The battle over Michael Jackson's estate continues in Los Angeles Wednesday afternoon, as a judge will determine whether the late entertainer's mother, Katherine, can formally contest the named executors in her son's will -- without compromising her 40 percent stake as a beneficiary.

A no-contest clause in the Thriller singer's prohibits Katherine from opposing the executors, John Branca and John McClain, who presiding Judge Mitchell Beckloff had previously appointed as the estate's temporary administrators. Londell McMillan, Katherine's attorney, said that the King of Pop's mother "deserves a seat at the table" to have a say in decisions involving the estate, despite Michael having not named her -- or any of the Jacksons -- as executors.
