According to documents filed with the court, the Medical Board of California believes Murray showed, “utter disregard for the care and well-being of the persons entrusted to his care” — namely, Michael Jackson.
The Board wants the judge to step in because it takes the Medical Board a long time to yank a doctor’s license.
In the end, the judge ordered Dr. Murray not to administer anesthetics, including Propofol.
The judge will hear the Medical Board’s request to suspend Dr. Murray’s license as a bail condition in a few weeks.
