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.

I think that despite what Joe was often insensitive, we must consider and respect the fact that he lost his beloved son, and he and his family have every right to claim for justice, even if the money is part of the process. It is very easy to judge people when those people are not part of our daily life. RIP MJ

Where does greedy Joe get his money to pay for a lawyer to file these bogus lawsuits? His pedophile son was a full blown junky. He paid for Murray to give him a drug he knew would kill him. He didn't care. So now he's good and dead. Now those purchased kids don't have to be forced to endore the tortured life of the King of Flop. By the way, all this new music coming out s*cks big time.

I strongly believe that Joe Jackson has the right to file this lawsuit. I also know from Michael saying it himself on many recordings that he did indeed forgive his father. Come on people we are only a third party in this we were not in their lives to know what was happening between father and son.So stop judging and hating. I think that if this is the way to get Conrad Murray to pay for what he did then so be it!! He was the doctor why did it take him two days to disclose information about what he administered to Michael that day. Murray is shady!!the end of story it took away a life a father away from his babies. Forget about Michael the celebrity that 98% of the stuff written about him is untrue. Please remember this is a person that lost his life due to the fact his doctor was negligent and only cared about money. Forget the fact who Joe Jackson is and remember he lost his beloved son.I say never give up Joe and help bring justice for Michael. I can not wait until the case in Jan starts. I can not wait to see the parties involved get whats coming to them. I just want justice for Michael that is all I am asking for. He should of gotten help and should of been still here. He was a wonderful , caring man and a loving father. R.I.P MJJ I love you

Give it up you old fart. Your son left you out of his will for a reason. BECUASE HE DIDN'T LIKE YOU!!! You had one last chance to shake his casket for any loose change - so now reality buts you in the butt. Either wait for a few crumbs to be thrown your way or live in your SS check like everyone else your age does. No wonder most of your grandchildren just hang around the family compound looking for a hand-out, they learned it from you You little weasle.

Kathy #9 did you read the final results of the autopsy and coroner's report??? Considering all the final findings of these reports not once was suicide mentioned. A Doctor is responsible for administering "drugs" to his patient which in this case is Michael Jackson. The Doctor should be held responsible for this death to some degree. If this trial ever takes place then and maybe then will more of the truth finally be revealed. I still believe there is some much more to be told especially of the "shady" people that were in Michael's life. Sad to say but I think there were lots.

Why do lawyers keep taking this mans case. MJ purposely estranged himself from an abusive, overbearing father. Is his wife no longer able to give him money on the DL? Please someone slap him with a gag order and shut him the F -up.

Go Joe! The real and total truth needs to be disclosed. Joe is totally responsible for all of you ever hearing of The Jackson 5, The Jacksons and Michael Joseph Jackson. He deserves to know the truth and have Murray pay. Four maximum years for Wrongful Death isn't nearly enough for him to, MAYBE pay. I will take it that those not wanting Joe to press charges are those being paid by those responsible for Michael's death. I hope everyone in the family does the same, file charges. There are way too many in LA that would love to see this just all go away and keep getting paid by Michael's legacy. None of them are family members.

When are we going to see that guy Dr. Conrad Murray arrested? It's been over a year since he killed MJ with propofol. Why is he still allowed to practice medicine?
