Michael Jackson - California Officials File To Revoke Conrad Murray's Medical Licence
California officials have filed new legal papers against Michael Jackson's jailed former doctor Conrad Murray in a bid to permanently revoke his medical licence.
Murray is currently serving four years behind bars after he was convicted of administering the fatal dose of anaesthetic Propofol, which cost the King of Pop his life on 25 June, 2009.
The disgraced physician, who plans to resume his career once he is released, had his licence suspended in California earlier this year (12) and, in February (12), officials at the state attorney general's office hoped to make that motion permanent by alleging Murray failed to maintain adequate records, which is considered grounds for revocation.
And now officials have lodged new complaints with members of the Medical Board of California, accusing Murray of "repeated negligent acts" and "incompetence" for the "inappropriate administration of dangerous drugs".
A hearing has not yet been scheduled but the 59 year old's lawyer, Valerie Wass tells the Los Angeles Times her client will contest the new charges.
Murray's medical licence in Texas has also been suspended.
