Michael Jackson Fans Win Lawsuit Against Conrad Murray In French Court
Posted by Joseph Lee on 02.12.2014



BBC reports that a French court has sided with five Michael Jackson fans who said they experienced "emotional damage" after Jackson's death. They were given 1 ($1.36) for winning.

34 fans sued Dr. Conrad Murray, who was put in jail in 2011 for involuntary manslaughter. He served two years of a four-year sentence for giving Jackson a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol and was released in October. An appellate court rejected Murray's attempt to have his conviction overturned.

The court in Orleans ruled that five of the fans had emotional suffering. Two were from France, two were from Switzerland and one was from Belgium. Tehy were all members of the French-based Michael Jackson Community fan club. Their lawyer said they proved the "emotional damage" with "the help of witness statements and medical certificates."

Emmanuel Ludot said: "As far as I know this is the first time in the world that the notion of emotional damage in connection with a pop star has been recognized. They have been subjected to ridicule and I am delighted their suffering has been taken seriously by the law."

He added that the amount was "symbolic" and the five fans would not attempt to claim the money from Murray. The fans said they hoped the ruling would give them the ability to visit Michael Jackson's grave in Los Angeles, which is closed to the public. Jackson died on June 25, 2009. He had been preparing for a series of comeback shows at the O2 arena in London.
