Trial of Michael Jackson’s Doctor Could Decide Insurance Coverage for Canceled ‘This Is It’ Concert

A decision earlier this month to try Michael Jackson's personal physician for involuntary manslaughter could determine whether London market insurers ante up in the cancellation of the famous singer's final "This is It" concert tour.
Because the policy reportedly may cover only Jackson's non-appearance due to "accident," it might not apply if Dr. Conrad Murray is convicted, reports the Post.
The trial of Murray, who is accused of giving Jackson an excessive amount of the intravenous anesthetic propofol and other drugs that allegedly killed him, is scheduled to begin in March.
