Overview of Court of Appeals Ruling for Jackson v. AEG Appeal
Only a week after the oral arguments Court of Appeals have denied Katherine Jackson’s request for a new trial against AEG and affirmed jury’s decision. Court of Appeals released a 39 page ruling and certified the ruling for publication making it citable by other parties and courts.
Assuming not everyone will have time or interest to read the full ruling, I decided to copy sections from the ruling to make it easier to understand why the Court of Appeals decided the way they did.

Jacksons argued the trial court made a mistake in dismissing the negligence claim. Below is Court of Appeal’s explanation why the trial court’s decision was correct.
