Katherine Jackson's lawyers objected in court Monday to the deals made by the Michael Jackson estate's special administrators with concert promoter AEG Live and merchandising company Bravado.

The lawyer for AEG Live, which promoted Jackson's shows in London, England, told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff that the company has already made many concessions to the estate and could not make more. She suggested the company might walk away from the deals, which would include production of a documentary about Jackson's last months using Jackson rehearsal video.

Howard Weitzman, a lawyer for the special administrators, told the judge the deals were "aggressively negotiated and reflect the exhaustion of all parties on give and take, and greatly benefit the estate."

"I don't believe there is room for more negotiation," Weitzman said.
