The auction of Michael Jackson's memorabilia has been canceled. "Auctioneer Darren Julien told Reuters the cancellation of the planned April 22-25 sale was the result of an agreement with Jackson, who had filed a lawsuit in March demanding the return of certain items. A public exhibit of the 1,400 lots which opened on Tuesday in Beverly Hills will continue until April 25." [Reuters via The Shophound]
