A Las Vegas doctor, who administered drugs to Michael in 2008, has been ordered against his will, to testify on behalf of Michael’s physician Conrad Murray, in his upcoming involuntary manslaughter trial.
His defense team is preparing for the September (‘11) trial and his lawyers have now secured the testimony of anesthesiologist Dr. David Adams. The medic treated Michael in 2008 and gave him Propofol, on four separate occasions.
Defense attorneys have been working on landing Adams as a witness to provide testimony about the superstar’s “behaviour and reactions while under the drug and also how he responded to the administration of the drug,” according to court documents obtained by Tmz.com.
Adams has been fighting the request to give evidence, claiming he is a “low-key individual,” whose business has already taken a hit since his name was linked to the high-profile case.
But his argument has been dismissed – during a hearing last month (Apr. ‘11), a Las Vegas judge ruled in favour of the defense team’s motion to summon the anesthesiologist to testify because it “could be relevant and material,” to the case.
