Jackson Re-files Wrongful Death Suit

MICHAEL JACKSON's father has re-filed his wrongful death lawsuit against his son's embattled physician DR. CONRAD MURRAY, alleging the medic staged an intervention with the pop star just one week before he died.
Joe Jackson's initial attempt to seek unspecified damages over the King of Pop's June 2009 death was rejected in June (10) because of an error in court documents.
He was given until 13 August (10) to amend the papers, but won a deadline extension after his legal representative Brian Oxman was injured in a freak fall.
Now the patriarch has successfully lodged his complaint - released days after a judge postponed Murrary's premilinary hearing until the New Year, which will determine if he will face a trial for administering the anaesthetic that killed the King of Pop.
The documents, obtained by TMZ.com, allege Murray and concert promoters AEG Live staged a "drug intervention" at his son's home on 18 June, 2009, intended to get him to adhere to Murray's drug regimen so he could get more sleep.
Jackson claims AEG bosses were upset the singer was missing rehearsals for his doomed This Is It concerts because of medication prescribed by other doctors, including dermatologist Arnold Klein.
The suit claims AEG bosses demanded the singer "stop seeing Dr. Arnold Klein and stop taking the drugs Klein gave to him," adding they wanted Michael to "take only the medications being given to him by Conrad Murray".
Joe Jackson has previously accused Murray of withholding vital information from the doctors and emergency service operatives who were trying to save Michael's life on the day he died.
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 and is awaiting a preliminary hearing on 4 January (11) to see if he will face trial.

No matter what people think of Joe (just like they thought ill of Michael), he has a right to know what happened to his son. I do believe AEG, $ONY, and several of Michael's "friends" were involved in his death & Joe HAS A RIGHT TO KNOW WHO ENABLED HIS SON'S ADDICTION. Joe may have been cruel & harsh but he loved his children and wanted the best for them. It isn't just about money. It's about doing what's right & Joe deserves SUPPORT not ridicule. To "Bhodi" f**k YOU & STOP COMMENTING ON MJ-RELATED STORIES. GET A LIFENAMASTE YOURSELF & GO TO HELL, YOU JUDGMENTAL PSYCHOGO TO HELL "BHODI"!!!!

Mr Joe Jackson has any right to sue anyone he likes.I am wondering about why would the Firm your working for in this case A E G have so much Power over you to tell you what Doctor to use.Where is there free will ? I also wonder why Michael Jackson trusted A E G to take charge of his Medical needs?? No Boss in the wold will tell me What Doctor to use or ask me Why didn't you call off . Nobody is NO SLAVE UNLESS YOU LET THEM !! THEN TAKE THIS JOB AND SHOVE IT. Who was checking up on Michael as a Friend or Manager ?? Why wasn't there a Respiratory or any EKG machine There and available ??? And There is sooooo much out there to revive a Heart.This is Michael Jackson we are Talking about. THE MAN!!! I really do not get the whole Thing !!!What eles upsets me is 911 Call. I would of Freaked out and screamed get you asses here quick Michael Jackson the singer needs help.The 911 Call sounded like one of my past Bussness meetings with former Bosses boring and Formal.Are they all Taking something??? Me, I am a shy person but oh boy do not get me going I kick Butt.Really I do not get it I just know Michael Jackson shouldn't of Died. Mister Joe Jackson you always dress so sharp, why don't you make your own clothing men's line? Then you would make enough money that would last you forever.

I truely believe there were others than Murray involved in this. Joe Jackson has the right to know what happened to Michael-he is his father. AEG and Sony and whoever else was involved need to definantly be held accountable for this! Michael knew someone wanted him gone! How did the propofalget into his stomach contents? Someone had to put it there and I don't believe Michael did it himself! Maybe with the wrongful death suit the truth of what really happened will come out!! Why did AEG and Sony think they had the right to tell Michael what to do and what doctors to see? Someone flat out killed him! Murray was in on it and he is guilty as heck but there was someone else there or several someone elses there that night! Murray stated that when he found Michael he was flat on his back, arms out stretched to his sides and his head tilted back with his eyes and mouth open! That tells me that someone held him down and put that stuff down his throut!! I really hope that this suit will finally have the all the truth come to light and all those responsible will be discovered and brought to justice! Poor Michael! Only he and those who were there that night really know what happened-he had to be terrified with no one to help him that night/morning! My heart still aches and can't get any closure until this is resolved! JUSTICE4MICHAEL!!! LOVE YOU MORE!!

Joe Jackson: You do whatever you have to do to reveal the truth & get compensated for your pain & suffering. I hope all of those involved pay dearly for their part in Michael's death. Micheal suffered a great deal. It's really sad because he was such a beautiful person. I still wish that God would turn back time so that he can be saved.

to "SitYourAssDownUsher". everything u said about Joe is SO RIGHT. i cant stand people that criticize him like they do as if he was evil and a monster. JOE IS MICHALES FATHERRRR!!!!!!!! please. understand that once and for all. and JOSEPH ADORES MICHAEL. and he was harsh on him JUST BECAUSE OF SO MUCH LOVE. he loved mike to the EXTREME and being harsh on him means he WANTED THE EXTREME BEST OUT OF HIM. because HE LOVED HIM. i dont understand how can people not see that thats SO CLEAR. i just commented on another post saying something about this subject too. you can REALLY TELL that he is SO PROUD OF HIS SON!!! how can people say its FOR THE MONEY. it makes me SICK.

He should be suing Arnold Klein too and the other Dr's that gave Michael drugs. Just like in the Anna Nicole Smith case, 2 Dr's and her BF lawyer Howard Stern are now on trial. We'll see how that turns out!

The following comment you are about to look upon your are the sayings of a Bodhisattva written down by his disciple.What a mess, what a mess. And it will become more a mess as the plot tickens in this ever unfolding drama. Clearly was Jackson was overmedicaded and full of all kinds of drugs. No matter how healthy he was according to the autopsy. The life he lived was not healthy and doomed to fail one day. This could have happend 18 years ago. With and after the Jordy Chanlder allegations. Way back then he took way to many medications. It was only matter of time. Do the math and find out this whole mess was only the kind of mess where Michael Jackson could have gotten himslef in to. I don't by it anymore. I am starting to believe that the King Of Pop just simply died by an od caused only by himself. Yes, that at the time idiot docter gave it. But Michael wanted that crap. Despite all the garbage that was in his body. If the other sleeppills, marihuana, and painkillers and antidepressive,that he took didn't work for a good night sleep. That means that your body is highly tolerance after years of other garbagemedicine abuse. You don't od by nothing. You have to be severe in a hallucinatic dreamworld. Caused by years of drugabuse. That's how you use reality and start using heavier medicine. Like that wacko choice of using propofol to go to sleep. I am afraid a lot of fans are going to dissapointed. No manslaugter, no murder, no wrongfull deathcrap. Just a od by someone who caused it on himself.Ohm shanti.
