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.”
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.
