A judge has delayed a ruling on whether Michael Jackson's father can obtain medical records related to the death of his superstar son.
Joe Jackson's attorney Brian Oxman sought Michael Jackson's medical records as part of an effort to obtain a monthly stipend for the Jackson family patriarch.
He says his client has a right to know more about his son's death and the records could also determine how to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
Jackson's estate opposed releasing the records.
