Michael Jackson's mother Katherine has filed an appeal to the jury's verdict in her son's wrongful death lawsuit against AEG Live, according to court documents obtained by ET.

In a trial that began in April, Jackson sued events company AEG Live for more than $40 billion for the wrongful death of her son, who died at age 50 in 2009.

After a lengthy trial, the jury decided in October that AEG was not liable in the late pop icon's death, which Jackson is now appealing.
