After being rejected by a jury in October, the Jacksons' legal reps are attempting to open a new lawsuit.
Katherine Jackson is seeking to re-launch the wrongful death suit after a judge ruled against her and in favor of Michael Jackson’s concert promoter AEG back in October. Attorneys for Katherine Jackson and Michael’s three children have filed a request for a new trial, citing misconduct of the jury and insufficient evidence as some of the key reasons, Reuters reports. Another reason cited by the Jacksons’ legal team is newly uncovered evidence, although the documents do not specify any further details.
This will be the second time that the Jackson matriarch has opened the lawsuit, having originally asked for a billion from AEG.
The wrongful death suit was launched by Katherine Jackson earlier this year, aiming to prove that AEG had been negligent in hiring Dr Conrad Murray as Michael’s physician and thus participated in his death. Jackson died in 2009 after receiving a lethal dose of the drug propofol at the hand of Murray. The physician was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 and sentenced to four years in prison. Thanks to automatic credit for good behavior, however, his sentence was lowered to just two years and Murray was released on October 28 this year.
Katherine Jackson isn't going down without a fight. Another fight.
Katherine Jackson's lawyer Brian Panish has acknowledged that his client is "obviously disappointed" at losing the $1.5 billion damages case against concert promoter AEG, though told the New York Daily News, "There's going to more to this story."
"She's obviously disappointed, but she's a very strong woman," lead plaintiff's lawyer Brian Panish said on Thursday, "She's been through a lot in life, and she's doing the best she can. She only wants what is best for Michael's children, who are her No. 1 priority," he added.
He called the five-month trial "a search for the truth" that likely didn't end with Wednesday's verdict, which acknowledged that AEG Live did in fact hire Dr Conrad Murray as Michael Jackson's doctor, though that they were not responsible for his death.

The court case had been filed by Katherine Jackson, Michael's mother, and his three children - Prince, Paris, Blanket- were also listed as plaintiffs. The concert promoters were responsible for arranging Jackson's comeback tour in 2009, the case against them claimed they were negligent in hiring Dr Conrad Murray as Jackson's doctor.
Michael Jackson died in 2009 after his doctor administered propofol.
Murray was charged with involuntary manslaughter in 2011 as it was ruled he had administered a fatal dose of propofol which led to Jackson's death. The drug propofol is usually used as an anaesthetic in surgical operations; however Murray administered the drug to Jackson in July 2009 as a sleeping aid, with fatal results. Despite being a difficult drug to administer, Jackson's lawyers argued,"Propofol might not be the best idea. But if you have a competent doctor, you're not going to die."
The jury ruled that AEG was not at fault for the singer's death in 2009.
