Y’all will doubtless recollect my response to Rob’t W. Wood, Esq., and his article “Jackson Estate Says, ‘Beat It, IRS’.”

No? Well, see my blogpost “Letter to the Editor”, 11/19/13.

Now, however, notwithstanding their erstwhile belligerence, or so much thereof as was alleged by Rob’t W. Wood, Esq., above-cited, Messrs. John G. Branca and John McClain, the co-executors of the Estate of the late great King of Pop, seem to be taking the path of less resistance in the face of Com’r. Koskinen’s somewhat shop-soiled myrmidons.

I’ll defer to The Great Dissenter, a/k/a The Judge Who Writes Like a Human Being, s/a/k/a The Foe of the Partitive Genitive, Judge Mark V. Holmes, in Estate of Michael J. Jackson, Deceased, John G. Branca, Co- Executor and John Mcclain, Co-Executor,  Docket No. 17152-13, filed 6/24/14.

“This case is on the Court’s November 17, 2014 trial calendar for Los Angeles, California. Although a very large deficiency is at stake, the Court learned in a call with the parties on June 20, 2014 that it raises mostly valuation questions. The parties are cooperating in informal discovery and want to try to settle as many issues as possible at IRS Appeals. The Court agrees with their suggestion that the case be put on a status-report track….” Order, at p. 1.

Amazing how we bystanders, bloggers, kibitzers and curbstone critics are so wise and so combative, while and so long as we’re not pushing our diñero all-in, eh, Mr. Wood?
