An attorney for Michael Jackson's father Joe is preparing to file an official complaint against concert promoters AEG, accusing company bosses of violating U.S. law by overworking the late superstar as he prepared for his ill-fated London residency. Jackson suffered a cardiac arrest and died in June 2009, just days before he was due to kick-off the mammoth This Is It series of tour dates.

His death has been ruled a homicide and the singer's medic, Dr. Conrad Murray, has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter for administering the drug that ultimately led to his demise.

But Joe Jackson wants his son's concert bosses held accountable and his lawyer, Brian Oxman, is set to lodge a complaint with the United States Attorney General, alleging AEG executives were not in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Oxman alleges AEG heads knew about the "Thriller" star's struggle with prescription drugs, deeming him effectively disabled, but continued to pressure Jackson to stick to a grueling rehearsal schedule in preparation for the London shows.

Oxman is also planning to file a complaint with the Medical Board of California, claiming AEG bosses had such tight control of the singer's medical treatment, it became the unauthorized practice of medicine, reports TMZ. The attorney tells the website he will lodge the complaints with the government agencies this month, before the first anniversary of Jackson's death on June 25.

Wow I don't understand why people is trying to get recognized at someone elses expense. Latoya got somewhat recognize on spots on tv talkshows when Micheal was falsely accuse of malestation. And now his father is trying to get what, money or, more recognition of his record company like he did that day he was interview at his sons funeral.. I've seen the "THIS IS IT" documentary, Michael was total in control of his action in making HIS concert a success. HIS doctor, Murray or whatever his name is, should pay dearly and locked up. If Micheal had an addiction to pain medication, like his father is stating, then his doctor, that was in Micheal house, should of known, Key words IF he had. And if it wasn't perscribe to Micheal then that doctor should of never given it to him. EVIDENCE POINTS TO THE DOCTOR.

Why doesn't Joe Jackson let Michael rest in peace. Michael wasnt sick or disabled, he knew exactly what he was doing and getting himself into. Micheal was presented an option and took it. I understand Joe wants justice but it's not with the promoters, or AEG unless the company, knew that Jackson's doctor gave him that drug, and did nothing. Joe wants justice he need to file a complaint against the doctor who gave him that illegal drug that killed him. First LaToya and now his so called father. Let him rest in peace.
