Joe Jackson

Wrongful Death Lawsuit

Tossed Out of Court

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.

For sure greedy unnatural mother Katherine (who with no shame involved Michael's children, just as when she involves them in all of her shady business with shady characters), and her worthy husband wanted to get more money by filing two suits separately, but it went wrong!!! They had even the courage to drop the restitution request against murderer, of course they were too much busy to try to get more money through their suits-trash!!!!

I know Joe Jackson is no angel, but it's because of him, that the Jacksons exist in the music world. Because of his vision and dedication to make it a reality. If he hadn't persued it, the Jacksons would probably be in Gary, Indiana working a 7-5 job in some factory. He worked very hard to raise his family into a better life.
Now, I am surprised that back then, when the Jacksons began (in Motown specially),there was not a clause in the contracts he got his children, that entitled Joe to a certain percentage of whatever money those contracts generated.
I'm just thinking, I'm not really sure how this kind of machine works; but I find it hard to believe he didn't secure his earnings back then.
I am a huge fan of Michael Jackson and the Jacksons, but the fact that Katherine and Joe filed wrongful death lawsuits in the death of their son separately instead of filing it together as the parents, shows a big rift in that marriage. Something is not right.

He's such a reprobate. That said Katherine Jackson's action against AEG is sheer greed. They did everything for Jackson in preparation for that tour. They paid for his rental in Beverly Hills, were going to provide a London Doctor for the tour but Jackson insisted they employ Murray. Jackson lied to AEG, former colleagues, and the insurance company about his health and his sleeping habits.

This whole family is just disgusting from the parents who are money grubbing whores to their son who was a drug addicted pedophile. I actually feel bad for Dr. Murray as he's just a victim of cir***stance because if it wasn't him dishing out the drugs to the pedophile it would have been another doctor. He should get a reward for sending a perv to his grave.
