AEG not liable in Michael Jackson's death, jury rules

The Los Angeles jury ruled that AEG did retain the services of Dr. Conrad Murray to take care of Michael Jackson, but also ruled that Murray was not unfit as a physician. So the Jackson family — his three children and Michael's mother, Katherine — gets nothing more from AEG. The trial in downtown Los Angeles on the Jackson family's wrongful death lawsuit took five months and the jury deliberated for three days.
