Jackson family seeks delay in naming will executor

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Michael Jackson's family reportedly wants a
judge to delay a hearing scheduled for today to designate two men
listed in the singer's will as temporary administrators of his
estate.
A person close to the family says they want time to take a
closer look at Jackson's affairs. The person says the family also
wants to wait and see if another will emerges. Additional time
would also accommodate Jackson's memorial service scheduled for
Tuesday.
The men designated in the five page will to shepherd Jackson's
estate into a private trust are attorney John Branca and music
executive John McClain.
Jackson's mother, Katherine Jackson, was granted some limited
powers over the singer's estate days after his death. But because
Branca and McClain are named as executors in the 2002 will, it's
expected that they would be granted more authority to oversee
Jackson's estate.
In court filings, the estate is estimated to be worth more than
$500 million.
