AEG closing arguments: Michael Jackson wrongful death trial

Bill Robles covered the closing arguments of the AEG lawyer during the Jackson wrongful death lawsuit trial. The trial  lasted five months and now the jury is left to decide who was at fault in the death of Michael Jackson.
A jury will weigh whether AEG negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, who gave Michael 
Jackson a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol on the eve of what was to be the singer's comeback tour.

The attorney for AEG Live told jurors Wednesday the concert promoter never hired the doctor who was treating Michael Jackson as he prepared for a comeback tour, never had a contract with him and had no idea the doctor was giving the singer the powerful anesthetic that killed him.
"Plaintiffs want you to hold a concert promoter liable for Michael Jackson’s overdose, in his bedroom, at night, behind locked doors,” Marvin Putnam said during his closing argument in the five-month wrongful death case.,0,1568360.story
