March 25, 2004|From Reuters

Michael Jackson is suing a New Jersey man for more than $10 million, claiming he is illegally selling private property belonging to the beleaguered pop star and his famous family on the Internet.

The lawsuit claims that Henry Vaccaro obtained letters, pictures, song lyrics and other items belonging to Jackson through a bankruptcy sale involving the entertainer's parents and has no right to sell them.

The lawsuit, filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles, seeks at least $10 million for copyright infringement and violation of privacy rights, among other claims.
