Michael Jackson's Mother Leads Fight In $40bn 'Wrongful Death' Suit Against Tour Promoters
The family of Michael Jackson will arrive in a courtroom today seeking a staggering $40bn (€30bn) in damages for the singer's death in what would be one of the largest wrongful death settlements in history.
The trial has yet to start but already the fans, the satellite trucks and the cameras have staked out the courthouse in downtown Los Angeles for what promises to be Michael Jackson's last and most melancholy show.
Jackson died four years ago but rival legal teams are preparing to pitch competing versions of his demise in a $40bn lawsuit which will put Jackson's private and public dramas back in the spotlight.
