Michael Jackson's dad to file wrongful death suit against doctor

Michael Jackson's father will file a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court against Dr. Conrad Murray on Friday, the anniversary of the pop star's death, Joe Jackson's lawyer said.

The suit alleges that Murray gave paramedics and doctors false information about what drugs Michael Jackson had been given and hindered efforts to revive him in an ambulance and at UCLA Medical Center, according to a copy of the suit obtained by CNN.

The suit said "other parties responsible for Michael Jackson's death" would be added, but that the plaintiff "has not yet gathered sufficient information regarding their potential liability or responsibility."

A complaint filed by Joe Jackson with the California medical board this month also named AEG, the company that was producing his son's comeback concerts

    How can you sue someone for doing what your son wanted. He had made mistakes but he was getting paid by Michael. He was doing what Michael requested from him.
