Conrad Murray - Conrad Murray to plead the Fifth at Jackson trial

Conrad Murray will plead the Fifth at Michael Jackson's wrongful death lawsuit trial.

Although the shamed doctor has been called to take the stand at Michael's mother Katherine's civil case against AEG Live - which accuses the company of being responsible for negligently hiring Conrad to care for Michael - he will not answer questions because the responses could affect his appeal, according to TMZ.

The medic has already served a year and a half in prison after being found guilty of involuntary manslaughter following Michael's death, but his lawyer Valerie Wass is set to file documents arguing she is appealing his conviction and whatever he says in Katherine's lawsuit could be used against him.

Michael's son, Prince Michael, is expected to give evidence on conversations he had with his father about the concert promoter.

A source previously said: ''Prince absolutely plans on testifying.

''Prince very much wants to take the stand and plans to tell jurors about specific conversations he had with his father about AEG. Prince will also testify about the fateful day his father died, as he was an eyewitness to the efforts that were made to save his life.''

The 16-year-old's siblings, Paris, 15, and Blanket, 11, aren't expected to testify, however.

In the lawsuit, Katherine, 82, contends that AEG Live - which was behind the late singer's 'This Is It' comeback concerts at The O2 arena in London - were responsible for Dr. Murray and failed to properly vet the physician before hiring him.

The 'Thriller' hitmaker died in June 2009 after being administered a lethal dose of Propofol by Murray.

The trial is set to begin on April 2.

Conrad should be on death row !!! Tired of the Jacksons' selling off all of what Michael Jackson worked for ! the tributes are too sad to hear his voice and he isnt there! think AEG decited to get rid of MJ to make more money off him and make all the think Michael was on drugs and got conrad to kill him they shouldnt ever get a penny off Michael again..his money should go to a Michael Jackson World Hospital for Children like he wanted and Neverland should be a museum to visit in his name!! wish the Jacksons' would stop selling all MJ worked for and keep Neverland for us the fans!!!!

Oh really!!!What ever happened to him feeling so sorry for Katherine and how she reminds him of his own mother and he can understand what she must be going through losing HER CHILD like that. Less not forget all that love he claimed to have for MJ and his children and how they loved and trusted him. Well plead the 5th,6th, or the 7th Murray because your lawyer will never get that appeal you are asking for, so stay your behind right where the judge put you. I would think if his sympathy is toward MJ's family he could clear himself by admitting that he was doing what he was told by AEG to do. To me he has proven that he is willing to protect AEG against Ms.Katherine's lawsuit, so he has decided whose side he will be taking and if this is the case then HE WAS HIRED BY AEG AND THEY MADE HIM THE SCAPEGOAT SO THE ENDING IS CONRAD MURRAY WILL LOSE HIS LICENSE AND HIS MIND, MS. KATHERINE LOSES HER CHILD, PRINCE, PARIS AND BLANKET WILL LOSE THEIR DAD AND AEG WILL MOVE ON TO THE NEXT MONEY MAKING ADVENTURE!
