Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson Hearing Postponed

A judge in California has postponed the latest hearing in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case to give lawyers more time to wade through hours of the singer's tour rehearsal footage.
The Thriller hitmaker's physician Dr. Conrad Murray is accused of administering the fatal dose of anaesthetic that killed the superstar in 2009, just weeks before he was due to hit the stage in London for his This Is It comeback concerts.
Murray is set to stand trial later this year (11) after pleading not guilty to a charge of involuntary manslaughter, and last month (Jun11), lawyers won permission to show raw, previously unseen footage of the King of Pop's show rehearsals.
Prosecutors hope the footage will show Jackson was fit and healthy in the weeks leading up to his death, while the defence claims the tapes will demonstrate he was sick - but it could take weeks for all the lawyers to view the relevant video clips.
Defence attorney Nareg Gourjian says, "So far, we have found a lot of important stuff. There are about eight to 10 different cameras that were recording the rehearsals and each one has different views and different footage. So it is critical that we review the footage from each camera."
A hearing in the case was scheduled to take place on 12 July (11), but on Wednesday (06Jul11), Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor accepted requests to push it back until 20 July (11) to give both sides more time to view the rehearsal videos.
The involuntary manslaughter trial is set to begin on 8 September (11).

Sadly, this has nothing to do with caring about Michael. The more time they can put between Michael's death and the trial the more they're hoping people will forget like Anna Nicole Smith. I don't care how sick this film footage might show Michael to have been; that has NOTHING to do with the fact that Murray put an IV in him loaded with a dangerous drug and left to chat up his girlfriends and Michael to die alone!

Another waste of time and resources for California taxpayers. Murphy is the killer of MJ directly or indirectly. After all, he was the Doctor in charge of MJ's care. However, he was too busy taking care of his own business instead of Michael. Now his legal team is grasping at straws, like the movie footage, to try and find anything to distort the allegations against him. Pathetic.

one has to ask........what is the defense hoping to prove?? If they prove that he was indeed sick at the last weeks of rehearsal then what the HE!! was Murray doing giving him all those drug cocktails?? As his physician, said to be onsite at many rehearsals and caring for him in his home how could he NOT TELL IF in fact what they hope to prove is true?? They are screwed either way as IF they could prove that Michael did in fact administer the fatal dose then Murray would still be held liable for the lack of care, leaving Michael not only unattended on a drug you are NEVER to leave full view of the patient while administering, but to leave the medication in site and within reach.... no way..... my daughter has been put under with propofol many times and she NEVER snaps out if it rapidly enough to be alert enough to administer ANYTHING... she doses off and on for at least half an hour.
