Michael Jackson’s mother Katherine is involved in a new legal squabble with AEG Live after losing her court battle with the live giant earlier this year, in which the Jackson family matriarch wanted the concert promoter held liable for the death of her son, as the employer of the doctor convicted for causing his demise in 2009 through negligent treatment.

While Mrs Jackson got about appealing the ruling, AEG passed its legal bills onto the court, requesting that the Jacksons cover them as the unsuccessful party in the case. And those bills top $1.2 million.

According to TMZ, legal reps for the Jacksons are now dissecting those charges, and are questioning the costs cited by AEG for process servers, creating court exhibits for use in the trial, and for covering the costs of witnesses whose depositions were, the Jacksons claim, unnecessary.
