Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Cass County Court will decide if the name Michael Jackson can be brought up at a trial for a Fargo surgeon, accused of drugging and raping his wife.

Doctor Jon Norberg is accused of having sex with his wife, Alonna, while she was on propofol, a powerful sedative.

Jackson overdosed on the drug in 2009.

His doctor was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for his part in Jackson's death.

Norberg's attorney is now asking for that trial be left out.

They'll discuss it at a pre-trial hearing next Thursday.

Norberg is charged in Cass County with gross sexual imposition and reckless endangerment.

Norberg's trial begins November 5th.
