Joe Jackson, the 84-year-old father of Michael Jackson, has officially withdrawn a wrongful death lawsuit against his son’s former physician, Conrad Murray, in the pop singer’s infamous drug overdose in June 2009.
According to court records, Joe Jackson had filed an official request for dismissal of the lawsuit, which was granted Monday. A federal judge had originally dismissed the case, but it was re-filed in a state court in Los Angeles, CA in June 2010. The lawsuit originally sought unspecified civil damages against the doctor, who allegedly gave the Michael Jackson a fatal dose of propofol – an anesthetic drug – without proper life-saving equipment.
