Katherine Jackson's lawsuit to go to trial

Katherine Jackson's civil lawsuit against AEG Live will go to trial.

Katherine wants the concert promoter to face action as she says they were responsible for hiring Doctor Conrad Murray to care for her son Michael Jackson prior to his death from acute Propofol intoxication in 2009.

And while Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos dismissed all but one claim in Katherine's lawsuit, her allegation AEG negligently hired and supervised Dr. Murray while he cared for her son will go to trial.

The ruling dismissed claims AEG could be held liable for Murray's conduct and breached its duty to properly care for the pop superstar.

The trial will start on April 2.

AEG Live was promoting Michael's 'This Is It' comeback concerts at The O2 arena in London, but the 'Thriller' hitmaker died in June 2009, aged 50, while in final preparations for the shows after Murray administered a lethal dose of the anesthetic Propofol in Michael's bedroom.

Katherine's lawyer Kevin Boyle had argued AEG controlled Dr. Murray's actions and failed to properly investigate him before agreeing to pay him to work as the singer's physician.

He cited Dr. Murray's debt problems as a huge concern AEG should have spotted and contends the company created a serious conflict between his responsibility to Jackson and his own financial well-being.

in November 2011, Dr. Murray was convicted of the involuntary manslaughter of Michael.
