Jermaine Jackson - Conrad Murray's Walking Free - And My Family is Pissed

Written by Linda A..

Michael Jackson's family is suffering its second crushing blow this month -- Conrad Murray is about to be a free man ... and Jermaine Jackson says it's almost too much for them to handle.

Jermaine downplayed his mother, Katherine Jackson's recent loss to AEG in the wrongful death trial, telling us ... "It's not about the money. This guy is walking this month. He's walking free this month!"

Murray is scheduled to be released from jail on October 28, completing his sentence for the involuntary manslaughter of MJ. Murray actually got 4-years, but that was reduced to 2, due to jail overcrowding.

Watch the clip ... Jermaine unloads on our camera guy about what he views as Murray's way-too-brief time behind bars -- adding his family is still hurting.

Why AEG Live Won the Michael Jackson Lawsuit

Written by Linda A..

Michael Jackson's final concert promoter, AEG Live, won't have to pay as much as $1.5 billion to the late superstar's mother and children, a Los Angeles jury ruled Wednesday. The jury found the promoter not liable in the wrongful-death case after a trial that lasted more than five months and made public many disturbing facts about Jackson – from his alleged desperation to obtain powerful sleep medication to AEG's chief executive officer slapping the "despondent" star on his rear-end to psych him up.

In three days of deliberations that foreman Gregg Barden called "extremely stressful," according to the Los Angeles Times, the jury debated the question of whether Jackson or AEG hired Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter after giving Jackson a deadly dose of propofol in June 2009. The jury found that AEG did, in fact, hire Murray, but answered "no" to the next crucial question, which was whether Murray was unfit or incompetent at the time to be Jackson's doctor.

"We didn't really expect the jury to find against us on that question," says Kevin Boyle, one of the Jackson family attorneys, suggesting the jury may have been "confused" about the phrasing of the question. "I don't know if anyone would predict that."

But Shawn Trell, AEG Live's senior vice president and general counsel, argues Jackson's lawyers made contradictory points throughout the trial. "The jury heard what poor condition Michael Jackson was in, how he had deteriorated, he was frail, underweight, he wasn't going to be able to do the 50 shows," he says. "Then when it came to damages, somehow he was going to tour more from age 50 to 66 than he did at any point in his life. The jury could pick up on that. They couldn't have it both ways."

Jurors deliberate to decide Michael Jackson wrongful death case against AEG Live

Written by Linda A..

The jury of six men and six women will decide if concert promoter AEG Live is responsible for the hiring of Dr. Conrad Murray, the cardiologist serving four years for giving Michael Jackson propofol.

After five months of testimony that exposed many secrets of Michael Jackson's personal life, jurors started deliberations Thursday to decide whether concert promoter AEG Live should be held liable for the King of Pop's bizarre overdose death. Michael Jackson

Ten deputies were sworn in to escort the jury of six men and six women around the Los Angeles courthouse during their partial sequestration with catered lunches.

A lawyer for Katherine Jackson had the last word in her billion-dollar wrongful death case earlier Thursday and portrayed AEG as a callous corporation that refuses to accept any responsibility for the alleged negligent hiring of Dr. Conrad Murray.
