Jackson lawyers line up to be paid

Lawyers working for Michael Jackson's estate lined up in court Thursday to ask a judge to order that their legal fees be paid.

One firm is billing the deceased pop star's estate about $60,000 a month and another invoice given to the judge was for $1.2 million.

Attorney Paul Hoffman said it is money well spent because "several very interesting projects that break new ground" will be announced soon. He offered no other details.

An army of lawyers have battled in probate court since last July over who will control Jackson's legacy, music and property in the wake of his June 25, 2009 death.

    I want to know what is the difference between a beating that occured not too long ago in the news, where a white man invited a white boy over to his yard to have a duel with his son, so his son got beat up, and the father beat that 16 year old senseless, and he tried to use that "stand your ground law," but he was found guilty, and is waiting to be sentenced. What is wrong with this picture???????????
