    The Associated Press reports that attorneys for Michael Jackson's mother have told a judge they will not pursue a civil conspiracy claim in a wrongful death lawsuit against the organizers of the pop singer's planned series of comeback concerts.

    A judge previously ruled that Katherine Jackson could not pursue conspiracy and infliction of emotional distress claims against AEG Live without more information.

    The judge rejected AEG's request to dismiss the lawsuit. Mama Jackson sued AEG in September, saying that the concert promoter failed to properly supervise Dr. Conrad Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death and will stand trial shortly, and that the promoter's powers-that-be pushed Jackson through a grueling rehearsal schedule.

    AEG has denied any wrongdoing, of course.

    Team AEG Live or Team Mama Jackson?
