For the first time in history, a group of Michael Jackson's notoriously fanatical fans have been awarded one euro each in damages, for 'emotional distress' caused by his death.
The 34 France-based fans sued Dr Murray, the King of Pop's doctor who was responsible for giving Michael Jackson a lethal dose of anesthetics in 2009 over their 'endured suffering'. And despite the sneers
when the news became public, the fans went through with the court process.
Today, out of the 34 complainants, five of them were awarded one euro each as judges said it was just the five of them that had indeed suffered 'emotional damage'.
Michael Jackson had died at his rented mansion in the Holmby Hills district of LA in June 2009 following an overdose of anesthetic propofol. His doctor, Dr Murray served two years of a four-year jail term after he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, and was released in October.
