Michael Jackson's Dad to Jail Dr. Conrad Murray

March 23, 2011 (7:42 am) GMT
The King of Pop's father, Joe Jackson, is struggling to sue the doctor who he alleged to be responsible for the death of his son.

's dad has been given a boost in his bid to file a wrongful death civil suit against cardiologist Dr. Conrad Murray.

Joe Jackson maintains Murray is responsible for the death of his son, and now a Los Angeles judge has rejected a motion from the doctor's lawyers to dismiss the argument. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Johnson is scheduled to hear arguments on Wednesday, March 23, before making a final ruling.

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 alleges Murray was negligent in administering anaesthetic propofol to his son, who died in June 2009.
