Conrad Murray who administered a fatal dose of propofol to Michael in June 2009. Closing arguments in the five-month trial are scheduled to begin Tuesday. By Nancy Dillon / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Friday, September 20, 2013, 5:18 PM Comment Ethan Miller/Getty Images for Cirque du Soleil Katherine Jackson, pictured here with Prince Jackson, sued AEG Live for damages above $1 billion, alleging the concert promoter hired Dr. Conrad Murray, who gave Michael Jackson a lethal dose of propofol. Katherine Jackson rested her months-long, megabucks wrongful death case against concert promoter AEG Live Friday after dropping a bid to show jurors never-before-seen "This Is It" rehearsal footage. Katherine's lawyers originally wanted to cap the trial that began in April with select outtakes of the King of Pop appearing "slow" and needing help up a ramp in the days before his death, but they backed down when AEG lawyers countered with a request that jurors see all the raw footage from the final rehearsals. Joel Ryan/AP Jackson had planned a series of comeback concerts, but died before the shows in London began. "We just weighed the options of what (AEG lawyers) were going to do in response and how that would delay the close of the trial," Kevin Boyle told the Daily News, explaining the reversal.

Christus answers wrongful death suit
The parasite, found in warm freshwater and soil, causes a rare but severe brain infection that is nearly always fatal. The suit alleges that after Annie died, the city of Stillwater, Washington County and the Minnesota Department of Health should have issued warnings of the amoebas apparent presence in the lake and its potential for harm. Shallow water on the beach created an artificial hot zone where amoeba assumed a deadly, pathogenic form, Strassburg said in the Sept. 13 hearing in Washington County District Court. There were no public warnings. The suit claims that excessive stormwater runoff from residences and streets surrounding Lily Lake, in the heart of Stillwater, warmed the water to an extent that the amoeba could thrive. Jennifer Coates, an assistant attorney general representing the Health Department, said she didnt understand why the state would have responsibility for stormwater runoff in Stillwater. It naturally happens when it rains next to a lake anywhere in the world, Coates told District Judge Susan Miles. Theres no question the amoeba caused Jacks death, said Pierre Regnier, the attorney representing Stillwater. It was not only hidden to Jack, to the adults who were supervising him, it was hidden to everybody in the world, Regnier said.
