Lawyer details interactions with Jackson's doctor


An attorney who drafted the agreement for Michael Jackson's doctor to work on his ill-fated comeback concerts says she told a tour promoter executive the physician appeared to be successful.

Kathy Jorrie is an independent attorney who does legal work for concert promoters AEG Live LLC. She drafted agreements for Conrad Murray to serve as Jackson's doctor during the singer's planned This Is It concerts.

Jorrie recently told a jury Murray had said to her, while negotiating to work on Jackson's This Is It shows, he earned more than $1 million (R10 million) a month from his medical practices. Jorrie says she relayed the information to AEG Live's CEO six days before the singer's death.

Jackson's mother is suing AEG Live, claiming it negligently hired Murray.

AEG denies it hired the former cardiologist.
