Judge Rules Michael Jackson's Doctor Can Keep Medical License
A judge in Los Angeles today ruled Dr. Conrad Murray, accused of involuntary manslaughter in the death of Michael Jackson, can keep his California medical license. The California Medical Board had asked the court to revoke it, saying he was a public threat. Murray's lawyers pointed out no evidence has yet been presented in court. Today, the judge hearing the request said the matter had previously been ruled on by another judge and he had no authority to rule differently.
The preliminary hearing is now set for August 23. Dr. Murray practices in Nevada and Texas. ABC News reports:
Murray gained a much-needed dose of good press last month when helped revive a woman who became unconscious on a US Airways flight from Houston to Phoenix.
June 25 will be the first anniversary of Jackson's death.
