Conrad Murray

Appeals Manslaughter Conviction

12/2/2011 3:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1002_cm_EX_appeal
Dr. Conrad Murray has just filed an appeal, challenging his conviction for involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson ... TMZ has learned.

Murray filed the document in pro per -- which means he's representing himself instead of using a lawyer.

On the portion of the document where a lawyer will usually state his or her firm's contact information -- Murray lists "Men's Central Jail" ... and includes his booking number.

While he is representing himself, Murray is still communicating with one of the lawyers who repped him in the manslaughter trial, Nareg Gourjian.

update_bar
Gourjian tells TMZ ... "This case presents a gold mine of issues for any appellate lawyer.  Dr. Murray is confident that the Court of Appeal will vindicate him."

aha.,. MAUREEN ORTH.. that's her name who wrote for VANITY FAIR.. the self-styled Michael Jackson expert just like DIMOND.

yeah.. I remember it well.. she got in touch with Feldman dduring the 1993 allegations.. & she was so overwhelmed she g ot access to CHANDLER.. whilst the MJ lawyers just ignored her. Then ;ater on-- she was in bed with RAY CHANDLER.. a s***bag of a lawyer!

duh.. for supposedly smart reporters-- amazing they can b e taken in by FELDMAN,SNEDDON,RAY CHANDLER.. ARVIZOS..

Yeah.. I know-- when these allegations came in-- IT REALLY TURNED THEIR HEADS.. F OR THEM IT WAS A CAREER MOVE.. A REAL CAREER MOVE.. T HEY THOUGHT THEY'LL BE THE 'NEW' WOODWARD & BERNSTEIN.. they lost their heads & objectivity.

Oh.. Dimond,Stassi, esp ORTH.. were all over the chat shows the day MJ died.. it'll make your head spin-- the RUBBISH THAT CAME OUT OF THEIR MOUTHS! ALL THAT HOSTILITY.. FURY, OUTRAGE.. ALL STEMMING FROM MJ WAS ACQUITTED.. HENCE THEY DIDN'T BECOME BERNSTEIN & WOODWARD.. came tumbling out..

ORTH WAS LIKE A TOTAL SHREW.. SHE WAS LAMBASTING MJ WHO JUST DIED ON CBS THAT THEY HAD TO SCRAPED THAT INTERVIEW ON YOU TUBE.. & she's been hardly heard of since.. oh yeah.. she wrote some reports for VF.. I'm sure to honour a prior contract.. after?

lol.. the irony is.. when later generations check on what t hey all wrote-- it will show that they were 'in bed' with MJ detractors.. being sooo damn impressionable.. gullible.. stupid.. & nasty to boot.. full of themselves assuming they will bring down the biggest star.. & show he was a pedophile.

ha.. we can compare this to THE INQUISITION WITH GALLILEO.. now.. whose the FOOLS??" the Church of course. at least, Nancy Grace, Jane Velez-Mitchel..& others who jumped the gun during the Arvizo trial.. had/have t he 'good grace' to do right for Mj when he died.. & esp during this Moo-ray trial.

why was MJ broke? WELL.. MAINLY HE DID 2 MAJOR TOURS. & DONATED ALL PROCEEDS TO CHARITIES! did Mooray know this? OF COURSE,NO! and MJ still had the intention to give most of the proceeds for 02 to charity!

bar none.. it's the Guiness book-- Michael Jackson hasgiven the most to charity from any celebrity.MORE THAN OPRAH EVEN!

so for you pedo obssessed bozos.. SUCK ON THAT ONE!

PS: I noticed.. Orth,Dimond Stassi never once reported on EVan Chandler.. in fact, Dimond tried her damndest to soft sell why Evan killed himself.. I WILL TELL YOU WHY HE KILLED HIMSELF.. WHEN MJ'S PASSING REVERBERATED AROUND THE WORLD.. & THE WORLD MOURNED.. & THIS WENT FOR DAYS! EVAN CHANDLER.. SAW.. KNEW.. EVERYTHING HE TRIED TO DO TO MJ TO DESTROY WAS ALL FOR NOTHING! as Evan's ego demanded.. MJ will be a pariah forever.. HE WATCHED THAT MEMORIAL.. THE FUNERAL.. ETC.. ETC.. & THERE HE WAS ALONE.. WATCHING TV..WITH AN INCURABLE ILLNESS.. UGLY.. ULTIMATELY HE DIDN'T SUCCEED IN WHAT HE SET OUT TO DO WITH MJ.. then seeing MJ's kids at that memorial.. BASTARD! HE'S ROTTING IN HELL! HE COULDN'T STAND IT.. SO WHAT'S LEFT T O DO? HE BLEW HIS BRAINS OUT.. & HIS REMAINS WAS ROTTING BEFORE ANYONE FOUND HIM!

yeah.. that's what happened to the father of the boy who first accused Michael Joe Jackson of child molestation.. the real KARMA IS STILL OUT FOR THE ARVIZOS!

hmm.. LARRY KING had on several lawyers.. including Larry Feldman during the end of that Arvizo trial.. & he asked point blank to Feldman.. IF MJ EVER MOLESTED A CHILD.

HE AFTER ALL.. REPRESENTED EVAN CHANDLER IN 1993.. ah.. his words were measured.. but he stated this..

HE DOESN'T KNOW IF MR JACKSON EVER MOLESTED JORDAN..ETC.. BUT HE DID WHAT HE HAD TO DO(AS THE LAWYER) ..interesting comment,I thought.. he was admitting he used every dirty trick in the book to destroy MJ's reputation.. to squeeze Mj for a settlement.

anyone can check for that Larry King interview-- it's in CNN's archives!

Ed Chernof distanced himself from Murray in his speech right before sentencing. He said that Murray shouldn´t have agreed to give Michael Jackson Profofol.
Murray just keeps repeating that he did nothing wrong. He probably IS mentally ill,
Appeal? This man should consider himself lucky that he got away with involuntary manslaughter. Personally I think that a jury would have found him guilty of murder 2 - the judge certainly made it clear that he thought the sentence he could impose within the law, was way too low.

Well, that goldmine failed to materialize during the trial, so I doubt it will now. Murray did not make a human error and is overly harshly punished fot it, he was neglectful on important things, and there's a huge difference. And he is NOT fit to rep himself. I remember him saying in the infamous do***entary on when he disvocered Michael was gone: "I was alone! And I didn't have a phone! And I phoned Amir!"


(Amir being Michael's personal assistant, still at home at the time. Murray left him a voice mail instead of calling 911, which the prosecution star witness medical expert Shafer found utterly bizarre.)
