Katherine Jackson

APPEALS Decision

In Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Case

EXCLUSIVE

1113-katherine-michael-jackson-getty
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.

Michael has been dead since 2009; Katherine has been at the trial long enough. She need's to move on and stop being so immature..

It is wasting the tax payer's serious money..

Here we go again with the "drug addiction",thanks to Debbie.What did she do about it? Now Michael's death caused her pain,doesn't she consider the children's feelings at all? Last but not least why did she want out maybe because raising children is hard work?

Greedy unnatural mother Katherine involved Michael Jackson's children in HER ALL for money lawsuit, because SHE takes ALL of her decisions autonomously then claims to have been pressured by others, BULL****!!!! And even forced Prince and Paris to testify, no matter how hard was to them!!! It was NOT a children's choice for sure, they are just children and have been dragged in all the hunts for money of the Jackson family of parasites, Katherine first!!! NO surprise she and her family of parasites want to appeal the verdict, they already were with their hands outstretched to grab the money, it must have been such a shock to them leeches when the jury gave them nothing!!! With NO doubt Michael's loss devastated the lives of his children who love and adore their dad, but absolutely NO doubt they leeches parasites were shocked ONLY for the "loss" of the money. With no shame they dragged Michael Jackson and his children in their hunt for money trial defaming him!!! They are not so different from murderer, NO moral and NO shame!!!

I feel bad for her...she still can't believe her son was a drug addict. Its not to say he wasn't a talented person....he just was medicating the pain he was in from all the years of abuse he had to deal with.....just let go Katherine and you will begin to heal.....

This page is extremly biased agaisnt misses jackson. she wants justice for her dead son, she thinks AEG had a hand in it, and she wants to bring AEG to there knees. if i had a son and he died, and i thought someone had a hand in it, i would break every bone in my body to make them crumble, regardless of any money i won i would want to watch them suffer. she believes they had a hand in it. its got **** all to do with anyone else.

CM was not doing a good job as a doctor. So, they
They should have heard another doctor about MJ's health.

this ungrateful bloodsucking family will never let this go sadly your son was addicted to drugs the last years of his life and if you truly think this did NOT play a role in his untimely death you are mistaken. If it hadn't been this Doctor it would of been another....
