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.

Joe Jackson should just move on and do what he do best: look out for himself.

The man just seems that he does not really care about his son's death. He just wants to get money and so.

This TMZ explanation doesn't seem right. Why wouldn't this company (AEG) be held liable for everyone who suffered the same loss due to their negligence or client?
Companies pay out millions of dollars to individuals who file claims exactly alike.

Ex: the tobacco industry and
the catholic church...................bhaaah!

Joe Jackson should accept the monthly allowance offer of Micheal Jackson Estate and STOP making shady business in Michael name.

No wonder michael jackson grew up so f*cked up & weird. His mother is a weak willed push over, and his father is an overbearing pimp wannabe.

good luck. One crack head suing on behalf of another dead crack head equals zero. The only cool part is one of them can't hump kids any more.

It took for MJ to die before we all realized what kind of disfunctional family he grew up in. And never got away from even as an adult.....It must have been heartbreaking for him with a Dad seeing him as merchandise.
