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.

Those pics were fake and photoshopped. If you look on any of the MJ fan forums you can see them on there as proof.

MJ would of been proud of New Orleans. A city torn apart by "Katrina" brought together by a football team, black, white, hispanic, or whatever background they are. Saints fans are proud and standing as one as this football team broke racial barriers and everyone is cheering together. Michael you were so right, everyone needs to cheer together, smile together and love each other. It really doesn't matter if you're "Black or White" It is truly a great feeling!!!!!!!!

Getting here was half the fun...GO SAINTS...

Joe Jackson is out of his mind. He needs serious psychiatric help! If you know him please, please make a call or stage an intervention.



I'm sick of hearing about this weirdo and his strange kids!

Joe seriously "Get a Job", your such a sad human being and most importantly father. Stop trying to get money out of your son. MJ purposely left your out of his will. Maybe if you stop being money hungry somebody will throw you a bone.

Think About It... You Be the Judge    

Michael was abused by his own family. Always being the one relied on to pay the bill for The Jackson Compound... where all his grown brothers lived with their families. His brothers aren't entertainers and they know it and so does Joe himself. If this was the case, their names and tours would have been out there. All Michael wanted in life was privacy for his own children and to be left alone by his own Father (Joe) and the family. He's gone and now they are all lost. Joe Jackson is trying anything to try and get his hands on Money. Ask Katherine if you need an allowance, she'e the one forking out the money. By the way, who's paying all the attorney fees and supporting your high flying lifestyle....Joe?

My Opinion Only... You be the Judge...

Does that guy never give up? This latest attempt to sue over the photo seems to me just a back door way for old Joe to cash in on the death photo himself.

Did anyone sue the tabloid who published the photo of Elvis in his casket or John Lennon's body at the morgue? I don't think so.
