    Katherine's side wants to use AEG expert witness for their side? Is that normal and why would they do such a thing?
    Can AEG cross list Katherine's side experts?

    The bolded part, did you forget to add something, I think there was supposed to be more of it? What Ackerman says, or do I read you post wrong again

    well everyone can ask questions to the other sides experts. The difference here is that Katherine wants to list AEG's expert as an expert for themselves in another area. I don't know if it's doable or not. We will see when the judge rules.

    You are right I left my sentence unfinished but I wrote what I wanted to say at the end which is "Ackerman responds the question calls for a legal conclusion and he's not qualified to answer that question." In other words Ackerman states he cannot determine whether it (what that is) is fraud or not.

    1. Late produced documents:

    In April 2011 AEG had asked for documents from Katherine about Michael's relationship with Katherine and his kids. Katherine objected and refused to produce any documents. April 2012 before AEG filed a motion to compel Katherine, they have provided 140 pages to AEG. AEG kept asking Katherine to give them the rest - final requests being at February and March 2013.
    How odd, with $40billion at stake i would have thought the entire family would be immediately rummaging around attics, drawers, storage lockers, garages, for anything to help the case. I suppose we'll see at trial, but it seems all a bit unprofessional from the jackson side with all those late witnesses etc.

    And i'm the biggest hypocrite as i freely admit i'd love to see that video of mj giving ppb the puppy at xmas. Sad to say that this intrusion into a family's privacy, cd provide welcome relief from the drugs, drugs, drugs, child molestation trial, drugs, drugs intrusions into mj's life during this trial.

    I also would like to see anything positive about MJ on videos especially reacting with his children.

    I noticed the Jackson's have all family members listed but not Latoya Don't you wonder why the Jacksons don't want her on their list? AEG has latoya on their witness list. That is going to be very interesting. She has told so many different crazy stories with no proof or source to back them up .. but She won't be able to play her little giggle and wiggle past the questions game on the stand, as she does in all her interviews.

    The biggest highlight for me is hearing the family responses on cross-examination, especially Katherine if she takes the stand.

    Michael Jackson-AEG wrongful death trial opens Monday

    Michael Jackson in a scene from the movie "This Is It." (Kevin Mazur / Kevin Mazur / May 28, 2009)
    By Jeff Gottlieb
    April 23, 2013, 5:17 p.m.
    What’s likely to be a dramatic tour through Michael Jackson’s final days begins Monday when attorneys make opening statements in a wrongful death trial that could last deep into the summer.

    Six alternates were selected Tuesday, joining a dozen jurors who were seated the previous day. The alternates would replace any juror who can’t continue or is removed from the panel.

    Jackson’s mother and children are suing Los Angeles entertainment giant AEG, alleging it is liable for Jackson’s death because it hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, who used a powerful surgical anesthetic in an effort to help the singer cope with insomnia. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011.

    The case is likely to veer into the sensational, pitting Jackson’s towering legacy against a business enterprise that has had a profound influence on the entertainment scene, particularly in Los Angeles.

    Though the trial will zero in on whether the singer or AEG is responsible for hiring Murray, testimony will likely touch on the singer’s death, his feeble physical state as his much-anticipated comeback concert series approached and his eccentricities.

    In court papers, Jackson’s family has described AEG as a heartless, money-driven machine that pushed Jackson to prepare for a tour that he was not physically capable of pulling off.

    AEG says it in no way controlled the singer and that bringing Murray aboard as Jackson’s personal physician was Jackson’s choice. The company, in court papers, said it recommended hiring a British doctor.

    Jackson’s “This Is It” comeback concerts were to have debuted in London in 2009.

    The singer died two weeks before the tour was to launch. AEG was the promoter of 50 concerts Jackson was scheduled to give in London.

    On Tuesday, after both sides agreed to the alternates, the remaining members of the jury pool let out a cheer, knowing they would not spend the next four months in a courtroom.

    "You can get go on with your lives," Superior Court Judge Yvette M. Palazuelos said.

    Perhaps the oddest moment of the jury picking occurred Tuesday when AEG attorney Marvin Putnam said he would not stipulate that Michael Jackson was dead.

    That does not sound odd to me. Putnam is right not to stipulate that, because then Katherine's side would have to show how Michael died & Putnam can cross-examine to show how it was Muarry who acting alone was negligent. He could then show that Muarry's recklessness was not foreseeable, which is what AEG has been saying all along.

    It can mean to need something, to detail something, or accept something.

    It is difficult to say what the defendant’s lawyer is trying to say without the statements he made before and after this one. On its own, it sounds foolish and stubborn.

    ^^In court when you stipulate something then there is no need to explain it. For example, an expert takes the stand and the lawyer is supposed to question him to show what makes him an expert. The lawyer for the other side, can say he stipulates to the fact that this man is an expert in that particular field. The lawyer may do so to save time, if he knows about the guys expertise, or if he has no questions to ask the person about his expertise that would be of value to his side.

    By Putnam not stipulating that Michael is dead, the family side will then have to bring in information showing what happened to Michael & how he died. This will then allow the AEG side to ask questions of the family witnesses that would help their case. Remember the more a person says on the stand, is the more information the cross-examining lawyer has to drill them & get the truth out, or confuse them, or show up their lies. Putnam is going to show that it was Muarry acting alone & Michael who caused Michael death, so this is a crucial area where he cannot stipulate the death.

    If he stipulates that Michael died, then it limits his ability to cross-examine about the death & the circumstances around it.

    How bizarre! It's a wrongful death suit, there was a dead body, there was a manslaughter trial. What are they expecting the jackson lawyers to do - take the jury out to forest lawn to inspect the crypt or pore over more autopsy photos? It's one thing to not stipulate the cause of death but to not agree to stipulate that mj is actually dead is just weird. Maybe the reporter got the wrong end of the stick. Or maybe the aeg lawyers are just assholes.

    Bonnie Blue, agreed.

    Again, it is difficult to understand this statement without context. However, based on the defendant’s verdict form, they have attempted to distance themselves from the doctor’s proven negligence as a cause of death. They have placed negligence on Michael and his mother.

    Referring to the doctor’s proven negligence may implicate them as negligent if it is proven they did indeed hire the negligent doctor.
