*Joe Jackson will have his day in court next month.

California’s Second District Court of Appeal today scheduled Oct. 6 for Michael Jackson’s father to begin arguing that he deserves to receive monthly checks from his late son’s estate.

Michael Jackson’s 2002 will left out Papa Joe, and a ruling after the King of Pop’s 2009 death placed his attorney John Branca and family friend John McClain in charge of his affairs.

Joe Jackson appealed the ruling in November.
