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.

Poor, Poor Pitiful me. Should have thought about that before you began practicing your lethal brand of medicine. No simpathy here. The doc should have had his license suspended the minute Michael Jackson died. Just give him a dose of his own medicine.

And we should feel sorry for Dr. Murray because....? None of this would be happening to him if he would have been a RESPONSIBLE doctor. It scares me there are doctors like him out there practising medicine. He didn't do ONE thing correctly while giving MJ Propofol...I'm a nurse anesthetist, so I should KNOW. And if Murray REALLY said he does NOT need to apologize to MJ's family because he didn't do anything that should/could have killed MJ, then that alone shows that he does NOT have a CLUE about Propofol and how it works and what it can do! And if he goes around giving people drugs he has NO knowledge of (and obviously is LAZY enough to EDUCATE himself about them as well!!), then that is just absolutely frightening and in my opinion his license should be suspended IMMEDIATELY, before he harms/kills another person!!

actually this is interesting because we have all wondered who was paying the lawyers.
this could be a reason for supposedly having to plea bargain...
the lawyers already got their free publicity

other people have speculated that the lawyers will work pro bono and assumed malpractice ins will cover the rest.
if insurance wont pay , what valid reason do they have for that .that he was not really acting in the capacity of a doctor when he gave mj the stuff.that would work for the prosecution


i just dont trust lawyers in general.

Murray cannot prescribe or administer Propofol or other heavy-duty anesthetics already. His license is adequately limited to safeguard the public while the court sorts out whether he is guilty of manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson.

If he had a million in the bank then curtailment of his license would not be justified and would also wrongly prejudice the jury pool against him.
