An attorney for Katherine Jackson says a wrongful death lawsuit is being considered – likely against her son Michael’s personal physician – because of the circumstances surrounding his demise.
Attorney Burt Levitch made the revelation Monday following a court hearing, where a judge approved a merchandising deal that will benefit the King of Pop’s estate.
“The possibility of a wrongful death action has been floated,” Levitch said, according to the Associated Press. “In that regard, no decision has been finalized … Dr. Murray’s name has been floated because he is under investigation.”
Authorities investigating Jackson’s June 25 death have been focusing on Murray, who they believe administered a powerful anesthetic to Michael the day he died. Levitch wouldn’t say whether concert promoter AEG might also be a defendant.
