Michael Jackson Doc Sues

9/15/2009 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Arnold Klein has sued Dr. Steven Hoefflin in the Michael Jackson prescription drug saga -- sued him for defamation of character.

Dr. Conrad Murray & Dr. Steven Hoefflin

According to the suit, Dr. Klein claims Dr. Hoefflin told The Sun in the minutes following Jackson's death, "[Dr. Conrad] Murray definitely called Klein because Klein taught him how to administer Propofol ... Murray would have counted on Klein to be the source of Propofol and guide him on its use."

Klein claims Hoefflin's conduct was "willful, fraudulent, malicious, oppressive and reckless" and was done "with the intent to injure and harm Dr. Klein."

UPDATE
: Hoefflin tells TMZ: "They [The Sun] check their facts with an electronic microscope. There is factual evidence that the statements that I made are true. They have in their possession phone records, recordings, documents and other evidence that confirms facts in their stories before they're published."

261. I don't know but I kinda thought Mother Theresa was a pretty
great humanitarian, Albert Schweitzer,Pope John Paul II, Bill Gates, Steven Spielberg, the Dali lama, Mahatma Gandhi, Paul Newman, Andrew Carnegie, Billy Graham and on and on and on weren't all too bad in the humanitarian department.

The Greatest? Gosh so many who could ever decide who was the
GREATEST!?

MR. Michael Jackson amounted’ Thirteen Grammy’s, Thirteen
Guinness
World Records, Two Walk of Fame Stars, Twice in Rock and Roll’s
Hall of Fame, he also’ was a notable Philanthropist and
Humanitarian, with’ 300 Million donated to charities, many assume
closer to 500 Million {this reveals the ever expanding’ fan
devotion’ directed towards Michael’ not hero’ worshiping’
being older than Michael} the entertainer of the Millennium’ is a
gross understatement, neither deity’ divine or notated speechmaking
advocate’ MR. Michael Jackson’s modern day’ act’s of
kindness’ were wealth supported’ so differed’ from “Mother
Teresa” “Abraham Lincoln” or “Mohandas Gandhi” be it 911,
Katrina’ or another, he felt the pain, and opened his wallet, with
special interest’ to children hospitalized {note-worthy, not’
then considered’ news-worthy, he habitually’ visited Children
ill’ in Hospital’s prior to performing onstage’ while touring}
“The King Of Pop’s” charity and financial charity is second to
Not One’ single earthly being, past’ present or future, what
then’ say’ can we do, theirs the “this is it” likeness of
“Michael” and theirs the “Sixty Six foot Statue” of Sam
Houston’ possibly use Michael’s 20% of trust fund’s reserved’
for charities to restore Never-land’ for use’ by Kurt Cameron’s
Camp Firefly’ to continue Michael’s Dream’ of allowing ill’
kid’s and their families a vacation’ honoring “Pied Piper”
Michael’s Peter-pan-ishness, forever’ if justification erects
a’ for the children’ by the people’ statue, so be it, Michael
Jackson’s name will surpass Martin Luther King’s as far as’
schools, roads, streets and holidays, being honorably named’ for
his remembrance.

I think Klein is a part of the devil Mike has to live...
he should help him, help him to go to rehab, advice him and certainly not give him Demerol Propofol and I don't know what?!!
