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."

Murry can not explain away or blame away! The facts remain the same.
Lets say for ****s an giggles he didn’t give him the fatal dose.

He was hired as a professional to preserve life. No matter who else gave Michael Diprivan, No matter how many times he took in the past. He died on Murray’s watch. Had he not provided the stuff, agreed to administer it, and store subsequent doses in the house for future use. NONE of this would have happened.
He threw caution to the wind, and dismissed the proper and correct way to administer the drug makes him a dangerous individual who has no business practicing Medicine. Michael did not provide the doctor with the drugs that killed him.
For example: If your child accidentally overdoses on something that you as a parent had a responsibility to keep out of reach who get punished?
If that child dies because he put poison in his mouth, the law does not dismiss the fact of negligence of the parent, and say well it’s the kids fault for getting into things. This is no different.

If Michael injected himself it was because Murry left the him alone in a state of mind that rational thought process was absent because he was under the influence of other drugs given by the doctor, He is responsible for the death because he was acting in the capacity of his personal doctor. Mj can not be blamed just as a child cannot be blamed for parents who left rat poison out and only left the room for a minute. He was being paid to take responsibility for Michaels well being.
Michael loved life so much he paid TOP DOLLAR to make sure HE HAD SOMEONE HE COULD TRUST!
SOMEONE WHO WOULD’NT LET ANYTHING HAPPEN TO HIM. A DOCTOR, NOT A FRIEND, NOT THE NEIGHBORHOOD DRUG DEALER A LICENSED PROFESSIONAL,
Michael knew the pain it would cause his mother and children and his fans if something happen, He did what we all do he relied on the Doctor to do whatever was best for him.
And the doctor failed.
