Sources connected with the Texas Medical Board and the Nevada State Board of Medical Examinerstell TMZ they are weighing their options regarding the suspension of Murray’s medical license.
Murray’s California medical license was suspended yesterday as a condition of bail in his ongoing Michael Jackson manslaughter case.
But we’re told … because a judge suspended Murray’s license and not the California Medical Board — TX and NV don’t feel compelled to follow suit and issue suspensions in their states.
We’re told Murray’s attorney, Charles Peckham, has been in talks with the NV med board and is making contact with TX as well — but no word on when a final decision will be made.
The Medical Board of California has asked the court twice before to yank Murray’s license, to no avail. But minutes after ordering Murray to stand trial, Judge Pastor granted the request.
It’s a devastating blow to Murray, because he needs to practice to make enough money to pay his legal team. Murray’s team believes the move is designed to take away his right to defend himself in the manslaughter trial.
