Dr. Murray: Key Witnesses Are Undermining Me!

3/16/2011 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lawyers for some key witnesses in Dr. Conrad Murray's manslaughter trial over the death of Michael Jackson went to court today, trying to avoid giving up what could be critical evidence in the case.

Lawyers for Dr. Arnold Klein -- Jackson's longtime doc -- and AEG honcho Randy Phillips asked the judge to quash subpoenas issued by Dr. Murray, requiring them to produce information about MJ that the defense claims is relevant to his death.

Murray wants to find out exactly what drugs and treatment Klein gave MJ in the months before his death.  TMZ reported Klein injected Michael with Demerol 51 times in the 3 months that preceded his death.

As for Phillips, we've learned Murray's team wants to know what interactions AEG had with Michael -- in particular, AEG's expectations about Michael's rehearsal schedule and its involvement in selecting Dr. Murray as Michael's doc.

Lawyers for 5 other witnesses, including Tohme Tohme, Michael's former advisor, also tried to quash their subpoenas.

So many people worship this self-proclaimed "King of Pop" but fail to acknowledge that he brought about his own death by abusing drugs. Regardless of these drugs being administered by doctors, the man was still paying someone to anesthetize him so he could sleep. Millions of people have trouble sleeping without resorting to such drastic measures but if you are ultra-rich and famous the rules just don't apply, except of course for the rules of death. I do agree that doctors need to be held accountable for their actions in caring for celebrities but these people are adults who make their own choices about how to treat their bodies.

The rules do apply to celebrities as well. Afterall, they don't put a gun to their doctors' head and make them give them whatever they want. They just offer them a lot of money and it's up to the doctors to either be greedy and take the money, or stay loyal to their profession. And as you see, some of them elect to be greedy and take the money without being loyal to their celebrity status patients' health and welfare.

So, it's not the celebrity's fault, because they are weak, but, instead their doctors' fault for being greedy and taking advantage of them.

If the official cause of Michael's death was Propofol (Diprivan), why would other medications prescribed or administered by other doctors be relevant? And if Propofol was not supposed to be administered outside a hospital, why wouldn't Murray, at the very least, be guilty of negligence, particularly when he was the doctor in charge and on-site?

I clicked on Michael's name and the story about murray came up. Your post is silly but not nearly as silly as you are.
I blasted murray's fake PR tactics last night. Murray is a liar, a jerk and a killer. There, are you happy now?

By the same token, please tell the other rabid fans, including yourself to stop asking why we come here to MJ's board if we hate the guy.

More specifically, when we click on google for pedophile, MJ's name came up along with his picture, even in wikipedia, that's why we come and blast the pedophile, the liar, the manipulator, the hypocrite, the pr whore - MJ, the evil devil all in one person. Don't really care if you are happy or not!

Stop being delusional in thinking that we rabid MJ fans really care about why you MJ haters continue to waste your time coming to MJ sites to rant about him being a pedophile. Something that he was only accused of by two trifling boys and their trifling families. Both of which admitted that they lied. And after going to trial was proven innocent. The fact that this is the only thing you all have to talk about concerning MJ, only confirms that MJ haters are really just jealous of him, and are only just hiding behind the pedophile accusations.

You are not here to defend MJ, He is dead, he does not need to defend anything if he was not guilty of anything. But you are here to spread the evil's message that as long as you are rich and have a few stupid supporter on your side, you can molest children, hire lawyers and PR to manipulate the law and public opinions, manipulate the no sayers, harm and steal from people who you do business with, and buy your ways into God like images including a false parenthood, and last but not least vilify most of your family including your own parents.

You are an idiot!! I'm not hear to defend the old cases. the verdict was handed down. I'm done with it. I'm here to defend Michael's life because he was murdered. I'm not here to sell anything about the GOD of Isreal. Yet I will always defend my belief in HIM as the only true living GOD. As for anything else in your stupid post......please just shut up....good grief.........

It doesn't matter if Klein gave him 1000 injections of Demerol in one day. Demerol did not cause the death. It doesn't matter what Randy Phillips expected of MJ, etc., it was Propofol, negligently obtained by Murray, administered it out of a hospital setting that had nothing to do with a medical procedure or surgery, the patient, if that's what we want to call MJ, was properly monitored, and he died. That's the bottom line, and Klein and Phillips are right. They are irrelevant to the case. Murray's lawyers are trying to create a smokescreen.

Michael died of a huge OD of Propofol given by you AT HOME
where it never belonged.That ewas the cause of death. So you are on the latest try to avoid blame nd guilt.Why dis you not refuse to give him drugs?
