No Cameras Allowed In Jackson”™s Trial
Posted by Helya Askari on Apr 6, 2013 - 7:32:18 PM

LOS ANGELES—On Friday, April 5, Judge Yvette Palazuelos ordered there to be no cameras allowed in the courtroom during the duration of the wrongful death lawsuit of Michael Jackson. The lawsuit is posed by Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, and his three children Prince, Paris and Blanket, against, AEG Live, the company that organized Jackson’s “This Is It” concert tour in 2009.  


The Jacksons’ attorneys claim that since Dr. Conrad Murray, who will be serving time in prison for the negligence that lead to Jackson’s death was hired by AEG Live, the company is therefore liable for his death. The Jackson family is pursuing a multibillion-dollar lawsuit, that they allege Jackson would have earned had he remained alive.

 Although the Jacksons’ lawyers wanted to have cameras present during the trial to show the details of the case, AEG’s attorneys asserted that the press coverage would only create a chaotic environment. 

Judge Palazuelos did not indicate the reasons behind her decision.


On Friday ,April 6, the jury pool reached 60 possible candidates after each potential juror completed a 24-page questionnaire that was used to distinguish each candidates eligibility. The final jurors are expected to be selected by April 17. The trial will most likely last anywhere from two to three months.

Paris, Prince and Katherine Jackson are expected to serve as witnesses.
