Dead celebrity lawyer profiled by near-dead TV journalists

Tue Jun 22, 2010 @ 08:52AM PST

It's been awhile since we checked in on Mark Roesler, foremost attorney to the deceased stars, who has made a great living helping families of the dead and famous exploit rights of publicity. Roesler explained his only-semi-creepy business to the elderly "60 Minutes" team this weekend (in a segment that originally aired in September). Good timing for the rebroadcast, considering the news that Michael Jackson has earned about $1 billion in the year since he died.
