Wrongful Death Suit by Michael Jackson Family Under Way

Argue Conrad Murray never should've been hired by concert organizers


A lawyer for Michael Jackson's family seemed satisfied as he left the Los Angeles courthouse after the first week of the pop star's wrongful death trial.

"There's a long way to go and we hope the evidence supports—and we believe it does—that Dr. (Conrad) Murray was unfit for the job he was hired to do," attorney Brian Panish said. "He was financially motivated and was in serious financial straits."
