    Народът срещу Д- р Конрад Мъри - 27. 09.2011 - Ден 1

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - The trial of the doctor charged in Michael Jackson's death opens Tuesday with a bit of star power and the one thing the King of Pop enjoyed throughout his life - a worldwide audience.
    The case will enter a crucial final act in a packed Los Angeles courtroom with opening statements and the start of testimony. Jackson's family, including his parents and many of his siblings, are expected to be present as dozens of reporters cover the case. Proceedings also will be televised and broadcast online.
    While much is known about Jackson's June 2009 death, the trial will reveal new information and provide a detailed record of the singer's final hours. Dr. Conrad Murray's trial is expected to be the first time that the public hears - in the defendant's own words - his account of what happened in the bedroom of Jackson's rented mansion.
    By Monday evening, 15 satellite trucks and news vans were parked within a block of the courthouse.
    Prosecutors plan to call the pop superstar's friend and choreographer, Kenny Ortega, as their first witness in the case.
    During the next five weeks, prosecutors will rely on Ortega and other witnesses to detail Jackson's final days and hours and explain to a jury of seven men and five women exactly how the King of Pop died. Defense attorneys for Dr. Conrad Murray, who faces four years in prison and the loss of his medical license if convicted of involuntary manslaughter, hope to poke holes in the prosecution's case and present jurors with their own theory that the singer was culpable for his own death.
    Ortega testified at a hearing earlier this year that Murray warned him not to try to act as Jackson's physician or psychiatrist after Ortega sent the singer home from rehearsals for his final concerts because he appeared to be sick. He is also likely the best witness to walk jurors through footage of Jackson's final rehearsals that were used for the film "This Is It," which will be played in part for jurors. Ortega served as choreographer for the aborted shows and director of the theatrical film.
    For most of the jury, it will be their first exposure to the footage. Only two indicated on questionnaires filled out before the trial that they had seen any portion of "This Is It."
    Prosecutors plan to play a recording of the physician's interview with police conducted two days after Jackson's death, when he revealed that he had been giving the entertainer the anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid. The disclosure led to Murray being charged in February 2010 with involuntary manslaughter and nearly 20 months of legal wrangling over how the trial will be conducted.
    Witnesses' recollections and conclusions about the events will be challenged to a far greater extent than they were during a preliminary hearing earlier this year that resulted in a judge ruling there was enough evidence for Murray to stand trial. Defense attorneys did not present a case or make an opening statement during that hearing, but lead defense attorney Ed Chernoff is expected to lay out Murray's side to jurors on Tuesday.
    Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor has limited what Murray's lawyers can say about Jackson's history with drugs and his financial troubles. Prosecutors are similarly prohibited from mentioning some of the messy details of the doctor's personal life, including his sizeable debts and that he had several mistresses.
    If prosecutors follow the same script they employed during Murray's preliminary hearing, the early part of the case will likely move in chronological order beginning with Jackson's final days and then moving into his final hours. After the singer's security guards, paramedics and emergency room doctors take the stand, the case will then move into more forensic and scientific territory.
    Much of that testimony will focus on propofol, which is normally administered in hospital settings. Authorities contend Murray administered a lethal dose of the drug along with other sedatives, and lacked the proper lifesaving equipment to revive Jackson.
    Defense attorneys will present an alternate theory - that Jackson ingested or somehow gave himself the fatal dose.
    After weeks of testimony, dozens of witnesses and final arguments, the jury will have its say.

    Michael Jackson's former doctor, Conrad Murray, expected to claim singer addict at defense trial

    -------------------------

    Transcript of prosecution's Michael Jackson recording

    During his opening statement, prosecutor David Walgren played part of an audio recording of Michael Jackson discussing his upcoming "This Is It" tour.

    Walgren says Jackson was “highly under the influence of unknown agents” when Murray made the recording on his iPhone on May 10, 2009.

    Here is a transcript of the recording:
    “We have to be phenomenal. When people leave this show, when people leave my show, I want them to say, “I’ve never seen anything like this in my life. Go. Go. I’ve never seen nothing like this. Go. It’s amazing. He’s the greatest entertainer in the world. I’m taking that money, a million children, children’s hospital, the biggest in the world, Michael Jackson’s Children’s Hospital.”

    Walgren says there is more on the recording, and promises the entire thing will be played later in the trial.

    Встъпителната пледоария на защита все още не е приключила, но става напълно ясно как ще развиват защита си. Ще трябва да чуем много неприятни неща, които ше целят да унищожат името на Майкъл. Ще се опитат да ни вменят как той е бил един нещастен човек, който се е тъпчел с лекарства. Никога не забравяйте обаче, че истината има две страни и че Майкъл беше жертва.

    Имейла на Кени Ортега до Ренди Филипс. Звучи наистина страшно.

    Randy

    I will do whatever I can to be of help with this situation. If you need me to come to the house, just give me a call in the morning. My concern is now that we've brought the doctor into the fold and have played the tough love, now or never card is that the artist may be unable to rise to the occasion due to real emotional stuff. He appeared quite weak and fatigued this evening. He had a terrible case of the chills, was trembling, rambling and obsessing. Everything in me says he should be psychologically evaluated. If we have any chance at all to get him back in the light. It's going to take a strong therapist to help him through this as well as immediate physical nurturing. I was told by our chereographer that during the artists costume fitting with his designer tonight they noticed he's lost more weight. As far as i can tell there is no one taking care responsibility (caring for) for him on a daily basis. Where was his assistant tonight? Tonight I was feeding him, wrapping him in blankets to warm his chills, massaging his feet to calm him and calling his doctor. There were four security guards outside his door, but no one offering him a cup of hot tea. Finally it's important for everyone to know , I believe that he really wants this. I twould shatter him, Break his heart if we pulled the plug. He's terribly frightened it's all going to go away. He asked me repeatedly tonight if i was going to leave him. H e was practically begging for my confidence. It broke my heart. H e was like a lost boy. There still may be a chance he can rise to the occasion if we get him the help he needs

    Sincerely,
    Kenny

    “Today has been very distressing for all of us, and I’d like to thank you for your prayers at this horrible time. I would also like to remind some in the media that the voice recording of Michael does not show/prove he was “an addict” — and this leap to agree with the defense is unfair and inaccurate. The prosecution said my brother “was under the influence of UNKNOWN agents” at the time of that recording by Murray. That some people, Jane Valez Mitchell HLN and Ted Rwlands CNN, make statements saying this shows my brother to be “a drug addict” is not what was said in court re that recording. Events are upsetting enough without correspondents adding their own interpretation (or back-dating events to 1993). No-one can rule out the prospect that Michael was groggy because of something administered to make him relax/sleep. That does not make him an addict. I would also add that Murray was by his side “observing” as well as recording so it can have nothing to do with drug depdency because Murrays case is that he was unaware of any drug dependency. One more reason why “addict” is a leap to assumption in these circumstances. Some networks need to make this distinction clear and correct this imbalance. Bottom line: Michael did not kill Michael.”

    Само добавям показанията на Ортега систематизирани:
    *Ortega says he was confronted by Murray during a meeting at Michael's home on June 20th. Murray told him he was upset Ortega didn't let him rehearse, berating him for acting like a doctor (video below).
    * Ortega says on June 23, barely 4 days after Michael was sick, he came to rehearsals full of energy. Ortega said "it was a different Michael."
    * On June 25th, Ortega got a phone call from AEG Live Co-CEO Paul Gongaware saying an ambulance had taken Michael to the hospital. Paul called later and told Ortega, "we lost him."
    * During cross examination, Ortega told defense attorney Ed Chernoff, Murray was in charge of Michael's schedule leading up to his death.
    * When asked whether he thought Michael was abusing drugs, Ortega said yes.
    * Ortega said right before June 19th, Michael "went missing for about a week."
    * Ortega stepped down subject to recall.

    Благодаря за инфото, момичета! И да, аз независимо от всичко тези дни ще остана на позицията на Джърмейн: "Michael did not kill Michael.” Това е.
    Имейла наистина къса сърцето. Колко много е искал да направи това шоу! Даде си живота заради него.

    The trial of Michael Jackson's doctor: Live Report

    (AFP) – 14 hours ago

    LOS ANGELES — 1630/2330 GMT: With testimony concluded for the day, Agence France-Presse is closing this Live Report.

    1617/2317 GMT: The trial was adjourned for the day, set to resume at 8:45 am (1545 GMT) Wednesday.

    1614/2314 GMT: Brazil asks Gongaware about a meeting at Jackson's house in early June 2009 with Jackson, Ortega, Phillips and Murray.

    "The meeting was to get Michael fully engaged."

    He describes the tone of the meeting as "great."

    "Michael was not at all defensive," Gongaware tells the court. The meeting was about how to get "everything he (Jackson) needs to get to where he wants to be. His health, eating habits, rehearsal habits, his engagement with the whole process."

    The witness adds that Murray was "very engaged" at the meeting.

    1613/2313 GMT: As a result of Jackson's request, Gongaware contacted Murray, who wanted to the job, but he demanded $5 million a year.

    Gongaware's response to the request was "no way," because Jackson "could not afford it."

    Gongaware says he then ended negotiations with Murray, but Jackson was insistent and told Gongaware to offer Murray $150,000 a month.

    Murray accepted once he knew the offer came directly from Jackson, Gongaware tells the court. Murray told Gongaware not to worry about the fact he was not licensed in Great Britain, but added that he would need housing in London.

    1610/2310 GMT: Gongaware describes a meeting at which Jackson arrived late because he had been at an appointment with his doctor, "Dr Klein."

    He says at this meeting Jackson was "a little bit off, his speech was slightly slurred and he was a little slower than I knew him to be."

    Jackson told Gongaware that he wanted to hire Murray to be his personal physician for the tour.

    Gongaware says he told Jackson he didn't know Murray and would rather hire a doctor in London where they were going. Jackson's response was to point to his body and say, "This is the machine... we have to take care of the machine."

    "This is what I want," Jackson told Gongaware. "I want Dr Murray."

    1603/2303 GMT: Gongaware says he was present at rehearsals at Center Stages in Burbank and describes Jackson as "excited. He wanted to work."

    Brazil asks, "Did he seem happy?" Gongaware says Jackson did. The singer was also enthusiastic at other rehearsals, the witness says.

    1550/2250 GMT: Initially AEG Live contracted 31 shows at London's O2 arena for the tour, Gongaware tells the court.

    Asked about the number of shows, Gongaware says it was set at 31 because Prince, the artist, had done 21 shows at the arena and Jackson wanted to do 10 more.

    Brazil asks about the public response when the first 10 shows were announced. "Blew out. Sold out instantly," Gongaware says. "As we put shows up they sold out instantly."

    He also says that after 50 shows sold out, there was still 250,000 people waiting to get tickets.

    1546/2244 GMT: Paul Gongaware is sworn in.

    Deputy District Attorney Deborah Brazil asks Gongaware about his job. He says that as co-ceo of AEG Live Concerts West, he produces and promotes concert tours, something he has been doing for 35 years.

    He worked with Jackson on previous tours and was the producer and promoter of the upcoming "This Is It" tour, he tells the court.

    He says Jackson appeared "totally engaged" and excited about the tour.

    1538/2238 GMT: The cross-examination of Ortega finishes and the prosecution calls Paul Gongaware, who worked for Jackson?s concert promoter, AEG Live.

    1528/2228: Murray's lawyer asks if Jackson was intimately involved in all parts of the show -- the choreography, the songs.

    Chernoff: He was the boss?

    Ortega: Yes.

    Chernoff: It was his show?

    Ortega: Yes.

    Asked about the rehearsal where Ortega became alarmed about Jackson's state, the choreographer agrees Jackson's condition scared him. Chernoff asks if he ever thought Jackson might be on drugs. Ortega says yes, he did.

    1527/2227 GMT: Chernoff asks Ortega if he was fighting with Murray during the June 20 meeting. Ortega says no. But he says that "what Dr Murray was saying to me was not exactly what had occurred."

    Ortega is asked if he remembers telling Karen Faye, Jackson's makeup artist, "not to placate Michael Jackson." He says he did not. Chernoff asks if Ortega would have been personally impacted if Jackson had been unable to perform.

    It would have affected everyone, Ortega replies. "It would have made it impossible for me to do my job."

    1521/2221 GMT: The defense gets a chance to question Ortega, and the tone is quite different.

    During cross-examination, Chernoff Ortega if he knew why Jackson wasn't showing up to rehearsals. Ortega said his email to the producers was based on "real concerns" that they would not make the "goals of the tour."

    Asked what the impact of canceling the tour would be on Jackson, Ortega says: "Creatively he would have been devastated. He really wanted to do this tour... Professionally, I'm sure it would have not been a good thing."

    1513/2213 GMT: Prosecutors show another video, this one of Jackson's last ever performance, a rehearsal of Earth Song on June 24 at the Staples Center.

    Jackson, in a black jacket, moves about the stage as he sings, at one point kicking up his knee in time to the music.

    Ortega tells the court Jackson stepped off the stage and watched the next part of the rehearsal with him so Jackson could observe the lighting.

    "In your conversations with Michael, did you and Michael discuss professional plans beyond this tour?" Walgren asks. Ortega says the singer did. "Michael hoped that after the London dates that he would be able to take 'This is It' out into the world, perhaps even into the United States, and after that, to make movies."

    The prosecution finishes it questioning of Ortega.

    1506/2206 GMT: Testimony resumes with prosecution showing footage of Jackson rehearsing the song "The Way You Make Me Feel" on June 23, two days before Jackson's death.

    The singer moves easily about the stage and dances in sync with his back-up dancers, who Ortega says are aged between 18 and 24.

    Ortega agrees the video reflects Jackson's demeanor from that day.

    1446/2146 GMT: The trial pauses for a 15-minute break.

    1445/2145 GMT: During a rehearsal on June 24, the day before Jackson's death, after two successful days of rehearsing, Jackson asked Ortega if he was happy, the choreographer says.

    Ortega said he was happy and asked the singer if he was happy. Jackson told Ortega he was "very happy" and felt like they were realizing their dream, Ortega tells the court.

    They also discussed an illusion for the show Jackson was "excited" about, Ortega says.

    "Michael was very happy... I told him that I loved him, he told me that he loved me more." Jackson gave him a hug and they parted.

    1443/2143 GMT: At rehearsals on June 23, Jackson entered full of enthusiasm, Ortega says. "He was a different Michael."

    The next day he was the same, "A full participant in both rehearsals and other areas of production."

    1440/2140 GMT: Ortega says he was asked to attend a meeting at Jackson's house about the singer's condition on June 20.

    Ortega says Murray confronted him at the meeting and was upset that Jackson had been prevented from rehearsing the previous night.

    The choreographer says Murray told him to stop trying to be an amateur doctor and psychologist and that Jackson was physically and emotionally capable of handling all his responsiblities for the show."

    Ortega says his response to this was shock, "because Michael did not appear to me to be physically or emotionally stable."

    Jackson himself then insisted he was capable of doing the shows, assured Ortega he was fine and hugged him, Ortega tells the court.

    1434/2134 GMT: Ortega is asked about an email he sent expressing his concerns about Jackson's condition in the wake of the June 19 rehearsal.

    In the email, shown to the court, Ortega wrote that he feared the singer needed urgent treatment.

    Jackson was "trembling, rambling and obsessing" and needed to psychologically evaluated and receive help from a "strong therapist" if he was going to make the tour.

    The email also noted the singer had lost weight and questioned who was taking care of him.

    Ortega wrote he fed and wrapped Jackson in blankets to warm his chills. Ortega wrote that after bringing Murray "into the fold" and using a "tough love" approach to get Jackson to attend rehearsals, Jackson might be unable to "rise to the occasion due to real emotional stuff."

    In the email, Ortega said Jackson desperately wanted the tour to go ahead., but that he was like a "lost boy."

    1425/2125 GMT: Ortega says he first met Murray at Jackson's house in April or May 2009.

    The doctor would attend the rehearsals on a "very limited basis."

    In mid to late June 2009, there were several days when Jackson did not show up for rehearsals, Ortega says.

    "It became this continued absence and I was only told that it was 'scheduling.'"

    But Jackson did attend a rehersal on Friday June 19, 2009, however, his behavior concerned Ortega.

    Ortega describes Jackson as "chilled, lost and a little incoherent. I did feel that he was not well at all."

    Jackson wanted to sit with Ortega and just watch the rehearsal.

    "He just seemed, he wasn't there like he...like there was something wrong." Ortega says he had never previously seen Jackson in that state.

    1414/2114 GMT: Ortega describes the "This Is It" tour as "a big arena production" with a 3D movie screen, which had been Jackson's idea.

    Rehearsals would typically start in the late afternoon or evening and last for five to seven hours.

    1407/2107 GMT: Ortega tells the court that Jackson was "very excited" when he called to ask him to work on the "This Is It" tour.

    Ortega was to be co-creator and co-director along with Jackson, he says. They began working on together on the tour in mid-April 2009, at first seeing each other three to four days a week and later, five days a week.

    1402/2102 GMT: Ortega describes his job as a film and television director and stage choreographer and says he has been working in the field since the 1970s.

    He says he first met Jackson in 1990 and worked on several of the pop star's productions.

    Ortega describes creating shows with Jackson as "extremely creative, enjoyable, fun, inspirational."

    "Michael and I would meet and begin at the beginning and have an entire creative process sculpting out the ideas."

    He said Jackson did the choreography himself or worked with other choreographers to create the dances.

    1359/2059 GMT: Choreographer Kenneth Ortega takes the stand and is sworn in.

    1356/2056 GMT: Chernoff says the levels of lorazepam found in Jackson's stomach was four times greater than that found in his blood which indicated he had taken up to 8 pills on his own without his doctor's permission or knowledge.

    He then "self-administered an additional dose of propofol and it killed him like that, there was no way to save him."

    His death was a tragedy, Chernoff says, but Murray is not responsible. He urges the jury acquit him, saying Murray is "not perfect... but in this criminal court, we believe he is not guilty."

    1350/2050 GMT: Chernoff, continuing his assertion that Jackson administered the lethal dose of propofol himself, tells the jury that 25 mg of propofol would "dissipate in ten minutes."

    He says the amount found in Jackson's body was consistent with major invasive surgery, an amount larger than 100 mgs.

    The defense lawyer says his witness, Dr White, would testify that "in his expert opinion, Dr Murray could not have killed Michael Jackson, he could not be responsible for this death. All the amounts Dr Murray gave were not capable of causing that death."

    "The science will prove there had to have been more propofol delivered to Michael Jackson when Dr Murray left the room."

    1344/2044 GMT: The judge and jury are back from their lunch break and Chernoff resumes the defense's opening statement.

    After he finishes, the prosecution is expected to call as its first witness, Kenny Ortega, the choreographer who was the co-creator and co-director of the "This Is It" comeback tour Jackson was working on when he died.

    1202/1902 GMT: The trial breaks for its noon recess. The hearing will resume at 1:30 pm.

    1159/1859 GMT: Chernoff says he wants the jury to know exactly what propofol is and what it isn't.

    Dr Paul White, an expert in propofol, will say propofol is normally used as an intravenous drug.

    "It is not a poison, it has one job to do and that is to put people to sleep," Chernoff says. "What Dr White will tell you is this: when you perform invasive surgery and you use the amount of propofol necessary, propofol is both powerful and dangerous."

    For someone of Jackson's size, 150 lbs, for invasive surgery, they would require more than 130 mg. That amount would cause a "sincere risk" that the patient would not wake up. But with the25 mg Murray says he gave Jackson, there was no risk of breathing difficulties or cardiac problems.

    1152/1852 GMT: On the day he died, Jackson told Murray around 10:40 am, after he hadn't slept for 10 hours, that if he didn't get some sleep he wouldn't be able to complete his rehearsal and he would disappoint his fans.

    He would fail if he did not get some propofol, Chernoff says.

    Murray agreed to give him just a 25 mg injection of propofol mixed with lidocaine. Murray told investigators that when he gave this to Jackson the singer went to sleep. He checked his pulse and blood oxygen and both were normal. He left only when he felt comfortable, Chernoff insisits.

    "By the time that Dr Murray left that room there was zero propofol in his (Jackson's) system."

    1147/1847 GMT: Chernoff says the defense will present evidence about Jackson's treatments from his dermatologist, Dr Arnold Klein, who he would sometimes visit three or four times a week.

    At each appointment, Jackson would receive a shot of demerol, (a painkiller).

    "Dr Arnold Klein addicted Michael Jackson to demerol," Chernoff told the jury. And one of the most "insidious" side effects of demerol is "an inability to sleep, and for some paitents it's an absolute inability."

    The jury would hear from a doctor who would say that the insomnia Jackson was suffering was from the demerol withdrawal, Chernoff said.

    1144/1844 GMT: Chernoff tells the jury Jackson did not die because of Murray's treatment but because "Dr Murray stopped" giving Jackson the drugs he demanded.

    1142/1842 GMT: Chernoff insists Murray was actually trying to wean Jackson off propofol at the time of the singer's death.

    He says Murray had refused to give propofol to Jackson on the day he died because he was on the third day of a weaning process that appeared to be working.

    When Jackson began begging for propofol, Murray could not understand why he wasn't sleeping and searched his bed to see if the medicine was leaking.

    1135/1835 GMT: Chernoff says that when Murray began working as Jackson's doctor, the singer told Murray he could only sleep if he was on propofol and had always done this on tour.

    Jackson's nickname for the drug was "his milk." Jackson told Murray he had to give it with lidocaine, which Jackson called, "anti-burn" to stop it from burning.

    Chernoff says Murray was concerned about the powerful drug and believed that Jackson was going to use it irrespective of Murray, so Murray agreed to provide the singer with propofol.

    1131/1831 GMT: Chernoff describes Murray as cooperative with police, answering questions without consulting with his lawyers.

    "Dr Murray said to these police offices, 'I don't know what killed Michael Jackson. I want to know also.'"

    1127/1827 GMT: Murray had no idea of the extent of Jackson's sleep problems when he began treating him, Chernoff says.

    Jackson did not suffer from insomnia but "an absolute, total and thorough inability to sleep. Not for minutes, not for hours -- but for days."

    1125/1825 GMT: Chernoff says that if Murray's patients couldn't pay, he wouldn't charge them.

    "He would buy prescriptions for patients," the defense says.

    1121/1821 GMT: Murray wipes away tears as Chernoff describes the doctor and Jackson as "friends first."

    The lawyer says the jury would "learn about who Murray really is," not just "greedy" and out for money as the prosecution alleges.

    "Dr Murray is no celebrity doctor. He is a cardiologist. He literally saves lives. That's who he is."

    1115/1815 GMT: Murray's lawyer says Jackson, who was frustrated because he could not sleep and frustrated because his doctor refused to give him a drug that he wanted, "did an act that caused his own death."

    Chernoff says Jackson swallowed 8 2mg lorazepam pills, which he called enough to put "six of you to sleep," while Murray was not around.

    With the propofol, Jackson "created a perfect storm in his body that killed him instantly."

    "He died so fast he did not even have time to close his eyes."

    1110/1810 GMT: Chernoff puts up on a poster board outlining the questions the defense is asking.

    The first question is "How did Micheal Jackson get to this point?" with Jackson's first name, Michael, misspelled.

    1107/1807 GMT: Chernoff insists Jackson caused his own death by overdosing against Murray's advice.

    1100/1800 GMT: The judge and jury return to the courtroom and Murray's lawyer, Edward Chernoff, begins his opening statement.

    1045/1745 GMT: Outside the court, Barry Friedberg, a 62-year-old anesthesiologist, accuses Murray of being "a sociopath" who was not adaquetely monitoring Jackson.

    "Leaving Jackson, who desperately wanted to sleep and was desperately asking for propofol, is like leaving a pyromaniac in a room packed with matches," Friedberg says.

    1042/1042 GMT: The prosecution has finished its opening statement and the court is taking a break.

    The trial is set to resume shortly with the opening statement from the defense.

    1041/1741 GMT: "Conrad Murray abandoned Michael when he needed help," the state insists.

    "The evidence will show that Conrad Murray figuratively and literally abandoned Michael Jackson on June 25, 2009," Walgren says.

    "He left this vulnerable man filled with valium, midazolam, lorazepam and propofol with no medical monitoring equipment or resuscitation equipment. He left him there to fend for himself. It not only violates every standard of care but decency from one human being to another."

    1032/1732 GMT: Walgren outlines more ways that Murray's use of propofol was inappropriate, including a lack of resuscitative equipment.

    Significantly, Murray did not tell the paramedics about the propofol when they arrived.

    They could not find a pulse on Jackson, but Murray, who as a doctor outranked them, insisted he could.

    He told the paramedics struggling to save Jackson's life that the singer had been given lorazepam, but did not tell them about the anesthetic.

    He made no mention of propofol, neither to the paramedics nor to the doctors at the hospital where Jackson was pronounced dead.

    1023/1723 GMT: Walgren says Murray exhibited a "gross lack of any standard of care" and that medical experts will show that using propofol in Jackson's home represented an extreme violation of the standard of care and gross negligence on Murray's part.

    Proper use of the drug requires constant monitoring of the patient's heart rate, pulse and blood oxygen, Walgren tells the court.

    But the state asserts that Murray was not monitoring Jackson. An oxygen tank found near Jackson's bed was empty. A blood pressure cuff was unused, and Murray's blood oxygen measuring device had no alarm, making it effectively "useless," according to Walgren.

    1018/1718 GMT: Murray told detectives he did not call the paramedics because "to speak to 911 operator would be to neglect him (Jackson)," Walgren says.

    But, the prosecutor adds, Murray did not ask Jackson's assistant to call 911 after he contacted him concerned about the singer's reaction to the drugs he had received.

    1008/1708 GMT: It was Murray's usual practice to administer propofol to Jackson to help him fall asleep, Walgren said.

    On June 25, 2009, Murray was "very busy on the phone," at one point assuring insurers that all press reports and concerns about Michael's health were "fallacious."

    At 11:51 am, Murray was on the phone with his girlfriend, Sade Anding, when she heard commotion in the background and the line went dead. Walgren asserts that this is probably the point at which Murray realized Jackson was dead, but no one called 911 until 12:20 pm, after Murray had instructed a bodyguard to remove vials of drugs and the IV bag from the IV stand by Jackson's bed.

    0953/1653 GMT: Walgren told the court that at a rehearsal in June, Kenny Ortega, the manager of Jackson's proposed This Is It tour, expressed concerns about Jackson who appeared to be trembling, suffering from chills, the cold, and was rambling.

    Murray told Ortega and others that Jackson was "physically and emotionally fine."

    "Don't let it be your concern, I am the doctor," Murray said.

    Days later Jackson was taking part in successful rehearsals at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and looking forward to the tour, the court heard.

    0946/1646 GMT: "We also know that Conrad Murray sought out a pharmacist and made arrangements to purchase very large quantities of propofol on a regular basis."

    Shortly before Jackson's death, Murray had ordered 15.5 liters (4.09 gallons) of the powerful anesthetic, Walgren says.

    0942/1642 GMT: Prosecutors play a dramatic tape of Jackson describing his comeback tour while under the influence of propofol, slurring his words.

    0939/1139 GMT: After treating Jackson's children for minor ailments in Las Vegas in 2006, Murrary was taken on as Jackson's personal doctor.

    He asked for $5 million for a year of medical services, Walgren says. He was instead offered $150,000 a month. The contract was never signed, but Murray was so keen to take the job he quit his medical practice.

    0937/1637 GMT: The prosecutor tells the court that Jackson was excited about a massive comeback tour, which had been set to begin in London.

    He was looking forward to having his three children, Prince, Paris and "Blanket" see him perform.

    0926/1626 GMT: Walgren outlines for the jury how Jackson died in his second floor bedroom of his rented Los Angeles home on June 25, 2009.

    A coroner ruled that the death was a homicide after levels of the anesthetic propofol were found in Jackson's body similar to levels of general anesthesia along with benzodiazepenes.

    Walgren insists the evidence would show that the "acts and omissions of Michael Jackson's personal doctor Conrad Murray directly led to his premature death at the age of 50."

    Murray "repeatedly acted with gross negilience, repeatedly denied appropriate care to his patient Michael Jackson and that is was Dr Murray's repeated incompetent and unskilled acts that led to Michael Jackson's death on June 25 2009."

    0920/1620 GMT: "Michael Jackson literally put his life in the hands of Conrad Murray...Michael Jackson trusted his life to the medical skills of Conrad Murray.

    "The evidence will show that that misplaced trust had far too high a price to pay ... it cost Michael Jackson his life," says Deputy District attorney David Walgren.

    0918/1618 GMT: Proscecutors begin opening statements.

    0915/1615 GMT: Opening statements, which were due to begin at 8:45 local time, have not yet begun.

    Outside the court a group of Jackson supporters "Call for Love" display banners signed by fans from around the world.

    "We have 30 banners here, from Italy, Russia, England, Chile, Africa, from all continents... It's a reminder of how wide his influence is," says radio worker Rita Bosico, 46.

    0905/1605 GMT: CNN reports that Murray was brought into the court via an underground entrance to avoid the crowd outside, but when he reached the 9th floor of the courthouse a woman ran down the hall and lunged at him . She was restrained by police and escorted from the building.

    0900/1600 GMT: Conrad Murray's pastor Lewis Logan tells local news that he spoke to the defendant early today and Murray was "resolute" and felt faith.

    "He sounded very strong on the phone. He was in church on Sunday and we had prayers with him. He is calm and humble about this."

    Logan says Murray was confident the "process would bring out the facts. He wants justice to be done."

    0847/1147 GMT: Someone in the crowd shouts, "Murderer!" as Conrad Murray makes his way into the building.

    0846/1546 GMT: Randy Jackson has also entered the courtroom, so have Tito, Jermaine, eldest sister Rebbie and their parents.

    0842/1542 GMT: A group of Jackson supporters link hands to pray outside the court.

    "Justice for Michael, Jesus is Lord, we shall have victory," they pray. "Vindicate Michael's name and bring the truth out."

    0836/1536 GMT: Jackson's sister Janet has entered the courtroom in a black dress. La Toya also enters, clutching a sunflower.

    0831/1531 GMT: Michael Jackson's family including his parents Katherine and Joe and siblings Jermaine, La Toya and Tito have arrived at the court.

    The crowd chants 'Justice for Michael' as they exit their car and head towards the court entrance.

    Conrad Murray has entered the court.

    0820/1520 GMT: Dozens of of Jackson's fervently loyal supporters are waving placards that read "Justice is overdue for Jackson - can you feel it?" while members of the group Justice4MJ say the manslaughter trial is "ridiculous."

    "He should have been charged with second degree murder," Erin Jacobs says, cofounder of the global association.

    The crowd also includes a smattering of Murray supporters, including his personal assistant Stacey Ruggles, 44. She says she worked with Murray for 16 years and will be a witness at the trial.

    "I was on the phone with him the day Michael Jackson died."

    "We are here to support Michael Jackson AND Conrad Murray," she says. "Michael Jackson's wish for all of us was peace and love and so for Conrad Murray, that created their friendship ... He shouldn't have been charged."

    0814/1514 GMT: Police say there are at least 300 people outside the court, including about 60 lining up for a public draw for only six places available in court for the public.

    0806/1506 GMT: Welcome to AFP's live coverage of the trial of Michael Jackson's personal doctor Conrad Murray, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the 2009 death of the 50-year-old pop legend.

    A crowd of several hundred has gathered outside the Los Angeles courtroom where the highly-anticipated televised hearing gets underway shortly.

    Murray, who was employed as the singer's $150,000-a-month personal physician, is accused of giving the troubled star a lethal dose of the surgical anesthetic propofol and then failing to monitor him as he died from what a coroner labeled "acute propofol intoxication."

    Lawyers for Murray, who has pleaded not guilty, claim the self-styled 'King of Pop,' a chronic insomniac, was so desperate for sleep that he drank the drug, which he called 'milk,' while the doctor wasn't looking.

    The trial will reveal new details about the final days and death of Jackson at his rented mansion in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles on the eve of an ambitious make-or-break comeback bid.

    Murray, 58, faces up to four years in prison if convicted. Trial judge Michael Pastor has barred any mention of Jackson?s high-profile 2005 child molestation case, at which he was acquitted, or the singer?s financial situation. The trial is expected to last five weeks and could include testimony from the singer?s eldest children, Prince Michael, 14, and Paris, 13, as well as Jackson?s siblings and parents.

    Murray Trial Day 1 - September 27 , 2011

    Hearing started approximately 30 minutes late. Judge Pastor explained the reason as traffic and problem with the elevators. Trial started with Judge Pastor explaining jurors the process, breaks , taking notes and what is an opening statement.

    Prosecution Opening Statement

    DA Walgren started his opening statement. He used a presentation to accompany the points he’s making. In the presentation he showed a picture of Michael lying in a gurney - most probably taken at the hospital after revival attempts.

    DA Walgren “Evidence will show that Michael Jackson literally put his life in the hands of Conrad Murray. Michael Jackson trusted his life to medical skills of Conrad Murray. That misplaced trust was a too high of a price to pay.” DA Walgren states that Dr. Murray’s actions led to MJ’s death.



    DA Walgren explains what Michael was doing in months before his death. Walgren mentions that Michael was getting ready for his comeback tour TII, mentions rehearsals and that Michael was living in 100 N Carolwood with his children.

    Walgren mentions that Michael and Dr. Murray met in 2006 in Vegas and maintained contact. At the time Michael Jackson died, Dr. Conrad Murray was not board-certified in any medical specialty. In March 2009 Michael asked Dr. Murray to accompany him on tour. Murray agreed and requested to be paid $5 Million a year. They offered him $150,000 a month. Murray's duties included to perform general medical care, emergency medical care. He would have received $150,000 , airfare to UK and housing. He would have been hired as an independent contractor. At the time Michael died the contract was not signed by Michael or AEG.

    DA Walgren explains Propofol to the jurors. Walgren tells that it's not a sleep agent , it's anesthesia. Walgren goes over good and bad qualities of Propofol and tells the dangers. DA Walgren mentions Murray lied to pharmacists Tim Lopez and told him that he had a clinic and patients in California. Walgren starts listing Murray's Propofol orders and how they were sent to Murray's girlfriend Nicole Alvarez's house.

    DA Walgren plays a part of an audio Murray recorded on is iPhone on May 10. Walgren mentions that Murray was recording Michael who was under influence of a unknown drug. Walgren states that this shows that the Murray knew the effect of his treatment on Michael, yet continued to order Propofol.





    he recording said:

    “We have to be phenomenal. When people leave this show, when people leave my show, I want them to say, “I’ve never seen anything like this in my life.

    "Go. Go. I’ve never seen nothing like this. Go. It’s amazing. He’s the greatest entertainer in the world. I’m taking that money, a million children, children’s hospital, the biggest in the world, Michael Jackson’s Children’s Hospital.”

    Between April 6, 2009, and the time of Michael Jackson's death on June 25, Dr. Conrad Murray ordered enough propofol to give Jackson 1,937 milligrams a day, prosecutor David Walgren told jurors in his opening statement.

    June 19, 2009. Michael was not in good shape. He had chills, he was rambling and trembling. Kenny Ortega put a blanket on him, massaged his feet, fed him chicken and then made him go home early.

    June 20, 2009. There was a meeting about Michael's health. DA Walgren says that Dr. Murray scolded Kenny Ortega. " I'm the doctor not you. You direct the show leave MJ's health to me."

    June 23, June 24, 2009. Michael had good rehearsals. He's fine, strong and optimistic.

    June 25, 2009. Michael comes home around 1 AM. DA Walgren shows pictures of the house, layout, inside the rooms.





    DA Walgren shows a list of Murray's phone calls and emails. Walgren mentions the 11:51 phone call with Sade Anding and tells that 5 minutes into the phone call that Sade Anding heard a commotion and Murray stopped talking to her. DA Walgren says for 11:56 - 11:57 AM ""This is likely the time Conrad Murray first noticed Michael Jackson's lifeless body".

    Walgren says that Dr. Murray called Michael Amir Williams (MAW) at 12:12PM. MAW returned Murray's call at 12:13 PM. Dr. Murray told him to come to house, he didn't ask him to call 911. MAW called Alberto Alvarez and told him to go into the house. When Alberto came into the room Murray told him to collect the vials and saline bag on the IV. 911 was called at 12:20 PM.

    Paramedics arrived at 12:26 PM, they tried their best but Michael was gone. Paramedics asked Murray what he gave to Michael. Murray said Lorazepam and he didn't mention Propofol. Paramedics was on call with UCLA and UCLA wanted to announce Michael death on the scene. Murray wanted Michael to be transferred to UCLA. When they arrived UCLA doctors asked Murray what Michael was taking and what he gave to Michael. Murray told the doctors that Michael was taking Valium and Flomax and he gave Michael Lorazepam. Again Murray does not mention Propofol to the doctors. Michael is announced dead at 2:26 PM at UCLA.

    2 days after Michael's death LAPD interviews Murray. At that time the tox results wasn't back and there was no visible trauma so the detectives did not know the reason of Michael's death. This is the first time that Murray mentions Propofol and tells his version of the events.

    According to Murray all the drugs he gave to Michael did not work. At 10 AM Michael tells Murray that he would cancel the rehearsal and he wouldn't need to get up at 12:00PM. After that Murray decided to give Michael Propofol. Murray claims he gave Michael 25 mg of Propofol. When Michael was lying in bed with all the drugs in his system Murray emails the insurance broker saying that Michael is fine.

    Walgreen discusses issue of standard of care. DA Walgren explains gross negligence to the jurors and gives examples of Murray's actions that account to gross negligence. These are
    - No written standard of care / risks / consent form
    - Not calling 911 (especially when calling 911 is basic common sense)
    - Employee / employer relationship and Murray not working for the best interest of Michael but working for $150,000. He did not use sound medical judgement.
    - Deceived paramedics by not disclosing Propofol
    - Deceived emergency room doctors by not disclosing Propofol

    Murray had legal duty of care to do no harm to Michael Jackson. Murray with his eyes on $150K agreed to provide him massive aounts of propofol with complete disregard to all medical standards. Murray abandoned Michael on June 25. Filled with drugs, no monitoring equipment, no resuscitation equipment, left him all alone. It's clear that Murray abandoned Michael when he needed help.

    Murray Defense Opening Statement

    - Chernoff argues that Michael was frustrated and desperate to sleep and took 8 2 mg Lorazepam pills without Murray’s knowledge. It was an act that caused his own death.

    - Chernoff believes that scientific evidence will show that Michael administered Propofol when Murray left the room and with the Lorazepam in his body it created the perfect storm and killed him instantly. He couldn’t even close his eyes.

    - When Murray found Michael, there was no way to bring him back.

    - 2 questions
    o How did Michael get to this (desperate) point?
    o What happened when Dr. Murray was out of the room?

    - TII would be creating history. It would be a world tour and movies. Michael would earn a lot of money. It was dependent on Michael doing TII shows but he was never able to do this shows. He had a problem that would not be resolved by any determination or talent. He knew he needed help and he went looking for help in Spring 2009.

    - Summer 08 initial negotiations of TII. October 08 meeting. Michael cried at that meeting said he was tired of being a vagabond. January 09 signing the contract. Michael was afraid he wouldn't sell the tickets. It sold quickly. Increase the shows to 50 on 2 conditions: 1 - house for him and his children and 2- Guinness world book of records would be there to record. 50 year old man 50 shows in one arena over 1 million people. This was it for him. He named the tour himself.

    - Murray is not a celebrity doctor. He has 2 practices, he performs angioplasty surgeries. Those require anesthesia. He saves lives. They will bring patients of Murray to testify. Chernoff states that Murray is not greedy and provides service for free.

    - One of MJ's bodyguards knew Murray; he was called to the hotels to look after his children were sick. They would become friends first. Michael would tell him about his childhood, dreams etc. From 2006 to 2008 Murray treated Michael for things like toe fungus, broken foot, checked his heart, his liver. Michael told Murray twice he had anxiety and problems with sleeping. Murray prescribed him sleep medicine but it wasn't effective for Michael.

    - Michael didn't have insomnia. Michael Jackson had an absolute and through inability to sleep, not for minutes, hours. It was for days.

    - June 27 meeting with the police. Defense only selected the location. 9 of the other witnesses also had lawyers. Detective Smith had already spoken to everyone before he spoke to Murray. There was no limitations in regards to questions or time. He answered every question. In that interview Murray said he said to the detectives he didn't know what killed Michael Jackson and he wanted to know as well.

    - In this interview Dr. Murray told detectives about Michael's sleep problems. Michael Jackson told Murray he had inability to sleep and he could only sleep on Propofol and he always slept on Propofol when he was touring. Michael Jackson explained how to give Propofol. Murray told detectives he agreed to give Michael propofol to help him sleep. He said that he was concerned that Michael would use Propofol without him.

    - Murray provided Michael Propofol for 2 months. For 2 months Michael slept, woke up and went to work. Chernoff states that Michael Jackson dies when Murray stopped giving Michael Propofol.

    - Murray told detectives his goal was to find a way for Michael to sleep normally. He says that he said to Michael he can't continue using Propofol, what would happen once his tour over and let him try other sedatives - something else to sleep.

    - Midazolam and Lorazepam was ordered as well as Murray hoped to switch Michael to those sedatives.

    - The day Michael died was 3rd day of wean process from Propofol. On that day the goal was not to give Michael any Propofol, Murray refused to give Propofol and gave Michael Midazolam and Lorazepam.

    - 10 AM Michael started to begging for Propofol. Murray was confused and couldn't understand why Michael wasn't able to sleep as he slept last night. Murray checked under the covers to make sure the medicine he was giving was reaching to Michael's system.

    - Michael compartmentalized his life. Different people in his life didn't know much about other parts of his life. Murray didn't know what Michael did during the day.

    - Klein dermatologist. Michael would visit Klein 3-4 times a week. From medical records he would get Botox etc, and he would receive a shot of Demerol ranging from 100 mg to 300 mg. Sometimes 1000 mg of a week.

    - They would present a witness about addiction. This witness will say that Klein addicted Michael to Demerol and one effect of Demerol addiction or withdrawal is inability to sleep.

    - Murray didn't know about Demerol.

    - Michael received a shot of Demerol on 16th june, attended a rehearsal same day. Attended a rehearsal on June 17th. Missed the June 18th rehearsal and was sick on June 19. Defense expert will explain that he believes this to be Demerol withdrawal.

    - Michael told the result for his insomnia was he was always thinking, creating.

    - Murray told investigators that he knew Michael had to be up at 12 PM and that's why he only gave 25 mg Propofol to Michael around 10 AM. He knew that Michael had Midazolam and Lorazepam in his system. Michael told Murray he needed sleep and he need to do his rehearsal or they would cancel his show. There had been 3 meetings so Murray knew he needed to sleep.

    - Chernoff states that scientific information will show that by the time Murray left the room, there was no Propofol in Michael Jackson's system.

    - Chernoff mentions defense witness Paul White , "father of Propofol". Explains Propofol. Chernoff says that their witness will tell that there was no risk with the amount of Propofol that Murray gave to Michael. White would tell that what Murray gave to Michael could not kill him.

    - Chernoff says that there was no drip so the question becomes how did Michael Jackson get more Propofol. Defense says that they believe Michael gave himself that Propofol.

    - Chernoff says the defense tested Lorazepam levels in Michael's stomach and it was 4 times higher than the levels in his blood. Chernoff say that he believes this could only happen if Michael was swallowing Lorazepam.

    - Defense believes that Michael wanted to sleep and frustrated that he couldn't sleep and his doctor refusing to give him Propofol he swallowed Lorazepam (up to 8 pills) while Murray was outside the room. Murray geva him Propofol unknowingly and then when he's out of the room Michael gave himself another dose of Porpofol.

    - Chernoff states that the events are tragic, but Murray is not guilty and they would ask for an acquittal.

    Kenny Ortega testimony

    - Ortega states he has been a director since the 1980s, a choreographer since the 1970s. He first met MJ in 1990, MJ called him to work on the Dangerous tour. He was a co-creator and director of production, as well as the History tour. For History tour, he supervised choreography, MJ did most of it. Ortega stated he was also responsible for costuming and lighting and the same for the This Is It tour. MJ and Ortega had been in touch for the last few years before MJ died. AEG told Ortega that MJ wanted Ortega for the This Is It tour, then MJ told Ortega himself. Ortega stressed that MJ was excited for This Is It, and that MJ said this is the time to do it.

    - Ortega started working in the middle of April '09 on This Is It. MJ was heavily involved.

    -Ortega states that Michael had several reasons for wanting to tour now. First, Michael's children had taken in interest in his music and his performances, Michael felt the kids would now appreciate live performances. Second, he wanted to do a tour for his fans. Michael was allowing his fans to choose the songs which would be performed on This Is It. Third, Michael felt that his environmental songs, such as Heal the World and Earth Song, were just as important or more important now that when they were written and performed.

    - Preparation for This is It started as Center Stages In Burbank. Ortega, MJ and Travis Payne were conceptualizing the tour. Ortega states at this point, he was meeting with MJ 3 to 4 times a week.

    - Rehearsals began at the Forum in LA in the beginning of June, '09. Michael's children did not attend rehearsals because he wanted them to focus on school. The rehearsals lasted 5-7 hours, from late afternoon until evening. There was stating, tech work, lighting and musical rehearsals done by MJ.

    -Ortega states he met Murray in April or May of '09. MJ introduced Ortega to Murray at his home on Carolwood Drive. Murray came to rehearsal rarely; never at Center Stages, once at the Forum and never at Staples.

    -MJ was not showing up for rehearsals in the middle of June, the last week at the Forum. Ortega was told it was a scheduling problem, and that there was a "continued absence".

    - Friday, June 19, while still at the Forum, Ortega says MJ "wasn't right, wasn't well". He was chilled, appeared "lost and a little incoherent". Ortega states he gave MJ some food, wrapped him in blankets and gave him a heater. Michael, according to Ortega, asked him if he could sit and watch the performance, with Travis Payne filling in for MJ. Ortega agreed. Ortega emphasizes that he'd never seen MJ like that, and that he suggested Michael go home.

    -Ortega is asked about an email that was sent to Randy Phillips at AEG Live on June 21, 09. In the email, Ortega reiterates that Michael was ill, chilled and was sent home. Ortega also states that MJ will need psychological help and lots of nurturing.



    Text of the email

    Randy

    I will do whatever I can to be of help with this situation. If you need me to come to the house, just give me a call in the morning. My concern is now that we've brought the doctor into the fold and have played the tough love, now or never card is that the artist may be unable to rise to the occasion due to real emotional stuff. He appeared quite weak and fatigued this evening. He had a terrible case of the chills, was trembling, rambling and obsessing. Everything in me says he should be psychologically evaluated. If we have any chance at all to get him back in the light. It's going to take a strong therapist to help him through this as well as immediate physical nurturing. I was told by our chereographer that during the artists costume fitting with his designer tonight they noticed he's lost more weight. As far as i can tell there is no one taking care responsibility (caring for) for him on a daily basis. Where was his assistant tonight? Tonight I was feeding him, wrapping him in blankets to warm his chills, massaging his feet to calm him and calling his doctor. There were four security guards outside his door, but no one offering him a cup of hot tea. Finally it's important for everyone to know , I believe that he really wants this. I twould shatter him, Break his heart if we pulled the plug. He's terribly frightened it's all going to go away. He asked me repeatedly tonight if i was going to leave him. H e was practically begging for my confidence. It broke my heart. H e was like a lost boy. There still may be a chance he can rise to the occasion if we get him the help he needs

    Sincerely,
    Kenny

    - Ortega states that there was a meeting on 6/19, with the heads of AEG, Randy Phillips and Gongaware. Ortega heard that Phillips and Gongaware told MJ that if he didn't start showing up to rehearsals, the This Is It tour would be cancelled.

    -On 6/20/09, Ortega is asked to go to MJ's house for a meeting with Randy Phillips, Frank Dileo, Conrad Murray and MJ. The topic is that Murray is upset that Ortega home.

    Paul Gongaware Testimony

    - Gongaware is the co-CEO of AEG. AEG was the producer and promoter of TII.

    - Gongaware states that he was also involved with Michael’s Dangerous and History tours.

    - They contracted 31 shows because Michael wanted to do 10 more shows than Prince.

    - They put 10 show tickets on sale just to engage how strong the sales are going to be. It was sold out instantly. Then they put the rest of the shows on sale and increased the concert number to 50.

    - Michael said that he would do 50 shows.

    - All 50 shows were sold out and even after that there were 250,000 people still in que for tickets. They could have sold out another 50 shows.


    - DA Brazil asks Paul Gongaware to go over Michael’s performance schedule for the upcoming weeks. July 5 rehearsals / 8 shows, August 10 shows / no rehearsal, September 9 shows/no rehearsal, October / November/ December no show / no rehearsal, January 3 rehearsals/10 shows, February 10 shows/no rehearsals, March 3 shows/no rehearsals.\

    - DA Brazil asks Gongaware about a production meeting at Carolwood house. Gongaware says Michael came a little late because he was at Dr. Klein. He seemed little off and little slow than usual. His speech was slurred. Yet he participated to the meeting.


    - Gongaware said that in May Michael told him to hire a personal physician, Dr. Murray, in May. Gongaware called Murray. Murray told him that he had 4 practices that he needed to close and lay off people and asked $5 Million a year to do it. Gongaware told him it would never happen and ended the negotiations. Gongaware believed they could get a more reasonable priced doctor in London. Michael said they needed to look after "the machine" (his body) and wanted Murray.

    - Gongaware received a call from Michael Amir Williams who said that Michael wanted him to hire Dr. Murray. Gongaware heard on the background Michael saying “offer him 150”. He called Dr. Murray again and said that he was authorized to offer him $150,000 a month. Murray accepted.


    - Gongaware asked Murray how will this work as he wasn’t licensed in UK. Murray told him not to worry and he’ll take care of the license. Employment contract was being drafted.

    - Another early June meeting in Carolwood with Ortega, Dileo, Phillips, Gongaware, Murray and Michael. The meeting happened because Kenny Ortega believed that Michael wasn’t at the stage he needed to be and they might not be ready for the show.


    - Gongaware said that the tone in the meeting was great and that Michael wasn’t defensive on the contrary he was engaged. They discussed what they can do to give Michael everything he needs to get to where he needs to be such as health and eating habits.
