London: Late King of Pop Michael Jackson’s father Joe has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the star’s doctor.
In his complaint, Joe, who is seeking damages of more than 75,000 dollars, alleges that Dr Conrad Murray was negligent in administering his son with the anaesthetic propofol and other drugs, the BBC reported.
He also accused him of secrecy and poor training and claimed that Dr Murray’s clinics in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Houston, Texas, did not adequately supervise him.
The case will run parallel with the criminal trial against Dr Murray, which is expected to begin next year.
A spokeswoman for the doctor said she would not comment until his lawyers had reviewed the lawsuit.
