A judge has officially rejected Katherine Jackson's bid for a new trial against AEG Live over the wrongful death of Michael Jackson. TMZ reports that Jackson was shut down by the judge, ruling that the original veridct in the jury trial stands. That verdict determined that AEG Live was not negligent in hiring Dr. Conrad Murray.
Jackson claimed that jurors had been given confusing instructions and were not able to properly deliver a verdict, a contention the judge disagreed with. Jackson's next records is to take the suit to the California Court of Appeal, where she has already filed legal docs.
