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.

Even though I doubt MJ gave himself the final dose, he was at least partially to blame in his own death. Even though Murray had a great deal of fault, don't try to make it seem like he snuck in MJ's window and drugged him without his knowledge.


The restitution amount is a joke, he'll never be able to pay anywhere near that. At best, they can count of 20% of his income from nothing while he's on parole.


The fans were asking for a new story, here you go.

If Michael Jackson wanted to kill himself he would NOT have done it with a Doctor there, assuming that the so called Doctor could save his life. Either Michael did not know that Murray could not even perform CPR correctly OR he did NOT want to die. Go to hell, Murray.
