Jackson Family

Going After Dr. Murray's Money

... IS POINTLESS!!!

1/18/2012 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Prosecutors will no longer seek more than $100 million in restitution from Dr. Conrad Murray at the request of Michael Jackson's family, because as the proverb goes ....you can't squeeze blood from a turnip.

A rep for the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office says prosecutors were informed that the Jackson family is giving up on restitution ... so the D.A. withdrew the request.  As a result, the restitution hearing scheduled for Monday has been called off.

Murray -- who's serving a 4 year jail sentence for his role in the death of MJ -- is basically broke ... and now that his medical license has been revoked, it's unclear how he plans to earn money once he's released.

It seems the Jackson family finally decided it wasn't worth the time or the energy to battle for scraps.

Nothing but gibberish.

So true, even if she translate that back to German!

And she called it poetry? What happened? Is poetry a string of nice words of positive adjectives and nouns?

I think the problem is that the money was for damages suffered because MJ would not be able to earn a potential amount based on "This Is It." Since Michael Jackson's estate immediately began making a lot more money after his death, it would be awkward and difficult to argue that they suffered a financial loss. The money was not for punitive damages, pain and suffering, or other claims. Still, Conrad Murray has lost his career and he will live with his actions for the rest of his life.

How funny it is on the board of Randy's while everybody is trashing the jacksins, phantom is there spinning her videos. I really think that thing phantom is a computer program or an android who has no feelings, put spitting out those video links whenever it is programmed, tricked, or certain word(s) hits its button.

Which makes their pay to 92,000 Dollars a year and having all Government employee benefitts on top and Tax breaks. In the mean time we got a new Tax assesement for all our homes in Allegheny county! Read up on it!!!!!!!! And its not just Pittsburgh, its everywhere like that.

We need to make the world safe for creativity and intuition, for it’s creativity and intuition that will make the world safe for us.

Why should we all use our creative power….? Because there is nothing that makes people so generous, joyful, lively, bold and compassionate, so indifferent to fighting and the accumulation of objects and money.
