On Tuesday, May 5, 2020, a California appeals court overturned most of a 2017 jury verdict awarding Jones $9.4 million from the Michael Jackson estate. A jury had granted Jones the sum for the use of Jackson hits he produced that appeared in the concert film “This Is It” and Cirque du Soleil shows. But California's 2nd District Court of Appeal ruled that the jury misinterpreted a contract and took away some $6.9 million that jurors had said Jones was owed. (AP Photo)
