Katherine Jackson

APPEALS Decision

In Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Case

11/13/2013 10:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

Won't happen they will have to pay out of their own pockets this time. Good luck trying to find a law firm that will rep them. Not after the mega millions their old firm spent and not getting a penny back.

Jackson was a full blown pharm junkie for over 25 years and she always new it. So did the entire family.

Jacksons kids are getting all the money so keep sponging off of them which they have been doing.

Katherine isn't doing this for herself.
She's doing it for Bubbles the Chimp.

If this is true then I've lost all the respect I had for her! Let your son rest in peace! The estate already has enough money for her not to worry! She claimed she wanted the truth! She got that now what? She has to take a little bit of a responsibility here that the family never really cared enough about MJ and that's why he blocked them out! Now it's all about the money!

She should sue Jermaine for that greasy hair of his, and for naming his son "Jermajesty"! Now these are real crimes!

devil's advocate    

I think the Katherine Jackson should be forced to pay AEG's legal bill when she loses this latest attempt to sue. It's ridiculous that people can continue to sue and cost people/companies millions of dollars in legal fees once they have had their day in court.

Dear Katherine,

I love Micheal. I love you too Mrs. Katherine

Micheal would not want this. He would want you to enjoy your grandchildren and the money and home he has already left you. You are a senior, to frail to be taking this on again. The result will be the same, my dear. Please step back and the Lord handle the rest. :)

I agree with those who see the Jacksons as money hungry, and the proof is overwhelming,it is not something you want to say or even think.Lets look back at the early years, all the money being made, all of it being spent? No one bothered to have a pro invest there money and the parents just ate it up.Now many years later the whole family has been living together (yuck) in a mansion and acting like they had the money to keep up a lifestyle that ended many MANY years ago.It ended with Micheal.... dont know why they could not find something creative to do but they lived off of him and he let them. I feel bad for his kids they and they alone deserve his estate, they should have advisors to take care of it, and walk no run out that incestuous mansion door where about 5 family's live.

And on the day of the non-guilty verdict of this trial, Jermaine will probably buy a $200,000 Aston Martin.

Sad but true.. Michael was just as responsible and to blame for his own death.. He could have said NO to DRUGS! Though I can't imagine her heartache she has to move on from this and begin to live in the presence and in peace.
