Conrad Murray Requests Release

Dr Conrad Murray has requested that he be released from jail pending his appeal against his four year sentence. He said in a declaration that he should be released either on his own recognizance or on bail with electronic monitoring.

His lawyer, J. Michael Flanagan, stated in the motion that Murray knows he cannot work as a doctor but would find other employment. He suggested the sentence and Murray's mode of confinement is extremely severe for a man with no prior criminal record.

A hearing on the motion is set for February 24th.

Dr Conrad Murray has launched an appeal against the the claim made by Michael Jackson's family for $100M in restitution against him.

Dr Murray's lawyer, Michael Falangan, claims that the amount of restitution ought to be restricted, given that Jackson was in part responsible for his own death through a self-administration of Propofol.

The judge is considering the amount.

A group of 100 Michael Jackson fans based in France have hired a lawyer, Emmanuel Ludot, to sue Conrad Murray (who is currently serving time for the involuntary manslaughter of Jackson)  for compensation for the "emotional damage" caused by Conrad Murray.

Ludot told the Afp:

"It's similar to losing a childhood friend in a traffic accident. Because this death affects you, you have the possibility to file a suit and seek compensation."

The case will be heard in Orleans, France on April 11 2012.

Will the money, if they win the case, bring Jackson back or assuage their alleged "grief"?
