LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A jury of 12 people has been accepted by both sides for the trial of a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the mother of Michael Jackson against AEG concert promoters.

Lawyers on Monday then immediately began questioning prospects to sit as alternate jurors.

The jury was seated a week after a pool of more than 100 candidates was assembled. Many prospects were eliminated because they said serving on a three-month trial would be a hardship.

Others were excused for cause when they said they had a bias against Jackson or disapproved of big-figure lawsuits.

Katherine Jackson's lawsuit claims AEG, the company that promoted the ill-fated "This Is It" concert, hired Dr. Conrad Murray as Jackson's physician without checking his credentials. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in the death of the superstar.
