LOS ANGELES —

Attorneys and a Los Angeles judge have selected 81 people to remain in the jury pool for a case between Michael Jackson's mother and concert giant AEG Live.

Nine people were added to the pool Wednesday after the sixth day of jury selection.

Screenings will continue Thursday and Friday to try to find enough people to serve in Katherine Jackson's case against the promoter of her son's planned series of comeback concerts.

The Jackson family matriarch claims AEG executives failed to investigate the doctor who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death. The company denies all wrongdoing.

Potential jurors are being given a 24-page questionnaire assessing their knowledge of the case.

In-person questioning of potential jurors is scheduled to begin Monday, with opening statements expected later this month.
