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.

Jury Selection Begins in Michael Jackson Manslaughter Trial


More than two years after superstar Michael Jackson's death, a manslaughter trial for the singer's physician, Conrad Murray, officially began Thursday as attorneys screened the first of about 160... prospective jurors.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael E. Pastor introduced the jurors to Murray and asked whether they could serve on a trial lasting 25 court days – ending around Oct. 28. Opening statements are anticipated in late September.

When he asked the potential jurors, gathered in a jury assembly room, if there was anyone who had not heard anything about the case, no one raised a hand. Pastor expressed no surprise.

"We didn't expect you'd been living under a rock," he said, "or made a pit stop from Mars."

Murray, 58, is accused of over-sedating Jackson with the powerful anesthetic propofol and failing to notice that Jackson had stopped breathing for crucial minutes before finally calling 911.

Defense attorneys say Jackson drank propofol like milk, and suggest that someone other than Murray, perhaps Jackson himself, administered the fatal dose of the drug when Murray's back was turned.

Murray could get up to four years in prison if convicted of the felony charge of involuntary manslaughter.

Jurors who indicated they were available to serve received a questionnaire of about 30 pages asking them what they know about Murray and about Jackson's death at the age of 50 on June 25, 2009, and for their opinions about doctors, drugs and law enforcement.

All potential jurors in Conrad Murray trial aware of case


As jury selection got underway Thursday, Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor asked the approximately 160... prospective jurors if anyone had not heard of the case they may be asked to decide -- the involuntary manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson's doctor, Conrad Murray.

Not one person raised a hand.

"We didn't expect that you've been living under a rock for the last few years, or you'd made a pit stop here from Mars," Pastor quipped in the downtown Los Angeles courtroom.

The last time the judge had polled a jury pool, only one person said she had not heard of the case -- and the woman did not speak English.

Pastor cautioned potential panelists that because of the extensive publicity surrounding the case, they were going to have to take care to avoid any outside information about the trial -- especially in navigating the Web.

They are not to post any messages on social media, send or read Tweets or Google information about the case, he said. If they do, they could face jail time or fines for contempt of court.

"I certainly realize that for many of us, searching the Internet is as easy as breathing," he said.

Pastor told the prospective jurors that he had the option of ordering the panel sequestered throughout the trial, but had chosen not to. He said he was "reiterating [his] faith" in the jurors in doing so.

Instead, the jury deciding the case will be bused to the court from a secret location each morning, and escorted away every night. Jurors will not be allowed to leave the courthouse during the day, and will be served lunch at the court.
The potential jurors were then asked to fill out forms about whether serving on the jury would impose hardship on them.

Outside court, a lone supporter for Murray carried a sign reading: "I support Dr. Conrad Murray, an innocent man who must be exonerated."

Willie L. Hampton, 55, who said he was a friend of Murray's of three decades, said he shook hands with the many Jackson fans and agreed to keep peace.

Murray faces up to four years in prison for allegedly causing the death of his famous patient by overdose on a surgical anesthetic. The main trial is expected to begin later this month with opening statements.
