Danica, not even Katherine's lawsuit is well planned. Given that the children ARE beneficiaries, the statute of limitations for a filing is until Blanket turns 18. So, how does one not question motives here?  :confused1:

In regards to Tom, perhaps he only deals in criminal defense...I don't know if criminal lawyers ever really engage in civil litigation. And yup...fits definitely gonna hit the shan in 2011!!!  :bull:

I thought I read that Katherine and Joe were going sue jointly, or was that on a different suit?
no i dont believe they are involved in any suit together

joe only uses oxman cause oxman works pretty much for free. joe cant afford a proper lawyer and oxman makes his money by running to the press talking crap about mj.

This kind of sounds like the classic line from the Tom Cruise / Demi Moore movie "A Few Good Men"
"So this is what a courtroom looks like".

Dr. Conrad Murray Requesting Dismissal Of Wrongful Death Lawsuit 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Posted on Jun 29, 2011 @ 06:35AM   
Splashnews/WENNBy Jen Heger - Radar Legal Editor

Dr. Conrad Murray is asking a judge to throw out the wrongful death lawsuit that Michael Jackson's father, Joe filed against the King of Pop's one time physician, Radaronline.com can exclusively report.

Lawyers for Dr. Murray filed the legal docs last Friday, arguing that Joe Jackson doesn't have legal standing to even file the lawsuit -- Michael left his father, Joe out of his will and did not support him financially.

The legal docs state: "Joe Jackson further has no standing to sue pursuant to, in that he was not dependent upon the decedent for support and therefore Joe Jackson has no subject matter jurisdiction, alternatively, in personam jurisdiction to sue....Defendants request that the Plaintiff's case be dismissed, alternatively, that the Plaintiff go forth without recovery from these Defendants."

Dr. Conrad Murray’s Attorneys Request Case Dismissal — See The Documents

Michael Jackson died on June 25, 2009, from acute propofol intoxication. Dr. Murray's trial for involuntary manslaughter, is expected to begin in August. If convicted of the charge, Murray could be sent to state prison for up to four years.

Joe Jackson Wants To Add AEG Live As Defendent In Murray Lawsuit

(CNS) Posted Thursday June 30, 2011 – 9:25am
Lawyers for Michael Jackson's father wants to add AEG Live as a defendant in his lawsuit alleging the actions of his son's former personal physician contributed to the singer's death.

Court papers filed this week by Joe Jackson's attorneys, Brian Oxman and Maureen Jaroscak, allege AEG Live was negligent in the hiring of Dr. Conrad Murray.

The singer's mother, Katherine Jackson, is suing the company in a separate lawsuit in which she alleges AEG Live is responsible for medical decisions made by Murray.
 
Lawyers for AEG have denied any wrongdoing by their client, which had organized the sold-out London concert tour for which the entertainer was preparing in Los Angeles at the time of his June 25, 2009, death.

Joe Jackson's amended complaint alleges AEG Live officials were unhappy with his son's absence from rehearsals and blamed it on him receiving drugs and medications from various physicians, including the singer's dermatologist, Dr. Arnold Klein.

The company then hired Murray, according to the amended suit.

Attorneys for Murray have agreed to the addition of AEG Live as a defendant, but still need the approval of Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Yvette Palazuelos, who has scheduled a hearing for Sept. 6.

Joe Jackson alleges Murray is liable for wrongful death in his son's death, which was death due to complications from an overdose of propofol.

He alleges Murray was negligent in administering propofol to the singer and that the physician did not tell paramedics that he gave his patient the drug.

Murray is awaiting trial in September on an involuntary manslaughter charge in the pop star's death.

JOE JACKSON DROPS Wrongful Death Suit Against Dr. Murray
8/15/2012 2:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Joe Jackson has decided ... he's pulling the plug on his wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray ... TMZ has learned.

Joe just filed a request with the court, obtained by TMZ, asking to dismiss his 2010 suit against Murray without prejudice -- a lawsuit in which he blamed the doctor for MJ's untimely demise.

In the suit, Joe alleged Murray withheld vital information from the doctors and EMTs who were trying to save Jackson's life the day he died -- specifically, that Murray had administered Propofol.

You'll recall -- Joe had also sued AEG as part of the lawsuit, but those claims were tossed out of court in February because Katherine had made similar claims in her own wrongful death suit. Joe's suit was deemed redundant.

But Joe's still got a hat in the ring -- he is currently a nominal party to Katherine's suit, in which Katherine and the family accuse AEG of breaching its agreement to provide physical care for Michael during his "This Is It" tour.

The lawsuit also alleges AEG was negligent in its hiring of Murray as MJ's physician.

Either way, it's good news for Murray -- because it's one less lawsuit to worry about ... for now.

Murray's lawyers Charles Peckham and Valerie Wass tell TMZ, the doctor didn't pay Joe anything -- and they have no idea why Joe suddenly requested to dismiss his case.

Peckham tells us, "Cooler heads have prevailed."

Michael Jackson's dad drops wrongful death lawsuit
By By ANTHONY McCARTNEY | Associated Press – 6 hrs ago


LOS ANGELES (AP) — Michael Jackson's father has dropped a wrongful death lawsuit filed against the former doctor who was convicted of causing the singer's death.

Court records show Joe Jackson's request for a dismissal was granted Monday. The filings do not elaborate on a reason for dropping pursuit of the case, but two attorneys handling the case were recently ruled ineligible to practice law in California.

The Jackson family patriarch initially filed the lawsuit against Conrad Murray in June 2010, on the anniversary of his son's death. A federal judge refused to hear it and it had to be re-filed in state court in Los Angeles.

"It's good finally that this case is dismissed and gone," Murray's attorney Charles Peckham said Wednesday. "It's pretty clear that Joe Jackson intelligently and smartly dismissed this case so he, his wife and children can focus on Michael Jackson's life instead of the circumstances of his death."

He said Murray, who remains jailed and is appealing his involuntary manslaughter conviction, remains pained by Jackson's death and feels sorry for his family. "His heart goes out to them," Peckham said.
Jackson's mother, Katherine, continues to pursue a case against concert company AEG Live alleging it negligently hired and supervised

Murray, who was giving Jackson nightly doses of the powerful anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid. Murray's treatments were conducted while Jackson was preparing for a series of comeback concerts.
Her case is scheduled for trial in April.

Joe Jackson's case claimed Murray repeatedly lied to paramedics and doctors about giving Jackson propofol and that he did not keep adequate medical records — all issues that prosecutors raised against Murray during his trial last year.
He had been seeking damages for a variety of issues, including loss of income and support, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.

Joe Jackson Drops Wrongful Death Lawsuit Against Conrad Murray
Posted by Jeffrey Harris on 08.15.2012

The father of the late Michael Jackson has dropped the lawsuit...

TMZ reports that Joe Jackson has opted to drop the wrongful death lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray.

Jackson filed a request with the court requesting to dismiss his 2010 lawsuit against Murray without prejudice. In the suit, Jackson claimed Murray was responsible for the death of Joe Jackson's son, Michael.

Joe Jackson had also attempted to sue AEG in the lawsuit as well, but the courts removed those claims last February when Katherine Jackson also made claims against AEG in her own wrongful death lawsuit. As a result the claims against AEG in Joe Jackson's lawsuit were considered redundant.

Jackson is still nominal party in Katherine's lawsuit in which the Jackson family hold AEG responsible for not upholding their agreement to provide physical care for Jackson during his tour of This Is It, and AEG was negligent in their hiring of Conrad Murray as physician to Michael Jackson.

Conrad Murray's legal counsel, Charles Peckham and Valerie Wass, told TMZ that doctor didn't pay anything to Joe Jackson and they are clueless as to the sudden dismissal of the case. Peckham believes, "Cooler heads have prevailed."
