Murray Wins Medical Licence Ruling

MICHAEL JACKSON's former physician CONRAD MURRAY has won a battle to keep his medical licence.
Murray, who stands accused of administering the anaesthetic Propofol which killed Jackson, was told he could no longer use or prescribe anaesthetics to California patients earlier this year (10) and the state's Medical Board officials recently moved to suspend the doctor's license indefinitely.
Board bosses filed papers earlier this month (Jun10) requesting an order that Murray "cease and desist from the practice of medicine" until his criminal trial connected to Jackson's death is concluded.
Murray pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter in February (10) and, in court on Monday (14Jun10), he faced California Attorney General Jerry Brown, who urged Judge Michael Pastor to revoke the physician's licence as part of his bail conditions.
During the hearing at a Los Angeles court, Murray's lawyer Ed Chernoff highlighted Murray's ability to practice medicine by recalling how his client came to a woman's aid after she passed out on a flight last month (May10).
But Murray's heroics did not help with his legal bid - Judge Pastor only allowed the doctor to keep his licence on the grounds that he did not have the jurisdiction to suspend it, according to TMZ.com.
A preliminary trial date to hear the involuntary manslaughter charges against Murray was set for 23 August (10).

mjmyhero1: Sorry my dear, but OJ was totally innocent. I did a lot of research on the OJ Simpson case & it's a real shame that the law hasn't bought the real killer(s) to justice. Ron Goldman used to be in a band & all of the band members were murdered including him. The police has yet to solve the murders of all of the band members. Whoever killed the other band members is who killed Ron & Nicole not OJ!!!! Seer James L. Avery say a police officer named Furhman killed both of them. Reguardless, it was not OJ

Like I said, he is going to get away with everything. Even murdering Michael Jackson. He is going to walk away with a slap on the wrist. Mark my words.What a disgrace.

LOVE FOR MICHAEL

This animal with a license to kill should be behind bars, if it were you or me or anyone else we would not be having this discussion but because it is Michael Jackson someone the media has repeatedly crucified without cause, he was always guilty before innocent but this idiot is innocent til proven guilty would be in jail...there is no justice for Michael Jackson because everyone in the DA's office is up for elect in November and if you research who their campaign contributors are you will find SONY, AEG BOTH ARE ALSO LINKED WITH MICHAEL JACKSON'S DEMISE BY TRICKING HIM INTO 50 WHEN IT WAS TO BE ONLY 15.SHOWS IN LONDON. LOOK AT IT THIS WAY, IS MICHAEL JACKSON WORTH MORE DEAD OR ALIVE? PRIOR TO HIS DEATH MICHAEL MADE ALL THE MONEY, AFTER HIS DEATH OVER A BILLION DOLLARS HAS BEEN MADE AND ALL THE MONEY WENT TO SONY, AEG, AND THE ESTATE LAWYERS, NOT THE CHILDREN, NOT KATHERINE AS STIPULATED IN ESTATE AND WILL,,,,THE LAWYERS LIE TO LINE THEIR OWN POCKETS....SO WE ASK YOU WHERE IS THE JUSTICE...I WOULD NEVER LET THIS MAN TOUCH MY CHILDREN OR ME, HE IS A MURDERER AND A LIAR WHO IN THE FIRST 8 HOURS OF MICHAEL JACKSON'S DEATH CHANGED HIS STORY 5 TIMES.... AND HE STILL IS CHANGING IT MAKING HIS PARISH IS TEXAS BELIEVE HE IS A VICTIM OF INJUSTICE WHEN HE IS THE INSTRUMENT OF MURDER... HE CHOSE MONEY OVER HIS HIPPOCRATIC OATH HE TOOK WHEN HE BECAME A DOCTOR IF YOU CAN EVEN CALL HIM THAT...

This story doesn't make any sense. If this judge has no jurisdiction to suspend his liscense why was the case bought to him in the first place. That's like going to your Dr. to dispute a traffic ticket. That's not his area. You all need to get it together!!!! We are talking about a murderer here. The demon who killed Michael Jackson, there is no room for any mistakes.

YEP!!!!!knew this would happen thanks to the Judges who let OJ get away with MURDER and now this jack*ss is gonna get away with killing our MICHAEL JACKSON see the pattern, someone is paying someone and shame on them, maybe he will pull an OJ and get arrested for something stupid to put him behind bars. He really should see how it feels to go to sleep with proforol, oh and have his Dr walk away and when he realized MJ was DEAD, cover it all up and our great system bought all his BULL, Truth will come out,What goes around Comes around...I HATE DR MURRAY as bad as OJ gets away with MURDER...MJ WE THE TRUE FANS WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER MAY YOU R.I.P, YOUR 1 YEAR IS APPROCHING I WILL CRY ALL DAY THANKS TO THAT MURDER,,
