A lawyer for DR. CONRAD MURRAY has urged lawmakers not to suspend the medic's license - because his client is struggling to survive financially following the scandal over Michael Jackson's death.
Murray has pleaded not guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter amid accusations he administered the powerful anaesthetic Propofol to Jackson, which led to the singer's death last June (09). He has since been barred from giving patients such drugs.
California Attorney General Jerry Brown filed court papers last week (ends26Mar10) seeking to kick Murray out of medicine altogether, as part of the terms of his bail, branding the doctor's conduct "reprehensible".
But Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, is fighting the proposed ban, insisting his client is already "hanging on by a thread".
Chernoff argues authorities in Nevada and Texas, where Murray also has offices, could follow suit if Brown succeeds in getting his medical license taken away.
