Katherine Jackson

Spins Jury Verdict

We Proved Our Point

Katherine Jackson has a rather tortured analysis of the jury verdict -- she seems to be saying even if she didn't get any money, she still kinda won.

Katherine says, "We have said from the beginning that this case was a search for the truth.  We found the truth.  AEG hired Dr. Conrad Murray, the man who is in jail for killing Michael Jackson." 

She's right to this extent ... the jury did say AEG Live hired Murray.  In fact Katherine scoffs at AEG, saying, "AEG has denied for years, and continues to deny, that they hired Dr. Conrad Murray.  The jury found unanimously that AEG hired Dr. Murray."  

But then the jury delivered a knockout punch to the Jackson lawsuit, by deciding essentially that when AEG Live hired Murray, they had no reason to believe he was an incompetent general practitioner ... which was the whole point of bringing a doctor on board in the first place.  Therefore, AEG was not negligent.

Katherine is pissed, saying, "AEG has repeated the mantra that this lawsuit was a shakedown.  Such a statement is a slap in the face of the entire judicial system that allowed this case to go to a jury." 

Katherine and her lawyer, Perry Sanders, say "All options regarding the balance of the jury verdict (the ruling there was no negligence) are being considered."

She didn't prove anything. All she did was waste a million of wacko's dollars in an effort to get more.

She has a point and I disagree with the verdict. They hired Dr. Murray - the killer. I can't see past that.

Murray was forced down AEG's throat. No one travels with a personal doctor while touring....all except MJ. Because he needed Dr Feelgoods. Case should have been thrown out

Proves Michael was not only a pedophile; but also a drug addict. Probably the latter in response to the former.

This is the same denial that caused them to let Michael go on this way for so long. Clueless people. They will never have enough, be happy, or make the most of what they have.

She proved her point that MJ came from a very greedy and fame hungry family that is willing to drag his name through the mud to try to make money. What good came out of this trial? His daughter almost killed herself and all MJ's dirty laundry got aired. So sad for his children to be around that!

You have enough of your offspring's earnings, Kate. Time to make do with what they gave you and shut up. You'll all be fine and you'll STILL live better than 99% of the rest of the population.

Enough    

In other words, looking for a legal loophole for another attempted shake-down. Too bad the Jackson clan can't be sued for the stupidity, greed, self-centeredness, and coercion, that they've subjected us all to over the years.

AEG had no control over what Conrad Murray did behind closed doors but they had went through all needed procedures of making sure he was capable of handling mj medical needs i blame the so called doctor himself for not being more attentive or for that matter professional when handling a life he was just so careless of ones life
