MJ's Mom 'Seriously Considering' Suing Murray

11/17/2009 4:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Katherine Jackson's attorney tells TMZ Michael Jackson's mom is "seriously considering" filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray.

MJ's Mom Suing Murray

Adam Streisand, who scored a victory for Katherine last week in the estate case, tells TMZ the case would be filed on behalf of Katherine and Michael's three children. But Streisand adds, the biggest factor against filing suit is that Murray is asset-challenged -- i.e., he can't even pay his child support.

Streisand said he's actually rooting for Dr. Murray to file a claim for wages against AEG, adding "At least then we'd have some money to take from him."

As we first reported, Murray may sue AEG for $300,000 for the two months he "treated" MJ.

LET MURRAY SUE AEG AND THEN KATHERINE SUE MURRAY. SOUNDS LIKE A PLAN! LOOK AT IT THIS WAY, RON GOLMAN'S DAD SUED OJ FOR WRONGFUL DEATH AND WON MILLIOS EVEN THOUGH OJ DIDN'T HAVE IT BUT IT KEPT HIS LIFE MISERABLE AND NOW LOOK AT HIM BROKE AND IN JAIL. WHAT COMES AROUND GOES AROUND!

They were in it for the money    

I think Katherine needs to cut these ties with AEG and start suing them as well. they contributed to this by hiring Murray.
I dont think this will float only because the guy has nothing and they made tons of money already -when you sue for wrongful death you sort of have to show you are in dire need because the one who died supported you. this aint the case here. She cant get nothing otu of him except his conviction when he's sent to prison.
The Jacksons should have NEVER got into the AEG thing. I blame Jermaine and his friend Thome. Those people basicially sacked them in good.

If Murray sues AEG, that will prove he considered himself hired by them, in which case they can sue him for killing the star they were employing him to keep alive. Because the death was not caused by pure accident, it was caused by Murray not knowing what he was doing in his capacity as a doctor.

If Murray wasnt so money hungry, he would have told Michael no. Michael's life should have been more important to him than money. Katherine should sue Dr. Murray because if he really was a caring doctor he would have referred Michael to a sleep clinic.

17. At the end of the day, I doubt it's about the money. It's about finding some sort of justice for the death of her son. Michael Jackson wasn't a street junkie; I'm not even so sure he was a prescription drug addict - the stories have been so speculative and sensationalized. Many people have drugs in their homes left over from surgeries, for chronic pain, etc. Nonetheless, Michael did not inject himself, Conrad Murray did, many times that night and then dealt the final fatal blow. And the other doctors that treated him, they knowingly and willingly overprescribed, overtreated and over-procedured Michael all for the almighty dollar, debasing the value of a human life. You go Katherine and do what you feel is best for yourself and Michael's children. Most of us would do the same if it was our family member.

AEG cant sue anyone. They didnt check this guys credentials. Tohmme was in charge of handling Michael SUE HIM! I know, They can sue Michaels Estate because he is always blamed for everything anyway.

Thanks, Irene, the same to you!

I think AEG can sue Murray. This should is equivalent to them hiring him as a chauffeur, and he drives MJ over a cliff because he didn't have the brakes repaired although he knew they were broken. Or better, he tried to fix a crack in the gas tank with duct tape and alas, petrol leaked out and the car exploded. Yes, I think they can sue him for that.
