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.

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

All the Jackson family lawsuit are dull and never ending. Dr. Murray is already living in his own hell.

Michael Jackson Was A Pedo    

Dr. Murray = HERO


The guy is doing time for ridding the world of one of the most famous and dangerous pedophiles known to man. The good doctor should be given an award for saving so many children from harm. He may be hated now because there are so many pedo sympathizers out there but history will shine well on him. I wish him nothing but the best.

There is a magic mineral from nature that would have best treated MJ's insomnia and saved his life. Sadly, most Docs only taught to push drugs in med school will prescribe toxic deadly pills that will help you sleep...forever.

I really don't understand what Wass and her murderer client in their sick minds expect to overturn since no judge granted or will ever grant him whatever!!! His conviction already is absolutely extremely mild, he should have been convicted to death penalty, that's what the disgusting murderer really deseverd!!!! So now he doesn't want to testify in greedy unnatural mother Katherine's hunt for money lawsuit, murderer has no reason to make her a favor, he just wants to get out so can whoring again, for now murderer only must to rot in jail before finally rotting in hell for the whole eternity!!! They both are only disgusting!!!

I think it's funny how Katherine now wants and needs his help once money is involved. I hope Murray does keep his mouth shut. Bashed by the entire family and the entire world for something that was MJ's fault - a fact and issue that many people will quickly ignore as they need a scapegoat. Keep your mouth shut and don't assist them in any way, shape, or form.

This is the smartest decision this idiot ever made.

If he called 911 as soon as Michael ODed & not panicked, he wouldn't be sitting in jail today.

This whole thing is ridiculous! Michael was a grown man. He knew what he was getting into and chose to take that risk anyways. Suing everyone who worked with him is pointless. If Dr. Murray hadn't given him the Propofol, someone else would have. It's a shame that he died, but at the end of the day it was his own choice. He was paying to have that sh_t injected into his veins and it killed him.I fail to see how money is going to solve anything. Conrad Murray is already in prison. It seems the Jacksons wont stop till they've sued everyone who's ever known Michael.
