Nurse Practitioner Testifies Jackson Asked For Propofol Months Before Death

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A nurse practitioner who treated Michael Jackson testified Thursday about the singer’s desire to use propofol in the months before he was administered a fatal overdose of the drug.

Cherilyn Lee told jurors Jackson was desperate for sleep on the last day she treated him for fatigue and insomnia in April 2009 while he was rehearsing for his ill-fated This Is It tour.

Lee testified she tried to convince him to stay away from the powerful anesthetic, also known as Diprivan, and the day she refused was the last day she worked for the late King of Pop.

“I said, ‘I understand what you want… You want to be knocked out to go to sleep but what if you don’t wake up,’” Lee testified she told Jackson.

“How did he respond to that?” AEG attorney Kathryn Cahan asked the witness.

“He continued to tell me… ‘You don’t understand… I will be safe as long as I’m monitored,” she said.

Lee testified Jackson asked her to stay to watch him sleep inside his bedroom in the his Carolwood mansion.

She testified he startled her when he suddenly stood up on top of the bed at 4:30 in the morning.

“(He) stared at me with those nice big round eyes… he said, ‘I told you I cannot sleep all night. All I need is something to sleep, I just need Diprivan to go to sleep,’” she testified Jackson pleaded.

“When I said it is only used by anesthesiologists (he said), ‘Why don’t you bring one, you can bring an anesthesiologist and you can come too… so I could be monitored.’ He wanted me to know that he was going to be safe,” she continued.

Lee testified she did not give propofol to Jackson, who died in June 2009 following an overdose of the drug administered by Dr. Conrad Murray.

Murray is currently serving a four-year sentence at a L.A. County jail following his 2011 conviction for involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death.

Katherine Jackson is suing AEG, the concert promoters of her son’s ill-fated This Is It comeback concert series, claiming executives were negligent in hiring and supervising Murray.

AEG denies any wrongdoing.

The firm’s lawyer, Marvin Putnam, told KCAL9′s Randy Paige outside of court Thursday using the drug was Jackson’s choice and denied the assertion AEG executives pushed him to do so.

“They’ve tried to say in their complaint and otherwise that Mr. Jackson was forced to take propofol by AEG Live and a doctor of their choosing… We see that’s not true,” Putnam said.

Jackson family attorney Ryan Panish disputed the claims in an interview with Paige.

“AEG agreed to pay Dr. Murray $150,000 a month. They didn’t have to do that. The only doctor that killed Michael Jackson or that he ever had any issue with the quality of the care was the doctor that met and spoke with AEG and their top principles,” Panish said.

Jackson would have turned 55 Thursday.

Джексоны против AEG - день 74 – 21 августа 2013 – резюме

Remember_The_Time

Никого из Джексонов в суде не было.

Видео показаний Джеффри Адамса (Jeffrey Adams)

Адамс работал в охране МД и представил его Мюррею в 2007 году. Позднее он стал работать на Мюррея. Адамс стал работать с Мюрреем на следующий день после смерти МД и до того дня, как Мюррея приговорили к тюрьме за непредумышленное убийство. (АР)

Адамс сказал, что отучился три года в Государственном Университете в Лонг Бич (Long Beach State University), который окончил в 1993 году. 8 лет он проработал охранником в школе. После 1999 года Адамс перебрялся в Лас-Вегас, работал на фабрике Burlington Coat Factory, принимал меры по предотвращению потерь, смотрел в камеры, отслеживая воров на протяжении 4 лет. Также он работал у Неймана Маркуса (Neiman Marcus) в Лас-Вегасе, от которого ушёл в 2007 году. После этого, по словам Адамса, он работал личным охранником одного адвоката в Лас-Вегасе. (АВС7)

Адам сказал в своих показаниях, что везде путешествовал с Мюрреем. Адамс: "Мне не платили как его охраннику, но я был его охранником. Это понималось именно так. Не было никакого трудового контракта или соглашения на подобную должность. Я начал работать на Мюррея на следующий день после смерти МД". (АВС)

Что касается отношения Адамса с певцом, то возникла путаница. (Adams' relationship with the singer was a bit confusing) Он сказал, что работал охранником на специальном мероприятии для Джексона, а с другой стороны он сказал, что "не работал на Майкла официально, а координировал работу его персонала". (I orchestrated his staff) (LATimes)

Вопрос: В какой-то момент вы не работали на МД?
Ответ: Я не работал на него официально. Я координировал работу его персонала. Официально я не работал. (АВС7)

У Адамса было собственное охранное предприятие под названием Knockout Security, которое он открыл в 2004 году. Он сказал, что встретил МД в начале 90-х, их познакомил общий друг.

Вопрос: Какое впечатление оставил у вас Мюррей, когда вы впервые встретили его?
Ответ: Высокий, кардиолух. Он сказал мне, что он кардиолух. Вот.

С момента встречи с Мюрреем до переезда в Лас-Вегас, Адамс видел врача 3-4 раза на пикниках в Лос-Анджелесе. (he saw the doctor 3-4 times at barbecues in Los Angeles) Адамс вместе со своим отцом стал пациентом Мюррея в Лас-Вегасе.

Вопрос: Вы по-прежнему являетесь его пациентом?
Ответ: Ну, он же за решёткой сейчас. Так что, нет, сейчас, нет. (АВС7)

Адамс: "На следующий день после смерти МД я позвонил Мюррею и спросил его, правда ли то, что я услышал. Он сказал, что да. Я спросил его, как он и нужна ли ему моя помощь. И он сказал, что нуждается в моей помощи. В то же время мой отец сказал, чтоб я шёл к...Мюррею. Я сказал Мюррею, что он много заботился о моём отце ради меня, поэтому я готов быть рядом с ним в этой ситуации, пока она не разрешится. (Как трогательно! Я рыдаю! - прим. пер.) Мы выходили вместе, чтобы где-нибудь поесть, мы вместе ходили в кино, на уголовные разбирательства, на встречи с адвокатами, гуляли вместе, взявшись за руки". Адамс ездил с Мюрреем в Лас-Вегас, Хьюстон, Сан-Диего, Филадельфию, Бостон, Майами. Адамс сказал, что пастор Мюррея в Хьюстоне также был его пациентом. (Видимо, все, с кем знакомился Мюррей, непременно имели проблемы с сердцем и рано или поздно становились его пациентами - прим. пер.) Также ещё целая куча других пасторов наблюдалась у него, а также его пациентами были и прихожане, с которыми он ходил в церковь. (Похоже, он питался пациентами, маньягъ. - прим. пер.) Адамс торчал в офисе Мюррея, когда тот был в Лас-Вегасе и Хьюстоне и занимался своими пациентами. По ТВ Адамс узнал, что МД умер. Он позвонил Мюррею, который был в Санта-Монике. На следующий день он поехал в Лос-Анджелес. Адамс: Он никогда не обсуждал со смной, как умер Майкл. Он ничего не объяснил" Адамс: "Мы жили вместе в одном помещении, мы всё делали вместе". (АВС7)

(...и спали тоже вместе, а то вдруг.... - прим. пер.)

Изображение

Последний раз Адамс разговаривал с Мюрреем в день вынесения обвинения. Адамс сказал, что Мюррей никогда не обсуждал с ним то, как лечил МД. (АВС7)

Адамс руководил охраной МД в декабре 2006 года. Он сказал, что его друг Башеиер Мухаммад (Basheier Muhammad), работавший в охране МД, позвонил ему и предложил работу. Адамс: "Мухаммад позвонил мне в 2007 году, может, в феврале. Он делал периодическую работу для МД". Адамс: "Я представил Мюррея Майклу в начале 2007 года". Адамс сказал, что дети МД заболели тогда, и нужно было показать их врачу, но Майкл не хотел везти в обычную больницу. Адамс сказал МД, что у него есть врач. Д-р Мюррей, что, может, он захочет приехать и осмотреть детей. Адамс сказал, что Майкл тогда хотел убедиться в том, что Мюррею можно доверять. Адамс: "Тогда я сказал МД, что он был моим врачом, он мой друг, что ему определённо можно доверять". (Нет, я определённо никогда не перестану удивляться этой жуткой иронии судьбы, такому убийственному стечению обстоятельств! - прим. пер.) Адамс: "Я позвонил Мюррею, сказал ему, что у меня есть важный клиент, дети которого заболели и которых нельзя просто отвезти в обычную больницу". Мюррей приехал в тот же вечер, Адамса там не было в тот момент. Адамс спросил на следующий день у Мохаммада, приезжал ли Мюррей. Мухаммад сказал, что да. Адамс: "Майкл поблагодарил меня за врача, и больше мы к этой теме не возвращались". По словам Адамса, Майкл сказал ему тогда: "Я очень хочу поблагодарить тебя, он был очень профессиональным врачом, я ценю это". (АВС7)

Адамс сказал, что не помнит точную дату знакомства Майкла и Мюррея. (АР)

Адамс сказал в своих показаниях, что иногда, когда приходил в дом, видел там Мюррея после этого. Но он не знал, как складывались его с МД отношения.
Вопрос: У вас были когда-нибудь ощущения, что Мюррей пытался скрыть свои взаимодействия с МД?
Ответ: Нет. (АВС7)

Адамса также спросил, видел ли он, кто из родственников навещал МД в Лас-Вегасе. Он сказал, что видел только Ренди и Джо. (АР)
Я готова верить, но надо знать во что!

Michael Jackson unusually close with his doctors, jury told

Pop superstar had close relationship with many of his medical providers

For Michael Jackson, a trip to the doctor's office sometimes wasn't just paying a visit to a health care provider. It was paying a visit to a trusted friend.

A jury has been hearing for weeks about the pop superstar's close relationship with many of his medical providers — spending Christmas with some doctors, inviting others to spend time at his Neverland Ranch.

His primary care doctor served as the best man at the singer's second wedding, to a woman who worked in his dermatologist's office and became a frequent companion on his medical visits.

Jackson's relationship with his final doctor, Conrad Murray, is important to the negligent hiring case, but in the process jurors are getting an inside look at celebrity health care — after-hours visits, house calls and false names on records and prescriptions — that are meant to preserve confidentiality but can present ethical challenges for doctors.

They have also heard a detailed portrait of medical history, including painful burns and the skin conditions vitiligo and discoid lupus that led Jackson to feel he was disfigured.

Other practitioners have recounted stories of telling Jackson they wouldn't comply with his requests for painkillers or the powerful anesthetic that would kill him in his bedroom in 2009.

The parade of testimony from Jackson's doctors is central to the defence case being mounted by AEG Live LLC, the company promoting Jackson's ill-fated comeback concerts, which is being sued by the singer's mother.

Katherine Jackson says the company hired Murray to help her son prepare for his shows. In the process, her attorneys say, AEG Live created a conflict of interest that compelled Murray to provide her son with the anesthetic propofol as a sleep aid in order to preserve his anticipated $150,000 a month payday.

AEG contends it is not liable for the superstar's death but that it was his own personal choices that led to his demise.

Stories the jurors have heard throughout the 18-week trial about Jackson and his doctors:

*Two of Jackson's doctors, Scott Saunders and William Van Valin II, went to Jackson's Neverland Ranch near Santa Barbara, according to testimony from Saunders. Saunders recounted how Jackson occasionally showed up at his home unannounced and sent him and his family Christmas presents one year. Saunders said Jackson would sometimes invite him out to Neverland and would ask him to stay longer so they could just talk.

*Jackson occasionally lived in the garage, converted into a guest room, of Dr. Alimorad Farshcian when the Miami physician was treating the singer from 2001 until 2003. Farshchian placed an implant in Jackson's abdomen to block the euphoric effects of opioid drugs so he would stop taking them. Farshcian said he traveled with Jackson and spent Christmas with him in 2002.

*Several witnesses who described Jackson's medical treatments said the singer required after-hours visits to avoid paparazzi scrutiny. His records were sometimes filed under the names Omar Arnold, Michael Jefferson or other aliases and prescriptions were also sometimes placed in false names to try to protect his privacy.

*Jackson's second wife, Debbie Rowe, worked for the singer's longtime dermatologist Dr. Arnold Klein and would accompany the singer to many of his medical appointments throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Rowe said Jackson was intensely afraid of pain and required numerous procedures to treat his vitiligo and try to repair damage to his scalp after it was burned while filming a Pepsi commercial in 1984. When Rowe and Jackson married in Australia in 1996, another of the singer's physicians, Dr. Allan Metzger, served as their best man.

*Rowe said Klein and a now-retired plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Hoefflin, competed with each other for who could give Jackson the best painkillers. Rowe said Jackson trusted his doctors. "Michael had a very low pain tolerance and his fear of pain was incredible," she said. "I think the doctors took advantage of him that way."

*Dental anesthesiologist Dr. Christine Quinn said in 1998 or 1999 Jackson summoned her to a Beverly Hills hotel and asked her to give him propofol to help him sleep. She said she refused.

*Dr. Gordon Sasaki, who tried to repair damage to Jackson's scalp in 2003, said he accepted the singer's invitation to go to Neverland Ranch after they met. Sasaki however refused to prescribe any more painkillers to Jackson after the singer requested Percocet three times in a short time span. Sasaki said he turned over Jackson's pain management to Klein.

*Dr. Stephen Gordon, a Las Vegas plastic surgeon, said Jackson requested that he give him a shot of the painkiller Demerol "for the road" after a procedure in 2003. Gordon refused and didn't see Jackson again for another four years, when he returned with Murray. Jackson acted as if he didn't know Gordon, the doctor said, and Murray took charge of the visit, driving Jackson to the office and paying for it when it was over. "There was nothing usual or customary about what he was doing," Gordon said of Murray.

Attorneys for Jackson's mother have acknowledged that Jackson struggled with painkillers throughout his life, but have said most of his prescriptions were tied to medical procedures. AEG Live's lawyers contend Jackson showed signs that he was doctor shopping, hid his addiction to painkillers and lied about his medical history.

A close relationship between a doctor and patients is not inherently wrong, said Arthur Caplan, the director of the Division of Medical Ethics at NYU Langone Medical Center. He said it often occurs in small towns, and wealthy patients can sometimes afford to hire their own doctors. The problem occurs when the doctor's judgment is clouded and their treatment is affected.

"If you can't say no or stop, you probably are too far down the friendship highway," Caplan said.

Doctor: Michael Jackson Playing ‘Russian Roulette’ When Using Propofol

LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Michael Jackson put his life at risk each time he abused the anesthetic propofol for sleep, an addiction expert testified Tuesday.

Dr. Paul Earley was called to the stand by attorneys for concert promoter AEG Live in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by the late singer’s mother.

Michael Jackson died in June 2009 following an overdose of propofol administered by Dr. Conrad Murray.

Dr. Earley testified Michael Jackson’s abuse of the anesthetic, together with painkillers, put his life at extreme risk in the days leading up to his death.

“Mr. Jackson’s prognosis was grave in regard to his consequences to his life expectancy…from his poly substance abuse,” he said.

Dr. Earley said there is insufficient evidence to indicate Jackson was addicted to propofol, though evidence did show the singer abused the drug.

He characterized Jackson’s use of the anesthetic as abuse “because it was causing difficulties in his life as a result.”

Dr. Earley went on to say Jackson was warned by several doctors not to use propofol for sleep and not to use it at home, yet he sought out doctors who would do just that.

“At some point he began seeking out physicians who would administer propofol to him in a methodical fashion,” Dr. Earley testified.

Among those doctors was Conrad Murray, who was not trained in the proper use of the drug and who lacked the equipment necessary to administer the drug safely.

“Each time it’s like playing Russian roulette,” Earley testified of Jackson’s use of the drug.

In cross-examination,the first question asked by Jackson family attorney Kevin Boyle was who gave Jackson the drug that killed him. Dr. Earley answered “Conrad Murray.”

Last week, the jury heard from a nurse practitioner who testified that Jackson asked for the drug, also known as Diprivan, on the last day she treated him for fatigue and insomnia in April 2009.

The jury also heard from a psychiatrist and addiction specialist who testified the singer shopped for doctors to obtain prescription painkillers and his doctors did not maintain proper boundaries.

Jackson attorneys maintain that AEG Live executives were aware of the singer’s issues and should have better supervised Jackson’s medical care.

AEG argues Michael Jackson was personally responsible for his own health.

Michael Jackson had 'grave prognosis' after long-term addiction, witness says

Michael Jackson's drug addiction gave him "a grave prognosis" for a long life, and each dose of an anesthetic his doctor gave him to help him sleep was like playing "Russian roulette," an addiction expert hired by AEG Live testified.

Lawyers for the concert promoter hired Dr. Paul Earley in their effort to downplay damages the company might have to pay if found liable in the pop icon's death.

But lawyers for Jackson's mother and children attacked Earley's credibility and independence, pointing to an online blog he wrote just three weeks after the singer's death. They argue it shows he concluded then that Jackson was addicted to the surgical anesthetic propofol.

Earley also accepted $53,000 from AEG Live to fund a study of propofol addiction, without disclosing to the study's publisher, his collaborator or readers that he was also being paid to help the company's defense lawyers in the wrongful death lawsuit, they argue.

Jackson lawyer Kevin Boyle resumes his grilling of Earley on Wednesday, the trial's 79th day of testimony.

Jurors learned Tuesday that the end of the trial is approaching, with just a handful of witnesses left to hear. Closing arguments could be delivered around September 23, based on estimates lawyers for each side gave the judge. The trial began in April. The judge did not tell jurors that she is considering a plan to "partially sequester" them while they deliberate the case.

Earley: Jackson went 'doctor shopping'

Despite his 2009 blog titled "Michael Jackson: Addiction in the Privileged," Earley testified Tuesday that there "was insufficient evidence that he was addicted to propofol."

"He was given propofol initially for appropriate medical procedures, but at some point he began seeking out physicians who would administer propofol to him," Earley testified.

The last two instances of "doctor shopping" for propofol were late March and April of 2009, when Jackson asked an anesthesiologist to go on tour with him and then asked a nurse to help him find an anesthesiologist, he said.

Earley said there was no evidence that Jackson's search for a doctor to give him propofol continued after AEG Live Co-CEO Paul Gongaware sent an e-mail to the singer's assistant on May 6, 2009, telling him Murray had agreed to take the job as his personal physician for the "This Is It" tour. "Done at $150k a month," Gongaware wrote.

"Sounds like he got it," Earley testified.

The Jackson family's lawyers contend that AEG Live executives ignored warning signs that Jackson's health began deteriorating after Murray began attending to him on a daily basis. Show workers sent e-mails describing a paranoid and frail Jackson who couldn't perform his standard dances or remember words to songs he had sung for decades.

A Harvard Medical School sleep expert, testifying in June for the Jacksons, concluded that the 60 nights of propofol infusions apparently robbed Jackson of REM -- rapid eye movement -- sleep, which is vital to keep the brain and body alive.

"The symptoms that Mr. Jackson was exhibiting were consistent with what someone might expect to see of someone suffering from total sleep deprivation over a chronic period," Dr. Charles Czeisler testified.

MJ's 'grave prognosis'

Earley testified that Jackson was addicted to opioids -- painkillers given to him by doctors starting in the early 1990s when he was being treated for a painful scalp burn. That addiction, combined with his use of propofol, would have reduced his life expectancy if he had not died in 2009, Earley said.

Every time Jackson was given propofol was "like playing Russian roulette," Earley testified.

How much longer Jackson might have lived -- and earned money touring -- will be important if the jury decides AEG Live is liable for damages in Jackson's death. Jackson lawyers contend he would have earned more than $1.5 billion touring the world over the next several years.

Earley testified that Jackson's hopes of recovering were bleak because of his wealth and fame.

Expert's conflict?

Soon after AEG Live's lawyers hired Earley as a consultant on propofol addiction in 2011, they agreed to fund his scientific research, which resulted in his paper titled "Addiction to Propofol: A Study of 22 Treatment Cases." The American Society of Addiction Medicine published the study in March 2013.

Earley insisted in his testimony that AEG Live's funding did not influence the conclusions of his study or his testimony in the trial.

But the Jackson lawyer hammered the doctor about the lack of disclosure to the scientific journal and his collaborator that he was being paid to be an expert witness in the trial. He informed them that he was doing research for the company, but the trial aspect was "irrelevant," Earley said.
"It's irrelevant to health care professionals," he said. "It wouldn't affect their understanding of the paper."

After four months, Michael Jackson wrongful death case nears end

After more than four months of testimony, the Michael Jackson wrongful death case could finally go to the jury later this month.

Court clerk Neli Raya said she expects the case willl be handed to the jury in about 2 1/2 weeks.

Marvin Putnam, attorney for AEG Live, has said he expects to rest his case next Friday at the latest. Then each side could call rebuttal witnesses, and attorneys could argue over the instructions the judge will give the 12 jurors who have sat through the marathon.

While jurors have heard from financial experts, AEG executives, doctors and Jackson family members, none of the celebrities on the attorneys witness lists — Prince, Spike Lee, Quincy Jones and Diana Ross among them — have been called to testify.

The case revolves around the question of who controlled Dr. Conrad Murray, the cardiologist who administered the fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol to Jackson at the singer’s rented Holmby Hills home on June 25, 2009.

Jackson was preparing for a 50-concert comeback in London that was being promoted and produced by AEG. Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and is serving a jail sentence.

The Jacksons say that AEG negligently hired and supervised Murray, while AEG says the singer hired him and that any money the entertainment firm was supposed to pay him was an advance.

Michael Jackson death trial takes odd twist

The co-author of a study on propofol addiction funded by AEG Live and used in their defense in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial lost his medical license for writing illegal drug prescriptions, according to testimony.

Dr. Torin Finver was hired to help with the AEG Live study after he lost his job at a pizza parlor and took a job driving a Goodwill truck, said Dr. Paul Earley, who testified Wednesday as an expert witness for the concert promoter.

Finver was "destitute, dead broke, and I wanted to help him," Earley, himself a recovering heroin addict, testified.

The revelation was a bizarre twist in the trial of the billion-dollar lawsuit filed by Jackson's mother and three children, which is being heard by a Los Angeles jury. The four-month-long trial is nearing a conclusion.

AEG Live lawyers will announce if they have any more witnesses to call before playing the video depositions of three more doctors on Friday. Jackson lawyers would then take several days to call rebuttal witnesses before closing arguments are heard, which is likely to happened around September 23.

Earley testified that he never disclosed to AEG Live lawyers that his co-author had lost his medical license. Ironically, the company is being accused of the negligent hiring of Dr. Conrad Murray, convicted in Jackson's death because it allegedly failed to check Murray's background before hiring him.

Jackson lawyer Kevin Boyle also grilled Earley over his nondisclosure that he was working as a paid consultant in AEG Live's defense when he submitted the study for publication in a medical journal.

He said the concert promoter did not try to influence his findings, which were published in March in the Journal of Addiction Medicine.

Jackson lawyers are hoping the controversy over Earley's work for AEG Live will distract jurors from his conclusion that Michael Jackson was a drug addict with a "grave prognosis" that would have shortened his life had he not died of an overdose of the surgical anesthetic propofol on June 25, 2009.

Each dose of an anesthetic his doctor gave him to help him sleep was like playing "Russian roulette," Earley said.

Murray told investigators he gave Jackson infusions of propofol for 60 nights to treat his insomnia as the entertainer prepared for his comeback concerts.

Lawyers for the concert promoter hired Earley in their effort to downplay damages the company might have to pay if found liable in the pop icon's death. How much longer Jackson might have lived -- and earned money touring -- will be important if the jury decides AEG Live is liable for damages in
Jackson's death. Jackson lawyers contend he would have earned more than $1.5 billion touring the world over the next several years.

Jackson asked an anesthesiologist to go on tour with him and then asked a nurse to help him find an anesthesiologist, he said.

Earley said there was no evidence Jackson's search for a doctor to give him propofol continued after AEG Live Co-CEO Paul Gongaware sent an e-mail to the singer's assistant on May 6, 2009, telling him Murray had agreed to take the job as his personal physician for the "This Is It" tour. "Done at $150k a month," Gongaware wrote.

"Sounds like he got it," Earley testified.

Michael Jackson trial: Drug addiction expert testifies

A drug addiction expert testified Tuesday that Michael Jackson's use of drugs put him on a dangerous road that was likely to shorten his life.

Jackson's use of prescription drugs was secretive, according to testimony. Jurors have heard he used fake names. His use of propofol to sleep at a hotel and at his home was never recorded in medical records. Was Jackson addicted to propofol?

"I don't think there's sufficient evidence from the record reading to ascertain whether he was addicted to either propofol or benzodiazepine. There are suggestions in the record, but there's not sufficient information," Dr. Paul Earley, a defense expert on anesthesia, had said in a video deposition.

Testifying in person on Tuesday, Earley says propofol studies are scant. Documented cases of dependency are rare and that most addicts are healthcare professionals who obtain it through surgery centers. The anesthetic is not available in retail pharmacies. Earley testified that he has studied 26 propofol addicts in his 30 years of practice.

Attorneys for concert promoter AEG Live claim that Jackson's habit was so unusual, even those closest to the star were unaware that Dr. Conrad Murray was infusing Jackson with propofol as an insomnia treatment in the two months before Jackson died of an overdose.

Earley testified there was even more that put Jackson at risk of death. He said that Jackson was addicted to opioids and the mix is potentially lethal. Earley pointed to multiple incidents when Jackson stopped breathing while under sedation.

Katherine Jackson has not been in court for the last two weeks. Her attorneys claim that Michael Jackson's health declined as he prepared for his comeback tour and that AEG failed to supervise Murray, the doctor that AEG conditionally agreed to hire at Jackson's request.

Regarding Earley, the Jackson attorneys are raising questions about his credibility. Earley completed a propofol study with $53,000 provided by AEG.

Earley says he properly disclosed the funding source and that the report did not form the basis of his opinion on this case.

Meantime, an outlook for the length of the case: there's a week and a half more for the defense. The Jackson attorneys say they will then put on their rebuttal case calling as many as four more witnesses.

Michael Jackson trial: Plaintiffs question AEG witness' credibility

A key witness for the defense found his research and his credibility severely tested in the Michael Jackson wrongful death trial on Wednesday.

When the Los Angeles County coroner reported that Jackson died from an overdose of the anesthetic propofol, the news struck Dr. Paul Earley, an addiction specialist and AEG defense witness who says he has treated more people for propofol addiction than anyone else in the nation.

Weeks after Jackson's death, Earley wrote in a blog titled, "Michael Jackson: Addiction in the Priveleged." Later he wrote, "Murray Convicted - Addiction Wins."

That term "addict" drew fire from the Jackson attorneys, who pointed out Earley never examined Jackson. They played an earlier statement from a video deposition in which Earley said, "If one dies of a propofol problem, it's not a far stretch to assume that addiction is the causation there."

The Jackson attorneys assert that Earley violated principles of ethics, which say that physicians may comment about a person in the public eye but "without making specific diagnostic comments."

Another ethics breach alleged by the Jackson attorneys is that Earley's study of propofol addiction among healthcare providers was funded with $53,000 provided by AEG. They also pointed out that the funding was noted on the last page of Earley's report instead of the title page.

Earley testified that was the decision of the editor and that the study was needed because so little research had been done on propofol abuse.

Jackson attorney Kevin Boyle attacked the credibility of Earley, who told the jurors on Tuesday that he was once hooked on drugs. On Wednesday, Boyle asked Earley what the drugs were.

Earley listed opioids, including Oxycodone and the street drug heroin. Earley testified that he speaks publicly about his addiction because he thinks "it is important that people understand that people can get better."

Another dispute centered on Earley's opinion that Jackson's life expectancy was grave because of his addiction to the painkiller Demerol. It is a point that could minimize what jurors might award Katherine Jackson if they find AEG liable for hiring Dr. Conrad Murray.

Earley conceded that he didn't know of anyone dying from Demerol injections from a doctor, but he knew of three deaths from improper administration by a doctor of propofol.

Michael Jackson's death trial takes bizarre twist

A testimony in Michael Jackson wrongful death trial has revealed that the co-author of a study on propofol addiction funded by AEG Live and used in their defence trial lost his medical licence for writing illegal drug prescriptions.

It was revealed that Dr Torin Finver was hired to help with the concert promoter study after he lost his job at a pizza parlor and took a job driving a Goodwill truck, CNN reported.

The revelation was an odd twist in the trial of the billion-dollar lawsuit filed by Jackson’s mother, Katherine, and three children, which is being heard by a Los Angeles jury.

Я готова верить, но надо знать во что!
