Jackson's Dad Wants to Sue Over Death Photos

2/5/2010 8:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonJoe Jackson has just filed legal docs asking a court to acknowledge Michael Jackson's family has a right to sue news outlets that published photos of Michael Jackson dead.

Joe Jackson's lawyer, Brian Oxman, filed papers with the court in the Michael Jackson estate case, claiming there is legal precedent for a family suing for invasion of privacy when such photos are published.

Although the legal docs don't state which photos he intends to sue over, "Entertainment Tonight" aired a photo of Jackson -- whom paramedics believed was already dead -- as he was taken into an ambulance from his home.

Oxman is trying to get the estate court judge to allow him access to medical records as a prelude for filing such a case.

This idiot is doing everything humanly possibe to get some kind of financial gain off his son's death! Build a bridge and get over it Joe, Michael left you nothing for a reason. Maybe you should reflect on what those reason are instead of making yourself look like an idiot tring to find ways to cash in on his death!

Joe Jackson suing someone is going to continue until he's dead - he lost his meal ticket when Michael died and now wants a way to get money. he's a piece of $hit

Joe Jackson needs to get a life and quit trying to profit off of his sons death. What a loser!!! He didn't get any of Micheals money when he was alive so why does he think that hes entitled to it now??

MJ LOVED THE WORLD WITH ALL HIS HEART, it was an UNCONDITIONAL LOVE and he really wanted to HEAL IT, STOP WARS and DESTRUCTION and have people find a common ground IN LOVE and GOODNESS and SHARING !

He was a great man.

People he cared for abused his trust & deceived him, his father abused him verbally and physically; and, worst of all the media/press raped and stripped him of his dignity publicly and hounded him mercilessly.

And through it all he SMILED!

I wonder how many of us would withstand the same introspection into our lives and how we would handle the pain. Before we cast stones at MJ, we should imagine ourselves in his life and ask ourselves how would we manage it?

Only THOSE WITH NO SIN CAN JUDGE him, not us.


Michael, you were too good for this world, for the people here, for the decadence of the community around us. You are finally up with the angels, where you belong, may you RIP ! We will do our best to CARRY ON YOUR LOVE and SELFLESSNESS and teach it to our little ones.

Yes, I think that death photo of MJ is fake as fake can be! Why does a dead man have a vein in his forehead, plus in that photo MJ looks younger and darker.

Something in the milk is not clean!

Do your thing Papa Joe.

This guy is nuts!!! As a medical record administrator, if the right people are involved in the decision-making, he has no chance in hell!

Once again he is trying to make money off his dead son, whom he did not care about him in the first place.

He is beyond nuts!!!
