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.

Joe Jackson is illiterate    


Why doesn't this evil old fart just disappear??? And don't anyone write any sh*t about how if it weren't for Joe MJ wouldn't be famous. If it weren't for Joe, MJ would have had a normal childhood and adolescence, would have been discovered in the church like so many poor black folk, and would have been a happy normal man who could sleep at nights, and wouldn't need dr. Con.

This old fart is not entitled to anything - pictures, records, money, nothing! Michael would not have wanted him near his kids or any of his personal stuff, and certainly not his money!

You guys are a little tough on Joe. Joe and the Jackson's have every right to sue. Those pictures were private. They plastered them all over the media and news for ratings. You don't disrespect King MJ and get away with it. Joe and the Jackson sue em' like there's no tomorrow! I wish MJ would have sued the media for defamation of character. I hate the media for what they did to King MJ. MJ you are loved and missed terribly.
God Bless the Jackson Family!!

much as I may not like Joe Jackson...Entertainment Tonight should be sued, they should never have run that photo. I clicked on their website the day after MJ died and that photo popped up. They should be held accountable for extremely bad judgment

If there are any photos of MJ upon death, the only reason Joe Jackson would want them is to sell them and make money for himself...can't get any lower than a snakes belly...OH WAIT...Joe Jackson can!!
