Michael Jackson estate appeal set
Michael Jackson's father Joe will appear in court next month to argue he deserves a role in his son's estate.
A California appeals court has scheduled a hearing for Joe Jackson on October 6.
Michael Jackson's 2002 will omitted his father.
A ruling after the 2009 death of the pop star placed his attorney John Branca and family friend John McClain in charge of his affairs.
Joe Jackson appealed the ruling in November.
Michael Jackson's estate has earned tens of millions of dollars since the singer's death at age 50.
