When pop legend Michael Jackson died Thursday, he left behind multiple lawsuits pending against, and some brought on behalf of, himself and his production company, MJJ Productions.

It's unclear who would represent Jackson's estate. "I imagine this is going to be a very complicated engagement," said one lawyer in litigation with Jackson's company.
