Michael Jackson's Dad Gets Medical Records
Posted Feb 19th 2010 5:46PM by TMZ Staff

Joe Jackson is entitled to get copies of Michael Jackson's medical records ... according to the judge in the Michael Jackson estate case.

According to the judge's ruling, Joe Jackson is only entitled to records from UCLA made on the day Jackson died.

Joe Jackson wants the records for a possible wrongful death case.

UPDATE: Howard Weitzman, lawyer for the estate, tells TMZ, "The estate has no problem with the Court's ruling which substantially limits what Mr. Jackson was asking for."

How come LAPD has never mentioned about the detailed TESTIMONY OF MJ's chief who was that morning there?

Joe Jackson Gets Michael's Medical Records
A judge on Friday afternoon granted Joe Jackson the right to see Michael Jackson's UCLA Medical Center records from the day he died.

The singer's father sought the records to pursue a pair of lawsuits surrounding the pop singer's death last June, including separate invasion-of-privacy and wrongful-death suits.

He also wants them to help obtain a monthly stipend of $20,000.

The Jackson estate had filed to quash the release of the medical records, arguing that the request was irrelevant to Joe Jackson's lawsuit against a news organization for publishing death photos immediately after the singer died.

Joe Jackson's lawyer, Brian Oxman, told TheWrap he was pleased with the ruling.

"The judge obviously took a great deal of concern, and felt this was an important issue and treated it as such," Oxman said.

"The court ordered that records be delivered from UCLA Medical Center to his chambers, where he will examine them to determine if there were any communications that Michael Jackson had made to the doctors there. We are fairly certain that there were no communications because he was long deceased before he got to UCLA Medical Center," he added. "In the absence of those communications, the judge has said he would release the records to us."

At that point, Oxman said, his team will have an emergency room physician review the records. "We then will make a determination as to what took place regarding his death and promptly proceed, if warranted, in starting legal proceedings," he said.

There were three grounds to the judge's ruling: privacy, physician-patient privilege and relevance.

On the issue of privacy, Judge Mitchell L. Beckloff ruled that Michael Jackson's right to privacy died with him.

Although doctor-patient privilege does survive a person, in this case Joe Jackson argued that there was no privilege because his son was dead when he arrived at UCLA; therefore no privileged communications took place. This is the reason the judge will review the documents in camera, to determine whether there was any communication between Michael Jackson and anyone at UCLA.

On the question of relevance, the issue is Joe Jackson's intent to file a wrongful-death suit. He has standing for such a filing assuming he was "dependent" upon his son for financial support. The judge ruled that knowledge of the events of June 25 -- the day Michael Jackson died -- is relevant to such a cause.

Its saying MJ was DOA at UCLA hospital. Why didnt LAPD secure the house as crime scene??
