Katherine Jackson considering appeal
October 5th, 2013 6:20pm EDT
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 (10.02.13) 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 (10.04.13) 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."
