Recent news reports have confirmed that the Los Angeles County Judge, Yvette Palazuelo, issued last January 13 a final rejection of the Jackson family’s request for a re-trial.
Consistent to her previous decision earlier this month, where she tentatively denied the family’s request for a new trial, she once again rejected the request for the last time, affirming that she did not err in her decisions on the case’s verdict form or with the dismissal of a separate negligence claim.
Katherine Jackson along with the King of Pop’s children had filed the said motion for a new trial last December after losing their bid to hold MJ’s concert promoter, AEG Live, liable for the singer’s death last October.
Under their motion for a new trial, the family had argued that the presiding judge used a faulty verdict. They further claimed that the judge likewise erred by refusing them to pursue a separate negligence claim. In addition, they had also cited several other alleged mistakes committed by the presiding judge during the six-month long trial.
Now that the family once again lost their battle, the family’s group of Los Angeles wrongful death attorneys claimed that they will appeal the recent verdict.
Apparently, although it might be over for the presiding judge, but for the Jackson family, it is not definitely over.
