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.

I think the dad and brothers are behind these lawsuits. They're using Katherine.

Tell you useless, money-hungry, degenerate kids that the gravy train has pulled out and drop this ridiculous AEG blame. Michael was a drug addict who was responsible for his own death. Time to accept that

"Katherine claimed jurors had been given confusing instructions". Yeah, right. Like she would know. "Take your first left, then your first right" would likely confuse this woman.

If Michael only knew the pain in his mother's heart. Mrs. Jackson will die with a broken heart. There's nothing like a mother's love for her children. But, Michael is to blame for a lot of his fooliness. I really feel sorry for his kids. Why even have these kids when you're doing dangerous things. The kids will suffer forever.

I think it's a crying shame how those kids of hers are making her look like a fool. They will stoop so low as to make their mother keep trying a worthless case in order for them to not have to work. She needs to put her foot down once and for all and tell them to fend for themselves.

The judge just did the most right thing, but NO surprise she's already filed docs with the Court of Appeal to try to get a new all for money trial in which she dragged Michael Jackson's children, no mattered what, in another pathetic attempt to grab more money for her parasites kids too, she is as greedy and as disgusting as AEG and the people she likes to attend, included her family of leeches parasites and her worthy hubby!!! Without scruples they should just go to hell where they belong!!!

It's about Joe Jackson needing more money. Plus someone has to pay for jermaine's new car It isn't abt the kids.

Give it up Katherine. Michael was responsible for his own death. He was a junkie. Spend the almost billion dollars he left you all and go away.

The more that woman insist on trying to milk any money out of anyone, the more you drag dirt on the little that is left of MJ integrity.

We are forgetting the good things he has done in the past by you constantly reminding everyone of his darker side and shortcoming with your evident greed.
Do you really think anyone believes you are doing this for your love for MJ ? I mean, really??!!
