Trell admitted that his company's bean counters made another error when they listed Murray's $150,000-per-month negotiated salary as a production cost on AEG budgets.

There are several new, very interesting developments that happened in court today.  Panish is grilling AEG General Counsel Shawn Trell  about Tohme whether he WAS Michael's manager or not.  I found this tweet very interesting:

Anthony McCartney ‏@mccartneyAP 12m
Reposting. AEG lawyer says "This Is It" tour director Kenny Ortega worked without formal contract: http://bit.ly/10ILREj


It's just a huge mess.  For an event that's so big, seems like no one was working with a signed contract or a formal contract............  I guess this leaves everyone working with informal contracts........ha ha

Also check ABC7 tweets, there is a lot of info. coming out today, I don't know which to mention here, oh and I'm at work, so this is all I could post for now.

Here are some more tweets:

"It was important to get that medical done," Trell testified. He said policy would kick in on death, but not illness.

Panish asked if Trell sought life insurance on MJ where they would be the beneficiaries. "An inquire of that was made to Mr. Taylor."

Trell said Dr. Murray was asked later to help with these answers. "It was thought that he might be of some help."

It's like it was meant to look like AEG is counting on MJ dying--in other words conspiracy with Murray. Maybe Exhibit B will enter in soon.
What a total crazy movie set-up!

MJonmind, what is your interpretation of Exhibit B?

The way I read it was that AEG would benefit (get MJ's catalog and all future earnings, etc) in the event that Michael couldn't perform all the shows - but not benefit from MJ dying.  Like if Michael had performed half the shows but was too weak or something to continue, then AEG would get everything they wanted.  Which would make sense if they were pressuring Michael to be ready when he wasn't, and adding the additional shows - they up their chances of MJ not being able to fulfill the contract by starting the tour but not finishing it.  I'm trying to understand how AEG profits so much from Michael dying before the tour even began because it seems to me that they stood to gain more from him being alive but unable.  Whether that is all part of an elaborate script or an elaborate scam still needs to be determined because I still can't make my mind up about AEG.  Although someone like Randy Phillips could've been a mole for Michael, potentially, if this isn't JUST a movie and is also a sting of sorts.

Murray has no money, he have many debts and a BMW.

AEG Live controller Julie Hollander took the stand earlier Monday and said she never paid Murray anything because AEG never executed his draft contract.
A copy of Murray's contract was found inside his BMW outside Michael's death estate, but he was the only party who signed it.

Andrea, what about this trial discussion:

I mean this totally looks as if it's meant to look like the person is arranging life insurance because they're planning to kill the guy. That's how it reads to me.

Oh ok MJonmind, I see what you're saying.  Not sure what to think about that.  I think Trell said that non-appearance and cancellation insurance were standard, perhaps life insurance is too?  But it doesn't look like that was arranged before June 25th.  Perhaps AEG wanted to cover all eventualities so they would make money, no matter what might happen.  I don't think AEG's intent was to kill Michael though, they would've profitted more from him either completing the tour and moreso from him not completing the entire tour.  But who knows, AEG is a hard one to figure out.

I'm not saying they were trying to kill MJ, but that the 'storyline' is to make them LOOK like they are trying to kill MJ.
It's starting to show, what theory I'm leaning toward! :icon_lol:
