Manslaughter case against Jackson doctor Conrad Murray will go to trial

The involuntary manslaughter charge against Dr. Conrad Murray in the death of Michael Jackson will be sent to trial, a Los Angeles judge ruled Tuesday.

Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor also prohibited Murray from using his California medical license until the trial is completed. The state medical board requested that be made a provision of his bail.

While Michael Jackson was Murray's only and last California patient, Murray's lawyer argued a suspension in one state would prompt Texas and Nevada, where he sees patients, to also take action.

Pastor denied the prosecution's request to increase Murray's bail, which is now set at $75,000.

      @america 1st anything less than an eyewitness is an assumption which is not factual. please look for truth a little farther than the media.they are there for entertainment and what boosts their ratings, which is negative news, i am sad to say. did you read the trial transcripts? do you even care about the real truth? love

    "Borders fall for profit but not for people"...if you can see this happening, pls. visit today's "preventable Gulf oilspill" board and read posts 14-16. If not, wake me up when this MJ case is "innocent" at the criminal trial and "guilty" at the civil trial so I can hit the snooze button. (same distraction technique has been used by corrupt political and religious leaders for centuries)

    @Shelley...ok. But I notice you have nothing to say about the worst environmental catastrophe in history .. Is MJ more important? Of course not. Read the "preventable oilspill" story and comments. Speak-out there where you words may have meaning. MJ is dead, nothing you say can bring him back. Pointing a finger at a drug-addict only means you have leftover fingers pointing at yourself. You know this to be true. Stop being distracted and voice your opinion where it might be heard.

    If not for one doctor, another one would take his/her place just to be MJ's personal anesthesiologist.

    In reality, Wacko killed Wacko. Get the story straight, CNN.

      @another doctor please tell me this, what is it that compels you to disrespect another person? did you personally know michael? is there a reason to call him other than his given name? have you verified your assumptions of him? what is it in you that causes you to see ugliness where so many others see godliness? did you ever stop to say, here is a subject of interest let me investigate? i ask because i can tell that every single person stilll bashing michael is going solely on what the media put out there or they don't really care what the truth is. the media is merely part of the whole.are you aware that a crucial piece of information was kept from the public because it would infringe on the accusers right to PRIVACY and should have halted the trial (monetary motive)? that's a laugh or should i say, justice? what is wrong here? tell me one thing that you witnessed wacky about mr jackson. the more i stay the harder it becomes to say this,but here it is anyway love

    I do not know where you MJ bashers come from, but God will judge you for slandering an innocent man. Don’t think God is not watching what you do and what you write. You think you have total anonymity, but not with God, you don’t. Michael Jackson endured 2nd and 3rd degree burns to his head, plus lupus & vitiligo (which are autoimmune diseases). Plus he had to endure the horrible slander against him. He had horrible pain in his soul. It is a miracle that MJ lasted as long as he did. If MJ took painkillers it was because he was in pain, you morons. What do you expect him to do??? Are you insane? MJ had to die at the hands of another to exit this world. He was very strong to endure what he did in his life. Conrad Murray was being paid an enormous amount of money to be MJ’s private physician. And what did Murray do? He abandoned MJ to talk 90 minutes on the phone on the day MJ died. He was supposed to be monitoring MJ, to protect his life. Even if MJ “drank” propophol, Murray is still guilty, because Murray was supposed to be with MJ at all times when MJ was being treated. Stop bashing MJ. He was a beautiful, beautiful loving person. And God loves MJ very much, because MJ was His child, and MJ is with God in heaven. I suggest you MJ bashers give some thought to where you might end up after you exit this world. All I can say to you bashers is repent. And I ain’t kidding.

    hey phillip... We could care less about b.p. Or the enviroment... Get it? Nor are we interested in making you a c.n.n. Staffer to lecture us about what other countries will do to eliminate the invasions after sucking the west dry. Basically phillip you your friends are going to need those low wage jobs youve been handing out for decades. Mike is well loved by the same countries who no longer need assange anarchy..

    Nobody made him take the drugs, his family just keeps pushing and pushing until they find someone to blame for no other reason than to ease thier own mind. They knew he was taking drugs, they are just as guilty. Maybe they can sleep if they get the doctor locked u
