LOS ANGELES (AP) — A lawyer for Michael Jackson's family has asked a Los Angeles jury to act as the conscience of the community and award damages for the loss of the pop star's life.
Attorney Brian Panish delivered his closing argument Tuesday in a packed courtroom, explaining why jurors should believe that concert promoter AEG Live LLC was responsible for hiring the doctor whose actions led the star's death.
Panish played videotapes of testimony from the 21-week trial and said it's clear that AEG hired Dr. Conrad Murray, even though the contract with him may have been more oral than written.
He said AEG Live decided to take a risk without investigating Murray's background because they were anxious to launch lucrative concerts.
AEG claims it was Jackson who decided to hire Murray.
