Jury Selection Underway In Michael Jackson’s Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Day two of jury selection begins Wednesday morning in the estate of Michael Jackson’s $40 billion wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoter, AEG.

A lawsuit was filed by Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, against AEG Live claiming that the entertainment giant is responsible for the pop star’s death. AEG was promoting MJ’s highly anticipated comeback tour, “This Is It,” before his death.

Katherine’s legal counsel will argue that AEG was negligent in hiring Dr. Conrad Murray to take care of Michael’s medical needs. Murray prescribed the powerful anesthetic propofol to Jackson, which autopsy results revealed led to the King of Pop’s death. Murray was later convicted of manslaughter in connection with the death of Jackson.

The singer’s family is asking for $40 billion in a trial that could last two to three months.

Potential jurors will complete a 24-page questionnaire to identify any potential bias before sides decide on the final 12 jurors.

In other Conrad Murray news, The doctor had a rather interesting jailhouse interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Tuesday night. During the interview, Murray broke out into song and serenaded Anderson with Nat King Cole’s, “The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot,” a song that Conrad claims characterized his childhood.

Watch the interview below:
