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.

Not sure what Joe Jackson is up to but it's being spurred on by his attorney(s). Very odd. Curious to know if he's doing any of his antics on behalf of the family or if his lawyer is actually the greedy one.

i dont come here everyday so im not sure what youre on about dude but here it goes,

funny enough i have been to the mortuary all to often as of late. seen a dead person, yes many times.
even dealt with propofol, very recently.
resporatory failure too
icu. life . death, i know it well.

now look at the tube,is it in his mouth or on his chin?
now look at his forhead there is a frown, and a large vein bulging out.
dead people dont have bulging veins. facts.
i even had an EMT here in california look at this and say...that looks a bit off to me.
so riddle me this, why cant you see ? what many others see?

the person in that picture also had swellen of the facial area as if they had been hit in the face i guess that would explain blood on a shirt that someone last night was night real but it was look at the nose and cheeks of the person in the picture and it was indeed michael ..... there are also more pictures that was taken that was sold oversea's by workers at the hospital yeah alot of stuff will come out now ....... it is a joke the way they are handling this case again it comes down to the suppose to be estate attorney's that suppose to be protecting him michael even in death and the estate of meaning his flesh and blood his whole family they are blood relatives they have rights to anything michael and i dont see how a judge or attorney is getting away with this crap.......something is wrong with this picture when the person that killed michael can walk into a court of law instead of a police station and turn himself in when he is someone blamed for the homicide of a person how can this be ...... why would the attorney of a killer be able to strike a deal like this.... annie nicole killers aint getting NO deal they will have to face every charge put forth 23 felonies reckless behavior, medically i don't understand how murray is still allowed to practice is this a deal to shouldn't he be suspended from working until this case is heard .... somthing aint right ..... to many if 's and not enough what's to many why's and not enough how's

something is not right

annie nicole doctor's charges
and many of them ....
that will carry alot of time fines and suits

michael jackson doctors nothing no charges dont you think if he was an addict his doctors should be charged with the same things Annie Nicoles doctors are being charged with supplying an addict resckless conduct and many many more .........

come on

michael jackson is getting a raw deal like he has always gotten

all the lies LAPD AND DA spread on him all those years and set him up the way they did .... right now they are putting the icing on the cake ........... sad thing sad case .........

Joe Jackson is a pathetic rotting flesh sack - a waste of air. There's nothing he wouldn't do to make money off of his son, dead or alive.

My advice to Joe Jackson is to get rid of his pathetic attorney.
He's not giving you the right advice, Joe.

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???

I don't think this whole thing with Papa Joe is all about money. Let's remember, Michael said Joe abused him, but he loved Joe very much. And without Joe Jackson there would be no Michael, Janet, or any other Jackson. I can;t blame Joe for fighting to get justice for his son.

im not saying he is alive or dead. im stating the ambulance photo is NOT MJ.
(as for people employed-bodyguards , dancers and musicians, they all have confidciality agreements, some are 4 years long)
as for lapd, look closely as to whts goin on now and in the recent past.bratton.
family and friends, ask them.
everyone at forrest lawn? there is no 'everyone'.
the coroner? there are 5 different death certificates. why? they had a 'leak' and were gonna do an investigation? did it happen? you tell me.



there are so many places you can read about all of this, there is not enough time to type it out on a tmz site dear. have a nice weekend and go look if your curious.
perhaps youd be surprised.


for the record, joe Jackson is doing his job, he is not BAD MAN by any means. alot of people are mislead by the press, just like mj was proscuted in the press. that is another fact.

just because its on paper or in the press, doesnt mean its true.

A SPERM DONOR does not make Joe a father!! Remember he did NOT even want to be called DAD...He wanted to be treated like a manager...so I guess that is how he was treated in the will too, Michaels recent managers did not get any money either!!
Joe never knew how to be a DAD..and he wants to start now? Why didn't he do this before Michael died?? If he CARES so much about Michael now, why doesn't he spend his time finding out why Murray is still a free man, instead of going through the revolving door at the courthouse to file papers to get money??
