LA City Attorney Seeks Funds For Jackson Memorial

Posted: Updated:
LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Los Angeles city attorney's office is investigating how the city can legally press third parties to pick up at least some of the costs for Michael Jackson's memorial service at the Staples Center.

City attorney spokesman John Franklin said Wednesday that his office aims to have a report ready for the City Council by Friday.

More than 17,000 fans attended the pop star's public memorial service on Tuesday. The event is estimated to cost up to $4 million in overtime for hundreds of police officers and other services.

AEG Live, which owns the Staples Center, hasn't committed any money to cover the city's bill. AEG Live spokesman Michael Roth didn't immediately return a message Wednesday morning.
