Michael Jackson Estate to Joe: No, No, No

2/4/2010 7:57 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for Michael Jackson's estate have filed legal papers opposing Joe Jackson's attempt to get his son's UCLA medical records -- records Joe wants in order to file a wrongful death lawsuit.

Michael Jackson and Joe Jackson

Estate lawyers say there are three reasons why Joe is not entitled to medical records.

1. Joe was not a dependent of Michael Jackson and therefore not legally entitled to sue for the wrongful death of his son.

2. Joe has filed his request for medical records in connection with his attempt to get an allowance from the estate, and an allowance has nothing to do with wrongful death.

3. There is a physician-patient privilege that bars Joe from getting the medical records.

No, a parent does not have an automatic right to an independent, adult child's medical records. Only to a minor child's medical records, and then only in certain states. If Michael has designated that his father could have access to his medical records, then Joe would not be suing for the right to see them. He has no right under the law to see the records. And of course his only motivation is MONEY MONEY MONEY.

They were in it for the money    

These attornies are real slick. Sure the Catfish can try and sue for wrongful death, right or wrong, he still is the father. they just dont want anyone coming in and opening that old can of worms. Mamma Jackson cannot do it and since AEG and Sony got a hold of the brothers, they wont do it, Michaels kids are too young. One has nothing to do with the other. I do think here and there, of course Michael supported Joe in a round about way. His problem now is begging it off of Katherine. He's a mans man and don't beg off his own wife. Bet he is sorry nwo for all that cheatin and beatin!

Why is it that 2 numbskulls can waltz into a courthouse and file a claim or claim upon claim and be privvy to every single doc and letters all attorneys and courts plus go to every hearing they have RE Michael Jackson, but Joe cant get nothing, not even 1st base? Something wrong here.

Big Mouth Joe will TELL ALL    

EVEN if Joe could file a lawsuit for wrongful death he makes himself look more GREEDY by doing this!! Murray has NOT even be arrested yet and he is worried about the money! Why is he not beating down the LAPD doors wondering why Murray is still a free man?? Instead he has all this time to keep filing papers for money! I do NOT have a problem if Katherine or the children filed a lawsuit but at least wait till after the criminal trial! It is like he does NOT even care that nothing criminally is happening to Murray! Why is he more worried about how much money he can get over the fact that MURRAY still has not been charged???

Mr. Jackson can't seem to leave well enough alone. He looks for every possible angle and pushes it to the max. He was certainly an embarrassment to MJ and should be one to himself. IMHO he is a dsigusting and odious person. No one should have to suffer with a father like that.

so glad that SOMEBODY is finally saying a big, fat NO! to this pig. he has no right to any money. he's a narcissistic, violent monster. let him rot in the streets. too bad his wife loved her religious cult more than her own children and refused to defend them against his abuse.

Yep pia he did. But you could tell he was lying as sure as the lying evil deceitful tongue wags in his slimy mouth. He just didn't want to answer any questions regarding the autopsy and had been told to deny seeing them.

BUT...I believe that this is all a smokescreen/BS/nonsense...that Joe knows that Michael is alive and has known from the beginning of this scam. That's why he was laughing and doing the thumbs up the very next day while MJ was supposedly on the autopsy table. Actually he did that because the ole fool thought that the MJ death hijinks had been pulled off without a glitch. And I fell for it hook line and sinker...thinking he was just a heartless evil man who could do that the day after a sons death....until I realized why he was really reacting that way.

But that's JMO...just my opinion. It's all to throw everyone off track of the truth.

There is a REASON why Michael didn't want to leave his father anything. He was a horrible man and gave new meaning to the words "slave-driver." He forced those kids to work like dogs, and still keeps after them so the gravy train won't stop. Michael's TALENT was responsible for getting him where he was, not that old moldy creep. He could have done it with ANYONE else representing him.

Wow! If a father doesn't have the right to see the authopsy results of his own son,who the hell has it? I would think a father has all the rights to know what killed his son.
Imagine if Brittany Murphy's mother or that Johnson lady's mother were told, I'm sorry you daughter died,but we won't tell what caused it!Unless they don't tell only when it's a murder case,in which case it makes soooo much sense.Bastards! They killed and don't want to release the details...
