Dr. Conrad Murray

Ordered to Testify

in MJ Wrongful Death Suit

EXCLUSIVE

0221conrad_murray

Katherine Jackson is getting her way ... a judge just ordered Dr. Conrad Murray to spill the beans in her wrongful death lawsuit against AEG.

According to legal docs, Mrs. Jackson wants Murray to testify about comments he made in his documentary, in which Murray said an AEG honcho told him, Jackson was on "death skid row" and AEG owned "the toilet paper he wipes his ass with" and "the f**kin' popsicles that his children are sucking on" and "if he doesn't get the show done he's over."

Mrs. Jackson thinks Murray's comments will help convince a jury AEG played fast and loose with her son's life, and that they happily hired the reckless doctor to care for him.

Murray fought the subpoena for his depo, but now he'll have to take the oath next month.

There are no drugs, other than some sort of anesthesia, that will "knock you out" all night".

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Really? You've never heard of sleeping pills or tranquilizers? They have been around for decades and even most prescription pain relievers will put people to sleep. Well that will work if you are not accustomed to throwing back 20 pills at a time.


Therefore, in your opinion, MJ needed anesthesia to sleep and the only thing wrong with it was the environment in which it was given.

As usual you prove how ignorant you really are.


You posed the question,


"Why would Murray want to give him something that would require him to sit at his bedside every night for weeks when he could have given him something to knock him out and go home to sleep in his own bed at night.".


There is NO drug other than anesthesia that "knocks you out".


Now, go brush your teeth.....

sedative [sed´ah-tiv]
1. allaying irritability, excitement, or nervousness.
2. an agent that does this. The usual mode of action is depression of the central nervous system, which tends to cause lassitude and reduced mental activity. Sedatives are distinct from tranquilizers, which also have a calming effect but unlike sedatives usually do not suppress bodily reactions. Sedatives may be classified according to the organ most affected, such as cardiac, gastric, and so on. Called also calmative.

The degree of relaxation produced varies with the kind of sedative, the dose, the means of administration, and the mental state of the patient. By causing relaxation, a sedative may help a patient go to sleep, but it does not put him to sleep. Medicines that induce sleep are known as hypnotics (some drugs act as sedatives in small amounts and as hypnotics in large amounts). The barbiturates, such as phenobarbital, are the best known sedatives and are also widely used as hypnotics. Other effective sedatives include paraldehyde and chloral hydrate. Sedatives are useful in the treatment of any condition in which rest and relaxation are important to recovery. Some sedatives are also useful in treatment of convulsive disorders or epilepsy and in counteracting the effect of convulsion-producing drugs. They are used to calm patients before childbirth or surgery. Restlessness in invalids, profound grief in adults, and overexcitement in children can be controlled by medically supervised sedation. Because many sedatives are habit-forming, they should be used with caution.

What part of this do you not understand???


Was MJ giving birth????


"Sedatives are useful in the treatment of any condition in which rest and relaxation are important to recovery."


So based on your research, the doctor should be set free!

Dr. Murray, I hope you will win your appeal and ask for compensation of $$$$$$$$$$$$$!!!

MooMoo,
Sure you can cut & paste but you lack the ability to read. Your post only proves my point., go back and read it.


Just for giggles, this is one of the definitions of anesthesia from the same source.

"an·es·the·sia n.
1. Total or partial loss of sensation, especially tactile sensibility, induced by disease, injury, acupuncture, or an anesthetic.
2. Local or general insensibility to pain with or without the loss of consciousness, induced by an anesthetic.
3. A drug that induces partial or total loss of sensation and may be topical, local, regional, or general, depending on the method of administration and area of the body affected."


Sleep is never actually mentioned, just the loss of sensation but we know, in the case of MJ's treatment, his loss of consciousness was a goal.


We now know that you, a fan, believes anesthesia was an acceptable treatment for MJ's difficulty sleeping. Well, by difficulty sleeping, as described my MJ, is not being able to get the 12-18 hours he felt he required. In his quest for the drugs he desired he demonstrated to someone sitting at his bedside that he woke up after only 5 hours. I wouldn't find it so strange for a "man" of his age to wake up after five hours sleep, let alone if someone was sitting in the room watching him.

LoL Dopey,


Your cut and past job was referring to a Local Anesthetic. Not General anesthesia, which is what propofol induces.

MooMoo,

Thank you god, she finally GOT something.
That was my point exactly.
You pick a meaning that seems to fit your argument and discard everything else, I had to show you that by example, like an infant.


Now would you care to explain how only general anesthetics are the only types of drugs that would cause someone to sleep?

Once again I point out that you Dopey asked;

"Why would Murray want to give him something that would require him to sit at his bedside every night for weeks when he could have given him something to knock him out and go home to sleep in his own bed at night."

------

You never asked about drugs that make you fall asleep. You asked about drugs that "knock you out".

Two very different things.


knockout [ˈnɒkˌaʊt]
n
1. the act of rendering unconscious

MooCow,
Sorry to use a term that could be taken several ways. Yes I wrote "knock him out", why didn't you take it as Murray giving him a sledge hammer to the skull? Since you lacked the intellect I clarified the types of drugs that may be used to aid a person to sleep in a post you obviously read.


Once again, you take one little nugget, impose the meaning you desire upon it, and ignore everything else that surrounds it. It actions and statements like this that discredit any interpretation of information or "facts" by you.

Sorry? Really? LoL

"why didn't you take it as Murray giving him a sledge hammer to the skull?"


Well if that is what you would have posted I would have addressed it as such.

I answered directly according to the question you posed.


You sir were discredited long ago.


Now what else you got?

Those are the comments that are deleted?

It's not like I called MiMi a festering puss boil on the a$$ of life. Which she is. I simply implied that she was like Forrest Gump minus the character and intellect.

Conrad Murray’s Attorney Ordered To Turn Over Criminal File & ‘Cooperate With Co-Counsel’

Posted on Feb 26, 2013 @ 4:09AM | By Jen Heger


WENN

Conrad Murray‘s attorney Michael Flanagan has formally been ordered to turn over his complete criminal file of Michael Jackson‘s one-time doctor and to cooperate with the former cardiologist’s appellate lawyer Valerie Wass, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

Wass filed a motion to compel with the appellate court and alleged that Flanagan hasn’t returned multiple phone calls, letters, and e-mails made by her.

EXCLUSIVE DO***ENT: Read The Court Order Involving Conrad Murray’s Criminal File

The court order, which was obtained by RadarOnline.com exclusively, says, “Mr. Flanagan advised the court by telephone that no response to the motion would be filed. Good causing appearing therefore, it is hereby ordered that Valerie Wass’ motion be granted as follows: J. Michael Flanagan is ordered to provide appellate counsel Valerie Wass his entire trial file and to cooperate with appellate counsel.”

The disgraced former cardiologist was sentenced to jail after being found guilty of involuntary manslaughter following the death of his patient Michael Jackson on June 25, 2009. Murray is currently appealing the conviction as he serves out a four year sentence at the Los Angeles County Men’s Central Jail.

As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Flanagan dropped Murray as a client, following a physical and verbal altercation involving himself, his son and Wass.

Shortly after the altercation, Wass filed a police report alleging Flanagan’s son pushed her. A Los Angeles County Sheriff’s spokesperson said it was a “very minor altercation,” but that there would be an investigation in to the matter.
