The legal fight that Katherine Jackson and her grandchildren have put up for Michael Jackson's wrongful death has suffered a blow on Monday, September 9 when the L.A. court judge dismissed the negligence lawsuit against the two executives who were sued along with their employer, concert promoter AEG Live. The ruling left the company as the only remaining defendant in the case now possibly nearing its culmination.

AEG CEO Randy Phillips and head honcho Paul Gongaware were sued for allegedly hiring Dr. Conrad Murray, the King of Pop's personal physician at the time of his death four years ago who was consequently sentenced to four years in prison for involuntary manslaughter. Judge Yvette Palazuelos said Jackson lawyers failed to prove that the two AEG executives "control, direct or perpetrate" MJ's drug use that ultimately took its toll on his unstable health leading to his death.

James Bond's 'Spy Who Loved Me' Submarine Car Sold at Auction in London

September 10, 2013 04:46:48 GMT


A white Lotus Esprit used by Roger Moore to film an underwater scene for 1977's James Bond movie "Spy Who Loved Me" has been sold at RM Auction that ran live on the Internet Monday, September 9. Bidding started at £100,000 and the car eventually went under the hammer for £550,000 or $864,600.

It was less than the initial estimation of between £650,000 and £950,000, perhaps because the custom car cannot be driven on the road, although it is said to be a fully operational submarine. The highest price for an ex-007 car was set in 2010, when the Aston Martin DB5 used in Sean Connery-starring "Goldfinger" was sold for £2.9 million.
