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.

"Murray's team believes the move is designed to take away his right to defend himself in the manslaughter trial."

Hmmmm. Perhaps it could be because he was unethically, being the Dr. in charge, practicing deadly activities . . . not knowing how to administer mouth to mouth, as a cardiologist should know how to do . . . The list goes on . . . perhaps the judge is suspending Murray's license because it deserves to be.

Four years is not enough for this dangerous, egotistical monster. Even if Jackson fiddled with his IV, it's manslaughter. One should NEVER leave an anesthestized patient unattended. Not for a phone call, not for the bathroom, not for nothing. This is reckless indifference. SLAM HIM!!!!

Good god, MiMi, I thought you were more intelligent than that! That is all you can do, is sling an insult that is supposed to hurt me and make me feel like crap because I have a medical condition that I was BORN WITH? Why don't you go pick on Katie10, she sounds like a lunatic too and she has juvenile diabetes! Or pick on Janala4, a recovering addict (who I am proud of btw), but an addict just the same? Or pick on Tellit (if you have the GUTS) about her respiratory condition! No, you have to pick someone with a MENTAL or BRAIN disorder because it makes you feel better about yourself - you know, the old "tear them down to make yourself look good" thing? Well, it ain't working on me MiMi, and in any case your stupidity is showing. Which is worse? To be born with an illness or to be stupid at your age? I know the answer to that but let's see if you are smart enough to figure it out. Maybe YOU need to get a GED! As in General Education for Dummies.

Conrad Murray = Alive, BROKE & GOING TO JAIL

Michael Jackson = MURDER

I Say The Score Is:

CM = JAIL & NO MEDICAL LICENSE

MJ & THE MEDICAL COMMUNITY = JUSTICE WILL PREVAIL

It's about time.Now Nevada and Texas must do the correct thing and suspend Murray's license to practice in their states.Whether this will happen is another question.

"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." - TMZ

Lawyers.

ONE possible meaning of the above statement could be:

Judge announces the suspension, Murray's gaping his maw, and his defense team looks over at Murray - slapping him a condolence slap on the back said, "Well... got suspended. M'eh... them's the breaks. HOWEVER -- You'd BETTER find the $$$$ to pay us to continue for you, or you're going in there pro se. Got it? Good. Have a nice evening. :o)"

COULD be just bs whining specifically for public consumption, as the defense team is guaranteed payment regardless if Murray loses his ability to practice medicine... by whomever has been financing him thus far.

Anyone's guess.

BTW, TMZ: The live stream of your camping out waiting at the courthouse, asking the general public to "Stay tuned!", with baited breath/on pins and needles - post Judge Pastor's announcements? Well... coincides with the level of expertise standards you obviously utilize for your writing staff... soooo, you at least earn points for consistency? LOL


Seriously: tremendously incompetent camera coverage, let alone epic failure in catching so much as ONE WORD of comment from Flanagan when he finally came out (which this cameraman decided to be out in orbit, respectively - although for an HOUR - was front and center at the microphone poll) in proximity to EITHER of the doors...lol. EPIC FAIL.

How much are (have?) they paid/paying you to have trashed whatever professional integrity you may have had at any time previous to have anything to do with affiliating yourself with such poor quality coverage/writing, and 'reporting' at TMZ, Harvey...?

Rhetorical... of, course.

G'Nite.

The judge took his license to protect the public from a doctor who gave propofol to someone, didn't bother to get the necessary emergency equipment and monitoring things then left the patient alone to die.

Their was plenty of money for the emergency equipment and even plenty for a nurse as a backup he just did not care about Michael enough to do it the right way.

Nobody deserves to be at the mercy of a doctor with that attitude.

As far as cutting off his money to prevent him from defending himself, he gets a public defender which is the same as anyone else would get so how is that not fair?
