Dr. Conrad Murray Defense May Subpoena Nine Other Michael Jackson Doctors

by at . Comments

Dr. Conrad Murray's defense team has nine former doctors of Michael Jackson on its witness list for Murray's upcoming involuntary manslaughter trial.

Among the doctors on the list is Dr. Arnold Klein, Jackson's dermatologist and friend whose treatment of the star has long been subject to scrutiny.

The last also includes Dr. Neil Ratner, who toured with Jackson in 1996 and 1997, and Dr. David Adams of Las Vegas, Nev., both anesthesiologists.

Bad Doc

Ratner confirmed that Michael Jackson suffered from a sleep disorder, but wouldn't elaborate further. It's anticipated that Murray's lawyers, Ed Chernoff and Michael Flanagan, will grill Ratner about the specifics of his medical treatment.

In all, Dr. Murray's lawyers list 103 people who could be called at the trial, including a nurse practitioner, Cherilyn Lee, who claims Jackson asked her for Propofol in the weeks leading up to his death, but she refused to supply it.

Lee, a nurse practitioner and nutritionist who worked for Jackson, claimed in the days after his sudden death that he had asked her for Propofol in April 2009, was served with a subpoena to testify at the trial by Murray's defense.

"Cherilyn is prepared to testify at the trial and tell the truth. Cherilyn has never spoken with anyone from the District Attorney's office," a source said.

"She was interviewed in the weeks after Jackson's death by the coroner and the LAPD. Cherilyn hasn't heard from those agencies since that time."

Jury selection in the criminal trial against Dr. Conrad Murray begins on September 8, 2011, and is anticipated to take several weeks to select a jury.

Opening arguments are slated for the last week of September. The trial could last until Thanksgiving, with Murray facing up to four years in prison.

Despite the long witness list, Murray is the only doctor of Jackson's who has been criminally charged in connection with the King of Pop's death.

Thoughts? Dr. Conrad Murray ...

Doesnt it seem strange and bazar that Murray all of a sudden became an imcompetent Doctor that doesn't know how to give CPR? and that 911 call that took him so long to make? Think about it!

Also, it really does not matter what those other doctors did. Jackson did NOT die in their care. Jackson died in the care of MUrray and Murray did the injections.

IF Murray was a real doctor, Murray would have done what Ms. Cherilyn did when Jackson as for it if that is true. THAT is REAL medical person. I do not care if Jackson for it, the DOCTOR is the doctor NOT Jackson. Plus, Murray did the INJECTIONS which means it is on MURRAY's HANDs.

He is guilty as sin! But I do feel this could be a very difficult trial. Could be trouble for Michael because of the different doctors who will testify. Unbelieveable, but I am a true fan and I am 67 years old and still honor michael!! Am going to watch this trial with tears in my eyes!!

I don't care if 50 doctors were involved, at some point. Dr Conrad Murray should not have given Mj any Propofol. He took his time calling 911 or giving him Cpr. He is such a Liar and a Deceiver, too...

Bottom line is that he was provided care by that so called DR and he did not provide correct medical treatment as well as bed side support!! It does not matter what other Dr's treated MJ, they were not one's who killed him - Murray did and I'm not sure how that man can sleep at night - shame on him! I ask myself, it is was his child that this happened to, how would he feel and what would he do?????????????????
