Michael Jackson sued by dead woman’s family
Posted by Dresonic on February 22, 2007
The singer was admitted to California’s Marian Medical Centre with flu symptoms two years ago, reports MSNBC.
Ruiz, 73, had suffered a heart attack and was on life support, she was moved from her two-bed trauma unit so the star could be accomodated, her relatives are alleging.
Their lawsuit against Jackson and the hospital claims an abuse of celebrity status and seeks unspecified damages.
The family claims that she was suddenly moved to make way for Jackson on February 15, 2005. Ruiz then suffered a second heart attack and died later that day, according to MSNBC.
The singer’s hospital admission caused a cancellation of a court hearing over his child molestation trial.
The medical center dismissed the lawsuit as “another frivolous claim to generate publicity”.
