Joe Jackson Denied

A California appeals court rejected a bid by Joe Jackson to challenge the administration of Michael Jackson’s estate.

A three-justice panel of the California Second District Court of Appeal unanimously affirmed a probate judge’s ruling that Joe Jackson didn’t have standing to intervene in his son’s lucrative estate.

The panel questioned several steps taken by Joe Jackson in the case, including withdrawing his request for a monthly stipend.

It also questioned why Jackson’s attorney didn’t mention during a lengthy November hearing that he might file a wrongful death lawsuit. MJ’s estate has earned tens of millions of dollars since the singer’s death last year.
