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.

A vey dirty, filthy crime ha been committed with a loosely put together conspiracy plan. Why is murray only chargred with involuntart manslaugher?He did many wrong and unethical, medically not approvd things already before he killed Michael.
Most likely he has backup from other shady charachters, maybe
will be nicely paid for his deed in the future.How on earth could an insurance (insurance that all practicing physicicians have) agree to pay him anyhthing.Also he was for sure not allowed to practice in UK and has in no way made preparations to go there. Probably knew it was not in the cards.-Good that Joe is making some noise about the ese matters so evil can not be swept under the rug easily.

Joe Jackson probably pimped out little michael literally on the J-5's road to fame. It explains why Michael was a wreck.
Joe Jackson is a horrible human being and didn't deserve MJ.

I loved Michaels as an entertainer but come on MJ fans. He was dieng. 110 lbs? I think Conrad is innocent. MJ was a raving drug addict and so unhealthy. Everyone that has ever worked with Conrad loved and respected him. That says alot. I personaly think the head of security should get in trouble. He was searching the internet when the Dr called him 2x."Run theres something wrong with Mr.Jackson" and it takes him forever to get there. Then the first thing the Dr says is call 911 and he doesn't do it? The Dr. could NEVER just call 911. Without contacting security first they wouldn't be able to get in. Everyone around Michael is covering there own a-- and Murray is getting blamed.
