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.

Stay on them Joe.

NONE of the people (including the executors) would be making a dime (let alone 10%) if Joe hadn't beat those kids silly back in the Gary, Indiana days.

Those boys would all be dead now. Look at what flops they are even after they made all that cash JOE'S WAY. Had they been dealing drugs in Gary - THEY WOULD ALL BE DEAD BY NOW.


If Katherine was a good Christian woman (yeah yeah I know - there's no such thing) she would let Joe move back - heck let him live in the garage - with 3 good meals a day and play with the kids.

All the haters out there that thinks Joe would hurt the kids??

Oh grow up.

He's an old man and all he needs is to be happy before he dies.

Like that's a crime???

ok first of all what part of Michael Jackson was NOT an addict do you people don't understand pathology and toxology test results NO OTHER DRUGS FOUND IN THE ENTERTAINERS SYSTEM BESIDES WHAT CAUSED HIS DEATH IN WHICH CONRAD MURRAY administrated by injection

NO OTHER DRUGS

IF HE WAS AN ADDICT HIS SYSTEM WOULD HAVE BEEN SWIMMING IN DRUGS IN EVERY TISSUE SAMPLE............

this is a sad event the FAMILY has RIGHTS for god sake that is his son ...

but it's ok the attorney's get 10% but they can't even come forth and complain about all the crap with murray today ....

i would sue everyone if i was the jackson family

deformation, stress, emotional distress, wrongful death everything under the sun....

michael jackson fans should sue to for the stress .........

tug a war games between law enforcment i have loss my respect for them i will not call them if something happen i will happen my own ....

he can walk into himself what a piece of crap

EXAMPLE OF Fact == ANNIE NICOLE DOCTORS ARE BEING CHARGED WITH FELONIES 23 COUNTS AND GOING TO JAIL FOR A VERY LONG TIME....

MICHAEL JACKSON DOCTORS NO CHARGES BLACK MURRAY GETTING A SLAP ON THE HAND .......

HEY MURRAY THAT 2.5 MILLION DOLLARS YOU STOLE FROM MICHAEL'S HOUSE IS BEING USED TO PAY FOR ALL THIS LEGAL STUFF UMMMMMMMM

LAPD AND THE DA ARE JOKES

HOW ARE YOU GOING TO CONTROL YOUR TOWN IF THEY WONT RESPECT YOU AFTER THIS CASE ........IF YOU DONT GIVE MURRAY AT LEAST 15 TO 20 YEARS PEOPLE WONT RESPECT YOU NOR YOUR SYSTEM .....IF HE ISNT IN JAIL OR COURT MONDAY FANS WILL START A PROTECT.....

IF YOU OR THE JUDGE ALLOW A 25,000.00 BOND FOR MURDER THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS CASE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD AREN'T STUPID A MURDER HOMICIDE CASE DO NOT HAVE LOW BONDS......

MyThoughts    

Joe Jackson is an ass clown in Michaels death, so this tells you what he must have been when he was alive. God, no wonder MJ was scared of his own shadow. Its hard to believe MJ sprang from this dolts loins. He really and truly should be more than ashamed of himself, but I know that will never happen. Sad. Just sad. RIP MJ. Now you are free from this monster.

I don't think this is about money. I believe Joe is trying everything to see his son's medical records.

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

I'm not a fan of Joe, but I know if it were my son I would do whatever it would take to see those records if I thought there was foul play.

Joe must be broke, how pathetic...He humiliated Michael in life, and now he's gotta do it again in death....He must be broker than hell. What happened to that new label he had started...No big talents want to sign with him, wonder why???
