Lisa Wilson Quoted by in Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Trial

Late last week, Senior Partner, Lisa M. Wilson, was contacted by to share commentary about AEG Live CEO, Paul Gongaware’s testimony that AEG paid Michael Jackson’s doctor.

“Sure, AEG may argue that Gongaware was incorrect and didn’t know all the facts when he wrote this email, but as the Co-CEO of the company, such an argument may not be too persuasive to the jury,” Wilson says.“I say this after learning that it was reported that several jurors laughed when Gongaware, while testifying under oath, repeatedly stated that he ‘didn’t recall’ writing the emails he was being shown. Trust and credibility are key to winning trials and the laughing response by some of the jurors would seem to indicate doubt and mistrust about Gongaware’s testimony.”

To recap, last week AEG Live CEO Paul Gongaware dropped a bombshell in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial. He admitted that he wrote an email indicating that his promotion company was paying for the performer’s doctor. The message, written to a tour director, read, ”We want to remind [Jackson’s doctor Conrad Murray] that it is AEG, not MJ, who is paying his salary. We want to remind him what is expected of him.”
