Michael Jackson - Joe Jackson Refiles Wrongful Death Suit

Michael Jackson's father Joe has refiled a wrongful death lawsuit in California after a federal judge insisted the case needed to be heard in a state court.
Joe Jackson launched legal action against the star's personal physician Dr. Conrad Murray in a federal court in August (10), accusing him of administering a fatal dose of anaesthetic Propofol, which led to Michael's death in June 2009.
Jackson alleges he was being supported by the Thriller hitmaker at the time of his passing - a claim which gives him the necessary legal standing to pursue a wrongful death suit.
U.S. District Judge John F. Walter ruled last month (Nov10) that some of the legal issues needed to be handled in a state court - and Jackson's lawyer refiled the documents at Los Angeles County Superior Court on Tuesday (30Nov10), according to TMZ.com.
The lawsuit has also been amended to include Applied Pharmacy Services in Las Vegas, a company which allegedly sold Propofol to Murray.
Joe Jackson is said to be seeking damages between $10 million (£6.7 million) and $500 million (£333.3 million) in the suit for emotional distress, loss of support and "loss of comfort, aid, society and companionship".
Dr. Murray, who has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the star's death, is set to go on trial in January (11).
