Michael Jackson - Katherine Michael Jackson To Meet With Wrongful Death Jurors As She Mulls Appeal

Subscribe to Michael Jackson alerts

Michael Jackson's mother Katherine is meeting with jurors who cleared AEG Live executives in the King of Pop's wrongful death lawsuit to determine if she should launch an appeal.

A 12-person jury decided last week (02Oct13) that although the concert promoters had hired Dr. Conrad Murray to serve as the singer's personal physician ahead of his doomed This Is It gigs, they were not liable for damages following the King of Pop's death as the medic was ruled not "unfit or incompetent to perform the work for which he was hired".

The ruling means AEG Live bosses do not have to pay millions in compensation to Katherine Jackson and the superstar's three children, who claimed the promoters acted negligently by hiring Murray, who is currently serving time behind bars for involuntary manslaughter after he was convicted of administering the fatal dose of anaesthetic propofol that cost Jackson his life in 2009.

The Jackson family matriarch's lead lawyer, Brian Panish, has now spoken out about his client's plans to pursue the case further, revealing he and Katherine are hoping to talk to members of the Los Angeles jury in a bid to understand their actions for dismissing the wrongful death accusations. They will then make a decision about filing a possible appeal within the next month.

Panish tells the New York Daily News, "She (Katherine) isn't throwing in the towel... We can't give up until we gather all the information. Today is another chapter."
