"Thriller" Star Objects to Arbitration

A Los Angele County judge will decide whether Michael Jackson has to go to arbitration in a dispute with German concert promoter Marcel Avram.  The $21 million dispute arose out of Jackson's failure to do two concerts in 1999.  There was a $6.5 million settlement back in 2002, but Avram apparently is claiming some additional damages on grounds not covered in the settlement.  Jackson's lawyers say the star got a full release, and are trying to enjoin Avram's arbitration petition.
