A jury of six men and six women today (Oct. 2) found that concert promoter AEG Live is not liable in the wrongful death case regarding pop superstar Michael Jackson.

The decision came after five months of testimony and three days of deliberations, when the jury was asked to decide if AEG was at all culpable for Jackson’s death from an overdose of the hospital anesthetic Propofol in 2009.
