Do the latest squabbles of the Jackson Family—over Michael Jackson's will and estate—offer any lessons for other people drafting wills or setting up estates? Yes, although as estate attorney Donald David says wryly, "This is not your average American family." Five of the Jacksons, in a letter to the estate's executors, have called the will of
the late pop star "fake, flawed and fraudulent." They claim its' signature is false: That though the document gives Michael's location on the day he signed as L.A., they know him to have been in New York. They accuse the two executors of everything from coercing family matriarch Katherine Jackson, to mishandling business deals, to getting too juicy a cut for themselves from those same deals.
