Dr. Conrad Murray is going after Michael Jackson‘s longtime physician and friend, Dr. Arnold Klein, claiming Klein is at least partly to blame for the singer‘s death and should be a defendant in Joe Jackson’s wrongful death lawsuit.
In legal papers filed today and obtained by TMZ … Dr. Murray challenges Joe Jackson’s decision not to name Dr. Klein as one of the physicians allegedly responsible for his son’s death.
And Murray continues quoting from Joe’s lawsuit that Dr. Klein “prescribed or may have over medicated Michael Jackson including to such point that AEG Live, LLC had to hire Dr. Murray in order to separate Michael Jackson from Arnold Klein.”
And Murray goes on to quote Joe’s lawsuit which claims “AEG Live, LLC read Michael Jackson the proverbial ‘riot act’ to get him to stop subjecting himself to overmedication by Dr. Arnold Klein.”
So with all that, Dr. Murray concludes, “The plaintiff [Joe Jackson] does not explain why, given these allegations, Dr. Arnold Klein is not a required party to be added to accord proper relief.”
In other words … why didn’t Joe sue Arnie?
As TMZ first reported, Dr. Klein shot Michael full of Demerol — 51 injections in a 3-month span, right up until the week of his death.
Dr. Murray also points the finger at other doctors who treated Michael Jackson, citing TMZ stories revealing that 7 doctors other than Murray were fueling MJ with meds at or near the time of his death.
Murray’s team also asked the court to dismiss Joe’s wrongful death lawsuit — claiming Jackson doesn’t have the right to file because he’s not a beneficiary of MJ’s estate.

Dr. Arnold Klein just responded to the Twitter-tongue-lashing he got from Liz Taylor yesterday — saying he didn’t supply Michael Jackson with lovers.
Klein just counter-Twittered, “Dearest Elizabeth Michael CHOSE whom he loved; I only SUPPLIED medical care. May God bless you and Michael. Your friend Arnie.”
Yesterday, Liz Twit-attacked Klein by saying, “Dr. Arnie Klein declared on May 2 that he did not betray Michael Jackson by saying publicly that he had a homosexual relationship with someone in Arnie’s office. It seems he supplies not only women (Debbie Rowe), but men too … how convenient.”

Dr. Arnold Klein‘s office manager — who claims he was Michael Jackson‘s lover — is facing such intense death threats that he’s moving from place to place … hiding out from angry MJ fans.
A source close to Dr. Klein and Jason Pfeiffer tells TMZ incensed Jackson fans have walked right up to Pfeiffer’s home and knocked on his door — and they’ve also tracked him down at his friends’ houses.
Since Jason went public last week with allegations of an affair with Michael, we’re told violent and homophobic threats have poured into Dr. Klein’s office by phone, fax, and email. According to the source one voicemail said, “I’m gonna put a bullet in your heads.”
Klein and Pfeiffer have hired bodyguards, and reported the threats to the FBI. We’re told Pfeiffer is currently at a private location with friends.

Michael Jackson‘s brother Jermaine had a few words for Dr. Arnie Klein this morning regarding his accusations that MJ was gay — most of them of the four-letter variety.
