LOS ANGELES (AP) — Questioning of Michael Jackson's mother has been suspended after a judge determined she needed a break for the weekend.

Katherine Jackson testified for about 10 minutes in an afternoon session before Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos questioned whether she could continue.

The Jackson family matriarch was undergoing cross-examination by an attorney for AEG Live LLC.

The 83-year-old woman is suing the concert promotion company, claiming it did not properly investigate the doctor who was convicted of causing her son's death.

An AEG attorney had been asking Katherine Jackson questions about who she had consulted before filing the lawsuit in September 2010.

Her attorney Brian Panish told the judge that his client had only slept for about three hours on Thursday night.
