After three days of deliberations, the 12-person jury in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial has ruled that executives of concert promoter AEG Live can Beat It.
While the jury ruled that the concert promoter did hire Dr. Conrad Murray to care for Jackson during his planned 50 show London concert residency in 2009, they also ruled that he wasn't "Dangerous".
Jackson's mother Katherine filed the suit on September 15, 2010, claiming that AEG Live were Bad when they hired Dr. Murray, who is currently serving time in prison on manslaughter charges for Blood on the Dance Floor.
Mrs. Jackson filed the lawsuit, naming Michael's three children, Prince, Paris and Prince Michael II (aka 'Blanket') as co-plaintiffs, and was seeking $40 billion in damages, and was not going to Stop Until She Got Enough.
Last month AEG executives Randy Phillips and Paul Gongaware were dismissed from the case after the judge determined that they hadn't Wanna Be Startin' Something.
During the trial, AEG execs maintained that Jackson was the Man in the Mirror for hiring Dr. Murray, who is set to be released from prison later this month after serving two years of his four year sentence.
