Michael Jackson Fans Win Token 83p Compo Because They Were Sad He Died

By Gary Cutlack on at

Are you sad someone died? Better lawyer up, as legal experts acting on behalf of a group of depressed Michael Jackson fans have won a staggering €1 each in compensation from Dr Conrad Murray, the man deemed responsible for the bonkers pop star's death.

The case saw a group of Jacko fans come together to sue Murray for making them sad that the singer had died, claiming they had experienced "suffering" and "emotional damage" as a result of his conking out and and the cancellation of a series of concerts.

The claimants say they're not interested in the monetary reward, but instead appear to be trying to convince Jacko's mother to let them visit the site of his unmarked grave. [Metro]
