Fittingly, the published opinions for January end with what's likely the highest-value appeal of the month (and perhaps the year): Katherine Jackson's appeal seeking to hold AEG Live accountable for Michael Jackson's death.
The trial court granted summary judgment for the defendant on various claims, and then at trial, the jury found against Ms. Jackson. The trial court did not disturb the verdict.
Today, the Court of Appeal affirms.
I'm sure that Ms. Jackson can afford to make an effort to get the California Supreme Court to review the case.
But it won't work. This one's over.
