Michael Jackson Fans Sue Conrad Murray For 'Emotional Damages'
How small a sum you ask? Each of the fans were awarded one euro or roughly $1.36. Their lawyer, Emmanuel Ludot said the damages were "symbolic" and that these five fans had proven their suffering "with the help of witness statements and medical certificates."
"As far as I know, this is the first time in the world that the notion of emotional damage in connection with a pop star has been recognized," Ludot told the AFP news agency. "They have been subjected to ridicule and I am delighted their suffering has been taken seriously by the law." more on this story
