AEG Live has requested that Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson's former dermatologist, turn over all of his records, dating back to January 1984. AEG is currently facing a lawsuit from the family of Jackson, who claim that its officials negligently hired Dr. Conrad Murray to care for him.
Conversely, the promoter claims that they are not responsible for Murray's actions because, while it may have paid his bills, he was hired by and reported to Jackson himself.
AEG has requested the records, or a legitimate reason from Klein why they should not be subject to the company's subpoena; currently, Klein has only surrendered documents from 2008 to 2009.
In his criminal case, Murray's lawyers argued Klein provided painkillers to Jacko, claiming that it was a reliance on that medication which caused the singer to ask Murray for propofol, which finally did him in.
A hearing is scheduled for September 12.
