I can see why Michael's lawyers are furious actually.  Joe asked for ALL of Michael's medical records...not just the ones concerning his death.  Why would he need those?  Just because they're family doesn't mean Michael would want them to see his entire medical history...every procedure he's had done, every medication he's been prescribed, every infection, etc.  Judging by what they say in their letter, MJ's lawyers seem to think Joe wants them for a shady purpose, probably to sell info, or maybe write a book, since he was cut out of the will.  Joe is asking for the autopsy photos for goodness sake!  Why on earth would he want to see those?  I bet his lawyers can guess how much they would be worth, and maybe that's where they see this going.  The family conducted their own autopsy, so what do they think the other one is going to say?  I presume KJ would have access to both anyway.  This says to me that Joe is not in on the hoax, if there is one, and frankly that doesn't surprise me much.  Maybe he caught wind of something, a slip-up by the children perhaps, and got suspicious.  I really don't know, but I think this is huge news and we need to think about this some more.

If MY son had died in suspicious circumstances i would want to see EVERYTHING!

Including the autopsy report and photos and all medical records.

I would want the truth and ALL the truth about what happened to my son.

Well sure, I can understand that...but isn't Michael supposed to be alive?  And if he isn't, why isn't Katherine asking for the files?  It doesn't make sense to me that Joe would be the one to subpoena UCLA, especially since he was left out of the will and is fighting for an allowance.  I'd say the lawyers have good reason to suspect Joe isn't just doing this for investigative purposes.  Either way, I still think it strongly suggests Joe doesn't know anything about a hoax.

IMO, if he was so interested in Michael's "medical condition(s)" he should've talked to Michael himself.  That is a blatant violation of Michael's privacy and in violation of HIPPA laws.  Michael was an adult.  His parents should not be privy to his personal medical history prior to the events of 6/25/09.  Some things should remain confidential.  If he is indeed deceased,having his medical records won't bring him back, so what's the real motive?

Completely agree.  Michael was a grown man, not a child...his medical history is none of Joe's business.  MIchael was a very private person, I'm sure he'd be mortified if Joe and his lawyer got their hands on those.  Now I can see that Joe might subpoena the coroner's office, because they're the ones who have the autopsy findings, not UCLA.  But wouldn't those be available to the family without a subpoena anyway?  I would think at the very least Katherine would be allowed to see the information, unless maybe it's under lock and key until the investigation is over.  Something about this is very fishy to me.

The family has every right to the medical records.  When my mother died I was given a copy of the full set of hospital records, which contained her medical history and the full autopy report.  There were no forms to sign.  This is in the US also, where HIPAA laws are strongly enforced and this was a good hospital.  We had many questions as to the cause of death (hospital and/or prior medical negligence, or natural consequences of her illness).  That is why we requested, and were given, her full medical records, without the need for a subpoena.  I don't see why the Estate would argue against this.

That's not exactly true.  Unless Michael signed an authorization for Joe to access his records he is not entitled to them.  I believe it is different for a child to retrieve a parent's records.  Under California law, a personal representative of the deceased, ie. an executor or administrator of the estate, or a beneficiary, are the only ones legally entitled to them.  At least that's my understanding of the HIPAA laws.  That's why it doesn't make sense for Joe to subpoena them...it's very suspicious since Katherine is well in her rights to access them because she was named in the will.

Did anyone hear anything further regarding the subpoenas Joe served UCLA?  He requested they give Michael's medical records to him by Jan. 11th.  I wonder if he backed down after MJ's lawyer's stern letter.
