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 happened in the court room today? See this is how it will be if they don't televise the Murray trial. Livestreams go away suddenly, and then you don't know what happened. Who said what? What was the hearing about? Is there going to be a trail or is there just going to be a one day hearing month after month for the next year? Will this ever end and give the family and fans closure?

My understanding of the medical license is that it takes a long time for the medical board to take it. They have to go through a trial type thing to take away a doctors license and it could take as much as a year. The medical board was hoping the judge would take it because he could do it faster than they could. I guess the judge and medical board will just have to live with it if anyone else dies while under the care of this doctor.

The man euthanized a pedophile.



Isn't that a good outcome?

I'm definitely voting for Jerry Brown. It's okay if Murray gets to keep his license as long as he doesn't have any patients.



Are we not men?

You guys sound like idiots... We have a justice system for a reason...You can't revoked his license for something he hasn't been proven guilty of..He is still innocent til proven guilty...

Someone asked about this but I forget who.



Aug 23rd court hearing will be the judge listening to both sides to see if the case should go to trial. If the judge says there is enough evidence he will then set a court date for the actual trial. Then the selection of a jury will start before the actual trial begins.

What the heck is wrong with the California judicial system? How many people will this man be allowed to kill be for the system takes notice. I hope Houston takes his licese away soon and doesn't follow suit with California. This man should not be practicing medicine on any level right now.

This just the worse, he is a murderer. Yeah he saved someone life on a plane, that is because he was not paid to kill her like he was paid to kill MJ..
