[photogallerylink id=15246 align=right] LOS ANGELES (AP) — The insurer of Michael Jackson’s planned series of comeback concerts is asking a Los Angeles judge to nullify a non-appearance policy issued to concert promoters.

Underwriters at Lloyd’s of London sued AEG Live and Jackson’s company on Monday, claiming the concert promoter has failed to provide necessary medical information and details about the physician charged with the singer’s death.

The suit states Lloyd’s issued a non-appearance and concert cancellation policy in April 2009 — roughly two months before the pop superstar died.

The insurer states a medical exam of Jackson required by the policy was never conducted, and that they should not have to pay out for the 50 canceled shows scheduled for London’s O2 arena.

An email message seeking comment from AEG was not immediately returned.
