Michael Jackson Family Want $40 Billion From Suit

The Michael Jackson wrongful death suit, kicked into action by the late singer’s family, has taken a new twist. It now appears as though his 3 children and mum Katherine are looking for $40 billion from AEG live.

Katherine and her grandchildren from Michael sued AEG Live for millions of dollars, accusing the company of negligently hiring Dr. Conrad Murray - who was convicted for involuntary manslaughter - and failing to properly supervise him during his duty of caring for the singer ahead of his "This Is It" concert series. MJ died from an anesthetic overdose before the gigs were calledoff. The sprogs want $10 billion for all of the future earnings they claim MJ would have scored had he lived, and an additional $50 million for various other damage. AEG, of course, claim this figure is ridiculous, saying that MJ’s career was in on the decline after child abuse accusations, and from him living in the middle east. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos ruled that attorneys for AEG Live could use Jackson's molestation trial as part of their defense in the testimony as it may be relevant to the pop star's battle with drug abuse.

Many thought the drama following the death of MJ would cease after Murray was convicted, but instead, the intensity has risen exponentially. This latest court case is set to run and run until someone gets accused of doing something else.

The Jackson will never get this kind of money from AEG. Nobody will pay them 40 billon, come on Katherine. Why 40 billion?

Really..... Why not make it $77billion to keep in line with the charade posturing over the last twenty plus years! For those who can't decipher the bs from anything near to the truth I suppose this will do little else than throw more backlash at the "greedy" family from blind fans. I'd guess he likes to see just how easy it is for his 'love army' to turn sour against the people that really matter to him because they can't distinguish fact from fiction. From things I've read from supposedly 'legitimate' fans, I wouldn't want them as my cat's fans! Some comments are absolutely disgraceful, some 'army of love'.... They should try practising what they preach

I have been trying to find a photo of this Judge Yvette Palazuelos and not one photo can be found. I want to see what this person looks like who will allow the likes of AEG to go back into that fake molestation trial and use things as they see fit. If MJ was found to have been guilty of those charges I could see that but not only was he found innocent of those bogus charges, but they are trying to say because of those heavy charges that MJ was dealing with he took drugs to get through that trial so that means by some miracle what he did in 2005 mean't he was still doing the same thing in 2009. Well if this is their argument then that means they knew of MJ's issues and they went forward with the rehearsals and would have open those 50 concerts dates of This Is It regardless of their star's health or condition. Now they are trying to force this same judge to allow Blanket to be deposed, WHY? If he's 10 now 11 tops then he was only 6 or 7 when MJ died. I don't think he would know what happened other than his dad was dead! These people at AEG are a real piece of work and they didn't give a damn about MJ only that he could make money for them and that is THE REAL DEAL!!
