Legal Setback For Katherine Jackson In Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Lawsuit - AEG Executives Dismissed
Katherine Jackson suffered a major legal setback in her son's wrongful death lawsuit, after the judge dismissed two AEG executives as defendants, but allowed the case against the concert promoter to proceed.
Los Angeles Superior Court Yvette Palazuelos said lawyers for Michael Jackson's mother hadn't shown enough evidence that Randy Phillips, former CEO of AEG Live, and promoter Paul Gongaware, were responsible for the death of the King of Pop, according to the Associated Press.
However, the jury will be allowed to determine if AEG Live hired Jackson's physician, Conrad Murray, who was convicted in the involuntary manslaughter death of Jackson.
Recently, Katherine Jackson opened up for the first time about granddaughter, Paris' recent suicide attempt.
She revealed that after Michael’s 2009 death, at the mortuary, Paris kissed her dad and told him, “I don’t want to live without you.”

And after moving in with her grandmother, Paris covered her room with memories of her dad.
“She had to have his pictures everywhere in her room,” Katherine said.
Testimony in the trial will resume next week, because a juror is taking care of a sick family member. Closing arguments are expected to begin in the next two weeks.
