but I am relieved and deeply grateful that the jury recognized that neither I, nor anyone else at AEG Live, played any part in Michael's tragic death."

Jackson died on June 25, 2009 from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol, given by doctor Conrad Murray at his rented mansion in Los Angeles, where he was rehearsing for the shows at London's O2 Arena.

Murray, a Grenada-born cardiologist, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in a criminal trial in 2011 for giving the drug to the star -- who suffered from chronic insomnia -- to help him sleep. He was jailed for four years.

In the civil trial, the singer's mother Katherine Jackson, 83, alleged that AEG Live negligently hired an inappropriate and incompetent doctor and missed a series of red flags about the star's failing health in the run-up to his death.

The "This is It" tour was Jackson's bid at a comeback four years after his infamous child molestation trial. He was acquitted, but his image was destroyed, and he desperately needed to make money.
The Jacksons wanted AEG Live to pay $85 million to each of the star's three children for emotional loss, and an unspecified amount for economic losses, estimated at up to $1.6 billion. AEG's lawyers called the figures ridiculous.

The verdict took only minutes to be read out at a Los Angeles courtroom, with answers only given to two out of the 16 questions on the jury verdict form.

There was the start of applause when she read out the "Yes" response to the first question, of whether AEG Live hired Murray -- a key issue in dispute for the last four years.

But there were gasps when, to the second question, the clerk read "No," effectively announcing the lawsuit had been dismissed.

"There was simply no evidence that anyone at AEG did anything wrong," said AEG Live lawyer Putnam.

"The win was a great victory for Mr. Phillips in particular, who was personally sued by the Jacksons."

MICHAEL JACKSON DEATH
TRIAL JACKSON
FAMILY LOSES


Изображение

4:34PM PDT:  The jury foreman just explained the logic behind the verdict.  They felt Murray was competent to do the job for which he was hired -- to be a good general practitioner.  Jurors felt Murray had gone to a good school and was qualified.  The juror added, "That doesn't mean we felt he was ethical.  Had that question been in there, it could have been a different outcome.


The Jackson family just LOST their bid to hold AEG Live accountable for Michael Jackson's death.

The jury ruled AEG Live did hire Conrad Murray.  That's huge.  The jury then ruled Conrad Murray was NOT unfit or incompetent to treat MJ.   Katherine and the kids lose.

So here's the thing.  The question that ruined Katherine's case was whether Murray was competent to handle Jackson when he was hired, and the jury said he was.  Ironically, a jury in the criminal case ruled Murray then went off the rails and did things that ultimately killed MJ.  But because he was competent at the outset -- the Jackson family lost.

Katherine Jackson and Michael's 3 kids were suing AEG, claiming the company negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray and pushed MJ way beyond the limits for his "This Is It" tour.

AEG claimed Michael hired Murray and what went on between them was a secret to all ... including AEG.

Katherine Jackson Loses Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against AEG

The jury in the Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit reached a verdict on Wednesday, and found that AEG is not responsible for the King of Pop’s death, RadarOnline.com is reporting.

Although the jury found that AEG hired Conrad Murray to be Michael’s physician, they didn’t find the former cardiologist unfit to be his personal physician.

Katherine Jackson, 83, is suing the concert promoter for wrongful death saying the company’s executives negligently hired the doctor who overdosed her son and should be held financially liable.

Onlookers in the courtroom saw no visible reaction to the verdict from Katherine.

AEG Live maintains that Michael kept his dependency on proposal a secret from outsiders, that a proposed contract with Murray was never fully executed and they could not have foreseen that Murray posed a danger to Michael.

The Jackson family matriarch and Michael’s children were asking for over $1 billion in damages. The jury deliberated for 17 hours and because it is a civil trial, the decision doesn’t have to be unanimous.

Murray is expected to be released from jail on Oct. 28, after serving two years of a four year sentence when a jury found him guilty of the involuntary manslaughter death of Michael.

He didn’t testify at the civil trial.

Live updates: Michael Jackson jury explains why it sided with AEG

Jurors in the Michael Jackson wrongful-death case sided with AEG Live that the singer's death was a tragedy -- but not one for which the concert promoter was responsible.

After three days of deliberations, the jury unanimously agreed that AEG Live hired the doctor, who gave the singer a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol. But they said Dr. Conrad Murray was competent and awarded no money to the pop star's family.

"There are really no winners in this," jury foreman Gregg Barden said. "Somebody had to die for us to be here. ... It was really a tragic situation."

Barden said the jurors struggled with questions about Murray. They found him competent to serve as a general practitioner -- he had a medical license from an accredited university.

"We felt he was competent," Barden said. "That doesn’t mean we felt he was ethical. If ethical was in the question, it might have been a different outcome. In the end, he was very unethical. He did something he shouldn’t have done. "

Attorneys for the family had said that economic damages could surpass $1 billion. They wanted each of Jackson's children awarded $85 million and another $35 million paid to Katherine Jackson.

Jackson’s mother and three children brought the lawsuit, saying AEG Live hired and supervised Murray.

In a written statement, AEG's lead attorney, Marvin Putnam said: “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, it was not a tragedy of AEG Live’s making."

Randy Phillips, an AEG executive named in the lawsuit, said in a statement: "We lost one of the world’s greatest musical geniuses, but I am relieved and deeply grateful that the jury recognized that neither I, nor anyone else at AEG Live, played any part in Michael’s tragic death."

Katherine Jackson left the courthouse without talking to reporters.

The case, which delved into Jackson’s drug use, his emotional state and his physical health, never strayed far from the central question of whether it was the singer himself who was to blame for his own demise by insisting on hiring the doctor who killed him, or AEG for directing and controlling the physician.

Several fans had gathered to hear the verdict.

"I don't like it," said Leslie Cole, 41. "I really don't like it."

Barbara De L'orme, 42, of Studio City, wore a T-shirt with a picture of Katherine Jackson. She said she felt devastated by the verdict.

"My heart is broken," she said. "This was the greatest artist that we ever had and they treated him like this. The evidence was right there."

Michael Jackson concert promoter AEG Live NOT liable in $1.5B wrongful death suit, jury rules in bombshell verdict  

Family of King of Pop sued AEG Live over hiring of Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor who administered the lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol in 2009, but L.A. jury finds company didn't have reason to suspect physician at the time.

Изображение
Jurors rejected the $1.5 billion dollar lawsuit brought by the family of the late Michael Jackson claiming concert AEG Live is responsible for the pop singer’s death by hiring the doctor whose negligence killed him.

In a resounding rebuke of the claim Michael Jackson died at the hands of greedy concert promoters, a Los Angeles jury decided the singer’s mom and kids don’t deserve a dime from AEG Live for his bizarre overdose in his private bedroom.

The jury of six men and six women returned their unanimous verdict Wednesday after four days of deliberation in the billion-dollar wrongful death lawsuit.

The panel decided AEG hired Dr. Conrad Murray, but the King of Pop’s own fancy footwork kept his use of the surgery-strength anesthetic propofol a secret from AEG Live. The jurors found the company had no reason to suspect a licensed doctor with no malpractice claims would violate his Hippocratic Oath with daredevil drug infusions.

The verdict capped five months of testimony in the closely watched case that exposed many secrets of the reclusive “Thriller” singer's personal life.

“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, it was not a tragedy of AEG Live’s making,” said Marvin Putnam, the concert promoter’s lead attorney.

More than 50 witnesses, including Jackson’s eldest son, Prince, 16, and his ex-wife, Debbie Rowe, took the stand.

Rowe told jurors that Michael used propofol to sleep as far back as 1997 during his HIStory tour.
Michael’s mother and brother, Randy, and mom revealed previously unconfirmed reports of drug interventions.

“There was simply no evidence that anyone at AEG did anything wrong,” Putnam said.

He called the verdict a “great victory” for AEG Live, particularly its Chief Executive Officer Randy Phillips.

Phillips said the verdict was bittersweet.

“I counted Michael Jackson a creative partner and a friend,” Phillips said. “We lost one of the world’s greatest musical geniuses, but I am relieved and deeply grateful that the jury recognized that neither I, nor anyone else at AEG Live, played any part in Michael's tragic death."

Dan Beckerman — president and CEO of AEG Inc., AEG Live’s parent company — also expressed relief over the jury’s decision.

“I am pleased that the jury recognized that this lawsuit was without merit, and the entire AEG family looks forward to putting this unfortunate chapter behind us,” Beckerman said.

Katherine Jackson maintained a stoic demeanor as the verdict was announced about 6:30 p.m. Pacific time. She walked out of the courtroom, but once outside got into a wheelchair with the help of her nephew, Trent Jackson.

She did not make a statement or accept bouquets of roses from diehard fans of her dead son gathered outside the courthouse.

“This is a complete shock to Michael’s fans and Katherine’s supporters,” fan Karlene Taylor, who attended almost every day of the trial, told the Daily News.

During the trial, jurors also got a detailed look at Michael’s personal spending and heard he was awash in debts topping $400 million when he died.

Katherine Jackson’s lead attorney, Brian Panish, built his case on the notion that AEG created a dangerous conflict of interest when it drafted a contract with Dr. Murray that pulled the plug on his $150,000-per-month salary if Michael didn't perform.

He said AEG executives saw Michael simply as a cash cow and failed to check on Dr. Murray's dire financial distress or help Michael as he deteriorated into a cold, emaciated basket case before their very eyes.

AEG Live lead attorney Marvin Putnam delivers his closing arguments last Friday.

Panish asked the jury to find AEG liable for most of the $1.2 billion that his side believed Michael could have earned had he lived. He also asked for $85 million in personal damages for each of Michael's kids and his mom.

But AEG produced medical records that tied Michael to Dr. Murray as far back as 2006, and the company argued that Michael kept his thirst for propofol a fiercely guarded secret.

Putnam said in his closing argument that Dr. Murray shipped propofol to Los Angeles for Michael in April 2009, before AEG even knew he existed. He said had AEG known what Murray and Michael were doing behind closed doors, his client would have acted immediately.

"Simply stated, AEG never would have agreed to finance this tour if it knew Mr. Jackson played Russian roulette every night in his bedroom. It wasn't going to happen," Putnam said. "If AEG knew, it would have ruined everything."

Изображение
Brian Panish, attorney for the Michael Jackson family, delivers his rebuttal argument to jurors last week.

He said Murray had no history of malpractice claims or overdosing patients before Michael and passed a criminal background check to get his medical license in California.

He called Panish's request for $1.5 billion both "ridiculous" and "absurd."

Katherine, 83, sat through most of the trial along with her nephew Trent and a revolving cast of relatives that included daughters Rebbie and Janet, and grandsons Taj and TJ.

Dr. Murray, convicted of involuntary manslaughter, followed the trial from his jail cell in downtown Los Angeles but signaled he would plead the fifth if called as a witness, his lawyer said.

He's expected to be released later this month due to good behavior and jail overcrowding.

Michael's only daughter, Paris, 15, was a highly anticipated witness at the start of the trial last April but appeared only in snippets of videotaped deposition testimony after she slashed her arm with a kitchen knife in a suicide bid last June.

In one revealing deposition excerpt, Paris claimed her dad had a strange relationship with her mysterious longtime nanny Grace Rwaramba.

"He said she was sneaky," Paris testified during her deposition. "When he would stay in a hotel, or whatever, she would call the hotel and say that she was his wife. She was obsessed with him. ...They'd let her in, and she'd be, like, in his bed."

Rwaramba was on Katherine's original witness list but was not called despite sitting for deposition testimony after the trial started.

Celebrities on the Jackson family witness list — including Spike Lee, Diana Ross and Lisa Marie Presley — were never called to testify.

Michael Jackson verdict: Family gets no money in huge AEG victory

Entertainment giant AEG Live scored a major win in the Michael Jackson case after a Los Angeles jury unanimously decided that the concert promoter was not liable in the singer's death.  

The jury -- which found that AEG hired Dr. Conrad Murray and that he was a competent doctor -- did not award any money to the singer's mother Katherine Jackson or his three children. They had been seeking damages of more than $1 billion.

It took only three days for the jury to reach the verdict after a five-month trial that included dozens of witnesses.

Immediately after the verdict, jurors agreed to talk to attorneys behind closed doors. They have yet to address reporters.

But in a written statement, AEG's lead attorney, Marvin Putnam said: “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, it was not a tragedy of AEG Live’s making."

Randy Phillips, an AEG executive named in the lawsuit, said in a statement: "We lost one of the world’s greatest musical geniuses, but I am relieved and deeply grateful that the jury recognized that neither I, nor anyone else at AEG Live, played any part in Michael’s tragic death."

Katherine Jackson left the courthouse without talking to reporters.

Several fans had gathered to hear the verdict.

"I don't like it," said Leslie Cole, 41. "I really don't like it."

Barbara De L'orme, 42, of Studio City, wore a T-shirt with a picture of Katherine Jackson. She said she felt devastated by the verdict.

"My heart is broken," she said. "This was the greatest artist that we ever had and they treated him like this. The evidence was right there."

Jackson’s mother and three children brought the lawsuit, saying AEG Live hired and supervised Murray, who gave Jackson the fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol.

The family’s attorney painted a picture of a cold, calculating entertainment enterprise that failed to notice that Murray was financially desperate and then pushed the physician to get Jackson ready to tour even though the singer was in frail health and was crippled by fear.

"They're going to kill me, they're going to kill me,'" Jackson’s eldest son, Prince, testified, recalling the singer's words in one his final conversations with his father.

The Jackson family’s legal team asked jurors to award $85 million to each of the pop star’s children and another $35 million to his mother. In addition, lawyers suggested AEG be asked to pay as much as $1.5 billion in economic losses.

AEG tried turning the tables during the trial, all but putting Michael Jackson on trial. AEG said Jackson was the one who brought aboard Murray and that the singer was a fully-formed drug user who had demanded anesthetics as a sleep aid during earlier tours. AEG said it was Jackson who planted the seeds of his demise.

AEG Cleared Of Wrongdoing In Michael Jackson’s Death

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — AEG Live was cleared of wrongdoing Wednesday as jurors reached a verdict in Michael Jackson’s wrongful death trial.

Michael Jackson’s mother, 83-year-old Katherine Jackson, filed a lawsuit against AEG Live in Sept. 2010 on behalf of herself and her son’s three children. She claimed AEG negligently hired Dr. Conrad Murray to care for the singer as he prepared for his ill-fated “This Is It” comeback concert series and sought to have the firm held liable for her son’s death.

Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death and sentenced in November 2011 to four years in the Los Angeles County men’s jail.

The 12-person jury found that AEG Live did hire Murray to care for Jackson but did not find the physician unfit or incompetent to perform the work for which he was hired. KCAL9′s Randy Paige reports Katherine Jackson was in the Los Angeles courtroom as the verdict was read but gave no reaction.

AEG Live lead attorney Marvin Putnam and general counsel Shawn Trell spoke to members of the media shortly after the verdict was read, commending the jurors for their service during the 80-day trial and revealing their team is pleased with the outcome.

“Obviously we’re very pleased with the result,” Trell said. “We’re very grateful to the jury for the result that they reached.”

“It’s remarkable to have a five-month long trial and not one juror left the jurors’ box,” he said.

Putnam also indicated that AEG never considered negotiating a settlement with the Jackson family, contending that his client was in no way negligent.

“I can say there was never a chance that AEG Live would have settled this matter because that would have been inappropriate,” Putnam said.

Jackson family attorney Kevin Boyle said that his team plans to explore its options.

“We of course are not happy with the result as it stands now,” Boyle said.

The jury foreman, juror number six Greg Barden, said outside the courtroom he felt the appropriate verdict was reached.

“We reached a verdict that we understand not everybody is going to agree with,” he said.

Barden also revealed that the wording of the second question on the jury form – asking if Murray was “unfit or incompetent to perform the work for which he was hired” – narrowed the jurors’ decision.

“Conrad Murray was hired to be a general practitioner. Conrad Murray had a license. He graduated from an accredited college… That doesn’t mean we felt he was ethical, and maybe if the word ‘ethical’ was in the question, it might have been a different outcome,” he said.

AEG officials argued throughout the trial the pop star’s death was a matter of personal, not corporate, responsibility.

Attorneys for the company, who rested their defense Sept.18, argued Jackson maintained secrecy surrounding his medical care, including the treatment Dr. Conrad Murray provided the pop star inside his bedroom when he died from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol in June 2009.

Attorneys for the Jackson family told the jury a reasonable compensation for the loss of Michael Jackson would be $85 million for each of Jackson’s three children, and $35 million for his mother, far less than the $1 billion experts in the case had predicted based on projections of what Jackson could have earned if he lived.

The jury began deliberating Sept. 26., about five months after opening statements were made.

Judge Yvette Palazuelos presided over the case.

AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips and co-CEO Paul Gongaware were dismissed as defendants last month.
