Katherine Jackson Sues AEG Over Michael's Death

9/15/2010 8:10 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson and Michael Jackson's children are suing AEG Live -- claiming the company breached its agreement to provide physical care for Michael Jackson -- and that AEG was negligent in their hiring of Dr. Conrad Murray as MJ's physician.

In the suit, Katherine claims AEG's contract with Michael "created a legal duty for AEG to act reasonably toward the physical well-being of Michael Jackson."

In the document, Katherine also blames AEG for hiring Dr. Murray without  a proper background check -- claiming, "AEG did not provide a doctor who was truly looking out for Jackson's well-being and did not provide equipment."

The suit also alleges AEG caused emotional distress to Michael's son Prince because he witnessed Michael suffering and dying, and "he was put in a position as bystander to these tragic events."

Kenny Ortega, who produced the planned London concerts for Michael, is also named as a defendant.

The attorney who filed the suit, Brian J. Panish, released a statement saying, "The purpose of this lawsuit is to prove to the world the truth about what happened to Michael Jackson, once and for all."

-Dbaby,
What? You're up this Early waiting for my post? Is it bottle feeding time or what?
No danger, I'm NOT stupid, although I'm sure that's what you think of me and most of the other fans here. I think it just sticks in your craw that you can't twist most of us to your NARROW, Negative way of looking at things....
Sorry, but I was EMANCIPATED a long time ago--you don't GET to tell me what to do anymore......
And I didn't get anything wrong, I just played you on your OWN GAME!!
You and CloBird say you rely on FACTS?? You wouldn't know a fact if it Slapped you in the face. Your only interest is in downgrading Michael and his fans. How many times are you going to pick him apart?
He was raped by the Media, raped by his business Mgrs and agents, raped by his lawyers, raped by some of his family at one point, raped by Sneddon, raped by AEG and now raped by YOU and your kind, masking as fans...
You know good and well that all of that crap about Dr. Adams, Germany and Propofol would be shot down so fast in court it would make your head spin--all 5 of them!!! What you posted is PURE HEARSAY--the VERY thing you claimed to hate so much....except for when it suits YOUR purpose, eh? Talk about an EGOMANIAC!!!!
But one thing you did get right is the fact that you ARE done, in more ways than one.....
....you don't really think I believe THAT, do you?? LOL x 100!!

--#512: Thanks Human Nature! We have to remember that there are people on these boards who don't have Michael's best interests at heart. I've tried to avoid them for the sake of other fans, but I just can't stand by and allow them to pick Michael apart like that...
More importantly, I have noticed the silence of Cooley--DA, and it makes me EXTREMELY SUSPICIOUS. I know that AEG donated to his campaign for office--the receipts were posted a few months back--so I have to wonder if he's in their pocket which means we can't expect much from him. We'll see once the Pre-lim gets underway, but if it starts going in the wrong direction, I'm going to start calling him out!! I haven't exactly dug into him because I've been hoping for the best, but he better get it right, come January!!
Thing is, I trust NOONE when it comes to Michael which is why I'm OVERJOYED that she has filed this suit. And I don't think Joe is behind it, although I think Joe's antics may have made her consider if she was doing enough on her part. She's been able to go to all of the hearings in this case, and see how the DA is handling it. Maybe she wasn't satisfied with what she saw. In any case, I THANK GOD for her efforts and it has given me a peace where Michael is concerned because now I KNOW the TRUTH will come out--good and bad, and it will set him FREE!!!
Again, thanks for your vote of support and inspiring posts!!
-#514: Chico, just a few things--when you referred to people relying on other's research, it reminded me of a previous accusation. I'm not saying you said that against me, but someone did who had been on the Bain board. Thing is, I have no problem admitting that I found a few blogs online that I agreed with and posted some of it, here, but that's no different from people posting news articles and tabloids here to support their theories--it's still someone else's research, including a CNN news program....
As for getting a "well-rounded perspective" from several articles as you put it, I don't see how that's feasible when most of the articles on Michael are clearly TRASH! I can count the legit articles I've seen on him and probably won't make it past 10......
And regarding db and CloBird, I beg to differ, if anything they both seem to only view Michael as a fascinating "specimen", not a gifted MAN.......
As for deifying Michael, I have no reason to defend myself. I worship only One GOD--JESUS!! Michael was simply a vessel God used to bring joy to us, as he, himself has stated. Anyone who thinks otherwise is CRAZY.
You guys get it so wrong. There are some fans who are crazy enough to think that way, but that's them....and they're CRAZY.....but there are many supporters like myself who LOVE Michael and only want the best for him, which includes keeping a POSITIVE outlook on him....coming from a place of "Yes".....
I know he's not perfect, and like you or I, he has skeletons, but do we have to sit here daily and pick it apart? And I understand non-fans doing it, but REAL fans? It's just wrong on so many levels.....
ANd you have to ask yourself WHY do these people want to come on a board about Michael Jackson and dissect his life? Db mentioned that MIchael may have tried to bleach his skin, and oh, btw, mostly BLACK people do that....and this is just one of her/his MANY forays into racial prejudice....are you sure you KNOW who you're identifying with?
There was a danger baby that Bunny, Andie, Brigha, Holmes and a few others chatted with late last year--that db was articulate, forthright, and only interested in the Truth, not in tearing down Michael and his fans. I'm not saying that everything you say HAS to be peaches and cream, but when EVERY post is a negative attack against other fans or Michael, and some of them are racially-tinged, there HAS to be a PROBLEM!!
Bottom line, I don't think this is the same db I spoke to so many months ago. This poster is a person who is inarticulate, rude, RACIST, who has NO DESIRE to find out the TRUTH of what happened to Michael.....but don't take my word for it, it's in all of the posts.....
And you say you get frustrated with fans being stuck in a rigid mind frame, but I'm frustrated, too--with so-called fans who see NOTHING but what the Media and Murray put in front of them--that he "made a mistake" and gave Michael too much Propofol after the Benzos, based on an alibi with enough holes to sink a ship and a timeline that changes every other day........
BTW: You and I had a quick exchange about the effects Sony and the Music Industry had on Michael and while I appreciated your candor, I've begun to see where I may have overlooked them too soon.
Della forwarded this to me, for the record, and I did ASK her if I could post it on these boards--so know that it wasn't found by me. Please read it and let me know what you think. I know the other board is in a state of disaster, but I'm still here first and foremost to get to expose ANYONE who may have been involved in his death.........

You are wrong sofi

Cherwood is NOT all these people

You are a newcomer here and seem to have found a friend in danger baby, BUT any person of intellilgence would look at all information, various facts and perspectives presented and then derive ones own conclusion.

Please stop trying to add fuel to a fire where none is needed.

Oh and by the way, Dr. David Adams NEVER said he gave MJ propofol "repeatedly".


"In a search warrant affidavit, Murray claims between March and April, he arranged for Adams to treat Jackson with Propofol, and was there to witness the procedure.

"My client wasn't in California in June, May, April, or even March," Agwara said. “Murray called him and asked for a meeting."

The attorney would not go into detail about what happened at that meeting in March or even where it was at, but he said that was the one and only time the two doctors have met.

"Why Dr. Murray has chosen to drag my client's name into this, we don't know," Agwara said.

Agwara admitted Adams had given Jackson Propofol before -- on three or four occasions in 2008 -- all for dental procedures.

"Mr. Jackson was in town and needed dental work done," Agwara said. “My client, because he is one of the best, goes and administers Propofol to Michael Jackson. Jackson woke up every one of those times."

Three or four times in not what I would define as "repeatedly".

re: 514.

Thanks,Chico.
I have a background in psychiatry--graduate school and some medical training that I keep up with.I also have been a fan of Michael's since he started his professional career.I know how to carry out research.
I know what you mean.

Cherwood:
I was privately educated all of my life,grammar school,Prep School, University and University Graduate School.At 50,I am still learning--that's a Jungian concept,by the way.I have no need for "dime school" text books since I have a hospital medical library at my disposal.Your ego has been affected by those who disagree with you and have credible evidence to back it up. That is just human nature.I come by my opinions through carefully carried out research.I am also trained, since childhood, on how to tell fact from fiction.Everything that is published whether it be in print or internet,can not be taken for granted as being true.And scientific certainty which is what psychiatry and forensic pathology rely upon,is ever changeable.
I believe that Michael had universal vitiligo,but not as bad as some cases.I also provided two links that describe his conditions of discoid lupus and vitilgo.Michael suffered a lot from mental abuse(teasing from family members about his appearance),physical abuse(he considered those spankings beatings),physical ailments(severe acne,the burn,discoid lupus,vitiligo,possibly systemic lupus,insomnia,addictions and high tolerance to medications),mental anguish(wrongfully accused twice,strip search,trial,violation of privacy,insomnia,financial stress). I also believe that doctors failed Michael Jackson.Rich people can buy any sort of care they choose,whether they need it or not,if they find doctors willing to give them any thing they want.And it is a sad statement that there are many unethical people willing to make a buck by failing to uphold the oath to first do no harm.
If Michael Jackson is to receive justice,credibility matters.That means facts.People who over-emotionally jump to this conclusion and that conclusion based on questionable statements made by equally questionable people are not helping Michael or the Jacksons win justice.What these people are doing is making laughing-stocks of all of Michael's fans because people point to just those who are behaving outrageously.

Good Morning Mimi:

One option to responding to the information I posted would be to thank me for the effort
----------------------------------------------------------


You are joking right?

FYI, I NEVER rely on just what anyone posts. I do my OWN investigating and search for the facts myself. The only time I ever thank anyone is if they are being kind to me or helping me in the search for some info I may have had some trouble locating. And by the way, Dr. Adams is not an anesthesiologist, he is a dentist.

------------------------------------------------------------

db says;

"And for all I know, Sofi may be correct. Bunny, Andie, Cherwood -- they could all be same, since they all showed up in the same forums 'talking' to one another late last night."
---------------------------------------------------------


Well I am telling you that I DO KNOW that these people are NOT one in the same. Just because people talk to one another that is your theory that they are one in the same? Well then I guess we all have been talking to ourselves on here for the past 15 months. Ridiculous...

I really have not been following your posts as the few I have read lately have been quite demeaning to other valued posters. So I cannot attest to whether you have been accused of being someone else. Although I will state that you do not seem to be the same person you once were.

db

I did not attack you. I simply pointed out that you are incorrect in your assumptions of certain posters.

Most everyone on these boards do not seek out "thanks" for providing information. We try to work as a team and are normally very cordial to one another. Why can't you do the same? And yes there are some others who just can't seem to let go of this grudge match that has been going on for way tooo long!

Now I really do not care about Dr. Adams and his area of practice. I do not care whether MJ used propofol on a regular basis. He was human. He had faults just like the rest of us and I do not care to participate in the drudging up of things that no one has any concrete proof or coroberation of. It is all speculation!

Bottom line is that MJ is dead and Conrad Murray administered the propofol to him that morning.

And those my dear db are the facts.

You my dear might want to brush up on your English as you most definitely did not understand any of my posts.

If that is the worst you have been called on here then consider yourself lucky. Most everyone here has been called terrible things and you know what? It did not come from fellow fans but from haterz.

I am not protecting anyone. I am simply trying to get everyone to grow up and stop these childish games. And for you to accuse myself and others of being racists just shows me how immature you actually are.

You believe everyting db posts. You do not or will not even consider that some one else may have a perspective or info worth considering. That's pretty sad.

So you and db just continue with your childish games and before you know it you two will have only yourselves to talk to on here.

Have at it. Knock yourselves out....

_______________________________________________________________

By age 18 or 19 Michael's acne had cleard up. Like many black folks, he went from having an afro to a chemical processed curl, thus changing his look. By the time he filmed his Rock With You video it was apparent that he had a nose job and when he did the Thriller album he looked the same. It wasn't until the release of his Bad album did his skin color lighten. He was perhaps a whole shade lighter (mostly due to makeup), however his nose remained the same plus he added a cleft to his chin. Who knows what went on from this point except for MJ & his doctor(s), because when Dangerous came out he was shockingly 2 to 3 shades lighter. I believe I read somewhere or he may have said it in an interview that makeups were used to cover up blotches. And that things were experimented in order to keep his skin brown, however they did not work so as to even out the blotches prescribed bleaching creams were used that some suffering from vitiligo utilized, but certainly not all. Seeing as he was in the entertainment industry of course this would be the route that he would take. Personally I think one of MJ's biggest mistakes was not letting the public in on his condition so that we could see him changing. It was all just so drastic to us that some feel that for whatever reasons he didn't want to be black, which is stupid. Well then from Dangerous to his History LP he became white as a ghost, yet his nose remained the same. By the time his Invincible album came out it was apparent that he had some more nose work done. Perhaps the nose was never perfect enough for him, however it didn't look to me like he had all the other ridiculous surgeries that so many people are willing to believe. Unfortunately many people were/are willing to believe whatever silly story arises where MJ is concerned because they thought/think him to have been weird or strange, mostly due to the change in his appearance. Yet I believe him to have been a kind person who was terribly misunderstood. I imagine he was probably very interesting/not boring at all, seeing as he had been around and seen a lot of things in his lifetime, was very worldly and could probably tell great stories of his travels. He was philosophical and well read. On top of that everyone that knew him described him as being cool and a good person as well as a great dad who was funny and had a good sense of humor. I refuse to believe he was anything other than that and I'm glad that his family is fighting for justice on his behalf.
