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.

It's really disrespectful talking like that....
Michael is not a child molester, he's never been..
Just a poor thing can say that a doctor, a man supposed to SAVE lives, does a favour to the world killing a human being.... no matter who this human being is!!
Michael always talked about spreading love and healing the world....
There's no room in our hearts for hate!!!
So I forgive you for your words, so sadly full of hate.... and i hope your son will be an open heart guy, despite you...

He must have some wealthy people behind him..how could his liscense not be temporaily suspended..that should be the minimum,, he used a dangerous drug the wrong way..I don't get how someone who is a doctor and can't even do CPR properly can continue on.

Idiot!    

I am NOT a Dr. Murray fan, and I think he should ultimately lose his license over his actions (and face criminal charges as well). However, I now remember why I hate Jerry Brown with a passion; his political grandstanding, attention whoring & totally entitled attitude. When he was governor (and a really bad governor, by the way), he constantly inserted himself into situations that he had no cause to be involved in, just so people would see his name & think "he was doing something".



Jerry, you should be focusing in on things like coming up with plans on how to pull California out of it's bankruptcy situation (thanks to "The Governator"), instead of posturing regarding Dr. Murray. You have no standing to be inserting yourself in this situation; let the process work itself out like it does with others. Start acting like a Governor instead of lindsay blowhan...

It's disappointing but not surprising. I agree with OhWell that Murray will likely do no jailtime for killing Michael. His negligence will kill someone else before all is said and done.

Michael Jackson said in several occasion that he was writing his life and he was writing history.
Michael written my life in many songs, speaking with him and from his own vision, I'm Annie, and Invincible, Dangerous, Michael want that I, Remember the Time
I talk with Michael in: Whatever Happens, in This is it… I was poisoned for Michael Jackson's murders. I’m Witness and victim.
I'm Moonwalker, a proof, and Michael’s murders want this copyright too. Everybody must know the truth, after 30 years Moonwalk is my proof; I want help M. J. with this copyright. J.B., J.M., Murray: came behind Michael and me, to my city, on 6/27/2008
M. Jackson: Softly You Say To Me * I Will Be There (I Will Be There)…
God will not let the truth in the dark

52. 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.

Exactly! Why would a 'hearing' even have taken place. This makes NO SENSE at all. Why would the judge even take or hear the case then if he didn't have jurisdication over it. There has to be papers filed before hand, what...did the judge, courthouse, just FORGET to tell the attorney's (defendant) that he didn't have jurisdiction or authority to do anything. OK, this makes sense! NOT! BS! something is very wrong here, with this entire scenario. something is very wrong!

Notice they took down the lame exclamation: Dr Murray´s licence is SAFE!!"



It almost sounded like UnWell or this Trish-Trash thing. Just sayin´.

Yes, the plane-accident, now we know what it was staged for...
Guess if Murray ever should lose his license (what obviously won't happen) he'll have a good chance to get cast for "Grey's Anatomy" or "Dr House" after that show. Seeing him practice there will be safer for the world.
