Conrad Murray

To Take the 5th

In Katherine Jackson Suit

3/17/2013 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0221conrad_murraySounds a little weird, but Conrad Murray -- who has already been convicted and serving time for killing Michael Jackson -- will exercise his 5th Amendment right against self-incrimination in Katherine Jackson's lawsuit against AEG.

Michael's mom is suing AEG, claiming the company negligently hired and supervised Murray, which resulted in her son's death. Katherine has subpoenaed Murray to explain his arrangement with AEG.

Sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... Murray's lawyer, Valerie Wass, will file legal docs ... arguing she is appealing Murray's conviction, and if it's overturned it's likely he'd be re-tried. If that happens, what he says could still be used against him, so Wass wants Murray to keep his trap shut.

It's pretty crazy, since Murray has already served almost a year-and-a-half.  By the time his case is appealed, he'll probably be out.

Murray was scheduled to be deposed on Monday, but that has now been canceled.

"Michael was an addict"


Ummm, what was he addicted to exactly?


And what's up with the Branca hate? Oh yeah, I'm sure he had it in for Michael. Just as he had it in for all the other entertainers he represented over the years. Whatever.....

And Here's Brigha spreading falsehoods about the Jackson clan being tight.


Quoting Michael's in his own words, "tight knit my ass".

My apologies to Brigha.


It is a well known fact in the fan community. He can be heard saying this in the Glenda tapes.


You ever heard of those?????

What I Think    

Imagine that, MJ fans. Dr. Murray has served almost a year and a half of his sentence. What happened to the legion of MJ fans that you all predicted would murder him while he was in jail?

Murray is hoping for a new trial even if it happens after his release? Looks like Murray is looking to get his license back and possibly profit from killing Michael Jackson. That is if he thinks that the verdict would be different. What happens if he is found guilty again? Does he go back to jail again? No. Once he has served his time for the crime he has nothing to lose. All he is looking for is to sell his story to the tabs. Like he hasn't already done that.

Luz, I agree with every word of your post.
To
I Was About to Say:
May I remind you that it is Katherine, not the kids, who is the primary beneficiary.
And, regarding the coroners report you mentioned in a previous post, you have misunderstood the findings.

The coroner said death was due to propofol WITH CONTRIBUTORY BENZODIAZAPINE EFFECT.
In short, MJ had enough benzos in him to floor an elephant. Whilst Lorazepam and Diazapam did not kill him, they are evidence of tranquilliser dependency.
How on earth can you say he was in perfect health?

What the heck are you talking about? Katherine is NOT the primary beneficiary, the children are.

AND regarding your diagnosis that because Michael had other drugs in his system, that he was addicted to them, is completely erroneous.


You definitely don't know what you are talking about......

Don't bother researching the Glenda tapes, they are not authenticated. And as for the tapes being played at the 2005 trial, that is nonsense too.

There is so much craziness polluting the fan sites nowadays that junk like that ends up being touted as 'evidence'.
