    03/06/2013 at 08:30 am in department 5 at 111 North Hill Street, Los Angeles, CA 90012
    DETERMINE OWNERSHIP (PC 850)


    Details :


    PRIOR ORDERS:

    Petn filed 1/28/13

    REVIEWED FROM IMAGED FILE ONLY

    OTHER CASES:
    BS 132820 & SC 114598 (DeMann Entertainment, Inc. v. John Branca as exr, John McClain, et al.)

    SUMMARY:
    Petnrs are co-exrs; d/d 6/25/09; ltrs 11/10/09
    30-day ntc/copy ok (except see notes below)

    FACTS: Qadree El-Amin claims to be a member of, and have an ownership interest in, The Michael Jackson Company, LLC (the "Company"). There may be other Doe Respondents making a similar claim. The Company is a single-member Delaware LLC whose sole member as of 6/25/09 was decd. Respondent has not provided exrs with any credible evidence to support the claim.

    MATTERS TO CLEAR:
    A) No psl svc (30-day ntc/copy) on Qadree El-Amin

    RELIEF:
    1) JTD estate is sole member and owner of the Company and that no other person has an interest in the Company

    PA COMMENTS: Continue for ntc and defer pending anticipated response

    pshirreffs@lasuperiorcourt.org
    PS 3/1/13
    RECOMMENDED DISPOSITION: CONT TO 4/10/13 (PS)

    -----------------------------------

    Meaning : Qadree El-Amin claims to have ownership interest Michael Jackson Company. Estate says Michael was the only owner.

    Seems to be a bogus claim against MJ Estate.

    This is the first time I heard of Qadree El-Amin and had to do some search of him?
    He got married in NL and I fond this:
    While he is largely recognized for his phenomenal success with Boyz II Men, the El-Amin stamp extends far beyond the popular 90's boy band. Through his Southpaw Entertainment Company, he has also served as the Midas touch manager to global superstars Michael Jackson, Vanessa Williams, Janet Jackson, Teddy Riley & Blackstreet, Deborah Cox, Lou Bega and several other notables. He has also interacted closely with several notable music industry executives, including Clive Davis, L.A. Reid, Jimmy Iovine and Tommy Mottola.

    I assumed determine the ownership was about Tohme giving away MJ's art.

    No it is not. If they can successfully void Tohme's Power of Attorney's they would get the art. They don't need a separate action for it.

    There will be a lot hearings before there's a decision in Tohme's case. The 3/13 hearing could be about him. We will see as they update probate notes before it.

Decd assigned to petnr a 7 1/2% interest in and to all royalties and other amounts payable or o/w accruing to or fbo decd, excluding mechanical royalties, from the exploitation of certain albums and recordings.

    On 12/8/10, the court entered an order expressly finding that decd has assigned ot petnr a 7 1/2% interest in and to all royalties and other amounts payable or otherwise accurding to or fbo decd, excluding mechanical royalties, from the exploiation of the subject albums and recordings.

    From what I see , Richard Arons did file late, but was granted his claim on 12/8/2010 .. He is saying he hasn't been paid yet all that is due. He now wants double the amount + interest to deter future conduct of the same from the Estate

    Seems to be similar than DeMann case as he too is seeking unpaid royalties and he too was MJ's manager during J5 and 5 solo albums. How many managers MJ had during that time?

    What is it with these people, isn't sony who pays royalties?

    TRUSTS & ESTATES PRIOR CONTRACTUAL RIGHTS
    Richard Arons, the client, was Michael Jackson’s manager on the last five Jackson 5 albums and first five solo albums, including “Thriller,” the best-selling album of all time, and “Off the Wall,” also ranked among the best-selling. He is contractually entitled to royalties for these albums in perpetuity, and has received royalties for these albums for past 40 years. It was therefore surprising when the executors of the estate failed to give him notice of the probate in time for Mr. Arons to file his claim. In probate, claims filed beyond a very short cutoff are permanently barred, and the executors in this case vigorously opposed all other late-filed claims as well as the claims of other managers. It would have been difficult, moreover, for Mr. Arons to prove he could not otherwise have known of the probate in time to file his claim, given the vast amount of media coverage following Michael’s death. When Mr. Arons submitted his petition for leave to file a late claim or for alternative relief, he was ridiculed in the press. TMZ’s headline was “My Dog Ate My Creditor Claim.”
    The probate court, however, was persuaded otherwise, specifically finding that the royalty rights had in fact been assigned to Mr. Arons many years prior, and that, therefore, he was not a creditor of the estate subject to the usual claim file requirements. His contractual rights, in other words, survived the probate process, notwithstanding the statutory restrictions. This is of substantial benefit to Mr. Arons since sales of Jackson’s albums are now better than ever. In the year following Jackson’s death, his estate generated revenues of more than $1 Billion, as he became the first artist in history to have four of the top 20 best selling albums in a single year, with 20 of his albums making it into the top 40. ■
