A California appeals court rejected a bid by Michael Jackson's father to challenge the administration of his son's lucrative estate.
A three-justice panel of the California Second District Court of Appeal unanimously affirmed a probate judge's ruling that Joe Jackson didn't have standing to intervene in his son's estate.
A copy of the opinion was not immediately available.
Despite being excluded from his son's 2002 will, Joe Jackson had been seeking to have some control over financial affairs.
