Michael Jackson's father Joe Jackson has refilled a wrongful death lawsuit against the late singer's doctor on the same day that new song 'Must Too Soon' from the forthcoming posthumous collection 'Michael' was released on iTunes, reports the Los Angeles Times.
Jackson's father refilled a wrongful death lawsuit on Tuesday (30th November 2010) against the doctor charged with his son's death. He also added a Las Vegas pharmacy as a defendant in the case, as their records apparently show that the physician bought a powerful anaesthetic there - the same drug that is blamed for Jackson's death. The lawsuit aims to seek damages from DR CONRAD MURRAY who has pleaded not guilty in the separate case for 'involuntary manslaughter' of the singer. Jackson's father initially filed the case on the first anniversary of his son's death, but a judge advised that the case should be heard in state court. Brian Oxman, JOE JACKSON's attorney said, "This has been a long process and the facts of Michael's death have been way too slow in emerging".
New song 'Much Too Soon' is the 10th and final track on the upcoming album 'Michael', and follows the record's first single 'Hold My Hand', which debuted at No. 84 on the US Hot 100.

LATEST: JACKSON family lawyer Brian Oxman and writer STACY BROWN clashed on TV in America on Tuesday night (07MAR06) when the attorney warned him not to go public with tapes he allegedly has of Jermaine Jackson exposing his brother MICHAEL's problems. Brown is planning an "aggressive" slander suit against Jermaine after the singer rubbished his claims that the pair had embarked on a book project, in which Jackson reportedly promised to talk about brother Michael's alleged drug problems and reveal secrets from his personal life and child molestation trial. And when Brown and Oxman appeared together on US talk show THE BIG IDEA WITH DONNIE DEUTSCH, the two former friends prepared for a legal battle royal. During their heated exchange, Brown, a former Jackson family friend, went public with comments he claimed Oxman had once made to him about not getting paid by the Jacksons - claims the attorney denied, insisting, "I don't discuss the family's business with you." At one point Brown warned, "Brian, you need to watch what you say." Oxman then dismissed Brown's claims he had tapes of conversations of Jermaine Jackson, talking about their book proposal, stating, "I find it offensive that someone goes to someone to say let's write a book together and then the book proposal gets created out of fiction, and then the co-author is disclosing the tapes." The lawyer concluded their heated TV debate by warning Brown, "I don't care what these tapes say, these tapes are under contract with Stacy Brown not to disclose them," prompting Brown to lash out, "Unbelievable... I used to have more respect for you than that."
