Michael Jackson's former doctor CONRAD MURRAY has been banned from prescribing anaesthetics in Nevada.
Officials at the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners have restricted the physician's medical license, forbidding him from prescribing or administering anaesthetic agents, including Propofol - the drug which killed the King of Pop last summer (09).
Murray is still allowed to prescribe painkillers and anti-anxiety medications, reports TMZ.com.
The ban comes just days after representatives for California's Medical Board renewed a bid to prevent him from practicing medicine at all until his criminal trial, connected to Jackson's death, is concluded. He can no longer use or prescribe anaesthetics to patients in the state.
Murray pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter in February (10).
