Michael Jackson’s Family Blames AEG Live For Death
As the Michael Jackson civil trial gets underway, the Jackson family is turning their attention to concert promoter AEG Live. The Jackson family claims that AEG knew about Michael’s condition and his poor health when they green lit his final concert tour. Law experts for Today said that this case is prejudicial and will not win. They asked the question, if the family knew Michael was ill why did they let him go through with the deal?
Jackson’s mother was in the trial throughout and left only when the court delved into Michael’s final days. They described him as frail, pale and obviously unwell. The trial continues today.
Five-Month-Old Baby Sammy Taken From Parents By Sutter Memorial Hospital
Anna and Alex Nikolayev took their five-month-old baby Sammy to Sutter Memorial Hospital to treat his heart murmur. Anna wanted to get a second opinion but the hospital said that the baby was to stay there. She took her son to another doctor at another hospital and was then cleared to go home.
A few days later, authorities came and took Sammy from his parents. Anna captured the event on tape and said that she had no idea what was happening. They just swooped in and took her son.
Attorneys said that this is a violation of the fourth and fourteenth amendments. No doctor or hospital has the right to over rule the family, they said. However, the hospital came back and said that if there was sufficient reason to suspect the child could be physically harmed then authorities could sieze the child.
The court came back and gave Sammy to his family. Sammy is now in treatment at Lucille Packard Memorial Hospital. They have another court date set for May 28, but in the meantime they must allow Child Protective Services to have routine check-ins once Sammy is out of the hospital.
