New Updates On Michael Jackson Trial

Michael_Jackson_Trial_2013Jurors deciding if a concert promoter is liable in Michael Jackson’s death will return for a fourth day of deliberations Wednesday.

The panel of 12 worked nearly 11 hours since closing arguments Thursday without reaching a verdict, a fact that might offer encouragement to the lawyers for Jackson’s mother and three children.

A “no” decision on the first of 16 questions on their verdict form — Did AEG Live hire Dr. Conrad Murray — would have immediately ended the trial without a need to consider the remaining 15 questions that concern negligence and damages.

If they’ve already completed work on the first question in nearly 11 hours of deliberations, it would represent a major hurdle for the Jacksons’ case in the five-month-long wrongful death trial.
