AEG face $40 billion Jackson claim

TMZ reports that Katherine Jackson and the children of Michael Jackson are suing AEG Live for a whopping $40 billion, arguing that AEG Live - promoter of Michael Jackson's ill-fated 'This Is It' show - is liable for the singer's death because it hired and managed Dr Conrad Murray, the medic convicted of causing the late king of pop's death through negligent treatment. Having had some claims removed from the suit, AEG counters that Jackson himself chose Murray and was the doctor's day-to-day manager, and therefore it is not liable for his actions.
