Jackson Family Attorneys Play Video Montage of Michael at Wrongful Death Trial

by for Michael Jackson‘s family presented closing arguments Tuesday at the pop star’s wrongful death trial in Los Angeles. 

The attorneys played a long video montage of Michael’s performances over many years, in an attempt to convince jurors that concert promoter AEG Live is responsible for Michael’s death.

Michael’s mother, Katherine Jackson, is suing AEG Live, the concert promoter behind his aborted This Is It tour.  She claims AEG contributed to her son’s death by hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Michael’s June 2009 death for giving Michael an overdose of the powerful anesthetic propofol.

The defense for AEG will present its closing arguments Wednesday. A rebuttal from Michael’s attorneys will follow on Thursday.
