London, March 14 (ANI): Pop star Michael Jackson's lawyers have given the green light for an auction of the singer's personal property, just weeks after they moved the court to stop the sale.
They sued Julien's Auction House earlier this month, claiming that it was not "entitled to retain possession of Michael Jackson's personal property".
The company hit back with the claim that they had already taken Jackson's permission to go ahead with the auction, set for April 21.
However, papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday allow the company to promote the auction until April 3, when the lawsuit is set for hearing.
"They've agreed for us to continue to promote the exhibit and auction," the Daily Express quoted the auction house's founder, Darren Julien, as saying.
He expressed his hope that Jackson would honour the original contract, and let the auction take place as planned.
The sale will feature items from Jackson's personal collections, including his famous rhinestone gloves and the hands of Johnny Depp's movie character Edward Scissorhands, which the singer owned. (ANI)
