Michael Jackson's brother RANDY is confident justice will prevail in the ongoing legal case against DR. CONRAD MURRAY, despite expressing his disappointment at a recent court ruling allowing the physician to keep his medical licence.
Murray, who stands accused of administering the powerful anaesthetic Propofol which led to Jackson's death, has pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter, but California authorities wanted to ban the doctor from treating patients as part of his bail conditions until the case was fully resolved.
Judge Michael Pastor allowed Murray to keep his licence, but admitted his decision only came about because he did not have the jurisdiction to issue a suspension.
Members of the late superstar's family, including Michael's parents Katherine and Joe, were present for the hearing, and although Randy Jackson is angry at the latest outcome, he insists he still has faith in the U.S. justice system.
In a statement released on Monday (21Jun10), he writes, "The recent court proceedings have been difficult for us as a family. However, it is a necessary process that we are well prepared to endure in our fight for justice for Michael.
"Despite our strong feelings about the outcome, we have continued respect and faith in Judge Michael Pastor, the Deputy District Attorney David Walgren and our judicial system."
