UPDATE 3:05 p.m.: Medical Board member and pulmonary specialist Dr. Nader Kamangar testified that anesthesiologists are highly trained specialists and are present in hospitals any time that propofol is administered. Jackson needed constant monitoring, Kamangar said, and Murray was in need of beside assistance. He said that he couldn't conceive of a "reasonable or prudent" doctor giving a patient propofol in his home.
UPDATE 2:56 p.m.: Steinberg testified that Murray "did not act like a board-certified physician" during his time working with Jackson. During cross, Michael Flanagan asked the cardiologist why he "assumed" that Murray caused Jackson's death. "I didn't assume anything," Steinberg replied. "Those are the facts." On redirect, Steinberg agreed with Deputy District Attorney David Walgren that, even if Jackson had dosed himself with propofol, Murray would still be liable for his death.
