(AURN) -- Although they claim no wrong doing in the case, the attorney for Michael Jackson's family supplied emails in a Los Angeles court room Monday that they say prove the media giant, AEG Live, was well aware of Jackson's physical and mental state during preparations for his final "This is It" tour.   Attorney Brian Panish says the company hired Dr. Conrad Murray to give Jackson the powerful drug Propofol to keep him awake for rehearsals.

The most damaging evidence for the corporation is expected to be an email from AEG Live co-CEO Paul Gongaware asking concert director Kenny Ortega to scold Murray about letting Jackson skip rehearsal over health concerns. Katherine Jackson and family are asking the LA judge to force AEG Live to pay forward the $40 billion MJ would have earned had the tour hit the road.
