Murray's Lawyer Fighting Licence Suspension

A lawyer for DR. CONRAD MURRAY has urged lawmakers not to suspend the medic's license - because his client is struggling to survive financially following the scandal over MICHAEL JACKSON's death.
Murray has pleaded not guilty to one count of involuntary manslaughter amid accusations he administered the powerful anaesthetic Propofol to Jackson, which led to the singer's death last June (09). He has since been barred from giving patients such drugs.
California Attorney General Jerry Brown filed court papers last week (ends26Mar10) seeking to kick Murray out of medicine altogether, as part of the terms of his bail, branding the doctor's conduct "reprehensible".
But Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, is fighting the proposed ban, insisting his client is already "hanging on by a thread".
Chernoff argues authorities in Nevada and Texas, where Murray also has offices, could follow suit if Brown succeeds in getting his medical license taken away.

The universe will give the doctor what he deserves.... How about since he operates in different states limit his pratice somehow? I don't know MJ fans...I mean we desire justice of course however it will not be served ever to our satisfaction because we do not have our beloved king w/us. hey...can the fans sue the doctor for loss of joy? and or creating anguish, sadness and depression? Now THAT could set a precedent....Sorry MJ.... we miss u very much...r.i.p. At the end u were so tired.....

well said mwanamaker182427 straight from the heart, I agree with your every word. How frustrating is it for us, how will we ever come to terms with the loss of MJ. His family must be distraught every day of their lives and to think that this doctor is still paracticing......

The only people struggling with Michael's death are his beautiful children, and maybe his mother, but no one else gave a hoot about Michael, his brothers, and sister and father, don't make me laugh. they could care less.

It is important that we send the correct message to all professionals who feel they are higher than authority! By allowing him to continue practicing carelessly treating his patients illigally makes me question the judicial system completely!!!!! How do we know that Dr. Murray has not already killed others?! Medical practices may differ state to state, but why give him the opportunity to hurt another family? If his patient was not FAMOUS he may have never gotten caught or repremended at all. REMEMBER Dr. Kevorkian? read this:For most of the 1990s Kevorkian -- now widely known as "Dr. Death" -- was on TV talk shows, in the news and in and out of court (and jail) for his role in a number of deaths. In September of 1998 he videotaped the death of Thomas Youk; the tape was broadcast by CBS television's 60 Minutes in November, and Kevorkian ended up on trial again, charged with murder and the delivery of a controlled substance. (Having lost his licenses to practice medicine in California and Michigan, Kevorkian's use of potassium chloride was illegal.) He was convicted in April of 1999 and sentenced to 10-25 years in prison. Denied parole in 2005, Kevorkian, in failing health, was granted parole at the end of 2006 and released in 2007. Supporters argue that -- idiosyncrasies aside -- Kevorkian is a hero who helped more than 130 terminally ill people end their own lives with dignity. Critics say he is a weirdo who exploited sick and disabled people for his own morbid experimentsHe LOST HIS PRIVALIGES to PRACTIVE MEDICINE IN CALIFORNIA!!!!! -- That says it all.

Dr. Murray is struggling to make ends meet?...Oh puhleese the Jackson family is struggling much more than Murray can ever imagine. Struggling with the lost of their son, brother,father and uncle. The Jacksons are struggling with the fact that Michael was murdered. The Jacksons are struggling with the fact that people are stealing his money and the things he worked so hard for. The Jacksons are struggling with the fact that his children no longer have a father due to Murrays incompetence. The Jacksons are struggling with the fact that people are still slandering his name.The Jacksons are struggling with the fact that people have lied on Michael. The Jackson are struggling with the fact that Michael is no longer here to enjoy his senior years. Where the heck did Dr. Murray get $75,000 for bail,JUST LIKE THAT?!!!THAT DOES NOT SOUND LIKE STRUGGLING TO ME. I cannot comprehend why someone would want him as their Dr. either these patients have a death wish or they want to be connected to the drama.
