LOS ANGELES (AP) - The involuntary manslaughter case against
Michael Jackson's cardiologist is moving slowly through procedural
steps in the Los Angeles Superior Court system.
The case against Dr. Conrad Murray was assigned Monday to the
trial judge, Michael Pastor, but there were no decisions on a date
for the preliminary hearing or whether Murray's medical license
will be suspended pending trial.
The judge did schedule a June 14 court date to take up pending
Jackson's parents, Joe and Katherine Jackson, and his siblings
Janet and Jermaine attended the proceeding.
Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter, which
carries up to four years in prison.
