    After finding out that the Jurors wouldn't have even passed question 3, it's like why are we still arguing over this then? AEG would have won regardless! =/

    Neither side is right or wrong; it is simply their view. For the jurors, it is a shared view or shared decision that we are free to agree or disagree with in this subforum.
    Well obviously it's a "shared" view for jurors; there couldn't be a verdict otherwise. We can all agree or disagree with pretty much everything in life so I'm not sure what point you're making here to be honest.

    Bottom line....when it comes to a trial, the only opinion that matters IS that of the Triers of Fact.

    (But for the record, I do think they saw things very clearly and got it right.)

    I find it distasteful, too.

    I might have believed that Katherine was on a real quest for justice had she gone for the criminal restitution but when she declined it, it was clear to me it was just about the never-ending quest for $$$. Cynically, I also don't think it's over either.

    I totally believe RP was completely exaggerating, but I still wish one of MJ's big hefty bodyguards had been around and slapped him back, especially if he put his hands on MJ in a truly vicious manner. The ONLY good thing about this suit was that it put him and AEG on the hot seat, and they've got some major legal bills.

    To me it was plain old extortion attempt from Jackson's side. First they allowed CM free to profit from his crime, then they offered twice to settle the case.

    Kevin Boyle, an attorney for Jackson’s mother and three children, said the family made the offers in January and March.
    Boyle would not provide details but said AEG’s insurance would have paid, “which means they could have settled the case without them paying a dime of their money.”
    Full article here:http://articles.latimes.com/2013/may...trial-20130521


    Does that scream real justice? KJ says she wanted to know what happen to MJ, but if AEG had agreed with their extortion attempt, there wouldn't have been uncovering who hired CM and and fiinding out what happened to MJ. For right amount of money those issues wouldn't have mattered. To family justice means $$$$$$$

    I don't think that slap was vicious. I think he is kind of type that do a bit of boasting and exaggerating to color his stories.
    I don't know whether its a good thing hat they got some major legal bills as they can go to judge with their bills and ask plaintiffs to pay them. Randy is not going to pay them for sure, so it is either Panish's company or KJ, and we know what happen if KJ has to pay those.

Just on the face of it, he had the required licenses and he lacked malpractice suits, etc. The only complaint in his file was that he did not return a call when he was supposed to. He was licensed in 4 states. So at the time he was hired, he passed the fit and competent criteria. Later, he showed himself to be unfit and incompetent, but that was not until MJ was already dead, and after an investigation and a trial that documented all the ways he failed to adhere to the standard of care, including not calling 911 right away. At the time of the 19th of June, MJ could have had the flu, mental issues due to stress, etc. There was no way to decisively "know" it was nightly injections of propofol, or anything else CM did, that were the cause.

    People who think the fact that MJ was called 'the freak" in an email he never saw, or that RP wrote in an email he 'slapped him" and 'yelled at him so hard the walls shook" is enough to find for negligent hiring and supervision are not grounded in reality b/c yelling, slapping, name-calling does not kill anyone and is not an indication that you are going to kill anyone. Also, to me it's clear RP was in a stressed state at the time he made these remarks and was exaggerating--does anyone really believe the 'walls shook"???

    Then there is Panish saying AEG didn't care about MJ and they only wanted him for the money he would bring--yes, it's called capitalism and that's the system we're operating under. If you buy something in the marketplace, the maker of the product does not 'care' about you. Caring is not part of capitalism. That's not how it works--it was a huge struggle for Ralph Nader to get seatbelts and airbags installed in cars as standard safety features. Companies resist making changes that cost them $$ even when public safety is at stake and there are many instances of this (unfortunately). AEG didn't have to care but they had to not be negligent.

    I was impressed with that foreman and the jury. In order to have liability you have to prove negligence and the evidence to show that AEG knew what depths of incompetence CM could sink to at the time they hired him or even at the end, was just not there.

    edit: And just as AEG could not forsee the depths CM would sink to in terms of incompetence, neither could MJ. I am sure he never thought that CM would abandon him, that he wouldn't call 911, that he didn't know the basics of resuscitation.
    Many thanks, Jamba, You wrote all this what I would write if my english would be better!

    It is increasingly alarming to me how many people seem to be losing the ability to analyze facts critically. It’s scary how any illogical theory or conspiracy theory can be thrown up and people will believe it without paying any attention to the facts. Randy and the Jackson's have done a good job of messing with the minds of MJ's fans.

    I hadn't thought about them actually asking KJ's side to pay. Wow...one travesty after another with this thing if that happens. But I think Randy Phillips is a little punk, and as much as I know he wanted MJ to pull it together for the shows, I believe he was like many others, and got an ego boost seeing the mighty Michael Jackson in a distressed state. Even distressed, MJ was a better man than all the AEG execs combined. That's probably why he exaggerated as much as he did, because a part of him knew that, too.

    I couldn't agree more with the bolded. It's practically an epidemic as far as I'm concerned.

    I was on this jury, and of all the places I've seen where this is being talked about, this community seems by far to be the most level-headed and approachable. So many passionate MJ fans rationally discussing the verdict rather than lashing out in anger is very nice to see, and makes me think this is probably the best place for me to make a small statement.

    Initially I planned to avoid and ignore all the comments about the verdict after the trial ended. Because as soon as we answered 'no' to question 2 in the jury room, I knew how it would be reported and misunderstood ("DURR STUPID JURY HOW CAN CONRAD MURRAY BE FIT AND COMPETENT WHEN HE IS IN JAIL FOR KILLING MJ??? DURRR"). And sure enough, the very first question asked by the media when we got outside was "How could you find Conrad Murray competent?" And of course a bunch of hardcore MJ supporters outside were yelling, calling us stupid and confused, etc. So I figured rather than getting annoyed at misinformation being spread or seeing us called morons ad nauseam, it'd be better to just ignore it all.

    Well that lasted about a day before my curiosity got the better of me, and I had to peek around to see what people were saying. I had to see if that version of us as idiots was the main narrative going on. Thankfully most people commenting on the verdict are actually looking at what we were instructed to consider, and agree with our decision. We knew from day 1 that no matter the outcome we would have people agreeing and disagreeing with the verdict, and I'm thankful that this jury did not concern itself with what people would say or think about us and decided to follow the instructions and base our verdict on the evidence in the case.

    Just like our jury foreman, I went into this trial about as neutral as one could be towards Michael Jackson. I was 7 when Thriller came out so I grew up with his music and loved it, but I knew very little about his life other than what I'd seen in the media, and I honestly had no strong feelings about him as a person either way. I walk out of this trial completely understanding why he has so many fans who practically deify him. Who are so strongly attracted to his kind spirit, huge heart, gentle nature, love of his children and mother, etc. I totally get it now.

    Every single witness who was questioned about whether they thought MJ was a good father (and almost every one who knew him closely was asked) sang endless praises about his love of his kids. If Prince's testimony is any indication, MJ was definitely a great father. The kid is bright, intelligent, caring, has great character and a great personality, and I truly believe MJ did a phenomenal job raising him in the few years he was able to. Honestly, every single juror came away feeling very positive about Michael Jackson as a person and father.

    I know there was concern about MJ's image being hurt because of this trial, and maybe to outside viewers it was because of some of the details that came out. But for us in the jury in that courtroom for all these months, we just grew more and more fond of him during the course of the trial.

    I'd like to say thank you to all the people I've seen here supporting us jurors in our decision, it really means a lot. I will be happy to answer anything I can about the trial if you'd like to ask and if I am able.

    I'm so pleased the juror came here to make their statement, it is very much appreciated. Whilst I personally believe that they brought the right verdict I hope they understand that although others do disagree it is actually only a small percentage who resort to name calling.

    And also thank you for your lovely words about Michael, these are things we know already but they are often ignored by the media and so it's nice that when someone actually has an opportunity to see, really see Michael that you can come away with such lovely sentiments.
