The doctor who treated Michael Jackson prior to the pop star’s death will keep his California medical license, a judge in L.A. ruled Monday, according to Reuters. Dr. Conrad Murray was charged with involuntary manslaughter following Jackson’s death last June; the coroners in charge of Jackson’s death reported that the singer’s death was a homicide caused by an overdose of the surgical anesthetic propofol. (Murray admitted administering the propofol to Jackson.) The California Medical Board had requested that Murray’s license be revoked; the judge ruled that since he already was barred from administering sedatives, “any further restraints must come via an appeal to the initial ruling and not from a new decision.”
