Statement from the Estate of Michael Jackson about the results of the Quincy Jones Trial
Statement from Howard Weitzman and Zia Modabber, attorneys for The Estate of Michael Jackson:
While the jury denied Quincy Jones $21 million – or more than two-thirds of what he demanded — from The Estate of Michael Jackson, we still believe that giving him millions of dollars that he has no right to receive under his contracts is wrong. This would reinterpret the legal language in, and effectively rewrite, contracts that Mr. Jones lived under for more than three decades, admitted he never read, referred to as “contract, montract,” and told the jurors he didn’t “give a damn” about. Any amount above and beyond what is called for in his contracts is too much and unfair to Michael’s heirs. Although Mr. Jones is portraying this is a victory for artists’ rights, the real artist is Michael Jackson and it is his money Mr. Jones is seeking.
