A lawyer for Michael Jackson's former dermatologist says he now has no plans to petition a court for a role in the lives of the singer's three children.

Mark Vincent Kaplan says Dr. Arnold Klein is satisfied now that an attorney has been appointed to oversee the the children's interests.

Kaplan surprised many during a court hearing earlier this month by saying Klein wanted to be involved in the children's lives. A judge ruled that Klein didn't have legal standing to intervene, but told the doctor he could file a motion later if he still had concerns.

Kaplan says the doctor wanted to be sure Jackson's children did not have a show-business upbringing and were afforded a formal education _ things Jackson told Klein he wanted for his children.
