AEG trial win leaves Jackson attorneys high-and-dry

SHARE AEG trial win leaves Jackson attorneys high-and-dry

While Katherine Jackson, her children and grandkids are putting on stoic public faces — after losing their big case against AEG Live — their attorneys are the ones on the outs. They had taken on the case through a contingency agreement — foregoing any upfront fees in return for a guarantee of a third of whatever the Jacksons were awarded.

†Besides all that, there’s word the angry AEG folks are now going to sue Katherine Jackson & Co. to reimburse them for their own legal fees — which run into the millions.
