Joe Jackson files wrongful death suit

March 30, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Michael Jackson's father is planning to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the King of Pop's personal physician, Dr. Conrad Murray.Lawyers for Joe Jackson say the suit accuses Murray of causing Michael Jackson's death by not calling an ambulance quickly enough when he found Jackson in distress.

Attorney Brian Oxman says if paramedics had reached Jackson right away he could have been revived.

A witness report leaked last week says Murray stopped CPR on Jackson to collect drug vials at the scene. The coroner concluded the cause of Jackson's death was acute propofol intoxication.

Murray is due back in court Monday to have a date set for his preliminary hearing.
