The family's sour mood was no doubt due to Judge Michael Pastor's ruling not to take away Murray's medical license.

As previously reported, Judge Pastor refused to overturn the decision made by the last judge to hear the case, telling the court, "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," Pastor said.

Conrad Murray

The Monday hearing in Los Angeles was the fourth time the office of California's attorney general, on behalf of the state's medical board, attempted to suspend Murray's medical license. Murray is also facing criminal charges in the death of Jackson.

Murray's defense said he has been in "absolute compliance" with the restrictions already placed on him (not using propofol and not practicing in California). They later brought up the recent incident of Murray helping a sick passenger during a flight as an example of Murray's continued use as a physician.

The prosecution countered saying Murray's actions were "egregious" and therefore the medical board does not want him using medical tools to continue practicing on the public.
