Michael Jackson's Mother May Have To Pay in AEG Live Lawsuit

Kathryn Jackson didn't receive the judgement she expected in her lawsuit against AEG Live over the death of her son Michael Jackson.

Kathryn had alleged that the actions of the company, who were promoting Michaels This is It comeback shows, contributed to his death but a jury found for AEG last October.

On Monday, Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos ruled that Kathryn should be responsible for the $800,000 in court costs that AEG incurred during the proceedings. The company originally was looking for $1.2 million but appeared to be satisfied with the ruling. The judgement will become official after AEG submits a detailed list of their costs to the court for review.

Marvin Putnam, attorney for AEG Live, said that the court's decision was correct in "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."
