Lawyers from MJ Molestation Case Want Money

9/29/2009 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

MIchael jacksonAnother day, another creditor's claim filed against Michael Jackson's estate.

The law firm Mesereau & Yu -- who defended Michael during his molestation trial in 2005 -- filed a claim on Friday against the estate.

In the claim, it says Michael owes the firm $341,452.05 for work done between July of 2005 and February of 2006.

And well worth it ... Michael was acquitted on all 14 charges.

The statute of limitations stops tolling when a creditor makes a legal claim. If the attorneys have demanded or requested payment any time in the interim between the time the services were rendered and now, it would stop the statute from tolling.

I imagine they have sent invoices many times in the interim up until MJs death. Now, it is the proper time to make a creditor's claim from the estate, if no payment was made after one or more properly sent demand for payment.

Diane, you are correct. The statute of limitations for professional services rendered according to a contract has tolled. It's two years in CA.

Michael Jackson was a bigger celerity than Mackenzie Phillips ever was. Most people don't know who she is, or what happened to her, or care, people like gossip about people they have heard of.

91. You haters
Say what you will about Michael Jackson, at least he SHOWED UP
TO COURT to FACE his accusers, Polanski took off running like a thief in the dead of night. And WORSE, what does it say about not only law enforcement, but the entire Hollywood film community that they LET this guy STAY on the run for 30 YEARS, making movies, living his life as he pleased, and where was he caught? GETTING AN AWARD!!! I understand that different countries have different extradition rules,but back in 1993, the LAPD filed a formal request for Scotland Yard to GO GET Michael Jackson and bring him back to the U.S. Radio stations refused to play MJ's music, the media humiliated him and send him to exile.

Whats even more disgusting is how the the media and hollywood are feeling sorry for him, just because he had a tough background.

We're not discussing Polanski on this board go to Polanski thread Polanskis judge reneged on the plea bargain Polanski was smart enough to know he'd been set up just like Michael Jackson.
And he got out of the US and stayed out just like Michael Jackson should have.

Polanski would have his wife Sharon Tate and their unborn child today had the LAPD been doing their job even way back when

Posted at 4:19PM on Sep 29th 2009 by your remarks belong on the Polanski thread not here

This is a straight up jackass post. His dead wife and child have nothing to do with him admittedly raping a child. He also sodomized her. He had a choice and he could've just as easily had consentual sex with an adult woman. The child is now a woman who has said that she told him NO! Stop making excuses for Polanski because you're doing what you accuse MJ fans of doing. Hypocrite.

This is no big deal. I'm sure he was on a payment plan because his lawyer loves him and speaks so highly of Michael. Since he is gone they have to present their bill to the court. I probated both my mother and brother's estate and this is exactly how its done. It is no reflection on the person's ability to pay. They just can't because........they are dead.
