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.

All doctors PROVED that Michael died due to murray's IGNORANCE and DELAY.


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%.

Is the money going to bring Michael back? Will IT EASE the children's pain of losing their BELOVED father? The prosecution should have DEMANDED more years in prison for murray instead of asking for alot of money.When you say family who exactly do you mean? Michael's children or the rest of the clan?

Duidumdum

God speaks to you daily? Really? You must think those voices you keep hearing in your head is the Almighty. God would never condone the hate you, along with all your other nics spread on these boards. You do that in your real life too? I bet you don't.


It's been obvious for quite some time that you are completely obsessed. Or maybe a better term to describe you would be posessed.

LMAO TOO DAMN FUNNY!!

THIS PERSON THINKS THEY ARE BEYOND BEING A PERFECT PERSON AND NEVER DID ANYTHING WRONG IN THEIR LIFE. I WONDER IF THIS PERSON IS AS BRAIN WASH AS THE MORMONS ARE, WITH THEIR MADE UP BS ON HOW THEY BELIEVE? YOU KNOW MAKE UP THEIR OWN BIBLE AS THEY GO ALONG IN LIFE.

GOD SAID: DO NOT ADD TO NOR TAKE AWAY FROM MY WORD. ISN'T THAT WHAT THEY GUY THAT MAKE THE BOOK OF MORMON DID?

ONE LADY I KNOW THAT IS A MORMON THINKS THEY WILL BE GOD'S IN HEAVEN, AND THERE ARE 3 KINDOMS IN HEAVEN ON HOW YOU LIVE YOUR LIFE. THE TOP KINDOM WILL BE WITH GOD AND CAN GO TO VISIT THE 2ND AND 3RD KINDOMS, BUT THE 2ND AND 3RD CAN'T GO UP TO THE 1ST KINDOM TO VISIT LOVE ONES. WTF IS THIS? LOL

Elvis's doctor did not give that drug (Diprivan/Propofol) that knocks people out for an operation to Elvis. Michale's doctor didn't try to stop Michael, or he wouldn't have given him that drug, or refuse to give him that drug, even if Michael ask him for it, or beged him to get it for him.
Michael's doc did wrong. Elvis had bad health problems and was over-weight.Elvis died of what? A heart attack. Not from some doctor given him a real strong drug that killed him. This is why Michale's doctor is in jail, he misuse a drug that took a life. Elvis's doctor didn't. There is a big difference between the two.

my murry, The fact is that you are the licensed doctor and you should have told him NO!
If you hadn't given him the drugs he would be alive. End of story.
