Sept 28, 2013 – “Michael Jackson Killed Himself” – AEG Live Lawyer Argues Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Michael Jackson was responsible for his own death, Maryin Putnam, a lawyer for AEG Live said.

Putnam remarked in a closing arguments of the wrongful death lawsuit brought by relatives of the late King of Pop.

Jackson’s family blame the concert promoter for his June 2009 death on the eve of his sold-out comeback tour, claiming the company hired Jackson’s doctor and pressured him to bend medical rules in order to ensure the tour would go ahead.

But in his closing arguments, Putnam denied that the company had hired Dr. Conrad Murray, pointing out that he had been treating Jackson and his family for years before the tour.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Murray was found guilty of providing the insomniac Jackson with the surgical anesthetic Propofil as a sleeping aid, which a coroner found had caused Jackson’s death.

“The evidence is very clear that Michael Jackson was the one who hired Dr. Murray.

”Jackson was responsible for his own health, certainly his own healthcare, and he’s responsible for his own choices, no matter how bad those choices turn out to be.

“The truth here is a tragedy … It’s a tragedy for this family, a tragedy for his mother, a tragedy for his kids. It’s horrible and it’s incredibly sad. But it’s not a tragedy of AEG Live’s making,” Putnam said.

The lawyer insisted that Jackson never told AEG Live about his reliance on the dangerous medication.

“AEG would have never agreed to finance this tour if they knew Mr. Jackson was playing Russian roulette in his bedroom every night,” Putnam told jurors.

During the five-month trial, AEG Live argued that it was Jackson who hired Murray.

Murray is due to be released next month after serving two years in prison following his conviction for the involuntary manslaughter of the late pop star.
