Dr. Murray Keeps His Medical License

6/14/2010 4:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray can keep practicing medicine in California while he awaits trial for the death of Michael Jackson ... so says the trial judge.

California Attorney General Jerry Brown -- who is running for Governor -- was shut down for a second time in his attempt to suspend Murray's license.  Judge Michael Pastor ruled he did not have jurisdiction over the doc's medical license.

Interesting side note ... Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, brought up a story TMZ broke -- that Murray came to the rescue of a sick passenger on a plane last month.

Judge Pastor also set Murray's preliminary hearing date for August 23.

I'm basically going to stop following this trial, because the legal system is just playing around. When the sentence comes down, and I hope it's a fair one, then I'll be interested.

murray has reason for confidence; got complimented by the judge for the airplane incident and that revoking his license would prevent him from helping people.And, by the way the judge has no authority to do so,that is to revoke.California A.G. and the
Medical Board of California has asked that his license be revoked.
Will the same judge preside over the hearing on Aug.23rd?
It is a joke that the restriction concerns propofol ,he was not qualified to give it anyway and when he did it was administered in a reckless, grossly negligent manner.Murray is no dr Jerkyll and mr Hyde.He just sold his soul-ethics for money.Any body with an MD ,RN or familiar with propofol anestesia knows that he engaged in major malpractice.Please read up on it in the PDR.
Also read article by Charles Thomson re trial of Michael Jackson,
="One of the most shameful episodes in journalistic history",a
21st century lynching. You can find it on AolNews-Huffington post.
Compared to that, murray is treated like some kind of royalty.
Most people, I think,knows all the wrongs with murrays administering of propofol, but there are more not yet mentioned.
The comparison to mr Jerkyll; because I don´t think he has a perversion of unresistabe urge to inject propofol to people.
That seems to be the way the court thinks though.If he walks as many think he will, it will give CARTE BLANCHE to other dr´s to act
in a similar way.

What their saying is... if Dr. Murray was seen holding a knife, that was dripping with blood over MJ...or was holding a gun, still smoldering from being fired, over MJ...that would be SUFFICENT evidence. But paying a doctor for drugs...and that doctor administered a fatal drug combination that caused death...isn't enough evidence to remove his license! =(
I'm ashamed to say...only in America!

CONGRATULATION'S Judge Michael Pastor, You've just shown the entire world...how to commit a perfect murder without penalties or ramification's.
1. Find a doctor who is desperate for money.
2. Make sure the doctor is willing to give prescription drug's along with drug's obtained for hospital use only.
3. Make sure the doctor will leave the victim's room, after administering a fatal drug combination.
4. Make sure the doctor will call his office immediately after finding the dead victim, and request his receptionist drive to a ware house to remove boxes of evidence
5. Make sure the doctor, will perform CPR on the victim...while the victim is on a soft surface.
6. Make sure the doctor will remove any and all evidence, while still on the premises.
7. Make sure the doctor disappears, after medical personal have been called.
8. But most importantly...make sure the doctor you would like to hire, hold's more than 1-medical licence in different states so it cannot be revoked.

This will all pass, and the nightmare of having been associated with Michael Jackson and his "clan" will fade with time.
God Bless and keep you and your family and friends.

FANS PLEASE REMEMBER:
There is a difference when a Judge rules that he has no jurisdiction and when he reviews the merits of a case and rules that he can keep his license. THIS WAS NOT THE CASE! The judge never considered the merits of the case and cited a LACK OF JURISDICTION in the matter. And he is right! THE CALIFORNIA MEDICAL BOARD has the Powers to REVOKE or TEMPORARILY SUSPEND the license. You can FILE YOUR OWN COMPLAINT to the CALIFORNIA MEDICAL BOARD.... It's on-line there....under FORMS. CALLING ON MILLIONS OF MICHAEL JACKSON FANS....BOMBARD THE MEDICAL BOARD WITH COMPLAINTS.......LET THE FUN BEGIN!

I'm actually shocked that Jerry Brown wasted the court's time and money on this hearing. He knows better. This judge has no authority or jurisdiction over Murray's medical license. It was a totally useless and wasteful exercise.

Jerry Brown used this hearing as a stepping stone and PR move in his campaign for governor. He knew this judge would not hear this case because he has no jurisdiction regarding a medical license. Shame on Jerry. I think he's been a great crusader regarding going after these concierge doctors, but he blew it big time on this one....he used this situation and hearing, well knowing it was a waste for his own personal game.

Folks,
Conrad Murray was my heart doctor in Las Vegas, NV. and I have nothing but the utmost respect for him. He put 8, eight, 8 count 'em stints in my heart and was the most professional person I have ever dealt with. He was someone who cared about his patients and explained everything he was going to do. This is a simple transference of blame for those who treated Michael prior to Dr. Murray. He was trying to wean Jackson off the drugs he had become addicted to.
