Conrad Murray has sued the state of Texas in an effort to get his medical license back after being released from jail earlier this week for his conviction in the involuntary manslaughter death of Michael Jackson — but RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned that even if the disgraced former cardiologist is successful in legal efforts to have his medical license reinstated, the convicted felon won’t be able to obtain medical malpractice insurance which is needed to practice medicine.
“Conrad Murray’s medical malpractice insurance was revoked as soon as he was convicted of the involuntary manslaughter death of Michael Jackson. Murray won’t be able to obtain medical malpractice insurance because no company would cover him. He used horrible judgment in giving propofol to Michael Jackson in a home setting,” a source close to the situation told Radar.
“It doesn’t matter if Conrad had a blemish free record prior to Michael’s death….the facts don’t change, he gave anesthesia to a patient for sleep purposes. So Murray can file all the appeals he wants, and it’s highly unlikely he will be given his medical license back… At the end of the day, he won’t be able to get the necessary medical malpractice insurance.”
Murray was sentenced in 2011 to four years in prison for his involuntary manslaughter conviction in Jackson’s 2009 death from an overdose of propofol. He walks out of the facility having served two years, to the chagrin of the Jackson family.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office will be closely monitoring Murray to make sure he isn’t able to practice medicine.
“If he tries to get a medical license in the U.S. or anywhere around the world, the D.A. will make sure the appropriate officials are aware that he was convicted of killing someone because he used propofol in a house,” a source previously told Radar.
“He is a danger to any potential patients because he lacks proper judgment skills.”
Since being released from jail earlier this week, Murray had his hair dyed from grey to black, and has been lamenting that he isn’t to blame for Jackson’s death.
According to court docs filed by Murray in Texas, he claims he is more than $400,000 in debt and needs his medical license back so he can earn a living.
