Katherine Jackson Trims Lawsuit Allegations Against AEG Concert Promoter AEG

Seems Katherine Jackson's attorney doesn't have any evidence to prove many allegations they brought against AEG and will remove the charges before they proceed with  the case against the concert promoter. One interesting  allegation being removed is Prince Jackson was present and suffered trauma and emotional stress.  That has been shown false by Both  Katherine's Attorney and AEG.  So how that was part of the original suite is beyond me.  I believe many of these unfounded claims were originally brought forward by Joe Jackson's attorney Brian Oxman

Katherine Jackson Will Not Proceed With Some Lawsuit Allegations Against Promoter

Attorneys for Michael Jackson's mother say she will not proceed with some of the original allegations in her complaint against the promoter of the London concert series the King of Pop was about to begin when he died, including fraud.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Yvette M. Palazuelos ruled Feb. 2 that lawyers for Katherine Jackson and her grandchildren will have to provide more concrete evidence of fraud, negligent infliction of emotional distress and civil conspiracy, which the lawsuit alleges. She gave them 20 days to amend the complaint.

However, the attorneys filed papers Tuesday stating they ``do not intent to amend the complaint.' That means the case is scheduled to go to trial for now on the remaining allegations of breach of contract, negligent hiring and employer responsibility.

The suit was filed on Sept. 15 by Katherine Jackson on behalf of herself and her son's three children, Michael Jr., Paris-Michael Katherine and Prince Michael, also known as Blanket.

The suit alleges AEG Live is responsible for the medical decisions made by Dr. Conrad Murray, the singer's personal physician at the time, who has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death.

The suit originally alleged Michael Jr. suffered negligent infliction of emotional distress when he ``witnessed his father suffering and accordingly has suffered great trauma and severe emotional distress.'

But according to AEG, the Jackson family lawyers themselves do not allege the boy was present when Murray gave propofol to the singer, nor do they claim the boy was aware the physician was causing any harm to his father.

Palazuelos also said she had doubts about the civil conspiracy claim within the suit because there were no details stating AEG Live and Murray had an agreement to do something unlawful. Katherine Jackson  is also dropping that allegation.
