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.

Hanging by a thread because he used all the other threads to fashion a rope for himself.

Conrad Murray doesn't care about life when he's applying his Propofol as a very highly paid professional doctor, in fact he kills people through blind raging greed. So to my mind if he is hanging on by a thread, cut the thread and assure that Dr. Conrad Murray is killed today. Where's the thread? LA area? I'll volunteer to buy and send some scissors. Any of those horrendously bad plastic surgeons also hanging by a thread? Catch my drift?

i totally agree with no 11. go flip burgers!! who gives a shit if he doesn't have enough money to pay for his defense. that's an excuse for a doctor who acted completely irresponsible to keep his license - because he needs money. well don't worry cuz you won't need money in jail where you belong murray.

When this is all said and done he will do less jail time than Paris did. His license will be vaporized and he will be bankrupt and he will disappear. His lawyer will write a book and get rich and the yellow press like TMZ will put miles of bullshit out on the web for people who have no involvement to comment on.

Everyone should just be glad tht they are not him.

suspend his medical license as a condition to bail

This sounds completely reasonable in a manslaughter charge where a patient died in the Dr's care. Until the trial is over why should he continue to put other patients at risk. If he is cleared he can put his duck shaped sign back up and work on.

Your arrogance and incompetence killed your patient. Your infamous for murdering Micheal Jackson. I seriously doubt anyone cares if YOU fell off the face of the earth, but they (family and fans) did care about HIM. I agree, go "flip burgers".
