Did someone not want to interrupt their summer vacation plans? With just over a week until the trial over the death of Michael Jackson was set to begin, Judge Michael Pastor has delayed hearing the case until September, saying Dr. Conrad Murray‘s attorneys needed more time to get ready to cross examine prosecution witnesses. Murray is accused of providing Jackson with lethal quantities of the anesthetic Propofol, which were found in the superstar’s body after his 2009 death.
Reportedly, one of the prosecution witnesses was going to argue that Jackson couldn’t possibly have ingested the drug orally (the defense theorized Jackson might have lined a juicebox with the drug). Considering Murray’s team was already planning to give a pig Propofol to suggest otherwise, one can only imagine what they’ll come up with now that they’ve got the summer to brainstorm.
