They think she is grasping at straws...
TMZ reports that AEG has responded to Katherine Jackson's claims for a new trial in a wrongful death case over her late son, Michael Jackson. AEG believes Jackson is wasting her time and making a mockery of the legal system.
Jackson recently asked for a new trial in the wrongful death case by claiming the jury was tricked because their instructions blocked them from being able to hold AEG responsible for Conrad Murray's action after he was hired to take care of Michael Jackson. AEG is reportedly claiming that Jackson is grasping at straws, and her appeal is nothing more than a last ditch effort.
AEG is arguing that the jury instructions were clear, fair, and taken directly from the California Civil Jury instruction guide book.
A judge will decide who is right on January 3 when the case is due back in court.
