Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor has ordered that Dr. Conrad Murray, personal physician to Michael Jackson, stand trial for involuntary manslaughter in the death of his famed client, according to E! Online. Pastor "also ordered that Murray's medical license be suspended, effective immediately," saying he believes Murray's continued medical practice "does pose an imminent danger to the state of California." Much of the controversy surrounds Murray's use of propofol, and his failure to monitor Jackson after delivering what was to be a fatal dose of the drug.
