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.

THOSE LOUSY B******S!



I WOULD NOT PUT IT PAST THEM.



MURRAY AND HIS LAWYERS.



THEY NEED MORE TIME....FOR WHAT, SO THEY CAN COME UP WITH SOME MORE B******T LIES? LIKE THE ONE....OH, Y'ALL REMEMBER THE ONE...."MJ INJECTED HIMSELF WITH THE FATAL DOSE OF PROPOFOL WHILE MURRAY WAS OUT THE ROOM."



THEY'VE BEEN COMING UP WITH THOSE S****Y A** EXCUSES SINCE FEBRUARY 8TH, WHEN MURRAY'S DEFENSE TEAM SAID THAT THE DA'S OFFICE "STILL HADN'T SENT THEM ANY EVIDENCE....AFTER 8 MONTHS."



I GUESS WHEN YOU'RE GOOD AT COMING UP WITH B******T LIES, TIME AND TIME AGAIN, YOU NEED ALL THE TIME IN THE WORLD!

I'll say it again: nobody uses Diprivan on a person outside of a hospital. Basically, only ConMan Murray. This guy dropped all his other patients to go cash in BIG, getting $150,000 a month to "take care of" one patient--and that one patient died...not long after ConMan took over. Think about it--why would an in-shape pro-dancing 50 year old man need a full-time doctor with him round the clock? Answer: because he wanted to get Diprivan to sleep with. And he knew it was more or less illegal and dangerous, so he'd have to pay a doctor a LOT to take the risk. And that doctor is a guy who wasn't paying his child support but who managed to buy a car for his stripper girlfriend. Nice picture, huh?

Come on??? almost 1 year since his death and he is still not in jail? sorta a charge, but the slowest working court i have ever heard of. and now postponing due to not all the paperwork given.. Nothing is together in this case IF it is REAL?? If Michael is Infact passed away why would this take so long? why so careless in everything the investigators did? why so sloppy in the tranports of his body to the hospital... something doesn't add up everyone?
