Med. Board Shut Down in Anna Nicole Trial

12/11/2009 3:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith's doctors are free to practice medicine and continue to write prescriptions for controlled substances to patients, even though they're on trial for allegedly fueling Anna Nicole's drug addiction.

The Board wanted the judge in the ongoing trial to immediately suspend the licenses of Dr. Sandeep Kapoor and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich. The Board also wanted both docs to ante up all their prescription forms for controlled substances ... because it feared their patients were in immediate danger of harm.

Not the greatest argument, according to Ellyn Garofalo, Kapoor's lawyer, who says ... if the Board really felt that way it should have gone after Kapoor and co-defendant Eroshevich 2 1/2 years ago. The judge more than agreed.

Plus, the judge noted, neither doc has been convicted of anything.

Anna Nicole smithBy the way, the doctor duo and Howard K. Stern were re-arraigned today on 23 total charges ... they each pled not guilty.

Well it seems those involved in her life daily, except for Moe, care to participate in this show.

The most interesting part to me was that the initial 'cause of death' was the infection from the abscess. The 3rd man from Broward County (he was only shown the one time - maybe twice) specifically stated "Essentially ANS killed her self?" due to the fact she had injected herself with Vitamin B & growth hormone and injected a previous abscess which led to the infection entering her bloodstream. The reason it was ruled out... a call to experts said that it wouldn't cause death in a "healthy" 39 y/o. Strange as it was determined she was not healthy at the time mainly due to Daniel's death and in a weakened state.

They also stated the combination of drugs was NOT EVER a factor in her death because in therapeutic levels & the combination were OK (not sure of word used but they were not concerned) UNTIL the chloral hydrate results came in and yet another call to "experts" who stated when Chloral Hydrate was taken with others, it suppressed CNS more.

One thing I noticed, that I hadn't before in the 'clown' video is that ANS is looking into the eye of the video camera to finish her clown makeup, not only does that take concentration but would be more difficult without a mirror and she did it perfect...

Well the nannies had a THIRD testimony outside the prior 2 we have been subjected to and guess what??? It matches Moe's new testimony! IMAGINE THAT!

Hope everyone is well...

it's very clear that Wilma Vicedomine and Virgie Arthur's lawyers are behind Big Moe, Tasma, nannies. I read on VICEDOMINE's Facebook that she congratulated Tasma and Moe for their "courage" to tell the "truth".

THANK YOU    


So much for ignorant JB’s theory of excessive drugging in some sort of conspiracy. Contemporaneous and consistent stories are more reliable then ‘recaptured’ memories.

I honestly do not see how they could prove excessive drug in her body. They may have *numbers* of medications written for trying for a balance, but I am assuming that will be presented for what that is, at trial.
I do not even see reason for Dr. Perper to be called, as the trial is not about how many medicines where in her body at time of death. It is about how many scripts were written. That is how I am seeing this. It is not about her death, it is about over prescribing. I still think that S.K. does not have anything to worry about in regards to ANS. I do not know of his prescribing to other patients though. K.E. was trying to help and I do think that Anna needed a medical and a mental doctor working in concert being ANS had many medical issues. It is too bad that Anna could not have found both in the Bahamas. Anna seemed to be very stubborn and only would deal with people she trusted.
Still, I even think with the number of scripts written that there was no intent to harm. Nor should HKS be charged TWICE as much as the doctors. That is to LIES from former FBI guys and thier group who was out to destroy HKS for their own gain. In my opinion.

What is it exactly the DA will be asking the jury to decide on when the trial is over? I mean, do you have a educated guess being it has not happened yet?

Re.#227 SuckstobeRita,

Anybody who had watched Anna Nicole's interviews (before she met Stern in 1997), could notice that she was uneducated, shallow and silly. I remember Anna's interview with Lauren Hutton (YouTube) in 1995, Anna talked about Virgie and her bad behavior, poverty...Anna Nicole looked pretty, but her empty eyes and soul made me uncomfortable. She wasn't on drugs, she was simply inarticulate like a little girl. Anna Nicole's Reality Show was a sad story of a totally lost woman. Anna's vulgar, abusive behavior towards her friends (Kim, Howard) was revolting. People cannot blame RX. drugs for lack of proper upbringing and good manners. With or without drugs she was annoying.
People should watch "ILLEGAL ALIENS" and "CLOWN VIDEO" and then make a conclusion about Anna's behavior....She was a simple minded person and drugs had nothing to do with that. It's very hard to explain such a silly behavior to a normal, average person. I mean, how can anybody explain that middle aged woman drank chocolate milk from baby bottle ( Birkhead's testimony)! Edited or unedited Clown video exposed the magnitude of her silliness. It's totally absurd to blame a videographer who exposed such behavior. People cannot believe that such beautiful woman could be so derenged, and they put the blame on RX. drugs in order to explain it.

is it finish??    

the pills on all names where in Moe's room.They where no pills in Anna's room.
Taz new Moe ad a visitor the night before,she wasn't in shape...
She saw in Moe's room, all the prescriptions...Howard was asking Moe to stay and Moe ad something to do so...Taz was the one left to take care of Anna.
On Broward Conty, medical examiner's office, autopsy no 07-0223 made on Anna nicole,Dr.Peper write,
in emergency room, there was no rigor and lividity was at minimum and unfixed
the cloth are dry and clean.
In autopsy
Pads Endotracheal no8,Electrocardiogram,2 defibrillators,Intravennous line.All where connect to her body.....
The larynx and trachea are line by smooth pink tan mucosa,are patent and contain no forein matter.
The esophagus is empty and mucosa is unremarkable.
So in my mind Taz was there when Anna pass.
The story with vomit all over do not take road.
The theory saying Anna was dead when Howard left...
So why did Taz took so much time????
Did she ad something to hide? Or Moe????
Cause if Anna was dead, why the paramedic did all they did...
Moe look like a regular client at HRC
look at the link It was 24 of march 2007...
Ohhh he was also suppose to work for Anna for free....
Was he paid himself in an other way????

is it finish??    

2543. QUESTION: Doctor, based on the body temperature at the hospital, could she have been dead for hours before?

PERPER: No. And the reason is that according to our information at the time when the medics came to the scene, the body was warm and there were no indication that a long time occurred since the body was found.

239. 12:00 to 1;45 before paramedic arrived.
What Taz did during that time???

Good question!

Dr. Perper’s PowerPoint presentation mentions 12:00 pm, and Dr. Gertrude Juste (Associate ME) mentions 12:30 pm in her Crime Scene Investigation report regarding the time Tasma notices ANS is not breathing. Both agree that Big Moe called the Seminole 911 at 1:40 and a patrol unit arrived in 3 minutes, paramedics another 3 minutes later. The room was flooded with Seminole Detectives and Broward County Officers, crime scene photographer and ME personnel. The room was secured, photographed, inventoried and HKS held for questioning as the paramedics worked on ANS and shortly transported her to the ER of Memorial Regional Hospital. Recall former Detective Mark Fuhrman on Greta opining the scene was mishandled (hardly true).

Dr. Perper wrote that ANS was warm, resuscitation drugs were able to be circulated and the external pacemaker had managed electrical capture. That is, she was alive or just shortly deceased when the paramedics finally arrived.

Recall the times though. Big Moe said his cell phone was registered in an area code that would have confused 911 if he had called before arriving at the Hard Rock (as if you cannot speak to the human who answers and set them straight). Tasma was ‘just a friend’ who happened to also be a FL licensed RN. Much talk was made of ‘what Anna wanted’ with regard to calling 911 (never challenged when others besides HKS were using that expression). The time line and these explanations were overlooked as the TX cabal took to the airways to scream HKS murdered ANS and multitudes of other peripheral uninformed people began the drumbeat of Broward County and Seminole Tribe incompetence.

The largest media involvement in any story in American history focused on HKS. After Dr. Perper’s extraordinarily comprehensive report was reported (and immediately placed online for all) and all of its attachments from outside experts and the original crime scene investigation and Police reports were also available the focus shifted to the custody of DL in The Bahamas. The media in general essentially closed down the story when LB flew out of The Bahamas with DL (and shortly after Wood came on-board to warn those not in the mainstream media to behave).

The TX cabal immediately began to pressure FL authorities to charge HKS with a crime that never happened. O’Q was sued only for his early defamation after ANS’s accidental death. Judge Chin nicely laid out the credibility arguments against all else we saw crawl out of the woodwork with their hands out and their motives nefarious.

THANK YOU    

OSITO -- read this somewhere. Could you also explain this please. Love the summaries, you are very much appreciated!

snip *Harris County website and there is this interesting developement on the Harris County website. Under Judgment Events it shows:
2/26/2010 ORDER FOR INTERLOCUTORY SUMMARY JUDGMENT SIGNED 1 page.*

Is interlocutory the last step before summary? Does this mean it is really over? Before the others get a ruling from the COA? Does this mean only CBS and not the other defendants. Thank you.

Thanks DTHD TX,

This is an order issued provisionally during a lawsuit; CBS has won! Interlocutory orders allow the Judge to let the parties know what has been decided before he takes the time to write the usual in-depth order.

No CBS means no AH. Writs mean no HKS, TS or AH. No ‘special appearances’ for HKS or LB have been held anyway. There are no real defendants in this phony lawsuit now.

Hey, check out this site for the article today on the Marshall Estate.
Ruling any day now -- possible precedent set for all Americans.
Interesting.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/feb/26/stripper-searches-for-loot-loophole/

Can the two bloggers who got unjustly incarcerated get reimbursement from Harris County? Or do they have to file suit for any compensation.
Thank you so much! A good day for justice!

What about L. Harrington and RT? Being they do not have a Writ or a Special Appearance? Yep! A good day! :D
