One of driving questions in the wrongful death case is whether it was concert promoter AEG or Jackson who hired and controlled Murray, who is now serving time for involuntary manslaughter,
Confronted with the email as he sat on the witness stand Wednesday, Gongaware said he didn't recall writing it.
“I don’t understand it because we weren’t paying his salary," Gongaware said.

“So why were you writing it?" asked Brian Panish, the Jackson family's attorney.
"I have no idea," Gongaware replied.

AEG was supposed to be paying him but they never did.

Lawyer: Blame Michael Jackson for his death, not AEG Live - 12 News KBMT and K-JAC. News, Weather and Sports for SE Texas

"
"An AEG Live lawyer e-mailed an employment contract to Murray on the morning of June 24, 2009. Murray signed it and faxed it back to the company that day. But the signature line for AEG Live's CEO and Michael Jackson were never signed since Jackson died the next day.

Putnam will point to those blank signature lines as evidence that Murray was never hired by his client. There were negotiations with Murray, but he was never paid, the AEG Live lawyer argue"

Michael Jackson death: Family's civil trial blames AEG - Los Angeles Times

"Murray worked for Jackson for two months but was never paid by AEG because the singer hadn't yet signed the contract, a point that Jorrie, the contract lawyer, noted several times in her testimony."

So are you saying that the emails sent by AEG weren't true?

Who knows? From your link, above: "(AEG Live co-CEO Paul) Gongaware testified that he was joking in the email."
