Michael Jackson's longtime dermatologist is suing a plastic surgeon for slander in connection with the pop star's death.Dr. Arnold Klein claims Dr. Steven Hoefflin made statements to a British newspaper that made it seem that Klein somehow contributed to Jackson's death.

According to the lawsuit, Hoefflin told The Sun that Jackson's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, likely would have obtained the drug propofol from Klein and would have asked him how to administer it.

Jackson died from a lethal dose of propofol. Klein is seeking unspecified damages. So far no comment from Hoefflin.
