Joe Jackson

Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Tossed Out of Court

2/21/2012 11:03 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Joe Jackson screwed up by filing a Michael Jackson wrongful death lawsuit against AEG ... a judge has just ruled.

Joe filed his wrongful death lawsuit AFTER Katherine Jackson filed hers -- on her own behalf and on behalf of the kids.

It's unclear why Joe didn't try to join in Katherine's suit rather than filing a separate one on his own.  It's possible Katherine didn't want him.

Whatever the reason, the judge said you can't have 2 suits that allege the exact same thing, and since Katherine filed first Joe loses.

Joe could now try to horn in on Katherine's legal action -- if she'll let him.

Say what you will about MJ, but he was smart enough to keep this money hungry leach out of his Will.

He should try to date rihanna. He likes to beat up kids and she likes to take a beating by abusive men. What a freaky scary dude.

This is no surprise. Only one wrongful death suit should have been filed, any way.

Is there a more despicable creature than Joe Jackson? Can't think of one off hand...maybe a few dead ones. What a piece of work!

The Jackson's need to stop wasting court time. Move on, be glad he has a few coins left. He was a great singer, but will always be remembered as a druggie and perv in life. Too bad they couldn't admit his true problems. MJ is no role model.
