Charity Concert To Benefit Cystic Fibrosis

AP Jackson-AEG -What-ifs

Panish showed jurors details of a contract that was drafted by AEG Live but only signed by Murray. He said it proved that AEG wanted to control the doctor. AEG Live attorney Marvin Putnam told jurors that Jackson insisted on hiring Murray despite objections from AEG Live. The company told Jackson there were great doctors in London, where his concerts would be held, but the singer insisted, Putnam said. “It was his money and he certainly wasn’t going to take no for an answer,” he said. AEG attorneys showed the jury excerpts from the documentary film about the failed Jackson comeback, This Is It, to demonstrate that Jackson appeared in top form just 12 hours before he died. “AEG Live did not have a crystal ball,” Putnam said. “Dr. Murray and Mr. Jackson fooled everyone. They want to blame AEG for something no one saw.” He contended AEG would have pulled the plug on the concerts had it been aware Jackson was receiving the powerful drug.

Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). CF clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food. In the 1950s, few children with cystic fibrosis lived to attend elementary school. Today, advances in research and medical treatments have further enhanced and extended life for children and adults with CF.
