On Michael Jackson overload yet? If not, start here with my summary of what's transpired with the Michael Jackson estate so far. And here are the latest updates:
First, earlier this week, Michael's mother, Katherine, and her lawyers were in court asking the judge for permission to review key documents relating to the estate, including the contract between Jackson and the concert promoter for his recent planned tour.
The judge previously followed Jackson's's will -- at least on a temporary basis -- and denied Katherine's permission to serve as estate executor. He allowed an attorney and music executive to serve in that capacity until a court hearing scheduled for August 3, to decide who would be the permanent executors.
