Judge OKs Katherine Jackson to sue AEG
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Wednesday cleared the way for Katherine Jackson to sue the concert promoter behind what was to be her son Michael Jackson's final tour.
The lawsuit alleges breach of contract, fraud, negligent infliction of emotional distress and civil conspiracy.
Katherine Jackson claims AEG Live is responsible for the medical decisions made by Dr. Conrad Murray who is now facing an involuntary manslaughter charge in Jackson's death.
AEG says Jackson hired Murray and then the company conducted negotiations aimed at keeping him as an independent contractor on the tour.
