Dr Conrad Murray's defence lawyer, Ed Chernoff, cross-examined Dr Steven Shafer in court.
Mr Chernoff questioned Dr Shafer's contention that Michael Jackson had
been hooked up to an IV drip of the anesthetic propofol, and was then left alone
by Dr Conrad Murray.
"That's a bold claim, isn't it?" Mr Chernoff asked.
Dr Shafer replied:
"It's an honest statement."
Mr Chernoff went on to suggest that Dr Shafer had drawn conclusions that were not necessarily supported by the evidence. Mr Chernoff said the type of IV line that Dr Shafer used in a demonstration for the jury was never found at Jackson's house.
