Gone But Not Forgotten: Michael Jackson

From Slate.com:
When a celebrity dies, some fans take it harder than others. Most find ways to grieve—from flowers and tributes at a fallen star’s home to Facebook remembrances. But moving on is more difficult for some. And for those that a Twitter salute isn’t enough, you can always take action—legal action.


In a French court, Michael Jackson fans sued and prevailed against Mr. Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray. Rather than monetary damages, the fans are hoping their new status as victims will allow them access to Michael Jackson's gravesite, which is closed to the public.
