An L.A. judge ruled in favor of friends of Michael Jackson whom he had named as administrators of his estate Monday. Jackson's 2002 will made John Branca and John McClain executors of his estate. His mother Katherine is the estate's beneficiary and is named as guardian of his three children. The judge denied Katherine's request to be named a co-executor of the will. A further hearing will be held in August. Jackson's estate is said to be worth a half-billion dollars. (Photo: WENN)
