Joe Jackson Just Wants to Be Treated With Dignity

by at .

Joe Jackson, father of the late Michael Jackson, is feeling disrespected.

His lawyer, Brian Oxman, says his client has not been treated with "dignity and worth" so far by the judge in the Michael Jackson probate case.

Oxman filed papers with a California appeals court, claiming the probate judge was wrong in shutting down Joe's attempt to 86 MJ's executors.

Close friends John Branca and John McClain have been administering MJ's estate at the late icon's request, and as specified in his last, valid will.

Joe's attempts to score cash have been repeatedly struck down by them, as have his attempts to have them removed by the judge in the case.

Joe Jackson: One of the all-time characters.

The trial judge ruled Joe Jackson had no legal standing to object to the duo, since Joe himself was intentionally excluded by MJ as a beneficiary. Rough.

Oxman claims Joe was dependent on his son and should have a right to object to the appointment of men making the financial decisions for the Estate.

Although Joe is alleging various misdeeds by the executors - fraud, embezzlement, whatever he can make up next - he's doing more harm than good.

A lawyer for Michael Jackson's kids - Paris, Prince and Blanket - claims Joe is actually harming them with the "procedural wrangling." Margaret Lodise says Joe only cares about his stake and, therefore, he's "the ultimate dog in the manger."

Ouch. The truth hurts, doesn't it?
