LOS ANGELES (AP) - Testimony has ended in a negligence lawsuit against the promoter of Michael Jackson's planned comeback concerts.

Closing arguments in the case are expected to begin on Tuesday and jurors will likely begin deliberating next week.

Lawyers for Jackson's mother concluded testimony in the 21-week case on Friday after jurors heard from Jackson's longtime personal physician, Dr. Allan Metzger, and his attorney.

Metzger testified about Jackson's skin conditions, burns and other injuries that required medical care from a variety of doctors.

Jackson's mother is suing concert promoter AEG Live LLC claiming it negligently hired Conrad Murray, then a cardiologist who was later convicted of causing the death of the superstar in 2009.

AEG Live denies it hired Murray or bears any responsibility for the singer's death.
