Anna Nicole Doc: No Grassy Knoll Here

4/22/2010 4:12 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

One of the doctors charged in the Anna Nicole Smith drug case claims prosecutors have no evidence he conspired to pump Smith full of unwarranted prescriptions -- so he's asking the judge to throw out some of the charges.

Dr. Sandeep Kapoor's lawyer, Ellyn Garofalo, filed legal papers asking the judge to reject -- once and for all -- the prosecution's claim that Kapoor teamed with Howard K. Stern and Dr. Khristine Eroshevich to fuel Anna Nicole with scripts.

In the docs, Kapoor claims he prescribed drugs for Anna before he even met Eroshevich. Kapoor also claims he actually refused to fill a prescription wish list Eroshevich faxed him.

Kapoor also challenges the allegation he obtained Anna's prescriptions by "fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation," according to the filing.

In the court papers, Kapoor acknowledges filling a prescription for Anna under a pseudonym, but he claims he only did so to protect her privacy -- and not to "divert drugs for illegal sale or use."

Even if the judge grants the motion, Kapoor would still face 4 other counts.

These are not doctors these are criminals! professional doctors dont hang around and party with a patient and give her all the drugs she wants! Howard was controlling Anna and her son why did they both die?! Yea everyone here should be charged and do some time! Howard Stern is a con artist aka lawyer slimeball! If anna never had this man in her life she and Daniel would be alive today!

I am outraged at the continued abuse Dr. Kapoor continues to be subjected to, both by the media and by the Attorney General's office. The state's case against him seems flawed and suggests politcal agendas are the real motivation. In all these high profile cases no one places responsibility on the person taking medications. Unfortunately, this woman made poor choices and died.

In the Know    

Everybody ever wonder why "ONLY SWIM IN THE OCEAN" always has these incredibly elegant rambling point by point responses in every story about Sandy Kapoor, also known to her friends as "SUE ELLEN", after the Drunk Slutty Dallas TV Series character? They are concised well written and appear AFTER every TMZ story rebutting the accusations/nasty bits of information, snipey comments point by point and always declaring Sue Ellen will be found not guilty, that the court is going through the process, yaddah, yaddah,yaddah, etc. etc. etc.

Well the reason for this is that ONLY SWIM IN THE OCEAN gives all appearances of being written by Sue Ellen herself -maybe by one ofr little friends so they can't trace the IP address to him - but Sue Ellen is doubtless the mastermind of ONLY SWIM IN THE OCEAN.

Go back and watch the interview with Harvey and then compare the speech patterns of Sue Ellen and writings of ONLY SWIM IN THE OCEAN.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLO To Sue Ellen - any press is good press - HA HA HA HA HAHA HA

Frankly I think his @$$ is going to prison and he will lose his license - but what do I know???!!!

Sue Ellen get a tube of lube and get ready to be the bitch that you have always aspired to, IN PRISON!

Just saying.....

It's great that a drug/med. profile will be taken of the members of the jurors! It's time that we evaluate those who judge others and attempt to determine someone's guilt or innocence, especially when respectable and highly reverened persons futures are being questioned, such as the Doctors' integrities. Statistics have shown that some of the most addictive persons are "everyday housewives" if you want to know what their medicine cabinets show! So, before Stones are cast lets find out who is casting the wrong stones and in the wrong directions! Keep the faith, Doc's, you're in our prayers. God will prevail! Toodles! Keep smiling! Mahalo!
