Michael Jackson's Mother Sues Concert Promoter

Katherine Jackson has sued AEG Live, the company responsible for promoting what were to be her late son’s series of comeback concerts. Jackson is looking for unspecified damages, accusing AEG with failing to both provide life-saving equipment and oversee Jackson's doctor Conrad Murray (who has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death). The suit states: "AEG's representations to Jackson were false because in reality AEG was merely doing whatever it took to make sure that Michael Jackson could make it to rehearsals and shows and AEG did not provide a doctor who was truly looking out for Jackson's well-being and did not provide equipment." AEG said it has not seen the lawsuit and had no immediate comment. [AP]
