Dr. Murray May Ask to Delay Preliminary Hearing

5/10/2010 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray's legal team claims it may not be ready for the preliminary hearing setting next month, because they still have not received the full criminal file on the Michael Jackson manslaughter case.

Miranda Sevcik, spokesperson for Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, tells TMZ they have only received 3,500 pages of discovery.  Sevcik cites a news report in which the D.A.'s office claims it has "hundreds of thousands of pages of material." 

But a D.A. spokesperson told TMZ on Friday that the statement that there were "hundreds of thousands" of pages was their error ... and in fact there are only  "thousands of pages" and the defense has received "the bulk of it."

Sevcik's response ... "It's odd. It seems like an awfully big miscalculation."  

Sevcik says if the defense team does not get all the docs soon, they may ask to delay the preliminary hearing setting -- set for June 14.

Comments like Michael is God or the sexiest man in the Universe make me want to "Barf". He was a shriveled up, plastic surgery nightmare. They need to add a picture of MJ, under the word nightmare.

I think he pretty much waved his rights to be ridiculed when he admitted to giving all those drugs to MJ the morning of his death.



I don't think he killed MJ on purpose but there is no doubt that he did indeed kill him threw negligence.

68. Hello America.... any person charged with a crime is afforded the presumption of "INNOCENT" until proven guilty. It doesn't matter who the person is or what they are being charge for or what your personal FEELINGS are or FEARS are. Dr. Murry is at this point in time presumed innocent- anything else is a violation of his RIGHTS AS AN AMERICAN This could be you on trial - how would you feel - -would you want your good name slandered in the media and by your brothers and sisters in this country -I think not. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Love and Peace are the only way - protect eachothers rights!!!

My mother may she rest in peace had to sleep with her pocketbook under her pillow because of her children's addictions. Since I was the alcoholic I didn't need to rob anyone either. I could just go to the local liquor store and make my purchase. I had a great career, got up every morning, did all the things a mother should do. But I also had the plans made up in my head about when I would be able to get that next drink.




Michael Jackson was never 100% there for his children, he was high or going to all his doctors so he could get the drugs he needed to get high. What you said and I what I said are exactly the same, only difference is, is the way that we said it !!!!

What I said was that I didn't 'abuse' my children. I didn't say that I didn't 'damage' them due to my addiction; just as I PROMISE YOU THAT YOU ALSO 'DAMAGED' YOURS DUE TO YOUR ALCOHOLISM; that is if you consider being emotionally unavailable to them 'damage'. THAT is why I made amends to my son. We both went to counseling & I may NEVER know the full extent of the 'damage' that was done.



I'm rather confused though. You seem to imply that there is a 'difference' in an addict & an alcoholic. Both are substance abusers. Why do you imply that MJ had the drugs & IV's actually 'around his children'. The fact that he was receiving his drugs & infusions in a guest bedroom seem to imply to 'me' that he was going the extra mile to make sure his children WERE NOT exposed to his drug use. You may check these facts. He DID NOT receive treatment from Murray in HIS bedroom at night. The night he died, he died in the guest bedroom & the IV supplies were found in that bedroom.



Barbie, no matter WHAT you may tell yourself, there is absolutely NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL between an addict & an alcoholic. An alcoholic may find themselves homeless, on the street, & in an alley somewhere begging for money from passersby to 'support their habit' just like an addict. In fact, look around. You see it everyday out there on the street in the world. The only difference is the 'length of time one uses which will directly impact how far down the scale one decends into their addiction/alcoholism'. YOU may not have abused your children but because of your alcoholism YOU were also not fully emotionally available to your children just as I was not because of my addiction. That is called neglect & there is no way around avoiding the truth of that sad fact.



You talk about this huge 'grand canyon' difference between addicts & alcoholics. No there is NOT. It doesn't matter how 'functional' you think you were, you had as many amends to make to YOUR children, as I did my son if you were an alcoholic when they were around you.



Also I'm curious as where you read or heard that MJ 'HAD DRUGS ALL OVER THE HOUSE' & 'THAT HIS CHILDREN WERE EXPOSED TO THIS'. I have not seen anything at all that confirms this. Are you simply 'assuming' that was the case?



Addiction & Alcoholism is the same thing. I'm not sure how you got 'sober' or what meeting you went to but if you went to AA you should have already been aware of this.

Your welcome & likewise as to why I keep coming back here & I'll be here to 'the end' as well:)



As to those saying 'innocent until proven guilty'? Of course he is. However, I think that those who are so INTENT on seeing Murray get what's coming to him have already looked at the evidence(I include myself in this category as well) & have decided in our own minds at least, that Dr.Quacki-poo deserves to be convicted of involuntary manslaughter at least. I realize some believe he deserves more than this but I'm of the opinion that, although I'd like to see him definitely do MORE than just 4 or so yrs in prison, I believe that BECAUSE MJ DID HAVE SOME COMPLICITY in his own death, the evidence just simply doesn't support a charge greater than involuntary manslaughter.



Yes, he is 'innocent until proven guilty' but based on what I(and what I believe those of us who believe him to be guilty on this board) have seen so far(injecting an anesthetic in a home environment in the absence of proper monitoring precautions, Murrays inconsistent statements given to police, the unexplained lag time in calling 911, CPR given on a bed, the reckless injection of several barbiturates with subsequent infusion of an anesthetic agent, Murrays attempt to 'negotiate' for a higher monthly payment from MJ in exchange for his agreement to violate the standard of care for the administration of Diprivan, etc.), we believe the evidence has definitely piled up in the 'guilty' column.



There just isn't & NEVER IS AN EXCUSE for a physician to inject his 'patient' with an anesthetic for insomnia in the manner that he did it. THAT alone is already an established fact in THIS CASE.



IS THERE ANYONE ON THIS BOARD WHO CAN DENY MURRAY DID THIS? MURRAY DOESN'T EVEN DENY IT.



HOW DOES A PHYSICIAN EXPLAIN THIS AWAY? ANY OTHER PHYSICIAN WOULD SAY TO HIM: DR.MURRAY, YOU JUST DON'T DO IT.



He violated the accepted 'standard of care' which caused the death of his patient. All one needs to do is examine the definition of 'involuntary manslaughter'.

I read stuff like this and I get sick to my stomach. People who believe Michael was a pedophile, or a drug addict, or a megalomaniac are called haters, and yet some of you fans are calling for the murder of Dr. Murray in the name of L.O.V.E.? Makes me wonder just who the haters really are. I didn't know Michael but I would bet my life he would not want his fans talking this way about anyone, including Dr. Murray. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Let's try to stay on topic here. Defense always wants to delay prosecution of cases, hoping memories of witnesses will fade, interest will fade, evidence will get misplaced, potential jurors will lose interest, etc.; however in this case conviction of Dr. Murray even if on invol manslaughter will go a long way in stopping doctor feelgoods from enabling people with problems such as MJ's, FOR MONEY. Bottom line, that's exactly what Murray did. Hopefully MJ's legions of fans will not forget, despite delays, so that some form of justice will prevail, although nothing will bring Michael back to us.

IS IT NOT PLAIN TO EVERYONE, THAT THERE WILL BE CONTINUAL JUSTIFICATIONS FOR DELAYING THIS CASE FOR THE ALLEGED CRIME OF KILLING MICHAEL.



THE CASE WILL NEVER BE SEEN TO A SATISFACTORY RESULT.



IT'S AS PLAIN AS THE SUN RISING IN THE EAST AND SETTING IN THE WEST.



IF THERE IS NO CRIME, THERE CANNOT BE A CONVICTION. THIS IS JUST A MEDIA CIRCUS.



STAY SAFE MICHAEL, YOU HAVE OBVIOUSLY PAID C. MURRAY WELL TO TAKE THE SHOTS FOR COVERING UP YOUR ESCAPE.



I LOVE YOU

Ny name is Deb. I am a fan of Michael's. I am a friend to many fans who do not have their head up their a$$e$ but who are realistic about Michael and his faults, and do not worship him like he is god.



- I don't have my head up my A**, I am realistic.. go back and read my posts. I do not worship him like a god of any sort, Love the person he was, memories he left behind. He was a Human and many people think it's okay to dehumanize him.




I believe we can have differing opinions and still get along, however, I draw the line at deification or sainthood. And when I said Michael was not the sexiest man alive yesterday and Mimi got mad it was because she did not read my post - how can he be the sexiest man alive when he is DEAD? Doesn't that make sense??



-We can get along with different opinions without insulting eachother. Sainthood? where have I said that? Never! I'm sorry MiMi got mad at you but I don't and can't speak for MiMi's feelings, as for sexiest man alive never said that, I said he was sexy, (gee, look beyond what dr. did to his face). Did you not just say that we can have different opinions? Well let everyone have their opinions, if they want to worship him, fine and think he is Alive, so what, how does it affect you and your daily life? You said ALF worships the ground you walk on but that's okay eh because it's Deb, stop being a hypocrite and don't contradict yourself.



Call me what you want - hater, fan, fan-hater. And yes, I am engaged to OhWell and he is not the immature, middle American Red neck piece of trash you called him. I told him I would not defend him anymore so as not to ruin his fun. I don't completely understand it myself, and I roll my eyes quite often when I see his posts, but he gets a big kick out of needling you fans and/or fanatics and you are playing right into his hands when you call him Alf or say bad things to him. The more you do it the better he likes it. I don't know why and I don't care; that's his thing. All I know is in real life he is a good, honorable man who worships the ground I walk on and is always there for me. Most women would kill to have a man like that, regardless of how he feels about Michael and his fans. No one is 100% perfect. And hey, we can't have everything!



-I don't call Oh Well red-neck, I call him ALF, I'm not kimmie or any other cloner, I have been here for a year and already know how eachand everyone comments, well familiar names, like yours. That's why I made the comment about you being a fan and all of a sudden your attitude changed for the worse. I respect others opinions, don't respect people who are plain vulgar. Good for you that he loves you sounds a bit ( fake ) outrages, but oh well, to each his own. Ruin his fun? Does he not have family he can make fun of and insult, why not you?



I am sure ALF can handle himself, but I can accept that you have different views, so as long as your not insulting and not a wacked out cloner, that's fine and dandy, but looking outside of MJ comments and I never change my name but once after the whole cloning mess I have seen similarities in other posts as yours and ALF's(Oh Well) IMO.



G'day
