Michael Jackson's family members offered to settle their wrongful death suit against executives at concert promoter Aeg Live but never received a response, according to Katherine Jackson's lawyer.

The wrongful death trial has just entered its fourth week and in court on Tuesday (21May13), Kevin Boyle revealed the whole case could have been avoided.

Boyle explained his client made an offer to Aeg bosses in January and again in March (13), but she was ignored.

Marvin Putnam, an attorney for Aeg, responded, "We don't settle matters that are utterly baseless. We believe that is the case in this matter. I can't see why we would consider a settlement as anything other than a shakedown."

The Jackson family matriarch and the King of Pop's three children filed suit against Aeg bosses, claiming they were negligent in handling the sick pop superstar as they forged ahead with plans for his This Is It comeback concerts in London, ignoring the fact he was seriously ill.

Jackson died in June, 2009.

Since Katherine and the kids are not in need of the money I think trying to slander them for their attempt to get justice for their deceased family member by calling it a shakedown only proves that they didn't give a damn about MJ, but how much MJ would have made for them. MJ's downfall to me always his trust in the wrong types of people and AEG definitely fits that bill.
