Share this post

A wrongful death lawsuit brought by Michael Jackson's mother goes to trial today in a Los Angeles courtroom. Authorities say the pop star and Gary native died nearly four years ago of a fatal combination of sedatives and the anesthetic propofol. .Catherine Jackson is seeking billions of dollars from concert promoter AEG Live.  ABC News legal analyst Royal Oakes says in the opening, "lawyers for the Jackson family will claim A-E-G hired Dr. Murray, promised to pay them a massive sum of 150-thousand dollars a month and in return pressured him to make sure Michael was concert-ready even if it meant risking the singer's life."
