    Autumn Thome Thome was added to the witness lately, after we were all wondering why he was not on it. Now whether he is actually called is another question.

    Aquarius yes they can appeal. This just happened last week to someone I know. After he won the suit & the jury awarded him the money, the insurance company said they would appeal but then changed their mind & contacted his attorney and asked to settle for less than the jury awarded him or else they would go for an appeal. They negotiated and settled for 30,000 less, because the guy was tired going to court & his attorney felt they might get less money with a new judge & trial. I wonder if the family is considering that AEG might appeal, but I have a feeling that the family will appeal if they lose, because they added some appeal lawyers to their team lately.

    ^^Thanks Petra.

    I hope if AEG doesn't win they go for an appeal, hope they never settle.
    The Jacksons really have money to add more attorneys to their pool, hope they all drown.

    Well when the next accounting comes along we will see if she is asking again for a lump sum of money to pay off attorneys. Somehow I do not think she is paying for them from her allowance.

    What if you hire someone to take care of your friend and to make sure that he is in good shape and fit to make the business work. Then you realize your friend is not performing as you want him to and you start pressuring the person you hired to fulfill their duty. So THAT person is pressured to ensure your friends performance and might give him some drug so he stays on top of things.

    If you know now that your friend has problems and the person you hired is responsible, aren't you liable if you do nothing about it???
    But that's the point--Kenny Ortega's email, the meeting at MJ's house, the statement by MJ that he is fine, the statement by Murray to Ortega--stop playing doctor. It's not true they did nothing about it ('it' meaning MJ showing up to rehearsal ill, confused, chilled). They addressed it in the meeting. I don't think myself that enough was done b/c I think Ortega's email indicated something was very wrong, but he was the only one who witnessed MJ being sick--he was very concerned, but everyone else told him to stop worrying, meaning MJ, Murray, Phillips, etc. Then MJ came back to rehearsals and did great, so that reassured them.

    And about only being liable if you knew the doctor was giving him a dangerous drug... Isn't that what the Jacksons also want to establish? That certain people knew something was wrong, but did nothing? E.g. if someone would tell me that one half of someones body feels hot while the other is cold my alarm bells would definitely ring that something is seriously wrong.

    I mean, we will see what the trial brings, but in general I can see why AEG could possibly be held responsible for Michael's death.
    AEG didn't know about this--MJ called the nurse in Florida--thr one who had been treating him for insomnia with natural products, herbal teas, etc, earlier--Cherylynn Lee--and told her about the hot and cold--not AEG. She told him to go to the emergency room, but he didn't.

    Alan Duke has an article on CNN (not sure if it has now become a tabloid or not) and in it he says this accountant (Erk) is saying MJ would have earned over one billion on the TII tour and that he would have done 260 shows--is this guy mad??? There is no way if MJ was not happy with 50 shows he would have done--260--OMG!

    Can anyone believe this--what if the jury doesn't know anything about MJ?? What if they believe this crap? And KJ's lawyers are also saying that MJ would have toured into his 70's!! OMG!!! And apparently the judge (I know I am not supposed to use derogatory names, but she is sounding more and more like someone with a serious inability to put 2 and 2 together--but maybe she doesn't know anything about MJ either) anyway, she supposedly volunteered that the Rolling Stones are still touring--so it sounds like she agrees MJ could have kept touring? This is getting like science fiction.

    Well since AEG is involved, no doubt they will try to bring in some evidence that shows otherwise. They will try to show he would not make a lot of money, would not tour again, & there were several projects that Michael said he would do & did not. We will see which side the jury believes, but first they have to prove negligent hiring.
