Joe Jackson Seeking Up To $500 Million For Wrongful Death Suit

Michael Jackson's father is demanding upto $500 million (£333.3 million) in compensation in his wrongful death lawsuit against the King of Pop's personal physician DR. CONRAD MURRAY.
Joe Jackson launched legal action against Murray in August (10), accusing him of administering the fatal dose of anaesthetic Propofol, which led to the singer's death in June 2009.
The family patriarch 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.
And, in new documents obtained by TMZ.com, Jackson is said to be seeking damages in the region of $10 million (£6.7 million) and $500 million (£333.3 million) - an amount he claims is in "the realistic range of provable damages".
Jackson attributes 20 per cent of the compensation for loss of support, 40 per cent for emotional distress, and 40 per cent for "loss of comfort, aid, society and companionship".
However, he may struggle to win the cash from Murray - the medic insists he is penniless and can't afford to settle the case because insurance company bosses refuse to cover him.
Murray has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter stemming from Jackson's death and is awaiting a preliminary hearing in January (11) to determine if he will face trial.

When Dr.Conrad Murray, faces the Judge on Jan. 11. 2011. I will be so glad. the nerve of this man. lieing saying he did not do it. Mr. Jackson should take him to the bank for the wrongful death suit. Get'em Joseph! Justice for Michael. i watched the new viedo of your grandson Austin Brown. he does not have the showman ship of the stage, as Michael did. but he will continue. to be a good entertainer.Congradulations to him on his attemp. and Lot's of Love to his Mother Maureen "Rebbie" Jackson. forever. i like the her rebbie sing. she is good singer. but Janet is better in her movies why did i get married 2, I just want to see for colored girls. latoya's song should be play as a truibute to her brother michael. will the show of the Jackson's 4 be aired this fall on A&E channel. I think that 3T is better than alston. but they are family . together they stand united. as family god bless
