Jackson doc seeking records of Demerol treatments

LOS ANGELES - A judge said Tuesday he will review medical records from Michael Jackson’s longtime dermatologist before deciding whether the documents should be turned over to defense attorneys seeking to show the singer was addicted to a powerful painkiller at the time of his death.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor will review files from Dr. Arnold Klein that cover the final nine months of Jackson’s life.

Klein is fighting the release of the files to attorneys for Dr. Conrad Murray, citing patient confidentiality rules.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of the pop star.
