Jury Selected in Michael Jackson’s $40 Billion Wrongful Death Lawsuit

After a month long selection process, the jury pool is finally complete in Michael Jackson's upcoming wrongful death civil trial. Six men and six women were chosen for the $40 billion civil suit filed against AEG Live by the King of Pop's mother and children. Another three jurors will be selected as alternates this week, with the trial ready to start any day now.

AEG Live was sued by Jackson's family for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, who is currently serving time after being convicted for involuntary manslaughter. They claimed the concert promoter negligently hired and supervised Murray when he served to care for MJ's health during the preparation of "This Is It" concert series.

Judge Yvette M. Palazuelos will preside over the trial, which could run for months.

Dr. Conrad Murray is currently appealing his conviction.
