Conrad Murray Wrongful Death Suit Tossed ... Almost

8/6/2010 7:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray could be temporarily off the hook in the federal wrongful death lawsuit involving Michael Jackson -- all because Joe Jackson left some key information out of the paperwork.

0807_murray_jackson_EX
TMZ has learned a federal judge is taking Jackson and his attorney Brian Oxman to task for failing to specify where two of the defendants -- health clinics where Dr. Murray practiced -- conduct their business.  Without that information the judge can't determine if the federal court has jurisdiction over the case.

The judge has given Jackson one week to amend the complaint or have the suit tossed.

Even if this case is dismissed, Dr. Murray might not be fully in the clear. Jackson has a lot of options -- including refiling the federal suit with Murray as the lone defendant.

Kim ~ I actually can't remember when Joe & Oxman filed. And I'll bet it will be like a treasure hunt trying to fine the article now.

Yes Kim, I remember that and I am also having a hard time finding old post here, I am not sure if this is the mistake Oxman made when he first put the paperwork through.

Kim ~ It's hard to tell. From what I do remember Oxman made many mistakes even in the spelling. I guess he doesn't know how to do spellcheck. Duh!
