Jackson Lawyer Fears Criminal Trial Against Doctor Is Two Years Away

JOE JACKSON's lawyer has revealed he's speeding up plans to file a wrongful death suit against MICHAEL JACKSON's doctor after learning the criminal case against the physician could be two years away.
Brian Oxman sent Dr. Conrad Murray notice of his client's legal plans in March (10) and now hopes to file suit against him on Friday (25Jun10) - on the first anniversary of the King of Pop's death.
The attorney says, "We're hearing that the criminal trial may not take place until 2012."
Oxman fears Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial will drag on much longer than expected.
He adds, "If you take the Anna Nicole Smith case as a road map, that has not happened and she died in 2007... The wrongful death case will do what the criminal case will not do.
"Joe Jackson is looking for justice for Michael... He wants to know what happened to his son, why it happened."
Murray is accused of administering a fatal dose of anaesthetic Propofol to the pop star a year ago (25Jun09). He has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter.

WHY does this need to get dragged out?! It did not take him that long to induce the fatal injection that took the life of the King of Pop!!!! There is nothing to fear but fear itself, If greedy Murray was doing the Legal and right thing, he would not be afraid of anything neglegent, but the fact that he is in fear means something.

why will it take so long to procercute him. for the charges? he was giving the does a year ago. and was not charged until dec. of the same year. now he is out on bail and nothing has been done about this, overdose, I am telling u that the man did illegally give him the drug that ended his life. Now I want to back this court with a boycott. until justice is serverd to the people of the state of calf. He is still alowed to practice. this is a injustice. He has done harm, resulting in death. what kind of Justice for black on black crime, they are alowing him to got scott free. do u relize it is murder? demand Justice. with non-violent marches just as Martin L. King did until. the mast of people or sattisfied. and he is put behind bars
