Judge Orders Michael Jackson's Mother To Pay Court Costs
Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.15.2014

After her failed lawsuit against AEG Live over Michael Jackson's death, Billboard reports Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos has ordered Michael Jackson's mother Katherine to pay over $800,000 in court costs to the company. The trial lasted for five months and ended in October. A jury ruled that AEG did not negligently hire Conrad Murray, who was convicted of causing Jackson's death in 2009 before a comeback tour.

The ruling will be finalized after AEG submits a list of costs including court filing fees, court reporters and travel. Lawyers for AEG and Katherine Jackson agreed not to argue over the ruling but it may be appealed. Jackson's lawyer Kevin Boyle said that an order would be made after reviewing the final details. The verdict and rulings in the case are being appealed.

AEG originally wanted over $1.2 million for court costs, but Katherine's lawyers said only 1/4 of that was justified. AEG lawyer Marvin Putnam said the court did the right thing "by ordering Katherine Jackson to pay nearly $1 million spent in having to defend a matter that she should have never brought in the first place." A motion filed by her legal team last week said the costs would be paid by her and Michael's three children, who are supported by his estate.

The estate has earned hundreds of millions of dollars after Michael's death and paid off his debts. It covers schooling, housing and other costs for his children and mother.
