Dr. Murray Keeps Nevada Medical License

2/15/2011 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Conrad Murray just cashed in on some Vegas luck -- because TMZ has learned he can keep practicing medicine in Nevada.

0114_conrad_murray_EX_TMZ_01

Sources at the Nevada State Board of Medical Examiners tell us ... "Nevada law does not currently allow us to swipe his license just because a judge ruled on it."

As we previously reported -- Murray's California medical license was recently suspended as a condition of bail in his manslaughter case.

The Texas Medical Board has yet to decide what to do with the Doc's license.

Why some are so happy it is Michael Jackson that died is beyond me. Just shows that you are heartless and just not a very nice person. I hope nothing like this ever happens in your family and others find joy in at at your expense!

I for one am NOT happy Michael died. I DO agree Dr. Murray was negligent. BUT - even though the fans agree with me on those 2 things, what I DON'T like is the arrogant, self-righteous, judgmental, hypocritical fans who have a tendency to get in your face without even reading your whole post. I have NEVER said I hate Michael. I have NEVER said I was glad he died. I have NEVER said Conrad Murray should not be held accountable for his actions (or inactions). But of course because my name is spelled D-E-B I am going to be lumped in with the actual haters, who btw are entitled to their opinions, too.

And for MiMi, I have news for you. The Magic Eraser doesn't work on only the messages YOU want poofed. You may or may not be an internal but you certainly seem to have a sense of power here which makes me wonder what's up with that. And the fact that your personality is as abrasive as sandpaper is what makes people dislike you. Just thought I'd give you the heads up that you are not as nice and sweet as you want people to think you are. :)

Master Po    

This man got rid of a 2 time accused pedophile and will get house arrest IF THEY PROVE he is guilty. Which they wont since the burden of proof is huge.

Mark my words once the wacko stuff starts to come out in court on TV the prosecution will be trying to get him to give in to a plea deal cause the family dont want the freaks business out there, otherwise how will they feed the morons who buy everything they say? Which when that happens Dr Murray does 1-2 months house arrest, is reinstated as a Doctor and the MJ wackos will be done with it cause they are rational human beings who believe in forgiveness... HAHAHAH YEAH OK

I can not WAIT to see how many of the morons run away from this site when either the words NOT GUILTY or 2 MONTHS HOUSE ARREST is spoke by the judge. This place will be pleasant with out these maniacs around here as much.

What is he doing flying back and forth to NV to tend patients? He is knee deep in court muck not playing cardiologist right now so the license is a non issue. If he is found not guilty he is free to live his life as he has been, if guilty surely NV will revisit this....well it is NV so maybe not.

THIS IS BULL_****IN_****! If this bitch lived in Iraq we wouldn't even be talking about his license because his ass would've been hung already. There is something wrong with the justice system in America. When black people are killed they say, "Oh well just another *****".

Well, let's just hope the Texas Medical Board isn't so stupid. I would hate to call my homestate medical board a bunch of wussies but I may have to. Texas needs to man up and suspend him like California did.

Possible conflict of interest delays new lawyer for Dr. Murray


Angeles (CNN) -- The judge delayed a decision on allowing a new lawyer to join Dr. Conrad Murray's defense team until he can determine if there is a conflict of interest.

The lawyer, Nareg Gourjian, had worked on Michael Jackson's child molestation defense.

Murray, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, wants Gourjian to replace Joseph Low, who left the defense team earlier this month.

Gourjian's former law firm, headed by lawyer Mark Geragos, raised the possible conflict of interest before Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor at a hearing Tuesday.

"We have a great amount of respect for Mr. Gourjian, but it is our duty to disclose his participation in our past representation for Mr. Jackson," Geragos and Geragos attorney Pat Harris said.

The Geragos firm represented Jackson for two years starting in 2003, when he was charged with child molestation. Jackson replaced Geragos with Thomas Mesereau in 2004, saying he wanted an attorney who would devote his full time to his case.

Geragos was also defending Scott Peterson, who was charged with murdering his wife, at the same time.

Gourjian told the judge he was "in no way inolved" in the Jackson case because he was "a brand-new lawyer" busy working on the Scott Peterson murder case at the time.

The decision rests on if Gourjian's work for Jackson was "substantially related" to the current case and if his work for the defense would require "Gourjian to attempt to discredit his former client directly or indirectly," Pastor said.

The judge delayed a decision until more facts are provided by Geragos and there is a response from the lawyer for Michael Jackson's estate.

Mark Geragos will be asked to appear at the next hearing on February 24, the judge said.

Murray is also represented by Houston lawyer Ed Chernoff and J. Michael Flanagan of Los Angeles.

The defense demanded a speedy trial at last month's arraignment, the trial to start by the end of March. Jury selection is now set for March 24.

Sure wish deb would go to Houston and hook up with Dr. Murray!
Maybe he could shut her up for good!

You were just telling us what a nice person you are! And here you are wishing death on me because you don't like me? My god. I would never wish that on you no matter how much I don't like you.

You make me sick. You have lied over and over again, you are smug, you laugh because you think people really believe and/or like you. But you would be surprised at how many people who don't wish to be drawn into the conflict of the board have told me how they despise you. Odd how the people who "like" you, are just like you. Funny how that works!

You're not fooling anybody. Well, except maybe yourself.
