LOS ANGELES -- The pool of potential jurors to hear a case filed over Michael Jackson's death has grown to 104 people.

Attorneys and a judge concluded their second week of hardship screening on Friday.

In-person questioning of the panel will begin on Monday. It is expected to take multiple days for attorneys to select a panel of 12 jurors and several alternates to hear the case. Jurors must be available for 90 trial days.

The group of 103 has been given a 24-page questionnaire assessing their knowledge about the case.

The lawsuit was filed by Jackson's mother against concert giant AEG Live. The suit claims the promoter of Jackson's planned comeback concerts failed to properly investigate the doctor convicted of involuntary manslaughter for the singer's death.

AEG has denied all wrongdoing.
