Joe Jackson Drops Wrongful Death Suit

Joe Jackson and Dr. Conrad Murray

Joe Jackson, father to the late pop icon Michael Jackson, has dropped his wrongful death lawsuit against Conrad Murray. The records in the court show Jackson's request for a dismissal was granted Monday, yet the filings do not elaborate on a reason for dropping pursuit of the case. Initially, Papa Joe filed the lawsuit against Dr. Conrad Murray in June 2010 on the anniversary of his son's death.

A federal judge dismissed the case but it was re-filed in a state court in Los Angeles. Jackson was seeking civil damages against Murray for giving the singer/songwriter a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol without the proper life-saving equipment.
