Michael Jackson’s father is refusing to give up on being included in his son’s will and is taking his case to the California Court of Appeals. Read more on Joe Jackson below.
Joe Jackson is still fighting his late son’s estate executors after a Los Angeles judge approved the administrators in Michael Jackson’s 2002 will.
Michael Jackson died in June and left his estate in the hands of John Branca and John McClain. But Jackson’s family members wondered if the will was valid because they said Michael was in New York when the will was said to have been signed in California.
Joe Jackson tried to have Branca and McClain disqualified and said the men hid an error in the will from the courts. But the judge signed off on the papers on Thursday.
Michael’s mother, Katherine Jackson, publicly disputed Joe’s opposition saying she had no issues with the executors of her son’s estate. Katherine’s lawyer, Adam Streisand, appeared in court on Tuesday and argued that Joe has no legal standing to object to the validity of the will or to the estate executors, because he was excluded from the list of beneficiaries.
But apparently the judges ruling wasn’t good enough for money-hungry Joe Jackson and he has challenged the decision claiming that Michael’s name was forged on the will.
