Joe Jackson's civil lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray over the death of pop icon Michael Jackson can now move forward, has exclusively learned.

United States District Judge John F. Walter gave the Jackson patriarch the go-ahead to proceed with the case now that the proper paperwork has been submitted.

On August 4, 2010, Judge Walter requested that Jackson prove that the United States District Court, Central District of California had jurisdiction in the case because in Jackson’s original complaint, he failed to “allege the defendant’s principal place of business.”

Weeks later, Jackson's attorney Brian Oxman drafted and provided Judge Walker with a first amended complaint in response to the inquiry.

Today, Judge Walker ruled he was satisfied with the paperwork and is allowing the lawsuit to proceed.

Joe Jackson's civil lawsuit targets Dr. Murray as well as his businesses, Acres Home Heart & Vascular Institute and GCA Holdings, LLC for the wrongful death of Michael Jackson.
