A medical student said one of her UCLA professors was on the list, but she was allowed to remain when she said she would have no bias about the testimony.

Murray is serving a prison term after being convicted of involuntary manslaughter in Jackson’s death from an overdose of propofol. Jackson died in his bed in June 2009 at the age of 50.
Complicating the case is the fact that neither Jackson nor AEG had signed Murray’s $150,000 a month contract. Jackson died before Murray was paid.
Katherine Jackson’s lawyers contend AEG was negligent in failing to investigate Murray’s qualifications before hiring him.
