Michael's father has filed an appeal, and arguments will be heard today in court. The judge, who dismissed Joe Jackson's objections, said that Jackson "did not have standing to intervene in the case."

Brian Oxman, Joe's lawyer, will reportedly challenge the validity of Michael Jackson's 2002 will ... a document that clearly omitted his father from receiving money.

Katherine Jackson, as well as Michael's three children, are the primary beneficiaries of the estate.
