The Jacksons' losing battle

PLEASE NOTE: THIS EDIT CONTAINS MATERIAL THAT WAS ORIGINALLY 4:3 The family of late pop star Michael Jackson lost its bid for a new trial against the concert promoter AEG Live after it had been cleared of liability in the singer's death. A Los Angeles judge ruled Jackson's mother and children did not have standing for a re-trial after their attorneys argued last month that jury instructions were confusing and not wide enough in scope. A jury cleared AEG, the organizer of Jackson's ill-fated 50 "This Is It" comeback shows in London, of negligently hiring cardiologist Conrad Murray as Jackson's personal physician. Jackson family attorneys could send their appeal to a higher state court. Jackson died in 2009 from an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol administered by Murray. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011.
