A French court has sided with five Michael Jackson fans who claimed they endured “emotional damage” after MJ’s untimely death. The fans have been awarded €1 ($1.36) for their troubles.
The AFP news agency reports that 34 fans had sued Conrad Murray, claiming they had emotional suffering after their hero’s accidental drug overdose in June 2009.
The big winners are two from France, two from Switzerland and one from Belgium — were members of the Michael Jackson Community fan club in France. Their lawyer Emmanuel Ludot said they’d proven their suffering “with the help of witness statements and medical certificates.”
