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.

Enough already. Your son was a drug addict. His death was nobody's fault but his own and Conrad Murray's.

That verdict was a lack of respect and a slap in the face. Katherine was not kidding when she placed that lawsuit.

Good grief. I wish this money hungry crime family would just go away. If Katherine Jackson hadn't written all those settlement checks to the boys Michael Jackson molested, maybe they wouldn't be so hard up for money now. Jermaine Jackson buying expensive cars instead of paying for his kids, and the rest of the dysfunctional Jackson family need to go away and stop begging for more money from the public. The Jackson family are nothing but child molesters, criminals and mental degenerates.

Paris had a breakdown in connection with the first civil suit. For crying out loud, give those kids a break and let them heal!

OMG let it go, he killed himself, like so many others, with his drugs. Perhaps it's not easy for a family to admit, but maybe they should have done a little more to get him help! GET OVER IT!
