AEG to Murray: Go Pound Sand

11/17/2009 10:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

AEG will not pay Michael Jackson's troubled doctor a penny, sources tell TMZ.

AEG to Murray: Go Pound Sand

As we first reported, Dr. Conrad Murray may sue AEG for $300,000 -- the money he claims he's entitled to under a contract he signed with AEG to provide MJ with medical services. But sources connected with AEG tell TMZ the contract was never signed.

We're told a contract was drafted but it required three signatures -- AEG, Michael Jackson and Dr. Conrad Murray. Sources say Dr. Murray signed the contract and sent it to AEG but neither AEG nor MJ ever signed it.

The contract, we're told, also said it expressly hinged on Jackson signing.

Sources say AEG is drawing a hard line. They will not pay Murray a penny.

He admitted to the injection of propofol, but so far that has not been proven to be a criminal act in a court of law, or even a negligent act in a civil court.

There are such things as "legal defenses" - which means even if a defendant admits to doing an act, and that act has also been legally proven to be the proximate cause of the harm - the defendant can still be found not guilty or not liable if the legal defense is successful.

Not saying Murray would have an easy time in criminal or civil court, no way, but there are still unknown facts surrounding this case, and thus he is still legally innocent, whether we like it or not.

The only thing due this jackass is a prision cell for many years. MJ would not be dead right now if this man was a real doctor and not a quack.
He wanted money so badly that he did not say "NO" to Michael that is not a good thing for you..

This guy needs to loose the Dr.Lisence and gain a prision number...
He wants to get paid for killing MJ.

Regarding message #2...a Luke Spencer..You really have no idea what you are talking about. You are just listening to the media which is notorious for grabbing at headlines and then not doing any othe research. First off, the insurance company paid the family in order to aviod a long drawn out ordeal, not Michael. He even signed the agreement saying he in no way admits to any wrong behavior. At that point, he was so upset, he just wanted it to go away.. That's what led to the second family to decide to blackmail him when he stopped supporting their every whim. If you read any of the coverage of the trial, as well as the transcripts that are now available on line, you would see how much of a "mark" Michael Jackson was. He was an artist who had no idea how to judge people and the worst of the worst took advantage of him . By the way, the son from the trial has legally divorced his parents and his father, who drugged him while in the dentist chair to get him to say bad things about Michael, apparently killed himself just today. Karma is a bitch, isn't it?

Check out this Youtube and you will find Michael's former lawyer speaking at Harvard. He spells out how he was able to so convincingly prove that Michael was innocent to the jury.

For Sure    

Although you are innocent until proven guilty. In this case since he admitted sp (for the sp police on here) to giving him propofol the question is not as to innocence or guilt. It is really the administering of the drug.
1. He did not have a heart monitor in the room
2. He did not have a resuscitator in the room
3. He wasn't in the room (by his own admission)
4. He gave him other drugs within to short of a time before administering the Propofol.
5. Stupidity..... severe case of it!!!
6. He did not follow protocol!!!!

What they are investigating here is deliveries ... as a cardiologist his license did not cover the dispensing of the drug propofol....

So there are lot's of unanswered questions.

Is he Guilty of stupidity... Yes
Is he guilty of administering Propofol...Yes ( he admitted it)

What they are sorting out is what else they can charge him with....

Keep in mind the DEA is investigating also ...those are seperate and above these charges....

Murry may not be guilty yet according to the law but morally he is guilty.

He is morally guilty of giving a dangerous drug out side of a hospital that no other dr in his right mind would do.

He is morally guilty of leaving his patience bedside while under this dangerous drug.

He is morally guilty of giving other drugs that a good dr would not give with this drug.

He is morally guilty of not having the proper equipment on hand in case of a problem.

He is morally guilty of not calling 911 right away.

I accept the fact that MJ has some responablity for this and he has paid his price with his life but that by no means excuses Murry of his responability as a dr.

I don't care if Michael demanded to have Murray as his private doc or not, I agree that AEG certainly should have done a background check on this man who was had such incredible intimate solo access to their star. In that sense alone AEG really was grossly negligent, and they have themselves to blame as well.

Even a perfunctory background check would have revealed much to worry about ... a very desperate man, inclined to do very desperate things. Murray could not even have gotten a job as bank teller if he'd applied, due to appalling financial problems and dead-beat dad issues!

Jury Decision Based Entirely On Evidence
(Media's Declarations of Innocence Inaccurate)


Juries never find defendants innocent. They cannot. Not only is it not their job, it is not within their power. They can only find them "not guilty."

A verdict of "not guilty" can mean two entirely different things. It can, of course, mean that you believe the defendant is innocent However, it can mean something entirely different. A verdict of "not guilty" can mean a verdict of "not proven." Even if you are very sure the defendant is guilty, but the state has not proven it "beyond a reasonable doubt," then it is your sworn duty to return a verdict of "not guilty."

# 7n - LUKE "Turning him into a saint, however, is disgusting and spreads a message that pedophilia is okay as long as you have talent and money."

Apparently you missed the news--

MJ was found not guilty.

TURNING MJ INTO A PEDOPHILE IS DISGUSTING AND INSULTING TO THAT JURY...I DON'T RECALL ANY OF THEM SAYING THEY WERE PAID OFF EITHER BY A PRIVATE CONCERT (TALENT) OR CERTIFIED CHECK FROM MJ.(MONEY)

Do you really believe everything you read? Please tell me you're not of voting age....please.

69. 39. I have to seriously agree with number 2 that is probally one of the better posts I have read on any MJ forum.

That said what irk's me the most is the double standard when MJ went to trial all his fans said he is innocent yet with Doctor Murray he is guilty.

Sorry folkas you can;t have it both ways......everyone is innocent till proven guilty.....get over it.

You are very correct about this; for better or worse, that is how the American judicial/court system works. It is designed to errs in favor of the guilty going free rather than the opposite. Not referring to any particular case, mind you.

Hey 87 if a jurys job is to only find people not guilty the prisons sure are full of a lot of not guilty people.. the fact is what your saying is Irreverent.. it would be that way if Dr.Dummy didn't admit to the cops that he actually gave Michael the injections that killed him.. but he did he put his foot in his mouth.. should have just not said anything. but he admited to it..plain and simple..
