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.

Go ahead, Mrs. Katherine Jackson. Insist on a new trial.
MJ was deceived, threatened, pressured, coerced, manipulated by AEG Live, and suffered damage to their physical integrity. AEG's contract with MJ was unfair, was a tort. AEG only via profits, the money, which would give MJ, with the This is it concerts. MJ became a slave of AEG.
MJ would have to do 50 concerts followed, as a money-making machine.
Behind all this there was greedy people, dangerous, unscrupulous, like a bunch of vultures. Which artist can handle so much pressure?
I think that Katherine Jackson should insist on objective theory of liability (LEX AQUILIA), and do what think is right and fair.The true fans of MJ await justice. Good luck.
