During his child molestation trial in 2005, Michael complained of abdominal pains and was taken to the Marian Medical Center in Santa Maria. When he got there, the hospital staff allegedly decided that he was more important than a mother of eight and quickly moved her out of the way to make room for Jacko and his demand for not one but TWO emergency room beds.
74 year old Manuela Gomez Ruiz died later that night.
The lawsuit claims she was "treated like cargo:"
Her family is accusing Jackson and the hospital of inflicting emotional distress and of negligence, elder abuse, false imprisonment and conspiracy.
According to hospital spokeswoman Amy Silva: "We are confident the care provided to Mrs Ruiz was exceptional."
