Joe Jackson Appealing Court Decision Over ‘No Right To Object’ To Michael Jackson’s Will

Joe Jackson, father of the late King of Pop Michael Jackson is appealing a court decision which says that he has no right to object to the executors of his son’s will. Joe’s lawyer Brian Oxman filed papers at the 2nd District Court of Appeals in California last week, objecting to the decision made by the Probate Court in November 2009. Joe, who had objected to executors John Branca and John McClain, accusing them of fraud and embezzlement, which the pair strongly deny, was told at a previous hearing he could not make any complaints because he was intentionally left out of his late son’s will. According to TMZ, Joe’s appeal alleges that he was denied “due process in not according him a hearing where he could present evidence of his standing.” Legal representatives for Joe Jackson also argued that he was financially dependant on his son and should therefore have a right to object to the appointment of the men who are making financial decisions for the estate. However, Margaret Lodise, the lawyer for Michael Jackson’s children, claims Joe only cares about his stake in the estate, describing him as “the ultimate dog in the manger.”
