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.

What the hell!? Who has the jurisdiction to suspend this guys license? WTF does a person have to do to get this guys license taken away? HE ADMINISTERED A SUBSTANCE OUTSIDE OF NORMAL PRACTICE AND PROTOCOL THAT CAUSED THE DEATH OF HIS PATIENT IN EXCHANGE FOR $150,000 PER MONTH! That's what normal people call UNETHICAL.

Can we PLEASE bring this issue to someone in the state of California with some type of Jurisdiction over such issues? Does ANY lawyer in California know who has jurisdiction over this issue?

No, they'll not take-away his license! He is the perfect "affirmative-action" poster child: An inferior medical practitioner...but a "Black" success-story, nonetheless! might hurt his feelings, and self-esteem, to lift his credential to practice! And...we wouldn't want that, would we? After all that his people have suffered, he cannot be held responsible for ANYTHING, that he might do! Excuses are made for these dopes...right, and left...and, it does nothing except dumb-down employment and educational standards...and weaken the entire nation, overall. He'll keeo his license, or his supporters will do what they do best: Engage in intimidation tactics...and, yell, "RACISM"!...just like always.

Hi medical lic. has to be suspended by the medical board in each state. Not these trial judges. Start putting complaints into each medical board about this Dr. so they investigate.

The judge has no jurisdiction to suspend Murray's medical license?
I suppose both the attorney and the judge already knew this. Then why proceed with this act? Both Pastor and Brown have been wasting time, energy and money.

That judge is a straight up liar? Really? HE doesn't have the jurisdiction to revoke the license? Then who does? If he does not have the jurisdiction, then why the hell is HE wasting everyones time, energy...not to mention patience and taxpayer money by holding court? What a farce the LA court system has become.
