MJ Lawsuit Tossed

A judge has ruled that a lawsuit filed by a family against Michael Jackson and a Santa Maria, Calif., medical center cannot continue as filed.

Jacko and Manuela Gomez Ruiz were reportedly booked into the same room in critical care at the Mariam Medical Center during the singer’s 2005 child molestation trial.

The family’s suit claims Ruiz was moved and received inadequate treatment, and then died soon after, during the "outrageous, circus-like atmosphere" that ensued when the King of Pop came on the scene.

The plaintiffs have been granted 30 days to redraft a complaint.
