A judge has delayed a ruling on whether Michael Jackson's father can obtain medical records related to the death of his superstar son.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff said Thursday he wants to consider arguments Joe Jackson's attorney raised. He said he will issue a ruling next week.

Joe Jackson's attorney Brian Oxman sought Michael's medical records as part of an effort to obtain a monthly stipend for the Jackson family patriarch.

He said 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.


Attorneys for Michael'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.
