I'd like to be a juror on this one .....

Jury is seated in Jackson wrongful death case

Mostly because I'd like to see if they could convince me to give the family more money.

AEG was responsible for his death. It was quite obvious that Michael was not well.

The suits filled on behalf of Jackson's children. They'll get money, the question is how much.

It should be interesting to see if a jury believes Jacksons choreographer friend Robson in the new abuse allegations trial.

I guess the law and the facts in the case are irrelevant to you?

If a rich person is killed by maniac drunk driver who loses control of his car are you going to refuse to award damages against the drunk because the decedent's family won't hurt for money?

In order to reach that conclusion, you'd have to lie to get on the jury, you'd have to ignore the judge's instructions, you'd have to disregard all the facts.

How much much (or how little) money someone already has is irrelevant to their right to bring a claim for wrongful death or personal injury.

AEG, the concert promoters knew that Michael Jackson was not well. Kenny Ortega, the Director addressed these concerns and were ignored by both AEG and Conrad.

Michael was never a big man, but he was startling thin in the This is It movie. Those were not true rehearsals.

Let's hope that you're never a jury member with such bias.

Prince was the first of the Jacksons to testify during the trial. He testified that when he arrived at the hospital where his father had been rushed, the pop singer’s personal physician met him and his siblings.
"Sorry kids. Dad's dead," he said Dr. Conrad Murray told them.
"We just cried," the performer's son said.

Well Looks as if the Jackson's have lost. Very wrong decision.

If the general public was aware that Jackson hired Dr. Conrad Murray as his own personal physician, why would Katherine Jackson believe that AEG had anything to do with Michael's death? That trial was a huge waste of taxpayer money, not to say that Jackson's death was not tragic. We are a litigious society.
