Michael Jackson's mother wants to appeal the verdict of her wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live.

Katherine Jackson remains hopeful after hearing comments made the jury, and her lawyers are gathering information to help them make a decision on whether they will try to have the verdict overturned in the next 30 days.

The 83-year-old Jackson family matriarch's lead trial lawyer Brian Panish told the New York Daily News: ''She isn't throwing in the towel.''

He added: ''We can't give up until we gather all the information. Today is another chapter.''

Following a five-month trial, the jury decided in Los Angeles on Wednesday (02.10.13) that the promoter of Michael's 'This Is It' comeback concerts hired Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in November 2011, but shouldn't be held liable for the disgraced physician's actions that led to the 'Thriller' hitmaker's death in 2009 because he was neither ''unfit'' nor ''incompetent.''

Katherine met with her lawyer on Friday (04.10.13) to discuss the outcome of the case and he said afterwards: ''She feels that the jurors ended the trial really liking Michael. One question asked of the jury was, 'What was your impression of Michael?' And they said it was way better after hearing what a great father he was and how much he did for humanity. They understood he struggled but that he really did his best.''

Michael's oldest son Prince Michael, 16, is mystified by the verdict, according to Mr. Panish.

He said: ''Prince is doing okay. He said he felt good about the jury finding that AEG hired Dr. Murray but didn't understand their answer to the second question - as many of us don't.''

The verdict should be overturned, AEG should be held responsible for their actions. It is the agreement they drafted and their horrifying managerial practices that lead to this terrible tragedy, all motivated by glory and greed. But even if the verdict isn't overturned, AEG's role in the wrongful death of Michael Jackson is on the record for anyone that wants to learn the truth.

Michaels true fans are all with you and wish you and Prince ,Paris and Blanket all the best in the appeal.If someone did to my son what Dr Murray and all the AEG cronies did to Michael I would do the same as you are doing.There are still too many unanswered questions regarding MJ s death.They all saw the condition he was in and how fast his condition was going downhill on a daily basis.Someone needs to be held responsible.It seems the way the questions were worded for the jurors , it was the only conclusion .Mr Messereau would be a good choice for some advice .Please dont give up , do everything you can.

Advice to Ms. Katherine: GET A NEW LAWYER!!! Ask Tom Messereau for suggestions. That lawyer you had didn't so such a good job in my view and he should have told you that you were asking for to much!
