Joe Jackson finally sees some light at the end of the tunnel in his bid to sue his son Michael Jackson’s former cardiologist, Dr. Conrad Murray, for wrongful death. A Los Angeles judge has rejected a motion from the doctor’s legal team to dismiss Joe’s argument.
Insisting that Murray is responsible for the death of his son, Joe’s arguments will heard by Superior Court Judge Michael Johnson on Wednesday, March 23, before making a final ruling on whether the case will go to trial or not.
Jackson’s lawsuit, which was filed in November 2010, seeks unspecified damages against Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter in the death of the King of Pop in a separate criminal case.
Joe Jackson claims Murray was negligent in administering anaesthetic propofol to his son, who died in June 2009.
