Katherine Jackson

Judge Rejects Katherine's Plea for New Trial

In Michael Jackson Case

1/13/2014 2:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
breaking news

Katherine Jackson just got shut down by an L.A. judge ... who REJECTED her bid for a new trial in the Michael Jackson wrongful death case.

A jury shut Katherine down in October  ... ruling AEG Live did not screw up in hiring Dr. Conrad Murray.

Katherine claimed jurors had been given confusing instructions ... but the judge wasn't buying what she was selling.

Katherine's recourse now is to take up her beef with the California Court of Appeal.  She's already filed legal docs with the court.

en Todo Momento!!    

honestly? she would only have a 'case' if there was 'evidence' or 'proof' that there was a 'systematic arrangement' to 'eliminate' her son. like if there had been some 'arranged process or operation to 'exterminate' or 'erase' her son for some 'arbitrary' reason. like if he was regarded in some way as a 'disturbance' and they plugged him (michael jackson) into a system or process to have his genetic material removed or erased from the human gene pool. i know, sounds like a really bad sifi novel, but hey, i'm just pointing out that she would only have a valid case (which the judge apparently is not convinced) if there was a preemptive 'plan' or 'operation' to have michael jackson, mr jackson 'eliminated' or 'exterminated'. other than that, it is merely a very unfortunate chain of events................................................ you know?

Just My Opinion    

Why don't she use OJ Lawyers? If they can get someone off for killing two people, just because a frickin glove don't fit. Those guys could possibly talk a judge into a new trail. LOL

...this woman needs too no waste her time making lawyers richer...and sit back and enjoy her life in a nice quiet remote condo with no stairs and let her family visit when she feels up too is too short to go on with this nonsense..her son is responsible ultimately for his death and the only other person has done his required time...end of story..let her grand kids with Michael heal And lead a more drama free life...

It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.
