Jackson Gets Extension For Wrongful Death Suit

MICHAEL JACKSON's father has won a deadline extension in his bid to file a wrongful death lawsuit against his son's physician - after his lawyer was injured in a freak fall on the day he was due to submit papers.
Joe Jackson's legal representative, Brian Oxman, initially lodged documents against Dr. Conrad Murray in a California federal court in June (10), seeking unspecified damages in connection with the King of Pop's death.
In the complaint, Jackson alleges Murray withheld vital information from the doctors and emergency service operatives who were trying to save Michael's life on the day he died (25Jun09).
But the suit was returned because of an error and the Jackson patriarch was given until 13 August (10) to amend the papers.
Oxman was making his way down a flight of stairs to hand the new lawsuit to a messenger to submit to court - but he slipped and fell, suffering injuries, reports TMZ.com.
Oxman was granted extra time to submit his brief as a result of his fall.
Details of his injuries had not been revealed as WENN went to press.
Murray is accused of administering a fatal dose of anaesthetic Propofol to his pop star client. He has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

Wonderful!!!! Sue that murderer for everything he has. There's no way in hell he should be practicing medicine!!!! I hope that Joe wins & Murray is unable to get any malpractice insurance. I don't understand why he still has patients.

It's simple, Doctor Conrad Murray should not be able to work in a medical profession. He has been accused of wrongly treating people in the past. He's clumbsy! Very much so to the extent of taking Michael's life..a little too clumbsy if you ask me.
