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.

Michael wasn't a drug addict,he had lupus,vitiligo and pleurisy so he was taking medicine to treat them.
Both autopsies stated that he had no signs of drug abuse.
What killed Michael was the propofol that murray filled him with.

In a bar room brawl who do you think would win Joe or Conrad?

Although Joe is older I think he would hand Conrad his head on a platter

Explain how that isn't the worst kind of bullying; I'm really disappointed in you guys...

@Fred You are assuming it was an accident...also OJ was aquitted. The end result is the same three deaths for no good reason and someone needs to pay.

The legal standings to bring a wrongful death suit are very clear.

Joe cannot prove MJ supported him directly.

It is so simple, Joe lacks standing to waste the court's time with his nonsense.

All of Joe's attorneys involved should be sanctioned and face discipline by the Bar Association.

This is some old, rank, stank, fill in the blank stuff! I'm sick and tired of hearing about the Jacksons and that "he said, she said" syndrome. Who cares! Let Oprah have her opinion of Michael Jackson because it's hurting no one, and it surely isn't hurting him. We need to focus on the living. Let Michael Jackson rest in peace...the media is up on him worse now than they were when he was walking the earth. Vote on November 2nd

mj fan forever    

Murray you must rot in the jail, murderer!!!!! As regard Katherine, between she and Joe I don't know who is worse. The only thing they want from life is money and nothing else. She never cared about her son and ONLY now she comes out (for asking more and more money, again). They are liars and parasites. All. SHAME ON YOU!!!!!!!
