Short Takes - James Brown, Paul McCartney, Eagles

A special administrator looking into the situation with James Brown's estate has said that it appears that it is $7 million short. Blame is being placed on ex-trustee David Cannon who has already been ordered to pay back $350,000 to the estate. He has now been told to pay an additional $370,000 plus $30,000 in lawyers fees.

Brown's children continue to try and get all three trustees removed and feel that Cannon is the scapegoat for the bad dealings of the whole group.

The judge also ruled that the attorney generals of South Carolina and Georgia can intervene on behalf of the needy children who are supposed to be receiving money from the "I Feel Good" trust fund.

Finally, the judge did not hear the case for the Houston woman claiming to be Brown's daughter.
