Jackson Family

Going After Dr. Murray's Money

... IS POINTLESS!!!

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 and now that his medical license has been revoked, it's unclear how he plans to earn money once he's released.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.

There are many things one can do with a medical backgroud besides being a doctor. There's reserach, administration and a host of other things. Of course, I don't know who will hire him, but I think he'll be fine.

Doesnt Murray have insurance while he was a doctor? I know that it can be waived but he had at least 2 offices in 2 states that I knew of.

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"

You are wrong. The medical board of California decided, based on his OWN rendition of events when MJ died, that he had conducted I think 17 counts of gross neglect. That's enough to take his license.


If other people in any way also were not nice to MJ, has nothing to do with Murray's responsibility. Those things don't even each other out. Murray did what he did, he must pay for it and other people be protected from him.

Hmmmmm


Not sure if this is a good thing or not. Had they went forward with the restitution it would have kept Murray from gaining from anything MJ related in the future. Any profits he may have earned in the future would have gone first towards whatever the restitution amount was that was determined by the judge.

On another note, I'm still waiting for Texas to revoke that one remaining medical license the Quack still holds.


What's up Texas???????????

The Jackson family decided to stop pursing restitution because they didn't want anymore talk about Michael being responsible for his own death! Sure the doctor was basically the drug dealer but Michael was the addict.

Of course greedy unnatural mother Katherine and her worthy husband Joe are too much busy to ask for money from AEG but not from a murderer!!! They couldn't care less about murderer's money since they didn't suffer the loss of a son but only of his money and have already acted from the beginning to make money off him, through not only their shameful lawsuits, but above all through the exploitation of his children, which are without any guide, they are so disgusting, just like him!!!!!
