Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter trial began its second day at 8:45 a.m. PST in Los Angeles. Here's a quick catch-up from Monday:

  • "This Is It" director Kenny Ortega testified that he was "shocked" by Conrad Murray's treatment of Michael Jackson -- that Murray pushed for Jackson to rehearse while Ortega felt he needed to rest.
  • The defense argues that Jackson gave himself Propofol in secret and that killed him.
  • The prosecution argues that Murray was "grossly negligent" in his care for Jackson.
  • Paul Gongaware, co-CEO of AEG Live Concerts West, testified that Jackson asked if he could bring Dr. Conrad Murray on tour as his personal physician.

Tuesday morning, Gongaware's testimony continued. At 9:15 a.m., Kathy Jorrie was called to the stand. Jorrie is the lawyer who drafted a contract (at the request of AEG Live) for Murray to go on tour with Jackson as his personal physician.

  • Jorrie says Murray requested a CPR machine for Jackson for his tour, which she found odd.
  • She says: “He [Murray] volunteered … that Michael Jackson was ‘perfectly healthy, [in] excellent condition,’” including saying so the day before Jackson died.
  • She said the contract was not signed by all parties -- no payment was made to Murray by AEG.

On Monday, Gongaware said:

-That Murray said he would need an assistant, equipment and housing in London, but told Gongaware he would not need to worry about not being licensed in London.

-That Murray was “very engaged” at a meeting about Michael’s well-being.

-That Murray required $5 million to be Jackson’s personal physician for the year because he would have to close his clinics. Gongaware told him “there was no way that was going to happen … Michael couldn’t afford it.”
