Jackson Sues...Again!

Seemingly, instead of writing music, Michael Jackson's new occupation is that of "professional litigant".

Jackson has now decided to sue his former lawyers for conspiring to force him into bankruptcy.

Jackson has accused Los Angeles law firm Ayscough and Marar of conspiring with other lawyers, who represented him in the past, to force him into involuntary bankruptcy.

Jackson also cited claims that his former lawyer, Brent Ayscough, threatened to leak confidential information about him to the press, broke rules of professional conduct and committed acts of negligence and malpractice.

Earlier this year, Ayscough sued Jackson for $216K he claimed that he was owed in unpaid fees.

Jackson is also busy with a $48M lawsuit brought by Darien Dash, the cousin of Damon Dash. Dash claims he has Jackson's signature on a document promising to pay him a 9% fee for arranging financing for a $275M loan in 2004, which is held by Fortress Investments.

Clearly Jackson will have some trouble finding the time to write any more music in the coming months.
