Joe Jackson Lawsuit

Michael Jackson's father Joe Jackson is in the news again, as one year after the death of his superstar son Joe is filing a wrongful death lawsuit against his sons personal "physician" Conrad Murray.

Conrad Murray has been widely blamed for his seemingly unethical treatment of Michael Jackson, especially his willingness to give MJ propofol, the extremely strong sedative that us usually only used to anesthetize patients before surgery, but Jackson used simply to help himself sleep.

Michael had been preparing his comeback tour when he died, amid concerns about his health that seemed to have been deteriorating for years.

One year after Michael Jackson's death at age 50, his father, Joe Jackson, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against his son's personal physician. The L.A. County Coroner's office found that the pop icon had high levels of propofol, a strong anesthetic used during surgery, in his body when he died June 25, 2009, at his rented Holmby Hills mansion. L.A. prosecutors charged his doctor, Conrad Murray, with giving him the drug. Murray has denied any wrongdoing. In the lawsuit, Joe Jackson accuses Murray of professional negligence and alleges that he tried to conceal his administration of drugs to the King of Pop after his death.
