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.

Hold you laughs. MJJ did not hate his father, but knew he was wreckless with funds and this is an example of why MJJ would leave money for Joe only through Katherine. Any silly lawsuit he files will not hurt the money from his son.

jojack just wants more cash. he probably thought he'd get more money if he filed his OWN suit (ie. not have to share w kjack, i imagine)...what a money grubbing loser that man is. how would he be entitled to money surround the jacko situation anyway? he was a ROTTEN father, and he raised an entire family just riddled with psychological issues. if anything, a suit should be brought against HIM.

When is this evil snake going to slither back under the rock he slithered out from? Looking at him makes me disgusted.

There's a problem here    

Dad Jackson has the face that pops up in nightmares once in a while. I don't understand how his family can even stand to look at him.

Well , that should give Joe the message..
Meanwhile, he has a very successful daughter , Janet, and Latoya and Jermaine wrote books.
Latoya along with some of the other brothers did the tribute show , so they all made some money..

He has always seemed to feel that MJ owed his success to him ..
he just feels entitled..

Let the other children pitch in ..MJ repaid him ten times over..
