LOS ANGELES (AP) — An attorney who drafted the agreement for Michael Jackson's doctor to work on his ill-fated comeback concerts says she told a tour promoter executive that the physician appeared to be successful.
Kathy Jorrie is an independent attorney who does legal work for AEG Live LLC. She drafted agreements for Conrad Murray to serve as Jackson's doctor on the singer's planned "This Is It" concerts.
Jorrie told a jury on Tuesday that Murray told her he earned more than $1 million a month from his medical practices while negotiating to work on Jackson's "This Is It" shows. Jorrie says she relayed the information to AEG Live's CEO six days before the singer's death.
Jackson's mother is suing AEG Live, claiming it negligently hired Murray.
AEG denies it hired the former cardiologist.
