Jerry Brown Seeks to Stop Michael Jackson’s Doctor

California gubernatorial candidate and state Attorney General Jerry Brown has stepped in to the case against Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson’s former doctor who is charged with involuntary manslaughter for allegedly giving the superstar singer a lethal dose of propofol.

Brown is asking that the court prevent Murray from practicing medicine until the criminal proceedings are completed. In a filing with the Los Angeles County Superior Court, Brown says that Murray’s alleged actions “make him a danger to the public.” Brown is representing the Califorinia Medical Board.

“The exercise of poor professional judgment and placing the life of a patient in jeopardy requires that the Board take measures to protect the public from future harm,” the filing states.

Judge Peter Espinoza has set a hearing in the case for April 5.

Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley, whose office is prosecuting Murray, is running for Brown’s current post.

Update: Brown will appear on “Dr. Phil” on Wednesday.
