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.

Not only will the Jackson family NEVER collect a Dime from AEG, but it will get to the point where the Jackson will have to pay Millions of Dollars to AEG for Legal Fees.

Katherine's greedy and deadbeat sons are behind this. It appalls me that she allows them to manipulate her like this. Ms. Katherine, you're a strong believer of the Bible, you should know that greed is one of the seven deadly sins. GREED, GREED, GREED!!!!
