Federal marshals seized a grand piano and an aged Rolls-Royce on Thursday from the Encino home of entertainer Michael Jackson's parents to satisfy part of a $1.3-million default judgment. "This is a tempest in a teapot," said Brian Oxman, attorney for Joseph and Katherine Jackson.

In addition, only $100,000 of the estimated $4.5 million raised from the musical benefit will ever reach charities.
