Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Lawsuit Refiled

11/30/2010 9:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

If at first you don't succeed ... Joe Jackson has refiled the Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray.

Michael Jackson Wrongful Death Lawsuit

A federal judge threw out Joe's claim, ruling the case should have been filed in a California state court.  So Joe's lawyer has now refiled the case in L.A. County Superior Court.

Joe is alleging that Dr. Murray was negligent in administering the Propofol that killed the singer.

Joe is also suing Applied Pharmacy Services in Las Vegas, that sold the drug to Murray.

Doesn't California law require the case against Dr. Murray to have been filed in California before the first anniversary of Michael Jackson's death because it claims MJ died due to the medical negligence of Dr. Murray?

I am presuming taht is why the lawyers included the other defendants -- because wrongful death due to nonmedical personnel negligence has a two year statute of limitations.

Also, Joe Jackson has a problem in that under California law he may not be one of the individuals authorized to file a wrongful death suit over MJ's death. His only claim to be able to file the lawsuit is if he could prove that MJ was contributing to his support before MJ died or if he were a beneficiary under MJ's will.

Seems to me that Joe's lawyers filed the lawsuit where they did first trying to avoid these issues of California law.

Sincerity    

Mr. Jackson may not be the most likable "Father of All Time" but if he can find a "legal loophole" to uncover reliable information about the cir***stances surrounding his son's death, "Let Him Have At It". If safety protocols were cir***vented in order for Dr. Murray to obtain the drugs that he administered to Michael Jackson, then the executors of his estate may also be interested in this information. If the information is useful, Mrs. Jackson may be interest in suing, in case Mr. Jackson's suit is "shut down".

And I would add the question: Why research is concentrated only in CM, since there is a suspicion of the family and most fans, there was a conspiracy to kill him? Why the indifference of the judicial system in this case? I'm outraged!
