Michael Jackson - Prosecutors Want Michael Jackson Medical Records Sealed

Prosecutors working on the upcoming manslaughter trial surrounding Michael Jackson's death are seeking to keep reports from the coroner and fire officials sealed until after the case goes to court.
The King of Pop's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, is accused of administering the drug that killed Jackson in June, 2009 and jury selection for the trial is due to begin next week (08Sep11).
Bosses at Jackson's concert promoters, Aeg Live, are in the midst of a civil suit with executives at Lloyd's of London over the insurance policy for the Thriller hitmaker's doomed This Is It shows, for which the singer had been preparing for at the time of his death.
That suit requires the parties involved to look over official records surrounding the cause of Jackson's passing - but prosecutors fear disclosure of the documents could cause key information to be leaked to the media before Murray's trial is complete.
Los Angeles Deputy District Attorneys David Walgren and Deborah Brazil made the request to keep the records private in court papers filed on Wednesday (31Aug11), expressing that the case had already received "significant, unrelenting media attention".
Jackson had been insured by Lloyd's of London for $17.5 million (£10.9 million) for the concert series. Company officials are fighting a pay out, arguing that the singer did not disclose the full list of drugs that he was taking at the time of his death.

Let me try this again. This insurance company is full of it. They know what (allegedly, ha ha) killed MJ, but if their claim is no knowledge of certain drugs in MJ'S system then what exam did they do to write that whoppin policy. I can't believe that Lloyd's of London didn't xray MJ down to his bones and drained all of his blood like vampires. Check,double check, and recheck again. They just don't want to pay up.

Here's an idea. Everybody could pretend that the insurance company paid out, just like they pretend that they paid Jordan out. Lol. In truth, Michael Jackson was a child molesting pedophile. Why should any insurance company suffer financial loss over his chosen lifestyle?Want to discuss this more? Michael Jackson topix forum is the place for you. Boy, will you learn things to make your toes curl..

Lloyd's of London is full of crap! They insured MJ for $17.5 million dollars and we all know when an insurance company insures for that type of money, they do a complete physical wich includes drawing of blood to be tested, IF any drugs were present in MJ's system it would have showed up in the blood test, obviously no drugs were found or they wouldn't have insured MJ. Pay up LOL (Lloyd's of London), it's your obligation!

I agree with you Kimber...anyone who knows anything about life insurance knows you cannot absolutly not get approved without a complete physical, and most certainly what drugs you are taking...blood work. Falsification of these things makes for no insurance. Why are they pulling out such bs right when all this is going down?
