The verdict yesterday that AEG was not responsible for Michael Jackson's death was met with outcry from fans. 

Jackson' mother and his three children filed a lawsuit against the concert promoter for negligence when the singer was preparing for the AEG's sponsored "This Is It" tour in Europe.

The trial lasted five-months and cost millions of dollars. To re-cap the highlights and sum up the expenses we are joined by the LA Times' Jeff Gottlieb.
