Katherine Jackson’s wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live took an interesting turn Monday when two company executives were dismissed as defendants.
AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips and executive Paul Gongaware are no longer liable in the wrongful death lawsuit, in which she is claiming billions in damages.
The company as a whole is left as the sole defendant.
Katherine’s claim is that AEG was negligent in hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, who administered a lethal dose of Propofol to Michael Jackson in 2009.
Murray was subsequently convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 and sentenced to four years in prison, but a giant lawsuit against AEG followed.
