Michael Jackson’s doctor subpoenaed

Dermatologist Arnold Klein forced to hand over records

Arnold Klein, the dermatologist who treated Michael Jackson for many years before his death, has been served with a subpoena in Los Angeles in the death investigation.

Klein was visited by a county coroner’s official seeking Jackson’s medical records for the case. The Chief coroner told reporters that Klein is being cooperative.

Klein’s attorney Richard Charnley told the Associated Press that the doctor will hand over medical records today (July 15).

The death investigation is centering on drugs, after many hospital-strength medications were reportedly found at the singer’s house following his death on June 25.

As reported yesterday, the Drug Enforcement Agency contacted pharmaceutical company Teva Pharmaceuticals about the drug Propofol after it was found in Jackson’s home. Two separate batches of the drug had previously been recalled after 40 patients became ill in Florida, Arizona and Missouri as a result of taking the drug.
