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.
