Katherine Jackson

APPEALS Decision

In Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Case

The fight over Michael Jackson's death is NOT over, because Katherine Jackson has just appealed one of the judge's major decisions in the case ... TMZ has learned.

As you know, the jury ruled AEG was NOT responsible for MJ's death, concluding the company was not wrong in hiring Dr. Conrad Murray. Earlier in the case, the judge dismissed two key players as defendants ... CEO Randy Phillips and Paul Gongaware, who was in charge of producing and promoting Jackson's "This Is It" concert tour.

Katherine and MJ's 3 kids sued for more than $40 billion, claiming the loss of Michael devastated their lives -- and now apparently believe the decision to dismiss Phillips and Gongaware torpedoed their case.

Katherine and co. are appealing the dismissal.

It's very difficult to overturn judge decisions in civil cases, but it can happen ... especially if the judge screwed up an important ruling.

They have got to let this go. Just because they didn't hear the verdict they wanted means that the verdict was wrong.

I'm all for her appealing the verdict. However, she needs to reimburse Los Angeles the cost of the first trial.

Greedy, greedy, greedy. So it's worth 40 billion because Katherine and his kids are sad? Join the real world lady, people lose loved ones every day and are sad. You and your grandchildren are not special. You have all benefited way more than you should have.

She is wasting her time, and her attorneys are getting paid all that money for nothing. Everyone knows that MJ hired Murray because Murray was the only one willing to break the law and administer Propofol to MJ at his home. If AEG knew MJ was taking all those drugs, they would have never booked MJ for any of those concerts.
