Joe Jackson Wrongful Death Suit Filed

6/25/2010 5:58 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0405_joe_jackson_tmz_ex.jpgJoe Jackson's wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray has been filed in federal court.

According to the records department at the federal court in downtown Los Angeles, the lawsuit has officially been filed.

As TMZ first reported, Joe is suing Conrad Murray for unspecified damages in connection with the death of Michael Jackson.

In the complaint, Joe alleges Dr. Murray withheld vital information from the doctors and EMTs who were trying to save Michael's life -- specifically, information that he had administered Propofol.

UPDATE 2:10 PM PT: The federal court clerk says they just kicked the lawsuit back to Joe's attorney Brian Oxman because there's a "mistake" in the paperwork. So it will have to be refiled. Oops.

UPDATE 3:00 PM PT: Everything is in order and the lawsuit has been filed again.

I don't blame Joe. If it were your son and his death were suspicious wouldn't you want to do more? People live through cardiac arrests all the time when proper procedures have been met. MJ's life was in the hands of a cardiologist for christ's sake, he should have been able to save him if he had of followed proper protocol and not left his patients side MJ would still be living.

Michael has to be rolling over in his grave. Joe Jackson has no business making any money off of Michael's death. It is obvious that Michael didn't want him to get any money by the terms of the will. It is his kids that should have filed suit through their guardian and a lawyer.NOT Joe Jackson.He is a money grubbing SOB.

Joe should just leave Kathrine out of this wrongful death suit. It is about the justice. It shouldn't be about the money! How stupid is he!? He is just an EVIL man!

DUH, Oxman prepared it what dop you expect? Oxman is the MOST IMCOMPETENT LAWYER in the history of law. I pray, Joe and Oxman has some kind of dignity left and do NOT file anything anymore and toether can crawl in a hole to kill themselves. These 2 men are detriment to MJ Justice! OXMAN, JOE, YOU WANNA SEE JUSTICE FOR MJ? YOU DO REMAIN SILENT, DON'T SAY ANYTHING ABOUT MJ, DON'T DO ANYTHING THAT INVOLVES MJ!

I agree, that Dr Murray was SH*T .. i would fill 100 lawsuits if i could ... ( lots of reasons )

First it cost allot of MONEY to defend your self in court . How is Dr SH*T going to pay for all that ???

Second , JOEs case will DIG deeper . that can only be a GOOD thing for all . accept AEG and Randy Phillips and Dr muuray i hope they all go BROKE and get 20 yaers in jail ..GREADY RATS

Way to go Oxman....the idiot can't even file a proper and correct lawsuit. No wonder MJ didn't pay him money he owed him. lol

Just like in life in death he has to try and take the attention away from Michael. Timing is everything for this grub. Of all the time he could do this he picks today. And he wonders why Michael left him out of the will.
