Dr. Conrad Murray: Hangin' By a Thread

by at . Comments

As Dr. Conrad Murray’s April 5 court date approaches, lawyers for Michael Jackson’s former personal physician have filed legal papers fighting California Attorney General and medical board attempts to have his medical license revoked.

Their rationale? Murray's financial difficulties.

“[Murray] is, without fear of overstatement, hanging by a thread,” his attorney wrote. “His ability to pay for his own defense depends almost entirely on [Murray's] ability to continue to treat patients.” Murray also owes child support payments.

Dr. Conrad Murray pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter charges stemming from Jackson’s 2009 death, ruled a homicide after the singer died of “acute Propofol intoxication.” Murray is believed to have given Jackson Propofol.

While losing his medical license in California won’t affect Murray’s finances directly - he has no patients or clinics in the state - Murray fears the medical board ruling would have a “domino effect” in states where he does practice, Texas and Nevada.

In fact, California’s move already reached Nevada, where the medical board filed the formal complaint against Murray alleging that the doctor failed to report delinquent payments in his child support when filing to renew his medical license.

That could result in the revocation of a Nevada license for Dr. Conrad Murray.

“If Dr. Murray is unable to practice medicine in Texas, and especially Nevada, he likely will face the inability to adequately defend himself of the charges facing him in the Superior Court of California,” Murray’s lawyers wrote.

In addition to administering Jackson Propofol, a powerful sedative usually reserved for hospital use, court papers have also revealed that Murray is accused of halting CPR on Jackson in order to hide vials of sedatives before paramedics arrived.


This is getting a bit more scbveutije, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview' that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you're listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.


Dr. Murray can not get away with MURDER. The LAPD as usual didn't preserve the crime scene adequately. MJs security should have did some preserving on their own. Why did they take instructions from Dr. Murray? What is wrong with this picture??


he needs 2 hangin alright,but not by a thread.




Murderous bastard! Skin him alive and then hang him by his balls!


he's not just a piss poor dr. but a DEAD BEAT FATHER TOO.lock him up and let him rot in JAIL.


Dr. Murray injected MJ with the Propofol. He died of an overdose of Propofol. This should be a murder trial.


The creep has money hid down in the caribbean. Who he think he fooling.
