Michael Jackson's mother Katherine is reportedly going to be heading back to court after a wrongful death lawsuit claiming that AEG Live had negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray when he cared for her son, claiming that he failed to properly supervise him.

Back in 2010, the King of Pop's mum filed a civil lawsuit against the gig promoter, the concert giants behind the star's doomed comeback shows in London, claiming bosses were negligent in ignoring life-threatening health concerns going on behind closed doors at his rented Los Angeles mansion, the Associated Press reports.

On Thursday (Feb 28), Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos dismissed all but one count in the lawsuit against AEG Live executives, who Katherine claims were responsible for hiring Conrad Murray - the doctor who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the superstar's death.

Katherine will now go to trial on 2 April over allegations AEG Live heads negligently hired and supervised Murray.

According to various US news websites, Marvin Putnam, an attorney for AEG, has argued that Murray was not employed by the promoter and insists he is confident the company will win in court.

In a hearing last week, Katherine's lawyer Kevin Boyle blamed AEG Live for failing to properly investigate Murray before agreeing to pay him to care for MJ's physical well-being.

The family also claim that the company should have known that the doctor's debt problems could create a serious conflict between his duty to treat the singer safely and his own financial issues.

The case continues.
