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."

I can't feel bad for her. She's been delusional all these years. Living off of your cash cow is over. Find a new one and shut up Katherine.

Michael can now finally stop moon dancing in his grave and get back to resting in peace. Lawyers for Jackson made out big time (which was probably their motivation all along.) I'd be interested to know what their fees were. Now, the legal industry and the Jackson clan can focus back on looking for someone else to sue for something. Hide the cutlery.

And what is your point? To keep dragging the grandkids through hell and back. Admit that your son killed himself by his own actions. Then get on with your life and let the grand kids heal.

I guarantee the Jacksons will appeal if at all possible. They'll never give up the gravy train.

I am HUGE MJ fan, have been since I was 11! Bottom line:
1. MJ is at fault for his death...........who would let a physician pump you full an anesthetic if you are not having surgery?! Only thing I can say is he was desperate. Too bad he let his financial situation get so bad that he was forced to do a tour.
2. Dr. Murray is also at fault. He failed to hold up the Hippocractic oath as a physician.
3. Others are at fault as well as like Dr. Arnold Klein.

But bottom line Michael's life got out of control, he trusted too many people, he didn't have enough people to tell him NO, he started down that slippery slope of drug addiction and never recovered.

The jury agreed that AEG hired Murray. The jury found that at the time of hiring, the way the question was worded, that Murray was competent. He was licensed and had no inquiries about bad practice pending or ruled upon by the medical boards. Both sides got something, but no money goes to Jermaine and Randy!

She NEVER said she wanted AEG to admit hired murderer and not Michael in the firs place. Before the verdict she was all about "oh I want to know what happened to my son...". Then we all knew that AEG hired murderer, it already came out also during his trial so nothing new. Greedy unnatural mother Katherine is pissed off since she couldn't get AEG's money as well as Michael Jackson's money so her parasites kids again won't get anything. She even dropped restitution to get more money from AEG allowing murderer to exploit Michael Jackson's name to make money. She is equally disgusting and without any scruples.
