Calif. court to hear Jackson dad's estate appeal

LOS ANGELES (AP) - October 6, 2010

Joe Jackson is appealing the dismissal of his objections to the appointment of two men as administrators of his son's multimillion dollar estate.

Jackson's attorney claims the judge overseeing the estate case should have allowed him to argue against granting control to attorney John Branca and longtime Jackson family friend John McClain.

Attorneys for Michael Jackson's estate have noted that the judge ruled that the Jackson family patriarch had no standing to intervene. The singer omitted his father from his 2002 will.

Arguments in the elder Jackson's appeal are scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in Los Angeles.
