Joe Jackson Filing Wrongful Death Lawsuit Today

Michael Jackson's dad Joe Jackson is determined to get his hands on some money, and Dr. Murray is his target.

Joe will file a wrongful death lawsuit today against Dr. Murray and will ask for unspecified damages.

According to TMZ Joe won't include AEG in the suit, even though he thinks they're partially responsible for his son's death.

The suit claims, "Mr. Jackson believes there are other parties responsible for Michael Jackson's death but has not yet gathered sufficient information regarding their potential liability or responsibility." The suit says the complaint will be amended when sufficient info is gathered.

In the lawsuit Joe claims that Dr. Murray withheld vital information from the doctors and EMTs who were trying to save Jackson's life--the most important being that he had administered Propofol. He also mentions that Dr. Murray "cleaned up the scene" right before medics arrived.

Ironically it was Joe Jackson that introduced Michael to Dr. Murray in Las Vegas, after Michael mentioned needing a doctor for his children back in 2006.
