LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge is expected to decide today whether Michael Jackson's father should receive medical records related to his son's death.
Joe Jackson's attorney issued a subpoena last month asking for all his son's medical records from UCLA Medical Center, where Michael Jackson died on June 25.
Attorney Brian Oxman sought the files as part of an effort to obtain a monthly stipend for the Jackson family patriarch.
Attorneys for Michael Jackson's estate want the judge to quash the subpoenas and argue they violate privacy rights and are not relevant to the allowance request. If they win, they want Oxman and Joe Jackson to pay nearly $9,000 in legal fees.
