We don't know who in their right mind would want his services, but he can still be a doctor in the eyes of the law.
This afternoon, a judge ruled in favor of allowing Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's physician at the time of death, to continue to practice medicine.
Even though this is the fourth time the office of California's attorney general has tried to get Conrad suspended, the judge refused to revoke the decision made by the last judge to hear the case:
"I don't have ability to revisit the actions of one of my colleagues. I do not have jurisdiction to revisit this matter. It doesn't have anything to do with how I feel or what I think. It has to do with the law and this court's ability to follow the law."
Don't get too pissed though. He still has to stand trial for the criminal charges against him. His medical license won't do him any good behind bars!
Just think of it that way!

While the California State Medical Board is pointing the finger at Dr. Conrad Murray for Michael Jackson's death, his father, Joe Jackson, is accusing AEG of the crime.
Man is heartless, but not stupid. Who do you think has more money to suck out of???
Joe Jackson's lawyer is prepared to file two complaints with government agencies claiming that the promoters at AEG abused MJ to his death.
The first complaint will go right into the hands of the United States Attorney General. Jackson's attorney will allege that AEG violated the Americans with Disabilities Act, claiming that the promoters knew MJ had a drug problem but ignored it and kept him on a "grueling and dangerous work schedule to prepare for the London concerts."
The second complaint will go through the California Medical Board, claiming that AEG signed off on unauthorized medical practices (Oh hey Dr. Conrad Murray) that also led to MJ's demise.
Things are only going to get messier and dirtier from here. We just wish we could say Joe was going through all this trouble in memory of his son, not for the publicity and $$$.

There is a target on his back and the Cali Medical Board is ready to take aim!
Representatives from the board have asked a judge to order Dr. Conrad Murray to stop practicing medicine immediately to "protect California's citizens."
Last week, the Board filed papers claiming that the current restrictions on Conrad's medical practices, including administering "deep anesthetics", were "insufficient under the circumstances of this defendant's behavior."
You know, how he assisted in the death of a musical legend!
In the docs, the Board states, "It is not just his 'prescribing' practices that are in question, but his fundamental judgment and skill as a physician." Therefore, a cease and desist order was requested to stop Conrad from practicing medicine until his criminal trial regarding Michael Jackson's death reaches a conclusion.
We agree this should happen, but at this point, is it really necessary? What patient in their right mind is still carrying this man as their primary physician???
