Dr. Conrad Murray‘s defense attorney Ed Chernoff is slamming California Attorney General Jerry Brown, who filed legal papers on Tuesday on behalf of the California Medical Board to restrict Michael Jackson’s former personal physician from practicing medicine in the state of California.
“This exact issue was addressed two months ago in a California Superior Court, at that time the judge declined to prohibit Dr. Murray from practicing medicine in California,” Chernoff exclusively told RadarOnline.com. “Nothing has happened in the last two months to change that decision; including the fact that Dr. Murray has no office in the state of California, and has seen no patients there. It is disingenuous for the attorney general to now bring this up just because Dr. Murray is coming to court April 5.”
Brown — who is running for governor in California — said in court docs that Murray “administered a lethal dose of propofol, as well as other drugs to Michael Jackson. We will argue in court that Murray was reckless in giving Jackson such a dangerous drug and has demonstrated a serious lack of judgment that should prohibit him from practicing medicine.”
Brown is asking that Dr. Murray be prohibited from practicing medicine in California until the criminal proceedings have been completed.
Murray’s next court appearance is slated for April 5.
