L.A. County Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor has been assigned Dr. Murray’s case. Pastor has previously overseen celebrity cases involving Cameron Diaz and Jason Priestley as well as a multitude of high-profile, non-celebrity cases. Dr. Murray faced several members of the Jackson clan and Judge Pastor today in the preliminary hearing. Fans were gathered outside the courtroom wearing t-shirts that sais "Justice For Michael".
Good news for Dr. Conrad Murray bad news for the rest of the world – he did not lose his medical license today. The judge suspended making a decision. Although TMZ is reporting that Dr. Conrad made an agreement with the Texas medical board to not administer Propofol or other heavy sedatives. This agreement is expected to be released Friday. Dr. Murray is saying that if his medical license is taken away then he won’t have money to pay for his defense. My question still is – who would have this guy as a doctor – it is beyond my comprehension who would go to this doctor.
The next preliminary hearing is sheduled for June 14th, 2010.
