I can’t remember who told me this (I think it was In Session’s correspondent Beth Karas but I’m NOT positive) but one of Dr. Murray’s attorneys is J. Michael Flanagan. Apparently, Flanagan is noted for achieving an acquittal for a defendant in another case involving propofol.
DDA Walgren: We will be calling toxicologists to the stand today or tomorrow. There will be summary report of that finding that will be introduced. No problem from the defense about that.
DDA stipulate that iPhone is the phone recovered on July 28th, 2009. All stipulate.
DDA discussed Marx’ background, employment on July 28th, 2009 Computer forensic examiner in the DEA. Now since retired. Was employed 7-8 years. responsible for extracting computer evidence and present it for evidence (at trial).
DDA Q: Did conduct analysis of this iPhone as related to the unallocated space.
DDA Q: Did you find some screen shots?
Marx: Yes I did.
(Sprocket note: Clerical issue. Walgren restate numbering issue. Goes over the Exhibit numbers and what they are specifically. I check with reporter next to me who believes it was Conrad Murray denying the release of his medical records regarding Michael Jackson.)
DDA Q: (Ms. Brazil direct.) Through questioning, establishes Lopez’ background. Employed as a pharmacist for 15 years. Business owner of Applied Pharmacy Services, located in Las Vegas, Nevada. Describes his duties as owner; clientele is patients that have been directed by a doctor/facility.
Through questioning, DDA establishes that in June (Sprocket note: year illegible may be 2008) received a phone call from Conrad Murray. He identified himself as African American and that most of his patients were African American and that some of these patients suffer from vitaliago. He was asking about bedoquin product, regarding the strength it comes in. Murray was interested in the 20% strength.
DDA Q: Did he ask if you were able to provide medications for his other clinics?
Lopez: Yes. He asked about propofol and saline bags.
Sprocket then goes through the amount of supplies and medicines ordered from Lopez and shipping information including FedEx tracing.
Cross by defense attorney Low.
Q: Is it fair to say as a pharmacist, part of your job is to provide prescription medication to doctors?
Q: There are a lot of laws and rules and regs your supposed to (comply with)?
Lopez (paraphrasing): Before you [can] be a good pharmacist, is following the rules, is before filling a new prescription, you need to verify the validity … of the license.
