LOS ANGELES, U.S. – Prosecutors want to delay the submission of the reports of forensic and fire department into the death of Michael Jackson parties to a civil action to prevent leakage of information before the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray.
In a document filed Wednesday, assistant District Attorney General, David Walgren and Deborah Brasil, argued that the media would seize some of these reports if they put them available to the plaintiffs and defendants in the civil suit.
The lawsuit was brought by the Lloyd’s London’s office against the entertainment giant AEG Live on the policy of the concert series that was to give the King of Pop before his death.
Prosecutors asked that the material, including photos of the autopsy of the star, remains confidential until the end of the trial for manslaughter of Dr Murray.
Stressing that the case of Jackson’s doctor had already received extensive media coverage, they argued that any leak would complicate the selection of jurors for the trial, scheduled to begin Sept. 8.
Mr. and Mrs. Walgren Brazil predicted that people would have access to documents would probably give the money to disclose the information. They added that some elements required by the civil suit may never be admitted as evidence during the criminal trial.
Michael Jackson died in June 2009 at the age of 50 a few days before traveling to London for his show “This Is It.”
Lloyd’s had provided benefits to $ 17.5 million. The company now refuses to pay, arguing that it was not aware that the singer was taking medication before it succumbs to an overdose of the anesthetic propofol.
