Beat It: Michael Jackson Doc Conrad Murray Strikes Deal to Keep License

On the eve of the death of the King of Pop, Conrad Murray strikes deal with Nevada to keep his medical license.


We're still not sure what it takes to lose a medical license in California or Nevada, but it seems that Michael Jackson's former doctor Conrad Murray, has dodged another bullet, pun intended. Murray's medical license was suspended in Nevada because of his failure to pay back child support owed in the amount of $16,000. Murray arranged to make a payment and the suspension was lifted. The amount of the payment has not been disclosed. Dr. Murray may continue to practice medicine. That makes us feel good.
