Michael Jackson Fans Sue Conrad Murray - French Michael Jackson fans are looking to get up to $13,000 apiece in a lawsuit from the King of Pop's former doctor, Conrad Murray. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter last year for administering a dangerous drug to Jackson hours before his death.
“It’s similar to losing a childhood friend in a traffic accident. Because this death affects you, you have the possibility to file a suit and seek compensation,” Ludot said.
He said that while each fan could be awarded damages of up to 10,000 euros (13,000 dollars), they were seeking only a symbolic euro.
The star died on June 25, 2009 at his Los Angeles home of an overdose of anaesthetic propofol, taken to help him battle insomnia.
Murray was found guilty in November of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to the maximum four years in prison.
