Dr. Conrad Murray

Back to Court to Prove

MJ Partly Caused His Own Death

1/10/2012 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Conrad Murray
Dr. Conrad Murray
is asking the judge in his criminal case to deny Michael Jackson's family full restitution, on grounds MJ caused his own death.

Murray filed legal docs yesterday -- obtained by TMZ -- asking for evidence the defense never received during the trial ... evidence that could show Michael self-administered the fatal dose of Propofol.

Murray's lawyer, Michael Flanagan, argues that in deciding how much restitution the family gets, it's appropriate to consider the victim's responsibility for his own demise.

So Murray will concede he's partly to blame -- he can't argue otherwise because of the conviction -- but he still wants to prove that MJ ultimately caused his own death.

The prosecution is asking for around $100 million in restitution, but the judge hasn't decided on a figure.  But once the figure is set, if Flanagan gets his way and the judge were to decide MJ was 50% responsible for his death, the judge would reduce the restitution award by 50%.

So the fat lady hasn't sung ... yet.

Murray needs to take accountability and deal with what HE allowed to happen. He hasn't any funds or means to acquire them. so, any "restitution" is only symbolic anyway.
One of those big inmates needs to get all of us the real restitution we deserve. And I hope they "restitute" him over & OVER again :)

OMFG he is so pathetic STILL trying to blame it on Michael, when the autopsy PROVED Michael couldn't have administered it to himself. Murray is a pathetic excuse for a human being, I pray KARMA get his ass. Michael was the victim *******! It doesn't matter if he wanted it or not THE DR is the one who's in charge not the Patient!! end of story, he should have said NO> Justice4MJ

Michael Jackson Was A Pedo    

Dr. Conrad Murray = HERO



Murray doing jail time is a small price to pay for being the hero that he is. The guy did the world a massive favor and made it safer by ridding it of the post dangerous and famous child predator of all time. I hope MJ suffered as he died just as all of his victims have had to suffer.
Thank you Dr. Murray. You are truly a hero.

Con Rat Murder Ray your idiocy is so unlimited! just for that its good for a so called "Dr" like you to be locked!

If it wasn't you someone else would have giving it to him... bla bla bla!!! well that someone else would have been in jail just like you now! 4 years is not fair for your murder! maybe that's why you still crying like a spoiled baby... but it is your right to try to con the system and get an even lighter sentence. Good job for the judge who read right through you.

BEVERLY    

There has always been one statement that told me Michael would have NEVER injected or took "Propofol" himself.Michael felt that drug was safe as long as he was monitored,and if no one was in the room,Michael would have waited and called out for Dr Murray.I myself will always think Dr Murray wanted to make personal calls,and did not want to be interrupted,so he gave Michael large amount of "propofol" and stepped out of the room,Michael died when Murray was out of the room,Thus all the lying and not wanting to tell E.M.T. or E.R. doctor he gave"Propofol" I ALSO THINK THE AMOUNT OF MONEY ASKED BY THE jACKSON FAMILY IS FAIR
