Physician convicted in Michael Jackson death seeks to reinstate Texas medical license

Dr. Conrad Murray, the physician convicted in the death of pop icon Michael Jackson, is seeking to reinstate his medical license in Texas, alleging the state medical board prematurely revoked his permit to practice.

Murray argues the board went against laws in California that say a defendant must exhaust all of his appeals before his privileges can be taken away, according to a petition filed this week in Travis County district court. The court papers were filed three days before his Oct. 28 release from Los Angeles County Jail on a felony conviction of involuntary manslaughter.

The revocation of his license in Texas now opens him to the risk of also losing his license in the state of California, which he says would cause him “irreparable harm” as he has four dependents and no ability to make income, the records state. In a court declaration, he says he owes more than $400,000 in debts.

“Effectively, the Texas Medical Board has said to California, ‘Your laws don’t matter,’” said Houston lawyer Charles Peckham, who has represented Murray on the issue since November 2009. “It has resulted in an improper and illegal domino effect based on that fact that (the board) is disregarding the United States Constitution.”

1. That doesn't sound like a great idea

I'm hoping the answer is "no".
