Michael Jackson's Physician Wins Medical License Ruling


Conrad Murray won a battle to keep his medical license but he is still not allowed to prescribe anesthetics.

Michael Jackson's former physician Conrad Murray has won a battle to keep his medical license. Murray, who stands accused of administering the anesthetic Propofol which killed Jackson, was told he could no longer use or prescribe anesthetics to California patients earlier this year and the state's Medical Board officials recently moved to suspend the doctor's license indefinitely.

Board bosses filed papers earlier June, requesting an order that Murray "cease and desist from the practice of medicine" until his criminal trial connected to Jackson's death is concluded. Murray pleaded not guilty to charges of involuntary manslaughter in February and, in court on Monday, June 14, he faced California Attorney General Jerry Brown, who urged Judge Michael Pastor to revoke the physician's license as part of his bail conditions.

During the hearing at a Los Angeles court, Murray's lawyer Ed Chernoff highlighted Murray's ability to practice medicine by recalling how his client came to a woman's aid after she passed out on a flight in May. But Murray's heroics did not help with his legal bid - Judge Pastor only allowed the doctor to keep his license on the grounds that he did not have the jurisdiction to suspend it, according to TMZ. A preliminary trial date to hear the involuntary manslaughter charges against Murray was set for August 23.
