There was a pre-trial hearing this morning in the Dr. Conrad Murray’s manslaughter case where he is accused of being responsable for Michael Jackson’s death. The Judge threatened to fine both the District Attorney’s office and Dr. Conrad Murray’s defense team for withholding evidence. Apparently both sides are complaining that the other are not cooperating and the judge is fed up and has had enough.
Judge Pastor said: “I want to emphasize I am considering very seriously the imposition of monetary sanctions at this point.” Going on to say that he could fine each lawyer $1,500, and this could cause a delay in the trial beginning as scheduled on March 24th.
“I seriously am considering all sorts of responses to the discovery situation,” the judge said.
There is another hearing scheduled for Wednesday and the judge has made it very clear that there had better be a lot more cooperation between the two. What a waste of the tax payers money! Dr. Conrad Murray is clearly responsable for the death of Michael Jackson – just put him in jail and throw away the key!
