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.

Don't get me wrong, it's not so much trying to be helpful.. but a spade is a spade, by that I mean I have briefly skimmed over some recent posts, your responces to Cher's appear to be a lot more aggressive & or nasty for some reason..

- does ''Cheers, you Loser Anus'' ring a bell?

To Cher's - ''Get that FOAM out of your MOUTH''...... pales in conparison to the tone of the above dont't you think? NOT nice..

This his is like a one-sided battle of wills of which there are no winners. Could what you come up with could be considered unsubstantiated drivel also?

She is trying to do the same as you & everybody else, - that is try to find out / investigate what happened to Michael, you have your opinions, & Cher has her's, No hatred at all!

By the way, I think her posts are great. She does it her way, you do it yours.

IMO..read over what you write then you'll know where i'm coming from.....

I hear you Annie!
I think you have a 'calling' on you life.
You sound like a sweet and sincere person and Michael would have been so blessed to have met you! Really, he would have; You may have been able to have helped him; you never know!
God bless you!

Dear WillOTheWisp,

And I hear you too.....if you can recognise that about me you must be the same. God bless you.

Michael deserves to have sincere admirers (like you and I and the others on this board) and I long for the day when we will meet our friend in a better place and all our tears will be wiped away.

Keep the faith WillO......it is the only way to go.

Good night.

Papa can you hear me - 3.0...........
-Hey r.schildt, great to see you posting again! We certainly could use expertise like yours on these boards.
It's points like yours about Murray claiming he administered the Propofol, then--oops, have to take a leak--that assures me his part in this was no bumbling mistake.....
-#358: Hey HumanNature! You hit the nail on the head! Thing is, the culprits know that they can count on the media to latch onto anything negative about Michael, and depend upon Americans to lap it up....well, some Americans.....
The LAPD detectives report stated that they visited Holmsby the late afternoon of 6/25/09 and found a few bottles of meds, IV, etc, but when they went back the 2nd time-after Murray and the Jacksons had been there contaminating the crime scene, they found bottles of meds strewn about--many with the label pulled off and other with aliases on them, and they found vials of Propofol and that secret closet that contained more of the same...and they said the room was a mess this time, which the Press implied was due to Michael, when it was more likely due to the family and others searching for Michael's cash stash, and moving stuff out of the house....
As for Murray or someone putting needle marks on Michael's body, I think it's possible. Suffice it to say, the average person accepted the media BS about Michael being an addict, and who could blame them when it was constantly being shoved down your throat, and even the so-called respectable news outlets like CNN were reporting these tales......
Regarding Colony wanting to make Neverland into a Nat'l park, I know they have their work cut out for them there, and I do believe there's something to this story, the only thing I'm still trying to figure out is what's the payoff for Barrack in this....the fact that he can figure out a way to parlay Neverland into a MJ Museum, or does it have something to do with the valuable minerals, oil and water found on Neverland??
And as for the Propofol, I also support the theory that Michael had gone into distress from either the issues he was having with dehydration, or the benzos Murray gave him, which possibly led to a coma, at which time the decision was made to end his life using the Propofol--I believe this is why Michael had so much of it in him according to the Coroner's....it was in his STOMACH and coming out of his EYEBALLS....
-BTW: I made that comment about Murray's wife based on an article I read, so I don't know how true the "puppetmaster" part is, that was just my take on it--I have no backup to support that, whatsoever. Blanche appears to be a competent physician based on what I read with a much better track record than her estranged husband. However, the article and some blogs I read lead you to believe they think she knew about Murray's involvement in the plan to kill MIchael among other shady things Murray's been linked to. Remember, Murray was tight with Quanell Armstrong of the NOI and worked for him at the Armstrong Clinic in Houston--according to a post by Tstorm. And one of the aliases the DEA found was "Michael Armstrong".....
-#377, et.al: Hey SarahJane! Wanted to take time to thank you for your words of support. I realize how harmful and useless it is to argue and defend myself for something I never did. Where I went wrong is to even DIGNIFY such allegations with a response, but in my zeal to share info with others here and keep the Investigation in the spotlight, I made numerous attempts to clear my name of this smear campaign.
Bottom line, I STAND BEHIND EVERY ONE OF MY OPINIONS AND WILL CONTINUE TO SHARE THEM WITH ANYONE WHO WILL LISTEN. However, I'm completely done with this "war of words" and refuse to indulge in it any further. As they say, the person who defends themself has a FOOL FOR A LAWYER. I've realized that regardless of how it got started, I've been raised with Integrity, so I'M GOING TO BE THE ONE TO END IT!!!
The fact is, it's a HUGE waste of my time to even have to read the 10-15 posts attacking me, then take time to answer them back (maintaining my style of wit as usual--LOL.) As you stated, I'm not on here at times when I can answer back right away, therefore, I tend to answer everyone in 1-3 long posts...it's the best way for me, at the moment...
At the end of the day, the breach is irreparable and so for me, there is nothing left to say on this subject.....Done and Done....
In the final analysis, I am so happy to be able to be in ANY WAY a help or inspiration for those who come here FOR MICHAEL and FOR JUSTICE IN HIS DEATH.....

I too enjoy Chers posts very much. I find her articulate and knowledgable about all things MJ.
As for her 'conspiracy theory' - well, I think it's important to keep an open mind. I would rather someone question EVERYTHING the media tells them, than question nothing at all.

As for me, well, I'm an absolute realist - however, I have to admit there are some uncanny coincidences or connections between the main players. For example, Bashirs brother being Tom Barracks driver?

Although I do not agree that Murray was 'hired' to kill MJ, I do think that there have been financial dealings after his death which deserve investigation. MJ was ripped off continuously whilst alive - why wouldn't this continue after death, especially when his estate is worth so much more now?

So, I certainly do not trust Branca, nor his relationship with SONY. I believe the will was not faked as such, but that Branca knew MJ was 'under undue influence' when it was drafted. I doubt very much wether Michael actually read the will or trust do***ents.

(Controversial alert!) Personally, although I know MJ was a musical genius, I have to question his general intelligence and maturity in many other areas. He didn't seem to have a clue when it came to finances, and his social skills were almost non-existant. I'm not condemning him for this. Given his upbringing, the Hollywood lifestyle and his lack of conventional education, it would be surprising had he developed like the rest of us.

I think he showed a tendancy to employ so called 'experts' and leave them to it. Michael was basically a simple 'song and dance man', driven by inspiration rather than musical a***en, and any practical business dealings seemed to bore him.

Just my opinion.

I enjoy reading your post and keep up the good work!!!

If anyone remember PuppetMaster post it gave us a lot of accurate information concerning MJ and others that was TRUE!!!

We that follow PuppetMaster always believe that it had to be someone very close that had FIRST hand, credible knowledge and information concerning MJ, his death and the people that was around him!!!

There was so much information being posted on TMZ board in the beginning that I must have missed that one on Blanche. Lately, I have been doing a little of my own research on her. I was glad to finally see a picture of her and the daughter.

You just keep on posting!!!

Ignore the negative drama!!!

This board is bigger enough for everyone's opinions, fact and fiction!!!

Peace!!!

TMZ is a real joke. Thank goodness for other real reporting news options. At least, they do not hype and try to mislead MJ fans.

Hi Cher ~ Thank you for this post, and all of your other posts.
Please know that I have the highest regard for you and your undying passion for justice for Michael. You are intelligent and articulate and in my opinion a beautiful woman. I understand you only have certain times that you can post and it's usually when I'm not here. So, when I can be here I look forward to reading them.

I also wanted to tell you that these last few days I've felt deeply saddened regarding the differences between you and danger baby. I would wake from my sleep and feel like I was caught in the middle if I should say anything. I care deeply for each of you. Just remember that I admire you both immensely. You each in your own way provide these boards with information that is important, at least for me. My only hope is come 8/23, the Judge presiding over the Preliminary hearing will bind this case over to trial. As I see it, there is enough evidence for that to happen. It’s when it gets to trial that my deepest hope is that he is found guilty and pays the maximum penalty for his actions. As for all others that may have had a hand in the death of Michael I hope they are exposed and pay the ultimate price for their actions.

Now, regarding Neverland: In my opinion (and I may be wrong) I think it would be a lengthy uphill battle for Colony to make it into a National Park or a Museum for MJ. The neighbors as you know will do everything in their power to keep that from happening and they've already started their protests. The infrastructure that would need to be implemented alone would destroy the beauty of the area. As it is now, the traffic with all of the ‘visitors’ isn’t welcomed. Therefore in my opinion it’s what’s beneath that property that would bring in more of an immediate and long term ‘return on investment’. And probably be more welcomed by the local residents. I’ve seen areas in my own state that produce oil, gas etc. that leave the land intact and keep the surrounding beauty in a pristine state.

Yes, I agree with you, and I'm not condemning him as well. His upbringing played a big part in his problems - the lost childhood, the Neverland etc. As I said before. the Michael Jackson story is a sad story. RIP Michael.

Good post, this reflects my opinion too. One question, Indiana has oil/gas? Didn't know that. Guess I could ask my hubby as he's in reservoir/exploitation of oil/gas in the industry up here in Calgary. We're the oil capital of Canada. Hey, hi & waves to Danger Baby & Cher. I totally enjoy reading your posts, please keep helping us learn more about MJ. Really appreciate it.
