Jackson Family

Going After Dr. Murray's Money

... IS POINTLESS!!!

1/18/2012 3:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Prosecutors will no longer seek more than $100 million in restitution from Dr. Conrad Murray at the request of Michael Jackson's family, because as the proverb goes ....you can't squeeze blood from a turnip.

A rep for the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office says prosecutors were informed that the Jackson family is giving up on restitution ... so the D.A. withdrew the request.  As a result, the restitution hearing scheduled for Monday has been called off.

Murray -- who's serving a 4 year jail sentence for his role in the death of MJ -- is basically broke ... and now that his medical license has been revoked, it's unclear how he plans to earn money once he's released.

It seems the Jackson family finally decided it wasn't worth the time or the energy to battle for scraps.

I wonder if they think he would be more likely to testify in their civil suits against AEG if they dont go after his imaginary money..
His life is over anyway..Who is going to hire this guy?

What happened to the rabid lunatics theories that the estate will take him for all he is worth? WHAAT another thing they have no idea what they are talking about. Thats what you get when you blindly follow a pedo with motion detectors outside of their bedrooms.

The Jacksons are too busy with their lawsuit against AEG, to stop Michael's real killer - Murray - profitting from his death. Now thanks to them withdrawing the request for restitution, Murray can live a high profile life after he serves his two years. Thanks a lot.

good - it's time for the family to start moving forward - if murray starts to make $$ - especially because of michael, they can always reinstate - but i bet as soon as murray gets out of jail, he is leaving the country - some place were they don't care if he has a license or not

Going after his money is pointless - for now. But what if he writes a book, with the double purpose of vindicating himself and earning money? What other source of income would he have?

Such a book would be filled with what it he and publishers think it takes to meet demands, so I don't think we could expect it to be entirely truthful, to say the least. I hope no publisher would be interested, but if? Then he would make money from his crime.

I doubt VERY seriously Murray will live a high profile life. Yea, he'll always be recognized, but not in any positive light. The ONLY thing I can see this guy doing is stopping for pictures on the street by people who are ignorant enuff to just wanna take pics based on the fact he's notorious. He's a loser, HE'LL be the one addicted to painkillers from dealing with the everyday bulls**t of knowing what he's done, and we'll all witness him deteriorate. Let him keep his change, he's paying anyway. And, if he EVER starts making money to sustain himself by cashing on MJ's death, the majority won't allow that for long..

Yeah the jackson family shouldn't be so greedy the doctor has already lost his job so just let it go i dont agree with the decision of him revoking his license because i don't believe he is solely responsible for the death of MJ

Aw, please give the attorneys a crying towel. They were the only ones who would have benefited $$ from this anyway - they would have dragged it out until Newt Gingrich married a black woman. They did the right thing.

More like someone explained to them that they would be deposed and the full extent of their decades of leaching would become public knowledge.
