It's that time of year when many New Jersey families take vacations. A number of children are probably pretty excited to get out to amusement parks and hop on roller coasters and other rides this season.

In the aftermath of Michael Jackson's death, there have been a number of lawsuits and legal claims pursued. From disputes over the custody of his three children, to a wrongful death lawsuit against a concert promoter that is currently underway, to a recent child molestation claim filed against the late king of pop's estate--it seems that fame and controversy continue to follow Michael Jackson even after death.
