Michael Jackson - Aeg Live Bosses Dismissed From Michael Jackson Trial

Two AEG Live executives have been dismissed from the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial after the judge overseeing the case ruled there was not enough evidence to suggest they had negligently hired convicted doctor Conrad Murray as the King of Pop's physician.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos excused Randy Phillips and Paul Gongaware from the trial, which has now been running for four moths.

But that doesn't mean Katherine Jackson's case against AEG Live has been dropped - her attorneys still insist the company bosses hired Murray, who is currently behind bars after he was convicted of administering the fatal dose of anaesthetic propofol which claimed the Thriller star's life in 2009, as he was preparing for a series of comeback concerts in London.

AEG Live executives maintain Jackson had prescription drug and addiction problems, and that they're not to blame for the King of Pop's demise.

Both Phillips and Gongaware denied any wrongdoing during testimony in the trial.
