Conrad Murray to Joe Jackson: Objection!!!

10/11/2010 4:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray is making it clear -- he will fight Joe Jackson tooth and nail in the Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit.

1011_conrad_joe
In new legal documents -- obtained by TMZ -- Dr. Murray's lawyer, Charles Peckham, is asking the judge to throw out statements attributed to Michael Jackson ... that Katherine Jackson was acting as an agent -- a go-between -- in funneling support money to Joe.

Peckham says the claims that Katherine was Michael's agent -- made by Joe's lawyer, Brian Oxman, and Leonard Rowe, the self-proclaimed former MJ advisor, are nothing but rank hearsay.

For example, Oxman said in legal papers filed last week, "[Michael Jackson] supported his father, Joseph Jackson, by making payments to his mother, Katherine Jackson, on a monthly basis."  Peckham calls Oxman an "incompetent legal expert."

Peckham also claims there is no proof Rowe ever served as Michael's advisor.

MJ had the financial means to be exactly that. He'd always been lucky in the past in choosing physicians who had enough medical knowledge that they could administer the drugs 'safely', albeit 'illegally' but at least they were knowledgeable enough NOT to kill him.

@Cher
How does a licensed knowledgeable physician administer drugs safely and "illegally"? What were these illegal drugs? If the doctor were administering illegal drugs, the doctor or doctors should be arrested.

The Sony umbrella is huge. They have so many ways to steal or conceal how MJ's music will be distributed, controlled and owned by them. MJ was not broke by a long shot. It's all a big fat LIE!!!!

MJJ Music is listed as a former company/label under Sony.

MJJ Music was a recording company founded by American pop singer Michael Jackson.
Founded in 1994, Jackson formed the label to help shape the talents of burgeoning artists. Among the string of artists that signed with Jackson on the label include Brownstone, 3T, Tatyana Ali and Men of Vizion. The label's most significant successes in America was that of Brownstone, whose 1994 single, "If You Love Me", hit the top ten of the pop charts, and Tatyana Ali, who had a top ten hit in 1999 with the single, "Daydream". Another significant success for the label was 3T, whose first album, Brotherhood, went gold in America and platinum overseas.
Due to difficulties between Jackson and his parent label Sony Music over promotion over his career and the label's future, Jackson folded the label in 2001.
