Dr. Murray

Lawyers Up

for Wrongful Death Suit

4/13/2010 10:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Conrad MurrayDr. Conrad Murray is already planning his legal strategy in a Michael Jackson wrongful death case ... TMZ has learned.

Dr. Murray, we're told, has already hired a civil lawyer, Charles Peckham, who handles medical board cases and wrongful death lawsuits.

We've learned Peckham has already been in touch with Dr. Murray's malpractice insurance carrier, and it turns out to be a tricky situation.

Sources connected with Dr. Murray's defense tell TMZ Dr. Murray had a malpractice policy issued in Texas that covered his medical practices in Texas and Nevada.

Here's the rub.  Dr. Murray did not have a medical practice in California, which is a prerequisite for his malpractice coverage.  So Dr. Murray's position is that he first saw  Michael Jackson as a Nevada patient and what he did for him in L.A. was merely an extension of the Nevada treatment.

We've learned the malpractice policy would only cover civil litigation, not criminal.  In the event the doctor is sued for wrongful death -- and Joe Jackson promises that will happen soon -- Murray expects the policy would cover attorney's fees and any judgment. 

One source told TMZ, "We fully expect the insurance company would cover such costs."

Can someone explain to me why Oxman is suspended. I don't know much about him,but he just doesn't seem very credible to me.

Thanks for the Murray-info, gimme a break. I wasn't sure about that. And I didn't want to offend you yesterday. Convincing somebody is what a good discussion is all about, and I like to hear both sides of a story, even if think different.

Hi Lee lee, sounds you have what we on this side of the earth call typical "April weather" and experience in spring. We're longing so much for summer here! And no, I don't think Butterfly has already left, it's not such a long trip from where she lives to Berlin, she'll probably just be there over the weekend. I'm very curious what she'll have to tell!
I wish all of you a great day, just could have a short lurk on the board. See ya later!
