AEG has responded to Katherine Jackson’s appeal to the Michael Jackson wrongful death verdict, saying that the Jackson family matriarch is just wasting her time and making a mockery of the legal system.
As we previously reported, Katherine Jackson is asking for a new trial, arguing that the jury was unfairly restricted by the jury instructions to conclude that AEG was not responsible for Conrad Murray’s incompetence after he was hired to take care of MJ.
According to Katherine, AEG did nothing to stop Murray’s reckless behavior around Michael … and so should be held responsible.
But AEG argues in its response that Katherine is just a desperate woman looking for a last-chance grab, saying that the jury instruction was fair and taken directly from the California Civil Jury Instruction guide book.
The case has been scheduled to be heard in court January 3.
