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.
