Katherine Jackson Can Challenge Administrators

9/18/2009 6:51 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The probate judge in the Michael Jackson estate case has ruled Katherine Jackson can challenge the special administrators and not forfeit her position as a beneficiary in Michael's will.

Katherine Jackson

As a result of the ruling, Katherine can now safely challenge special administrators John Branca and John McClain without jeopardizing her position in the will -- she's set to get 40% of the net value of the estate.

The will has a "no contest" clause -- which means any beneficiary who contests the will gets aced out of inheriting anything. But the court has now ruled challenging the special administrators is not a "contest" of the will itself.

Interestingly, the court specifically ruled .... Katherine objecting to the special administrators on grounds there was some sort of "undue influence" imposed on M.J. is not a "contest" under the will.

Chico    

Ratner - anesthesiologist, drug addict (once shot himself with paralyzing drug WHILE anesthesizing someone), primary witness in Lauersen trial, HIStory tour with MJ, "taking down" and "bringing up" with Diprivan/Propofol.

Lauersen - OB/GYN, invitro specialist, insurance fraud, although he was billing insurance for removing cysts, which some say he did, he was also doing invitro to women at the same time, FEDS said he was frauding insurance. Ultimately, Lauersen did 5 years in prison. LOTS of info saying that Lauersen was framed and threatened by Ratner. Before trial, MJ went to court to have his name suppressed from the case.

Mary Jo White/Christine Chung - U.S. Attorneys tried Lauersen case.

Peter Lusk - hedge fund manager, friend of Lauersen's

I want to say something. PM, if I ever doubted you, I am sorry. I now realize that everything you have been telling us from the very beginning was true and totally correct.

I do not have all the puzzle pieces, but in the past day or so, I have come across enough information to never question what information you have.

I will be here as much as I can to follow what information you give us. As a side note, Snow White is Mary Jo.
