We're told Dr. Murray's lawyers want to re-test some of the fluids to determine the accuracy level of the Propofol found in Michael Jackson's body.

According to the L.A. County Coroner's report Jackson died of acute Propofol intoxication.

We've learned the Coroner has fluid samples and we're told they've been preserved.

Also today in court ... Judge Michael Pastor is expected to set a preliminary hearing date.  The spokesperson for Dr. Murray's lawyer, Ed Chernoff, has said whatever date the judge wants is fine with them ... "If he wants it next week, we'll be there next week."

What happened to FAST TRACK in the CALIF courts? It's time to kick this into gear. It's taking an unreasonable amount of time. I am starting to wonder why.

Human Nature, I agree with your post. Who is paying all of Murray's expenses? I think AEG has a hand in it. This man had no money before he became MJ's doc for the tour.

I thought the propofol was short lived ? If so, they will not get the the reading that the corner got. Is this how Murry's team is going to create reasonable doubt ?
