Conrad Murray returns to work
Michael Jackson’s personal doctor is back at work in Nevada after being bailed by the LA authorities, having been charged with involuntary manslaughter in relation to the late king of pop’s death.
Dr Conrad Murray is allowed to continue practising while the criminal case against him goes through the motions, though there are some restrictions on the drugs he is allowed to administer. Presumably the authorities would rather he didn’t go around pumping pop stars full of propofol, for example.
A spokeswoman for Murray said that he was making arrangements to practice at another doctor’s office in Las Vegas, having shut down his own premises in the city last August, just as the negligence claims in relation to Jacko’s death were starting to gain momentum.
It’s thought the California Medical Board are preparing to remove Murray’s medical licence for that state, but the doc also has licences for Nevada and Texas, using the latter for work in Houston.
In related news, an LA judge has postponed ruling on whether Jacko’s father Joe Jackson can obtain copies of medical records relating to his son’s death. It is thought Jackson Snr, who is currently tapping the Jacko estate for cash, is thinking about launching a wrongful death lawsuit against Murray and maybe others.
