Jackson Physician Points The Finger At Skin Doctor

MICHAEL JACKSON's embattled physician CONRAD MURRAY is attempting to drag the King of Pop's former skin doctor into the civil law case filed against him by JOE JACKSON, insisting he should be on trial too.
Murray claims Dr. Arnold Klein is at least partly to blame for the singer's death and should be a defendant in family patriarch Joe's wrongful death lawsuit.
In legal papers filed on Wednesday (15Sep10) and obtained by TMZ.com, Murray challenges Joe Jackson's decision not to name Dr. Klein as one of the physicians allegedly responsible for his son's death.
Murray stands accused of administering the fatal dose of anaesthetic Propofol which killed Michael Jackson last summer (Jun09). He has pleaded not guilty to any wrongdoing.
In his new suit, Dr. Murray also takes aim at seven other physicians he claims were providing Jackson with medications at or near the time of his death.
Attorneys for the doctor are also seeking the dismissal of the wrongful death lawsuit.
In the documents they ask a judge to throw the case out on the basis that Jackson’s father, Joe Jackson, did not have the legal right to file suit on grounds that he’s not a beneficiary of the estate.
Jackson sued Murray in federal court on the first anniversary of his son’s death.

It will only be a little while longer, but the mystery is starting to unraval and people will begin naming names or they will suffer dearly... Just a little while longer, Michael will get justice.As for Joe's filing I agree what in the heck does it have to do with the fact that he is not a beneficiary of the estate.. Man they are working overtime with the Smoke and Mirrors.....

It would seem logical that Joe has the right to sue anybody he wants,and in this case, he is trying to fight for his son..........The problem is that California law won't let him because he is not in the will......Why they have this law , I really don't know.........It wil be very difficult for Joe to get something done...........

I THINK THAT LAW IS VERY, VERY STUPID, IT SHOULD'NT MATTER IF JOE IS NOT A BENEFICIARY, HE'S STILL MICHAEL FATHER AND SHOULD BE ABLE TO SUE ANYONE HE WANTS FOR THE WRONGFUL DEATH OF HIS SON, JUST BECAUSE HE'S NOT A BENEFICIARY DOES'NT MEAN THAT HE DOES'NT MISS, OR STILL HAVE LOVE FOR HIS SON.

Oh my God! If Califonia law wouldnt allow Joe to sue Doctors or anyone involved because he is not part of the will, then something is seriously wrong with its law makers. I thought any one has the right to sue for any cause of denial of someone's right to life which is basically granted to all humanbeings through Human rights code. The fact that Joe has blood relation with Michael, let the alone him being his father, why would the law not see things clearly that way? I think in Dr. Murray lawyer's vocubulary, the words justice and right to life have changed their meanings

That low-life Murray wont take responsibility or apologize, but has the nerves to point fingers at the other Dr.s like he did at Michael. Remember he said he left the room & Michael took the propofol himself. I hope that Murray & klein both pay. I have a feeling Klein probably administered the propofol to Michael in the past. That disgusting man don't know a thing about friendship. The children will probably be scarred for life thinking that Klein was Michael's best friend, then seeing him betray their father after his death with the homosexual lies. They're gonna have some serious trust issues, but who can blame them with all the hell their father went through.

Conrad Murray is just trying to save his ass along with bringing others into the mix which is as I stated in other posts. All of the doctors who gave MJ propofol should be getting ready to sit in the defendants seat right along with all of the pharmacists who gave MJ this surgery room drug. They all should be getting ready to face some heat and heavy questioning. It doesn't matter how much money is in your bank account Doctor's and pharmacist need to be doing their jobs professionally. They are dealing with peoples lives and all of the doctors and pharmacists who are envolved in this helped to kill MJ by continuously supplying him with lethal drugs. They should all be getting ready to sit right beside Murray in the courtroom.Justice for Michael!

Klein and Conrad - put them in a room together with some Propofol and needles and let them administer to each other. What trash! Poor Michael was way too trusting of that filth. Everyone says he was paranoid - gee, I wonder why? They're both murderers. May they soon hold hands in hell!!!
