 The judge in Michael Jackson’s family’s lawsuit against promoters AEG Live dismissed Monday claims against two two executives accused over the 2009 death, leaving their firm as sole defendant. Judge Yvette Palazuelos ruled that Jackson lawyers have not proved claims that AEG Live chief executives Randy Phillips and Paul Gongaware could be held responsible for the singer’s death. The trial started in April, and could wrap up later this month. Phillips and Gongaware were named as defendants, along with AEG Live as a company.
