The stolen Michael Jackson Estate
“John E. Schreiber, an attorney for Katherine Jackson, said, “Frankly, Mrs. Jackson has concerns about handing over the keys to the kingdom.”
Branca had a 5 percent interest in Sony/ATV Music Publishing in September 2005, according to Uniform Commercial Code filings in New York, but his interest was terminated in December 2007.
Branca also was a trustee in MJ Publishing Trust, which held Jackson’s 50-percent stake, but is not believed to be any longer, said John Schreiber, a lawyer for Katherine Jackson.
Her lawyers had argued in court that Katherine Jackson needed to be special administrator of the estate to be able to determine if Branca and McClain had other dealings with Jackson or his partners.”
