PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS CONVERTED 4:3 MATERIAL Michael Jackson will be the subject of yet another court case - this time a civil one, brought on by his mother Katherine against concert giant AEG Live. The trial - which is scheduled to begin jury selection on April 2 - will examine if AEG was criminally negligent in its hiring and supervision of Dr. Conrad Murray, Jackson's personal physician who was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in 2011. Hollywood Reporter Matthew Belloni said the case won't be easy to prove. SOUNDBITE The Hollywood Reporter Executive Editor, Matthew Belloni saying (English): "So, that's a pretty big jump that you have to make; you have to find that they were negligent, that they knew that there was going to be a potential problem, but went forward anyway with this doctor and that the risks came to fruition. I think that if you had to say which side has a tougher case to prove, I think Katherine Jackson's side is a pretty tough case to prove." AEG Live was in the midst of working on a series of Jackson comeback concerts in 2009. The tour, called "This Is It," was supposed to be a 50 show residency at London's O2 arena. Their plans ended on June 25, 2009 when Jackson died at his Los Angeles home from a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol, administered by Murray. If a settlement is not reached before Tuesday (April 2), a more than three month trial is anticipated. Online tabloid TMZ has reported that Katherine Jackson is seeking 40 billion dollars in damages.
