Michael Jackson's family has lost its bid to hold AEG Live accountable for the singer's death 2009. A jury sided with the concert promoter on Wednesday. Why?
The jury ruled AEG Live did hire Dr. Conrad Murray, which was key for the family, but the jury then ruled Conrad Murray was NOT unfit or incompetent.
The issue that ultimately torpedoed Katherine Jackson's case was whether Murray was competent to treat MJ when he was hired. The jury said he was.
It's an interesting finding, as Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in criminal court for going rogue and doing things that killed Jackson.
Because he was competent at the onset, however, and because AEG's responsibility for his actions as well as Jackson's is limited, the family lost.
