Michael Jackson - Concert Promoters Drop Claim To Collect On Michael Jackson's Death

Promoters behind Michael Jackson's doomed This Is It tour have dropped their $17.5 million (£10.9 million) claim to collect on the King of Pop's insurance policy.
Lloyds of London chiefs sued Aeg bosses after the pop star's death, alleging they failed to disclose important information about the Bad hitmaker's medical history before they signed on as his insurance brokers and offered him a policy, claiming they should not be forced into coughing up the hefty sum.
And on Monday (10Sep12) executives behind the concert firm agreed not to pursue the payout.
A representative for Lloyds of London tells Cnn.com, "In exchange for Aeg withdrawing its insurance claim, underwriters agreed to dismiss Aeg from the case and to waive any costs recoverable from Aeg."
The singer died from a Propofol overdose in 2009.

well, ya...since AEG's bullying tactics contributed to Mr. Jackson's stress level and possibly even to his demise, they should be dropping their case and THANKFUL they are not facing charges. Michael Jackson, forever the King of Pop.
