Judge blocks Joe Jackson's challenge to executors of Michael's estate

Posted on

An L.A. judge has blocked Michael Jackson’s father Joe Jackson’s request for the two executors of the late singer’s estate to be disqualified. The judge ruled that Jackson, who was omitted from Michael’s will, had “no standing” to challenge it. Jackson’s challenge follows his Nov. 6 request to receive a monthly allowance from his son’s estate, which the judge will rule on Dec. 10. Jackson’s former associates John Branca and John McClain were executors of his will and have been administering his estate.
