Judge: Michael Jackson’s mom should pay costs
April 15, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — A judge has indicated that Michael Jackson’s mother should pay the promoter of her son’s ill-fated comeback concerts more than $800,000 in costs associated with her failed negligent hiring lawsuit.

Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos issued a tentative ruling Monday against Katherine Jackson,

The five-month trial ended with a jury determining that AEG Live LLC did not negligently hire the doctor convicted of causing Michael Jackson’s death in 2009.

AEG Live initially sought more than $1.2 million to cover the cost of court reporters and exhibits. Katherine Jackson’s lawyers claimed only about a quarter of that amount was justified.

Both sides agreed not to argue the tentative ruling, although once finalized it can be appealed.
