Dr. Murray Targets Arnie Klein in MJ Death

9/15/2010 6:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray is going after Michael Jackson's longtime physician and friend, Dr. Arnold Klein, claiming Klein is at least partly to blame for the singer's death and should be a defendant in Joe Jackson's wrongful death lawsuit.


In legal papers filed today and obtained by TMZ ... Dr. Murray challenges Joe Jackson's decision not to name Dr. Klein as one of the physicians allegedly responsible for his son's death.

In the new docs, Murray quotes from Joe's lawsuit, "Dr. Klein may have been medicating Michael Jackson up until or even beyond June 18, 2009, less than one week before Michael Jackson's death."

And Murray continues quoting from Joe's lawsuit that Dr. Klein "prescribed or may have over medicated Michael Jackson including to such point that AEG Live, LLC had to hire Dr. Murray in order to separate Michael Jackson from Arnold Klein."

And Murray goes on to quote Joe's lawsuit which claims "AEG Live, LLC read Michael Jackson the proverbial 'riot act' to get him to stop subjecting himself to overmedication by Dr. Arnold Klein."

So with all that, Dr. Murray concludes, "The plaintiff [Joe Jackson] does not explain why, given these allegations, Dr. Arnold Klein is not a required party to be added to accord proper relief."

In other words ... why didn't Joe sue Arnie?

As TMZ first reported, Dr. Klein shot Michael full of Demerol -- 51 injections in a 3-month span, right up until the week of his death.

Dr. Murray also points the finger at other doctors who treated Michael Jackson, citing TMZ stories revealing that 7 doctors other than Murray were fueling MJ with meds at or near the time of his death.

Murray's team also asked the court to dismiss Joe's wrongful death lawsuit -- claiming Jackson doesn't have the right to file because he's not a beneficiary of MJ's estate.

What a silly, pathetic fool you are, d.b. (aka Deb, Sofi etc.) You don't even live in LA. More of your usual b.s.

-#165: Hey Bunny! This is becoming WAY too easy. I at least expect my enemies to have HALF a BRAIN! CHeck this out:
While you're stuck at the keyboard typing your drivel, think of me out in the LA sunshine, taking a short drive (in a convertible) to visit Holmby, or making the drive to FL. Jealous much?
Thinking of you and Bunny and Andie turning old and grey and shriveled here while defending MJ from imaginary enemies, well, how can I put this? It just warms my heart. -db
Yet another unrated LOL!!! Please tell me when IT would have time to be in the LA or any other kind of Sunshine when IT'S on these boards 24/7 posting TRASH about Michael and his Supporters? And we haven't even CHECKED the other Celeb boards--who knows what it's doing there......
And WHO in their right mind would visit Holmsby on a regular basis? Michael had no connection to that house, other than to be KILLED in it...if anything, I'd AVOID IT LIKE THE PLAGUE....but then, I'M a TRUE SUPPORTER......
This thing is too funnyu trying to convince us that it could care less about us, yet THINKING ABOUT US WARMS IT'S HEART?
That post is just PROOF that EVIL and IDIOCY can walk HAND in HAND........
-#166: Dang baby, you wrote:
bunny: when you can't have a dialog, the next cheapest shot is to accuse someone of using lot of different handles. this is just another fantasy of your pathetic deluded mind. or are you one and the same as cherwood and andie and deb yourself? thought so.

How funny of you to pontificate (another word I must've learned in the "get-toe",) when you've done this VERY THING to me several times. Matter of fact, the first heated exchange we had, you accused me of this when another poster agreed with me and asked you to cut it out....
Thing is, it no longer bothers me because I know it's not true so I have nothing to defend....and also with you, I would consider the source....
Remember, Andie, Bunny and Mymjj5 were on here LONG before they ever had exchanges with me, but your counterparts--sofi and a few others are all late to the party, but just in time to back you up....what's wrong, can't HANDLE the sitch on your own?
BTW: A word of advice--if you really want people to think I'm using nics, naming someone like deb is just DUMB. She was a potty mouthed, racist which is more up YOUR alley....
just sayin'.........

I say that, because we're on HOW many excuses now?

1. I couldn't call for help because there was no landline. Oops, why yes, I did have a cell and made three calls, one taking me right up to the time I discovered the decedent.
2. Hey LAPD. You don't say. I gave him Propofol? Now that you mention it, yes, but only an itty bit. And you can find the bottles in the secret closet.
3. Michael Jackson injected himself.
4. Another person other than Michael and/or me injected Michael. He was murdered by an unknown other!
5. It's AEG's fault; they did not give me the equipment I asked for.
6. It's Arnie Klein's fault. He shot him up with Demerol repeatedly during a three month span leading up to his death.
7. Its' 6 or 7 OTHER doctors' fault, because they were medicating Michael too.

But it sure is hell ain't EVER my fault.

The ONLY part of the above I will agree to is that Klein was peddling drugs to MJ, not 'treating him'. But he wasn't there on 6/25 and had nothing to do with MJ's death.

Murray, Murray, Murray, MURRAY!

Great but you forgot one:

I could not call for help because I did not know that address.

Huh? He'd been MJ's doctor for six weeks and he didn't know where MJ lived?

If only MJ had checked himself into rehab on Father's Day, he would still be alive and away from Murray and AEG.

Dr. Murray should be ashamed of himself. It's easy to blame MJ, he's dead and unable to defend himself. Shame on you! MJ would never have committed suicide, so please don't use that as your defense. That's really lame!

The guilty has a habit of blaming everyone but theirself.

Murray was the key in murdering one of the most generous and kindest people in the world and all he is going to get is a slap on the wrist and lots of money after he writes a book for the morbidly curious.

What of communication between doctors who provide care to the same patient ? I just spoke to a woman yesterday who's doctors disagree about the "medications" she is on. They leave it up to her to make decisions; caught in the middle.

There is something wrong with this picture. This is not a person who is taking drugs to get high. She is vulnerable, as she is sick. She needs to wean-off and clean her system of so many toxins. Meanwhile, she needs the correct advise for the safest way to do so & the doctors insist (as they disagree) that she continue taking what she has been taking. ???

Pharmaceutical companies and doctors continue to make $$$ as patients become addicted to what is prescribed; just maintenanced; controlled & not getting better.

of course Dr. Murray is going to point fingers -- but the fact remains - MJ died on his watch - remember when Belushi died at the Chateau - well I'm sure it wasnt the first time Belushi had done drugs but the girl that injected him got jail time -- he died because she injected him -- its the same with Dr. Murray - he was doing something he shouldn't have been doing -- ever hear the word "no" - If Murray would have quit or said "No" would Michael be here today....probably...maybe not..MJ had a problem and drug addicts hit bottom and live and become sober or they die - there is no inbetween - Dr. Klein it sucks that they are pointing fingers at you but when Dr. Murray. and AEG are pointing a finger at you -- but four fingers are pointing right back at them! Dr. Klein was just trying to make Michael look better after his plastic surgeons destroyed his face...listen to Larry King interviews - Micahel should have been put into Dr. Drews care but AEG had too much to lose....enough said...Take it easy's not Dr. Klein..hes a wonderful giving owe him better and nicer coverage
