Dr. Conrad Murray will not appear in court again until next year.

The 57-year-old cardiologist - who is accused of administering a lethal amount of the anaesthetic Propofol to Michael Jackson prior to his death on June 25, 2009 - appeared at Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday (23.08.10) for a brief session, where a preliminary hearing date of January 4 was set by Judge Michael Pastor.

The preliminary hearing will see prosecutors lay out some of the evidence against Dr. Murray - who has pleaded not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter - before the judge decides whether to send him to trial.

He was charged in February with administering a lethal dose of the powerful drug to the King of Pop, but his lawyers claim the doctor did not give him anything that "should have killed him".

In the court yesterday, the physician's legal team won the right to get fluid samples from Michael Jackson as part of their defence.

The late 'Thriller' hitmaker's family, including parents Joe and Katherine Jackson, attended yesterday's meeting, while the singer's fans gathered outside the courthouse.

Upon leaving the court, Dr. Murray was subject to a torrent of verbal abuse, with the crowd outside branding him a "murderer".

Despite being implicated in Jackson's death, Dr. Murray has been allowed to continue practicing medicine and has not had his license revoked.

Bodhi: You pathetic idiot!!! The word Bodhisattva means any, "being destined for enlightenment." You are freaking clueless!!! We all here can take a hammer to your head to try to knock some sense into you & you still wouldn't get it. How dare you refer to this situation as some juicy soap opera, full of suspense, can't wait to tune in for the next episode. A man was murdered. There are 3 children who are left without a father. You really disgust me. I bet your parents are disgusted by you as well. I think any Buddhist would agree that your prescence here & comments totally goes against their practices & beliefs. Idiot, namnaste refers to a greeting, with respect & humility, qualities that you obviously do not have. You talk about karma; guess what yours will come soon. In the mean time shut the hell up!!!!!!!
