Michael Jackson’s Medical Records Will Be Released In Court

A judge said Tuesday he will review medical records from Michael Jackson’s longtime dermatologist before deciding whether the documents should be turned over to defense attorneys seeking to show the singer was addicted to a powerful painkiller at the time of his death.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor will review files from Dr. Arnold Klein that cover the final nine months of Jackson’s life.

Klein is fighting the release of the files to attorneys for Dr. Conrad Murray, citing patient confidentiality rules. Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in the death of the pop star.

Attorneys for Murray say they need to review the files to see if the records support a defense theory that Jackson was suffering from withdrawal from the painkiller Demerol when he died unexpectedly on June 25, 2009.

The lawyers contend Klein frequently injected Jackson with Demerol and the singer became addicted to the treatments.

“Due to Dr. Klein’s actions, Mr. Jackson became physiologically and psychologically dependent on Demerol,” Murray’s attorneys wrote in a motion filed Monday. “Dr. Murray’s right to this information in the criminal case greatly outweighs any privilege or privacy rights asserted by Dr. Klein pertaining to the records of Mr. Jackson who is now deceased.”

Defense attorney J. Michael Flanagan has said a potential defense expert witness contends Jackson was showing signs of Demerol withdrawal before his death, and that may have complicated his reactions to other medications.

Authorities have accused Murray of giving the singer a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol, which is normally administered in hospital settings. His attorneys have said he did not give the singer anything that should have killed him.

Klein’s attorney Garo Ghazarian said during the hearing Tuesday that the defense hadn’t shown any evidence that Jackson was addicted to Demerol or that any of Klein’s treatments were improper.

Pastor said he will review the files on April 6 and also hear from an attorney for Jackson’s estate, who have not waived any of the singer’s privileges.

Some of Klein’s medical records have already been turned over to coroner’s officials who investigated Jackson’s death.

Murray’s attorneys Ed Chernoff and Nareg Gourjian said they have reviewed those files. They agreed to limit any records requests to the last nine months of Jackson’s life, when the singer returned to Los Angeles and began preparing for a series of comeback concerts titled “This Is It.”

Jury selection in Murray’s case begins Thursday. Hundreds of potential jurors are being summoned to a downtown Los Angeles courthouse where they will begin filling out questionnaires that Pastor said currently spans 29 pages and contains 125 questions.

The judge met in closed session with attorneys to finalize the questionnaire. Opening statements are expected to begin on May 9.

Would Dr.klein have written down every time he had given him the drugs.
Dr. Murray was his doctor and did not even keep a record of what when how much date time of what medicine he was giving Mike.
From Elizabeth passing to this makes me wonder if he is still with us! :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:

"Physician–patient privilege is a legal concept, related to medical confidentiality, that protects communications between a patient and his or her doctor from being used against the patient in court.[1] It is a part of the rules of evidence in many common law jurisdictions. Almost every jurisdiction that recognizes physician-patient privilege not to testify in court, either by statute or though case law, limits the privilege to knowledge acquired during the course of providing medical services.[2] In some jurisdictions, conversations between a patient and physician may be privileged in both criminal and civil courts.

In the United States, the Federal Rules of Evidence do not recognize doctor-patient privilege." :?

:shock:  :( I really hope the medical records will be as fake as the autopsy report. They must be!

My question to this foolishness is even if he was addicted to demerol, what would that have to do with MJ having ACUTE PROPOFOL POISIONING?  Meaning propofol levels in his body were off the meter!  How can that defense in any way, shape or form have anything to do with what Murray alllegedly gave him on 6/25/09.  If he was on demerol was that any excuse for Murray to be loading Michael up with propofol ? :roll:  How does he feel these allegations will help his case?   Don't see the logic :?

I agree with you so.. This is about a Doctor who did not care for his patient at all and druged & neglected his patient to death. Knowingly he did not call 911 though he was on the phone all morning and there are phone records to prove it, he did not have proper equipment on hand in case of an emergency, did not know how to do CPR and the body was not even on the floor when paramecis arrived as was advised by the 911 rep, he mixed many different kind of drugs, did not tell the medics all of the drugs he was giving the patient, the treatment he was giving should have been done in a hospital setting, did not keep a log or record of what, when, how much, drugs he was giving his patient, did not know the address though he was coming to the house for weeks, he asked bodyguard to hide drugs which I can not believe the bodyguard did, was allowed in the emergency room though he was not employed by UCLA hospital.  :shock:  :shock:

Even if the patient was addicted he as a Doctor should have not supported his addiction and continue to give him drugs causing death to his patient. :D  :D

HE IS ON TRIAL FOR ACUTE PROPOFOL POISINING!!!!!! :evil:  :twisted:  :evil:  :twisted:

Doctors are supposed to heal, help, carefor there patients not inject them with drugs all night long because they can not sleep or have acute pain.. :evil:  :twisted:

The trial is about Dr. Murrays neglect, improper care, malice and murder of his patient who he made suffer and die in this horrible way!!! :evil:  :twisted:  :evil:

THIS IS BEYOND BELIEF AND MAKES NO SINCE AT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :shock:

"I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Therefore be shrewd as serpents and as innocent as doves."  




Why not just tell people I'm an alien from Mars? Tell them I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight. They'll believe anything you say, because you're a reporter. But if I, Michael Jackson, were to say, "I'm an alien from Mars and I eat live chickens and do a voodoo dance at midnight," people would say, "Oh, man, that Michael Jackson is nuts. He's cracked up. You can't believe a single word that comes out of his mouth."
