Michael Jackson’s Doctor gets to Keep his License

On June 14th in Los Angeles, the requested ban by the California medical board on Dr. Conrad Murray for practicing medicine in the state of California was refused.  Dr. Murray was charged with involuntary manslaughter in the possible  wrongful death of Michael Jackson.  He has already pleaded not guilty to the charges all a while the Jackson family are hoping that he is “harshly punished”.

The courtroom was full of life from the Jackson family including Michaels mother, father and siblings including brother Jermaine and Randy and sister LaToya Jackson.  Some of his family members had remarks such as Jermaine saying, “Dr. Murray’s the fall guy.”  “This is bulls**t.”  A lawyer for Joe Jackson has said he was preparing a civil wrongful-death lawsuit in the singer’s death.

Preliminary hearings for Doctor Murray are set for August 23.  The defense team of Murray argued from the stand point that the state was “forum shopping” by asking for a reversal in the decisions made by the first judge.  Judge Pastor second this opinion and replied, A lawyer for Joe Jackson has said he was preparing a civil wrongful-death lawsuit in the singer’s death.

Next week there will be an official memorial on the first anniversary of Michael Jacksons death.  Dr. Conrad Murray is reportedly not attending in order to avoid causing any heartache for the Jackson family.
