In a 16-page lawsuit filed at Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, Jackson claims that "AEG actions and inactions led to Michael Jackson's death on June 25, 2009." The lawsuit says that because AEG hired Dr. Conrad Murray, the company is responsible for his actions.
Murray was charged with and pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in February after coroners ruled Jackson's death a homicide caused by acute propofol intoxication.
Jackson died at age 50 after shortly before the scheduled start of the tour.
The suit, which does not seek specific damages, also claims that AEG did not provide a nurse or any life-saving emergency equipment, according to The Wrap.
AEG President and CEO Randy Phillips, tour director Kenny Ortega and several other individuals involved with the tour are named in the suit as well.
Calls to AEG and Katherine Jackson's lawyer were not immediately returned.
