Katherine Jackson Requests Audit of Her Deceased Son's Estate

UnknownKatherine Jackson's lawyers submitted legal documents aimed at performing an extensive audit of Michael Jackson's estate. Her lawyer, Perry Sanders, expressed that they would like to see the details of where the money is going because the benficiaires should be able to see what their money is paying for. 

The legal documents request that ""...representatives John Branca, John McClain and counsel for the estate of Michael Jackson produce for inspection and audit all supporting documents for the Second Account Current and Report of Status of Administration and Petition....'"

Lawyers for Michael Jackson's estate object to the request because it is vague and ambiguous.  "all supporting documents" could include many confidential documents.  Most of the contracts that the estate has entered into are sealed because they contain trade secrets or other privileged information. 

Judge Mitchell Beckloff will rule on what documents the estate should hand over to Katherine Jackson.
