Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson jurors make excuses to avoid service

Potential jurors in the Michael Jackson wrongful death case have come up with a series of bizarre excuses to avoid having to serve.

Lawyers acting for both Katherine Jackson and the late King of Pop's children Prince, 16, Paris 15, and 11-year-old Blanket - who are suing concert promoters AEG over the alleged negligent hiring and supervision of Dr. Conrad Murray - and their opponents began questioning 104 members of the public in Los Angeles yesterday (15.04.13), eventually whittling the pool down to 87 potential jurors.

Among the possible people who will rule on the case was one woman who said she believed karma, not a civil jury, should decide if negligence caused a death, while another claimed she may have to renew her driving license in July, the New York Daily News newspaper reports.

Neither were rejected from the potential panel for the 90-day trial.

Jurors filled out lengthy questionnaires asking what they'd heard about the alleged drug problem the 'Thriller' star - who died of acute Propofol intoxication in 2009, with Murray later convicted of involuntary manslaughter - and his 2005 trial for child molestation to help the lawyers make their decisions.''

AEG insist the doctor's hiring as Michael's personal physician was the 'Billie Jean' singer's decision, not theirs.
