Whatever Conrad Murray is selling, California isn't buying.

State Attorney General Jerry Brown wants to prevent the cardiologist, who's charged with involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson's death, from practicing medicine in California while he's the subject of a criminal case.

Brown's office filed the paperwork to restrict the cardiologist's license Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court on behalf of the California Medical Board.

"Murray administered a lethal dose of propofol, as well as other drugs to Michael Jackson," Brown stated in the motion. "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."

The latest slam against Murray, who has offices in Houston and Las Vegas, comes a day after it was learned that a Jackson employee told investigators that Murray stopped resuscitation efforts when the singer was dying to gather up drug vials, and then directed him to stash them in a bag.


Mindboggling stuff. Let's take a step back and look at the Big Picture.
