The Texas Medical Board suspended Conrad Murray’s medical licence on Friday, not that he’s been making much use of it of late, given he is currently in jail having been found guilty last November of causing Michael Jackson’s death. A spokesman for the Board noted Murray’s current incarceration as a reason why the body hadn’t rushed to revoke the doctor’s licence.

Murray, the medic hired to care for Jackson in 2009 in the run up to the planned ‘This Is It’ shows in London, had medical licences in three US states – California, Texas and Nevada. He was allowed to continuing practicing in the latter two even after Jackson’s 2009 death and the subsequent charges of negligence, although Texas banned him from administering anaesthetics (the negligent administration of the drug propofol having caused Jackson’s demise).

California formally revoked Murray’s licence last month and Nevada was reportedly doing the same. The Texas Medical Board confirmed it had now likewise acted last week. As previously reported, Murray is currently planning to appeal both his conviction and sentence.
