Jacksons v AEG Timeline Legal

Jackson Senior’s lawyer says Conrad Murray guilty of murder

By | Published on Thursday 1 April 2010

As expected, Michael Jackson’s father Joe has confirmed he plans to sue Dr Conrad Murray in relation to his role in the death of the late king of pop.

Murray, of course, faces involuntary manslaughter charges over allegations he negligently administered the drugs that killed Jackson. Jackson Senior will sue for damages for the losses he has apparently suffered as a result of the wrongful death Murray allegedly caused.┬áSpeaking to Reuters, Joe Jackson’s lawyer Brian Oxman said yesterday he believed that the Doc’s role in Jacko’s death actually amounted to second-degree murder.

Speaking about how Murray had given Jackson a shot of propofol to help cure a bout of insomnia, he told the news agency: “That is Russian roulette, that is loading six bullets into a gun with only six chambers. [Murray’s actions were] reckless, and it amounts to second-degree murder”.

Jackson Senior is expected to sue for loss of companionship, consortium and economic support. It’s not thought any other members of the Jackson family will be party to the civil litigation, which could run alongside Murray’s criminal case.
