Joe Jackson Filing a Wrongful-Death Lawsuit Against Michael Jackson’s Doctor

Michael Jackson’s doctor Conrad Murray has already been charged with involuntary manslaughter, but now Jackson family patriarch Joe is planning on suing Murray for wrongful death, in a civil trial that could run concurrent with the criminal trial. Says Joe Jackson’s lawyer, Brian Oxman: “The continuous administration of drugs over six weeks — he gave him [the anesthetic] propofol every night — that is Russian roulette, that is loading six bullets into a gun with only six chambers.” [Reuters]
