Michael Jackson's father to sue for wrongful death

Posted on

Reuters reports Joe Jackson, the father of the late Michael Jackson, is planning to file a wrongful death suit against Conrad Murray, the doctor who administered the fatal dose of anesthetic that killed the pop icon. Murray has already been charged with manslaughter in the criminal case, and the death was ruled a homicide by L.A. officials. Jackson’s lawyer says their suit will be filed within 90 days, and has likened Murray’s actions to playing Russian roulette and “loading six bullets into a gun with only six chambers.”
