The family of Michael Jackson filed a wrongful death lawsuit against AEG, the entertainment company that was promoting the concerts that Jackson was preparing for at the time of his death. Last week, a jury was selected for the wrongful death trial, and opening statements in the trial are expected to begin next week.
The lawsuit was filed by Jackson’s mother and his three children, and it alleges that AEG is liable for Jackson’s death in 2009.
The lawsuit alleges that AEG was negligent in its hiring of Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted in 2011 of involuntary manslaughter for giving Jackson a fatal dose of an anesthetic drug.
It is expected that the wrongful death complaint will last many weeks, and the plaintiff is seeking millions of dollars in wrongful death damages.
