Brian Panish, attorney for the Michael Jackson family delivers his rebuttal argument to jurors in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial on September 26, 2013 in downtown Los Angeles, California. The case is expected to go to the jury later today. The singer's family has sued the entertainment firm AEG Live LLC, saying the company negligently hired and supervised Conrad Murray, the doctor who administered the dose of propofol that killed the singer. AEG maintains that Murray worked for Jackson and that any money the firm was supposed to pay the doctor was an advance to the singer. Pool/Getty Images
