Michael Jackson's father drops lawsuit against Conrad Murray

LOS ANGELES ( - Michael Jackson 's doctor Conrad Murray has one less thing to worry about.

Joe Jackson , the father of the deceased pop singer Michael Jackson , has dropped his wrongful death lawsuit against Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for the musician's death.

In a court document filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Monday and obtained by TheWrap, Jackson asks that the suit be dismissed without prejudice.

The elder Jackson brought the suit in June 2010, a year after his son's death at the age of 50, asking for unspecified damages and a jury trial.

It is unclear why Jackson decided to drop the suit; his attorney has not yet replied to TheWrap's request for comment. However, the phrase "you can't get blood from a stone" comes to mind - Murray is currently in jail, serving his sentence for involuntary manslaughter.

Murray was found guilty of causing Jackson's death last year. The singer died of acute propofol intoxication. Murray admitted to administering the anesthetic to Jackson on an almost daily basis in the weeks leading up to his death, and was found to have been negligent in treating Jackson, deviating from the standard of care on multiple fronts.
