Court Rejects Michael Jackson’s Father’s Challenge To Estate Management

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A California appeals court has rejected a bid by Michael Jackson’s father to challenge the administration of his son’s lucrative estate.

A three justice panel of the California Second District Court of Appeal issued its ruling Tuesday in Los Angeles.

The justices affirmed a probate judge’s ruling that Joe Jackson didn’t have standing to intervene in his son’s estate.

Despite being excluded from his son’s 2002 will, Joe Jackson had been seeking a say in the financial affairs.

The appeals court heard arguments in the case on Oct. 6.

    AWESOME!!!

    He got what he deserved. Creepy old man who was excluded from the will asking for millions but at the same time saying how much his son meant to him. Loser!

    He is just as slimy in person too.

    THIS IS WRONG. SOMEBODY IN THE JACKSON FAMILY SHOULD BE IN CONTROL OF HIS ESTATE. NOT A BUNCH OF CROOKED WHITE LAWYERS. I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF A CASE WHERE A PERSONS FAMILY DID NOT HAVE A SAY IN AN ESTATE CASE. AND ABSOLUTELY NO CONTROL OVER IT. GO TO THE SUPREMEM COURT IF YOU HAVE TO. FIGHT THIS FORGERY ALL THE WAY !!!!

      Michael Jackson KNEW what he was doing when he assigned “crooked white lawyers” to oversee the estate. He knew that his mom would just hand over the money to Joe. Michael wasn’t stupid.

      And according to the news report from yesterday, he is now the riches dead person out there. Do you honestly think this would have happened under family control. Ummm… no. They can thank the “crooked white lawyers” for that.

      his mother has the control just not the father because the father was excluded from his will

    Regardless of what people is saying, law is law. This is what Michael wanted to begin with. He spelled out clearly in his legal will who will be in control of his estate in case he dies, not his parents nor his siblings. So I think the Court has made the lawfully correct decision in this case.

  4. Johnnie Cochran says:

    Even a pedophile like MJ knew leaving his estate in the hands of his family would be disastrous. They have been leeching off of his money for years and turned a blind eye to the molestations out of fear of being cut off from the golden goose.
