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.

Leave it be! Michael Jackson was the only person that wanted to have all those drugs, no one forced them on him, he accepted them, he is the only one responsible for his death. Sure there was negligence by the doctor, should have said no. BUT GET THE HELL OVER IT!

I'm sorry Mrs. Jackson, you need to let this go! Even if the verdict is overturned, its not going to bring Michael back.

The verdict was legally correct (lots of luck with that appeal). This whole family is disgusting, fighting like vultures over his death.

M Jackson is responsible for his own death. His mother is a greedy, shameful ass-h-o-l-e. He made choices.

Folks, I don't think its her. The lawyers behind the scene potentially will make millions on just appeals alone on one side and her greedy azz family on the other side. And in the middle is a woman almost 90 years old who needs to sit her azz down and live a normal senior life & grieve her kid and let the others support themselves. Janet needs to bring her azz back for a minute from her Kingdom and help her mother give her greedy azz siblings a fat middle finger to it all.

Katherine Jackson could use her sons death as a opportunity to become a voice and advocate for addiction and recovery education!

Rehab (treatment) is not just for addicts - Katherine Jackson just might need Rehab. Let it go Grandma Katherine.

Katherine, STOP already, some of us still love MJ and miss him,however, money will never fill that void in you're heart! You and MJ'S kid's have more than enough money to live on! Quit letting you're older boy's push you to file again, they're loser's and need to get a job!

I've never seen an entire family in such a state of Denial. MJ was a "JUNKIE" plain and simple. As far as I'm concerned, nobody was responsible for his death than himself. Don't worry Mom, there's plenty of money left for you and the other cretins in the family.
