Joe Jackson has filed a lawsuit against Doctor Conrad Murray, his late son's personal physician, according to a new report.

Britain's News of the World is reporting Jackson has detailed a 13-page suit, alleging Murray caused The King of Pop's death by giving him drugs and not getting him to hospital sooner.

In it, it is revealed Jackson was almost brought back from the dead when medics managed to restart his heart a full hour after he "flat-lined" following a cardiac arrest last June.

Hospital doctors triggered a weak pulse for ten minutes but it could not be sustained, the newspaper said.

"This evidence is damning," Joe, 81, has told the tabloid.

"They should lock him up and throw away the key. It's disgusting what happened here."

The lawsuit also states Murray:

FAILED to tell paramedics he had given the singer Propofol, the anesthetic coroners ruled killed the King Of Pop.

OBSTRUCTED justice by giving five different versions of events about the star's death.

ORDERED bodyguards to clear up and hide the Propofol bottles before paramedics were called to the scene in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills.

LIED to Richelle Cooper, the hospital doctor who took over the stricken star's treatment, telling her Jacko had not been ill when he had pneumonia, bronchitis and brain swelling.

HOURS before Jacko's death, Murray was leering at strippers.

The lawsuit was filed by Brian Oxman, the attorney who represented Jacko at his 2005 child molestation trial.

It said that Alberto Alvarez, a bodyguard who first raised the alarm, was told to clean up the death scene.

The suit states: "Alvarez told police that before he called 911 defendant instructed him to conceal bottles of Propofol and place them in a bag.

"In an outrageous departure from the standard of care, defendant stopped giving CPR and cleaned up the room so the medications would not be discovered.

"Defendant placed the previously unused wires of a pulse oximeter on Michael Jackson's fingers.

"Alberto Alvarez told police defendant asked him to call 911 only after the drugs were concealed."

Murray is already charged with involuntary manslaughter over Jacko's death.

He has 90 days to respond to Joe's filing.
