Washington: Late Michael Jackson’s dad Joe Jackson has demanded somewhere between 10 million dollars and 500 million dollars from Dr. Conrad Murray as compensation for loss of his son’s support.

According to new documents, which are part of Joe’s wrongful death lawsuit, he claims the money he seeks is in “the realistic range of provable damages”, a website reported.

Joe says 20 percent of his damages are for loss of support, 40 percent are for emotional distress and 40 percent are for “loss of comfort, aid, society and companionship”.

Dr. Murray says he’s broke and can’t settle anything because his insurance company is refusing to cover him.

Joe’s lawyer, Brian Oxman, also says he may take the depositions of more than 60 people who have info regarding Jackson’s death.
