(CNN) — A judge has tentatively ruled a lawsuit accusing a concert promoter of contributing to Michael Jackson’s death can go to trial.

The wrongful death lawsuit was filed by Jackson’s three children and his mother, against his concert promoter AEG Live.

Lawyers for Jackson’s children contends Dr. Conrad Murray was hired and supervised by AEG Live executives, and that they were negligent in hiring Murray.

Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s 2009 death. The judge has ordered him to meet with Jackson lawyers next month for a deposition. The wrongful death trial is set for April.
