Jacksons v AEG Timeline Legal

Jackson Senior prepping wrongful death suit

By | Published on Friday 26 March 2010

Word has it lawyers for Joe ‘father of Michael’ Jackson will next week file a wrongful death lawsuit against Dr Conrad Murray, the medic accused of killing the late king of pop by pumping him full of propofol (well, by negligently administering a shot of the surgical drug).

Murray, of course, has pleaded not guilt to involuntary manslaughter in the criminal case relating to Jacko’s death. It’s not clear how much cash Joe will go for to compensate for the loss of companionship, consortium and economic support the Jackson patriarch claims to have suffered as a result of his son’s sudden demise. It’s thought that no other member of the Jackson clan will be party to the lawsuit, which is expected to be filed with the LA court next week.

Responding to the lawsuit reports, Murray’s lawyer Ed Chernoff was dismissive, describing Jackson Snr’s action as “like throwing a bucket of water on a man drowning in the ocean”.
