The lawyer knows its not going good for his client, but should have known that coming into this case. Murray was just plan wrong, no matter if the patient was an addict. If he just said no, he wouldnt be there, and 1.8 milli poor.

Ah, yes, the ol' pinch-the-nose-bridge-for-effect tactic. Taught the first week in high school drama class.
Murray will be found guilty, fined, have his license revoked, he'll write a book, make millions and retire back to Grenada where he was born as one of their elite. Film at 11.

he like walked out yesterday. what's Chernoff thinking, defending the indefensible. Murray looks even more guilty than ever, but who know, its up 2 the jury. it would take a miracle for Murray to walk out free. but Chernoff face here says it all. i would have the same face expression if i were him.

Jackson judge calls attorney's interview shocking


LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The judge overseeing the trial of the doctor charged in Michael Jackson's death told the lead defense attorney Friday that he found an interview his law partner conducted on the case "shocking" and possible grounds for contempt.

Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor told attorneys he watched the interview during a break with his mouth open because attorney Matt Alford is identified as a member of Dr. Conrad Murray's defense team and criticized a key prosecution witness.

The judge noted that Alford used the pronouns "we" and "our" to describe decisions about the doctor's defense.

Alford, a partner of Murray's lead defense lawyer Ed Chernoff, was interviewed outside the courthouse by "The Today Show."

"I sat there with my mouth open" while watching the interview, Pastor said, because Alford was identified as a member of Murray's defense team, according to court transcripts. He also called the interview shocking.

Attorneys and the judge huddled in several sidebar conferences throughout the day on the issue.

Alford criticized a key prosecution witness, Alberto Alvarez, in the interview. Alvarez, a bodyguard for Jackson, testified Thursday that Murray scooped up vials of medicine and placed them in a bag before telling him to call 911.

Pastor ordered Alford to appear in his courtroom on Nov. 15 for a contempt hearing. At the end of a heated conference on the issue, Pastor said Alford was considered a witness.

That came after Chernoff told the judge to hold him in contempt and not punish Alford.

Prosecutors complained about the interview Friday morning.

The interview with Ann Curry came hours after the judge warned defense attorneys not to comment on the case out of court.

"I am serious about interviews and about commenting on the state of the evidence or on credibility or on the overall issues in the case," Pastor told the defense team Thursday afternoon, a transcript shows.

Alford is not one of the attorneys representing the doctor in court in his involuntary manslaughter case.

Michael Jackson Was A Pedo    

I heard that Michael Jackson's dying wish was to be melted down and turned into straws so he can still get sucked on by kids.

Ed Chernoff certainly seems motivated, but he has trouble stating his points clearly. And, his defense strategy is highly suspect. He says MJ "died instantly" when Murray was out of the room, but propofol doesn't kill instantly. It causes suffocation and takes maybe 15 minutes to kill. Chernoff claims MJ must have injected himself with propofol from a 20 ml syringe found at the scene, but 20 ml isn't enough propofol to be lethal. (20 ml is a bit over a tablespoon. Conrad Murray had given Michael FOUR GALLONS of Propofol over the previous two months.) Chernoff claims Murray was just trying to treat MJ's alleged Demerol withdrawal, but Murray was giving MJ propofol for months, and Demerol withdrawal doesn't take months. (PLus, MJ wasn't taking enough Demerol to cause serious withdrawal symptoms.)

We haven't heard from any defense witnesses yet, but so far, Ed Chernoff seems outgunned by the prosecutors.

I'm on the side of the prosecution for sure, and really hope Murray is convicted. But Chernoff just looks so unhappy and I kind of feel bad for him. I wonder if he realized just how hard it would be to defend Murray when he took the case...But I guess someone had to, and it turned out to be him?
