Joe Jackson: I Get No Respect

8/16/2010 7:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Jackson's lawyer claims, his client has not been treated with "dignity and worth" by the judge in the Michael Jackson probate case.

Joe Jackson
Jackson's lawyer, Brian Oxman, filed papers with a California appeals court, claiming the probate judge was wrong in shutting down Joe's attempt to 86 executors John Branca and John McClain.

The trial judge ruled Joe had no legal standing to object to the duo, because Joe himself was intentionally excluded by MJ as a beneficiary under the will.

But Oxman claims Joe was financially dependent on his son and should therefore have a right to object to the appointment of the men who are making financial decisions for the Estate.

Although Joe is alleging various misdeeds on the part of the executors -- including fraud and embezzlement, which the executors strongly deny -- the lawyer for Michael Jackson's kids claim Joe is actually harming them with all the "procedural wrangling."  Margaret Lodise, the kids' lawyer, says Joe only cares about his stake in the Estate and, therefore, he's "the ultimate dog in the manger."

I felt sorry for Michael. After all these years and millions of dollars that were given to Jo by his son you'd think he would've had enough sense to save or invest in something sensible.

The lawyer for Prince, Paris and Blanket is right = Joe is taking from his own grand children! Fighting with the executors of MJ's will costs the estate money in extra lawyer's fees.
Oops - nothing new there! Joe's just out for Joe. Better watch out - he may force PPB on stage yet - and he'll be the "manager"...

Respect must be earned.Joe Jackson has done nothing of late to earn respect.His choices have been very poor;even his choice of legal counsel is poor.

Joe should not have forced his children into show biz so early,or been so forceful with them,but on the other hand if he haven't we most likely wouldn't have had all the great music from them for last several decades.Now you also have the issue of MJ did leave Joe out of his will,and most likely if he wanted his father to have anything he would named him in it.

Pimp Daddy gets as much respect as a pimp daddy should get. The worthless piece of $__t. He should be charged for all the senseless attorney fees the estate loses because of Joe. HE HAS NO STAKE IN THE PROCEEDINGS, HE WAS LEFT OUT OF THE WILL. What other language can they use to get it through his head.
