Jacksons v AEG Timeline Legal

Joe Jackson wins access to Jacko medical files

By | Published on Monday 22 February 2010

Joe ‘father of Michael’ Jackson has won one his court battles relating to his late son’s death, the one fighting for access to Jacko’s medical files.

An LA judge had previously postponed ruling on whether to hand over the medical notes to the singer’s father, but at the end of last week decided he would. The Jackson estate had objected to Joe’s claim, but the judge said there was no case to withhold the documents under privacy laws because Jacko was deceased.

It’s possible Jackson Snr wants to see the medical records to get some sort of psychological closure over his son’s premature demise. But it’s much more likely he’s putting together a wrongful death lawsuit against Dr Conrad Murray – the doctor accused of negligently administering the drugs that killed the singer – in a bid to raise some mega bucks in damages, presumably for the family rather than the Jacko estate, in which Joe has little interest or control.
