Joe Jackson Upsets Estate Bosses With Subpoenas For Medical Records

MICHAEL JACKSON's father has launched a bid to seek more information about his son's death, which has infuriated the King of Pop's estate managers.
Joe Jackson has subpoenaed medical records from the UCLA Medical Center because he believes they could contain evidence of foul play in his son's June 2009 death.
His attorney, Brian Oxman, has sent two subpoenas to the UCLA Medical Center, where Jackson was pronounced dead on 25 June, according to TMZ.com.
Oxman is asking for a number of documents, including autopsy reports, photos and assessments.
Joe Jackson insists the whole Jackson clan is behind his latest action because they all believe the medical records will show what was in Jackson's body when he passed, and they believe the information will expose foul play.
But those in charge of the King of Pop's estate are far from happy with the move.
Estate lawyer Howard Weitzman has called the subpoenas "clearly improper" in a letter to Oxman, obtained by TMZ.com.
Weitzman claims the subpoenas violate Jackson's right of privacy and the physician/patient privilege.

Autposy results clearly state that Michael died of PrpofolOD admininistered by another.The level of propofolwas that used in deep anaesthesia.It was also clearly stated that he could not have administeredit himself,Other drugs found were those dr Murray had given throughout the night.-The paramedics should testify. I understand that they said MJ was "flatlined"i.e. dead when they arrived.DR murray insisted he be taken to the hospital and CPR continued.This way he attempted to mix up the real time of death as to the"official" ,.MJ was in fact dead many hrs before officially decleared dead,By his doings dr Murray caused confusion, used his"authority" towards the paramdics,changed his story etc.

Bout time Joe did something to protect his son's name instead of living off of it. I think it is totally appropriate to want to see paperwork about a deceased son. In fact I think it's odd the estate lawyers are against it. Why? I as a parent would want to see paperwork too if my child passed as Michael did. Well played for once, Joe...

To hell with privacy! LAPD seems to be content with the notion that Michael killed himself with prescription drugs, since all of hollywood is doing it. Michael never had any privacy, and what his legacy needs is for his name to be clared of unfounded allegations, justice, if there was foul play, and respect for the good man, father humanitarian he was. Viewing the medical records are a means to an end. Michael is dead and in my opinion, there is no pacifying this loss, but we're just not going to let it go on this great big assumption. when our gut is screaming suspicion.PROVE US WRONG!

I hope the Jackosn family try all they can to find what happened to Michael, and who's behind it - the security video tapes are missing, their son/brother/father is dead from a lethal injection of profonol - who started that drug with Michael? You can bet Michael never knew a thing about that type of drug until someone told him. People did nothing but take take take from Michael while he was on earth and ridiculed him when he did what? No one has proof of anything but accusations - even the justice system accquitted him, and he was hounded 17 years. Pathetic. He was an artist, and very creative, very eccentric - who wouldn't be with not even being able to go to the store without being mobbed, but he never, ever asked or should have been murdered. Now, what is the justice system going to do about that, if anything? Pathetic. Or, if the justice system says there's a possibility of suicide, what exactly was that doctor doing for all those hours while Michael lay dying - Murray admitted to injecting Michael not once, but what - 8-10 times in an about 7-9 hour period? Ludicrious!! Things like this have to stop, especially to our national assets such as artists. I hope Joe never gives up, and that's heartfelt.

FURIOUS!

I'M GLAD SOMEONE IN THAT FAMILY IS FINALLY DOING SOMETHING. HOW CAN THE LAPD SAY THAT MICHAEL KILLED HIMSELF WHEN THE MEDICATION WAS ADMINISTERED TO HIM BY DR. MURRAY AND THE WHOLE STORY DR. MURRAY IS FUMING IS A BUNCH OF LIES. NOTHING MAKES SENSE AND I BELIEVE MICHAEL WAS DEAD LONG BEFORE HE CALLED 911. THIS IS ONE TIME I HAVE RESPECT FOR JOE JACKSON, HE IS FINALLY BEING A FATHER HE SHOULD HAVE BEEN WHEN MICHAEL WAS ALIVE! I THINK THE FANS SHOULD START DOING SOMETHING TO HELP THIS INVESTIGATION ALONG, LIKE STARTING A PETITION AND SENDING IT TO THE LAPD AND MICHAEL'S ATTORNEYS.

Yes, I think it is right to ask for all info in regard to Michaels death.The whole chain of eventsreeks of foul play. I guess the Estate-Bosses aremore interested in their possible financial gains ,and want them asap.,rather in truth.Do not give up.Michael deserves justice.

I would assume that the parents and family members would already have that information. They have a right to it. Bothers me how the whole investigation of the death of Micheal was handled By LAPD initially. A man dies and the LAPD sends one Sargent in, without using proper investigative method ( crime Scene procedure) that is ordinarily used in case of mysterious death. Family makes a statement prior to police findings that "doctor give him overdose of Medication" Folks are allowed to into the household a day after his death.... A week or so later, Then the Coroners office is given the responsibility to take things away from the house, ordinarily a Law enforcement job.. one would assume that Law enforcement would have taken evidence out of the house day one..... Family Thanks LAPD for doing a great Job?I think Joe is accurate with this request! Who killed Micheal Jackson?
