Michael Jackson Death Trial AEG Live On the Ropes

0402_michael_jackson-02

It’s pretty shocking … but Katherine Jackson may have taken a giant step today in convincing a jury AEG Live was negligent in protecting Michael Jackson just days before his death.

AEG Live honcho Randy Phillips had trouble explaining to Katherine’s lawyer why he thought MJ “looked really good” 6 days before his death when a photograph clearly showed otherwise.

The photo shows a smiling Jackson but someone who looked gaunt and pale.  On top of that, there is testimony that producer/director Kenny Ortega and others were alarmed over Jackson’s health.

In the days preceding his death, Jackson had missed rehearsals and was sweating profusely.  He also seemed out of it.

As for how Phillips reconciled his statement with other evidence, he said, “I was confused as anybody.”

Here’s the deal.  This case was AEGs to lose.  AEG could have made it simple and just said they assumed MJ was being properly cared for by the doctor MJ hand picked.  But AEG has gotten a little too cute, painting a picture that the jury may not be buying.

Short story … Propofol aside, if the jury believes AEG unreasonably pushed MJ like a circus animal, they could be in beaucoup trouble.
