Dr. Conrad Murry

Shot Down Again

Over Jury Sequestration

9/7/2011 10:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dr. Conrad Murray
's legal team failed again in its attempt to sequester the jury in the Michael Jackson manslaughter case.

A California appeals court just ruled ... the trial judge -- Michael Pastor -- did not abuse his discretion when he decided not to sequester the jury.

The latest decision is no surprise -- appeals courts don't micro trial judges.

The upshot -- the trial will now proceed as scheduled, with the jury selection beginning tomorrow.

Dr. Shafer believes, "There is almost nothing in Murray's care of Michael Jackson that reflected the actions of a trained physician."

Not a surprise, really. No CA jury has been sequestered since O. J. Simpson's trial in 1995. And, Judge Pastor is keeping the trial focused on Murray's actions, not on MJ's personal life, so the media circus may not get very intense.

Once the trial gets going in a few weeks, I plan to have a website with commentary and analysis. Please follow my twitter account, @ManInMirrorNews for details.

Everything that can be written about MJ's death has been out there since it happened. I doubt there can be much else other than what comes out in the courtroom, so why put jurors through sequestration? It just drives them nuts and by the time they decide a verdict they may flip a coin just to be free again.

this is no surprise at all..i dont think the jury needs to be sequestrated
besides murray has gone around with his own public relations team that lets tmz and other tabloids know where he is..even has introduced himself as mj doctor for people who dont recognize him...he wanted the spotlight ..he getting it now,,.
mj had ten years of negative tabloid press, leaked grand jury transcripts amd the entire media against him including and not limited to nancy grace..14 not guilty verdicts...complete vindication..
the jury will hear the evidence in this case and come to a decision..glad this thing is finally moving forward.

Little feet so small and cute. Walking without Shoes over desert soil. Covered in Blood, the little Toes. Smal little Hands holding on, holding on to Dear life. No Home, no future to a child so tiny and small. Counting its Corn Pebbles in its Tiny Hands. Who knows what tomorrow brings. Every edge from sharpend stone cutting so deep, so deep into its little Feet. Barely 7, feeling so alone and so old, so grown. A poor little child. We all need to strech out our hands, give help to a child in need. We all need to start to do good deeds. America will become this to our Future children and grandchildren unless we step up change and start careing!!!!

I hope they have a microphone in Conrad Murray's cell the first night he's in the general population. He'll be screaming even higher than Michael Jackson.
