Dr. Conrad Murray: 'I'm Hanging On by a Thread'

4/1/2010 3:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray: 'I'm Hanging On by a Thread'Dr. Conrad Murray's lawyer filed legal papers today pleading with the judge in his criminal case not to yank his medical license, because he needs it to pay for his defense.

Murray's lawyers are responding to the State Attorney General's motion, asking the judge to suspend his medical license as a condition to bail.

Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, says his client was in financial hot water before Michael Jackson's death and is now, "without fear of overstatement, hanging on by a thread."

Murray believes if the judge suspends his license, Texas and Nevada will follow suit and the doctor won't be able to make the money required to mount a defense. We're now told Chernoff will be earning some sort of fee, and Murray is also responsible for expert witness fees and other trial-related expenses.

well he should of thought about this before he gave MJ all the medication that his body could not handle.
the world saw what happened when MJ trusted his life to this guy.
Pull his lisence. He should never be able to practice medicine again.
let him get a job working with lab rats, then if one dies he can atleast say the rat was a test subject.

this guy should never hold another humanes life in his hands.

Awh too bad Murray-guess you didn't take losing your license into consideration when you gave MJ the drugs....Cannot believe he thinks him working will cover paying for his defense-he cant even pay his child support for his 8 kids! Save the BS Murray!

He will lose his license, get sued for wrongful death-he better find a new occupation....Justice for MJ!

The judge won't take his license away. They are too wimpy. Gerry Brown is just doing it for publicity.

Im having a hard time finding sympathy for this guy.

Michael Jackson spent his whole life trying to help other people and make other people happy. The one time Michael really NEEDED some one to help him, this "doctor" chooses to help himself instead.

Talk about being self absorbed? You killed Michael!!! That brings me so much pain to say that. YOU KILLED HIM AND STILL YOU ARE ONLY CONCERNED ABOUT YOUR OWN A*S*S???

Yank his medical license. He didn't care about Michael Jackson. All he cared about was getting money and covering up for his actions.

LOCK HIM UP AND THROW AWAY THE KEY!!!

Oh yeah and one more thing,this is a shot out to Dr. Murray:

The Word Is Out
You're Doin' Wrong
Gonna Lock You Up
Before Too Long,
Your Lyin' Eyes
Gonna Take You Right
So Listen Up
Don't Make A Fight,
Your Talk Is Cheap
You're Not A Man
You're Throwin' Stones
To Hide Your Hands

JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL!!

Lock him up already.

I LOVE YOU MORE MICHAEL,
Kimberly
