Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor handling Conrad Murray’s involuntary manslaughter case in the death of Michael Jackson has delayed the proceedings. The jury selection was scheduled to begin on March 24, the questionaire will still take place then, however, the case will not begin opening arguments until May 9. This comes as a result of the defense’s lack of effort to submit their information on potential witnesses to prosecutors. California state law requires that all information for potential witnesses be submitted 30 days before the trial begins.
Dr. Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the June25, 2009 death of Michael Jackson. He has pleaded not guilty.
