Katherine Jackson, the mother of pop music star Michael Jackson, who passed away under unclear circumstances in June 2009, has filed papers initiating a wrongful death lawsuit against concert promoter AEG. The company was responsible for planning the “This Is It” concert tour for which Michael Jackson was preparing in the weeks before his death. Katherine Jackson’s suit alleges that the company was indirectly responsible for Michael Jackson’s death. The most damning contention in the suit is that AEG staff was responsible for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician who dispensed the prescription drugs believed to have caused Jackson’s death. The suit also claimed that AEG failed to provide adequate emergency response equipment and safety procedures. Several specific AEG employees and officers are also named in the suit.
