Dr. Conrad Murray's

Medical License SUSPENDED

1/11/2011 9:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray's medical license has just been suspended.

0111_conrad_murray_bn
Judge Michael Pastor just ordered the suspension, as a condition to Dr. Murray's bail in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case.

The Medical Board of California has asked the court twice before to yank Murray's license, to no avail.  But minutes after ordering Murray to stand trial, Judge Pastor granted the request.

Dr. Murray has 24 hours to notify the medical boards in Texas and Nevada of Judge Pastor's decision.

It's a devastating blow to Murray, because he needs to practice to make enough money to pay his legal team.  Murray's team believes the move is designed to take away his right to defend himself in the manslaughter trial.

A addict is going to go to any lengths to get drugs. If it was not this Dr. Mr Jackson would have found them somewhere else. Mr. Jackson is responsible for his own death.

People, Michael WOULD NOT WANT Dr. Murry convicted. Michael was too loving to hold any ill will against ANYONE, period.

Wake up people.

This is ridiculous to think that Jackson or his family, or his team didn't know what was going on....the thought of only one person to blame is ludicrous. Maybe his doctor acted negligently, but so did his friends, family and consultants. Conrad Murray takes a small part of the blame for this, Michael Jackson wanted these conditions and would have hired anyone or any doctor to acheive it. He must share in his own demise. But in California, remember, guilty until proven innocent....his best defense will be LA County Prosecutors, they will screw it up as they have done EVERY high profile case to come their way !!

It is ONLY suspended in California -- he is still licensed to practice in Nevada and Texas. Tiny bump in the road for the doc.

It seems Dr. Murray really didn't know what he was doing, but if he did it is gross negligence not just because he gave those drugs to Michael and obviously planned to continue to give Michael those drugs, but to have thought about himself above all, while Michael lay there dying is horrific.

Who would want this guy as a doctor anyway. If he screws up, then he lets you die while he covers up.
