Five Michael Jackson fans have won damages after a French court agreed they had suffered "emotional damage" after the superstar's death.
The fans were awarded the symbolic sum of one Euro each Tuesday, according to Agence France-Presse (AFP).
The group were part of a larger case of 34 fans who had sued Conrad Murray, Jackson's doctor.
Murray was jailed over the singer's death in 2011.
The plaintiffs, two from France, two from Switzerland and one from Belgium now hope their status of victims will help them with their attempts to gain access to Jackson's grave, which is private.
