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.

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."

Human nature refers to the distinguishing characteristics, including ways of thinking, feeling and acting, that humans tend to have naturally.

The name fits Human perfectly. :)

Next the Jackson's will be saying they own the hospital MJ was born in!
----------------
that is not too far off, didn't you hear that they are trying to get the hospital to hand over the gurney and the condom catheter so that they can auctioning them off. BTW, Conrad has no worries, he has a collection of MJ's catheters for sale. more than enough to get a good appeal lawyer. His, his babymamas' and all the babies lives are set while the rabid fans are lining up to buy these condom catheters, dumb as rocks.

Unpleasaant Nature; Dr. Murray didnt start Michael abuse of drugs, he (Michael) had it going for years, WHY????? Because he had a burn once??? I dont think so.According to KNOWLEDGE of psychiatrics; People with drug addicts have a background for doing it, they just dont start using drugs out of the blue,, There is a reason for people to drink to take drugs, to escape from pain,, psychological pain. But I dont expect you to get my point. sorry,,:-) Just forget it.. and keep up your "not so nice" comments.

ah so.. CONNIE DISAGREES WITH THE JURY'S FINDINGS.. well!
He blames MJJ for dying on hm!
He blames everybody except HIMSELF-- this is WHY HE'LL END UP IN STATE PEN.

He's tempting fate.. he's only going to do 2 yrs.. atbest..& he's fighting it?

as for Flanagan.. of c ourse, HE'S UNDERWATER financially for Life that he will never recover from.. SO WHAT!

Murray was so damn complacent,reckless amoral.. when he already had a cushy job..with Mj.. all he had to do was put him sleep.. stay by his side & read a book.. & he can't
even do that.. HE HAD TO CALL HIS WHORES!
now. he's pissed.. he's in Jail???!!

THERE WAS NO "PROOF" THAT MJ WAS ADDICTED AT THE TIME OF HIS DEATH!!!


DID YOU READ THE AUTOPSY REPORT????


MJ ATE HEALTHY AND LIVE A CLEAN LIFE!!!!


THAT'S THE ARGUMENT OF THE DEFENSE TO CHARACTERIZE MJ BEING A DRUG ADDICT WHICH THEY NEVER PROVED!!!!


EVEN THE DEFENSE EXPERT DRUG ADDICTION SPECIALIST, Dr. Robert Waldman STATED THAT MJ WAS NOT A DRUG ADDICT!!!


"Would you diagnose Michael Jackson as addicted to Demerol based strictly on these do***ents in my hand, yes or no?'' Deputy DA David Walgren asked, holding up a stack of medical records.

"Probably not,'' Waldman answered.

California Medical Board Subpoenas Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson's Former PhysicianCalifornia Medical Board Subpoenas Dr. Arnold Klein, Michael Jackson's Former Physician

WENNBy Jen Heger - Radar Legal Editor

The California State Medical Board has formally subpoenaed Michael Jackson's former physician and long time friend, Dr. Arnold Klein to appear at a hearing on December 15, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Dr. Klein's lawyer, Herbert Weinberg, advised the dermatologist on November 30, via letter, that he would no longer be representing him for the California Medical Board proceedings.

The letter states: "Please be advised that our company is withdrawing as your counsel. We urge you to obtain counsel as soon as possible, as you have been subpoenaed to appear before the Medical Board on December 15, 2011. Failure to appear may result in the Medical Board petitioning the administrative courts for suspension of your license to practice."

During Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial in connection with the death of Michael Jackson, it was revealed that Dr. Klein gave Jackson staggering amounts of the powerful painkiller, Demerol when he would get Botox injections.

Dr. Klein didn't testify during Murray's trial, but Jackson's medical records while under his care were presented by Murray’s defense. Over a three day period in April 2009, Jackson received a whopping 775 milligrams of Demerol.

The California Medical Board wouldn't comment on what Dr. Klein will be questioned about.

Dr. Klein's lawyer, Garo Ghazarian didn't immediately respond to comment.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Dr. Conrad Murray was sentenced to four years in jail for the involuntary manslaughter of Jackson, who died of acute Propofol intoxication on June 25, 2009.

Hello HN & Mac The Knife!

I hope that you are having a wonderful evening. Yes, you are both right. Murray is going to try and take down Klien with him! Which I am not too all concerned about - simply because that i have always felt that Klien had a lot to do with MJ's problems and stuff. so hopefully, by way of this action - the truth will come out and Klien will get what is comming to him!

You forget that Klein was appointed to the Board of the FDA there in California! Common Sense dictates - that whatever wrong doing's Klien did (which were many) aside from the way in which he has lied about MJ and that - when all the truth comes pouring out - what will happen to Kleins appointment then? What about his Medical License? And other things? Something to think about!
