A         IT DOES.

 

Q        DO YOU SEE THE BED LOCATED IN THE BEDROOM THAT HAS BEEN REFERENCED PREVIOUSLY THROUGHOUT THIS HEARING?

 

A         I DO.

 

Q         IS THE BATHROOM THAT THE DOCTOR STATED HE USED, IS THAT DEPICTED IN PEOPLE’S 9?

 

A         IT IS.

 

Q         CAN YOU POINT THAT OUT, PLEASE?

 

A         (INDICATING)

 

Q         YOU ARE INDICATING TO THE FAR RIGHT OF PEOPLE’S 9?

Q         THAT IS FOLLOWING HIS, ACCORDING TO HIS WORDS, TWO MINUTES IN THE RESTROOM?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   AFTER PROPER REFRESHMENT, HE NEEDS TO TESTIFY FROM HIS OWN MEMORY AFTER REFRESHING HIS RECOLLECTION, NOT FROM WHAT IS ON A TRANSCRIPT THAT HASN’T BEEN OFFERED IN EVIDENCE, UNLESS THEY WANT TO OFFER IT IN EVIDENCE.

A         HE DESCRIBED THAT HE HAD ONE HAND UNDER MR. JACKSON’S BACK, AND I DON’T RECALL IF IT WAS THE RIGHT OR LEFT HAND, AND THE OTHER HAND ON TOP OF HIS CHEST.   SO ONE HAND WOULD BE SUPPORTING HIS BACK, THE OTHER ON TOP OF HIS CHEST PUSHING DOWN, COMPRESSING.

 

Q         WAS DR. MURRAY ASKED AT THAT TIME, OR DID HE EXPLAIN WHY HE DIDN’T SIMPLY MOVE MICHAEL JACKSON ONTO THE FLOOR?

Q         WERE YOU EVER PROVIDED MEDICAL RECORDS AS IT RELATED TO DR. MURRAY’S TREATMENT OF –

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   RELEVANCE.

 

Q         BY MR. WALGREN:   — OF MICHAEL JACKSON –

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   OBJECTION.   RELEVANCE.

 

Q         BY MR. WALGREN — AT THE CAROLWOOD RESIDENCE?

 

THE COURT:   JUST A MINUTE.   I’M SORRY.

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   OBJECTION.   RELEVANCE, JUDGE.

 

THE COURT:   I’LL SUSTAIN THE OBJECTION.

 

MR. WALGREN:   MAY WE APPROACH, YOUR HONOR?

 

THE COURT:   YES.

 

 (THE FOLLOWING PROCEEDINGS WERE HELD AT SIDEBAR:)

 

 

MR. WALGREN:   THE PEOPLE FEEL IT IS HIGHLY RELEVANT, YOUR HONOR, WHETHER HE MAINTAINED MEDICAL RECORDS AS ANY COMPETENT DOCTOR WOULD.   THERE WAS A REQUEST MADE TO PROVIDE MEDICAL RECORDS.   AND THE MEDICAL RECORDS THAT WERE FORTHCOMING HAD ACTUALLY NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS TREATMENT IN 2009.   AND THE EXPERT WILL TESTIFY TO THE OBLIGATION TO KEEP MEDICAL RECORDS.   I THINK IT IS ABSOLUTELY RELEVANT.

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   THIS WITNESS NEVER OBTAINED ANY MEDICAL RECORDS SO HE CAN’T TESTIFY TO THAT.   IT IS HEARSAY. WHAT THIS WITNESS CAN TESTIFY TO IS REQUESTS FROM THE DEFENSE COUNSEL.   THE MEDICAL RECORDS WERE REQUESTED BY THE CORONER ALONE.   THEY WERE GIVEN TO THE CORONER.   NOW, WHETHER THEY ARE INADEQUATE OR NOT IS FOR THE CORONER TO TESTIFY TO, NOT THIS WITNESS.

 

MR. WALGREN:   THIS WITNESS ALSO REQUESTED MEDICAL RECORDS.

 

THE COURT:   MEDICAL RECORDS ARE BEING REQUESTED OF DR. MURRAY PERSONALLY, OR OF THE DEFENSE TEAM, OR WHAT?

 

MR. WALGREN:   I MEAN, THEY ARE DOING AN INTERVIEW WITH DR. MURRAY.

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   ACCORDING TO ORLANDO MARTINEZ, HE CALLED ME.   HE SAID HE LEFT A MESSAGE AND SCOTT SMITH ON VARIOUS ISSUES.   BUT THE MEDICAL RECORDS WERE NEVER REQUESTED FROM DR. MURRAY EXCEPT BY THE CORONER WHO RECEIVED THE MEDICAL RECORDS.   IF THEY ARE INSUFFICIENT OR THEY ARE INADEQUATE, OBVIOUSLY THAT IS RELEVANT BUT THIS IS NOT THE WITNESS TO TESTIFY ABOUT THEM.

 

THE COURT:   WELL, I WANT TO KNOW IF ONE OF THE LAPD DETECTIVES SPECIFICALLY ASKED DR. MURRAY.

 

MR. WALGREN:   THE REQUEST WAS MADE THROUGH HIS ATTORNEY.   I CAN CLARIFY THAT.

 

THE COURT:   I MEAN, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS IF THE DEFENSE ATTORNEY DOESN’T COMPLY AS OPPOSED TO DR. MURRAY.

 

MR. WALGREN:   THE POINT IS, HE WAS NOT PROVIDING MEDICAL RECORDS.   HE REQUESTED THEM.   HE WAS NOT PROVIDED THEM.   THAT IS THE EXTENT OF THE LINE OF QUESTIONING.

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   IF THE QUESTION IS, DID YOU EVER OBTAIN MEDICAL RECORDS WITH REGARD TO DR. MURRAY’S ANALYSIS, DR. MURRAY’S TREATMENT OF MICHAEL JACKSON AS PART OF YOUR INVESTIGATION, AND HE SAYS, “NO,” I UNDERSTAND HE WOULD KNOW THAT. BUT HE DOESN’T KNOW ABOUT ANY CONVERSATION I HAD WITH DR. MURRAY.   HE DIDN’T TALK TO DR. MURRAY SPECIFICALLY.   THE MEDICAL RECORDS — THERE WAS NEVER ANY AGREEMENT TO SEND MEDICAL RECORDS.   THEY WENT TO THE CORONER’S OFFICE.

 

THE COURT:   I’M SUSTAINING THE OBJECTION.   THE ISSUE, ONCE AGAIN, IS IT IS ONE THING IF THERE IS A DIRECT REQUEST OF DR. MURRAY AND THERE WERE NONCOMPLIANCE FOR WHATEVER REASON. IF IT IS BEING PHRASED AS A REQUEST TO THE DEFENSE TEAM, THERE MAY BE A HOST OF REASONS, STRATEGIC AND TACTICAL REASONS, WHY THE DEFENSE TEAM CHOSE NOT TO.

 

 (THE FOLLOWING PROCEEDINGS WERE HELD IN OPEN COURT:)

 

 

THE COURT:   SUSTAINED.

 

Q         BY MR. WALGREN:   DETECTIVE MARTINEZ, IN YOUR ROLE AS ONE OF LEAD INVESTIGATORS IN THIS CASE, HAVE YOU EVER SEEN MEDICAL RECORDS OF DR. MURRAY PERTAINING SPECIFICALLY TO THE CARE OF MICHAEL JACKSON AT THE CAROLWOOD RESIDENCE IN JUNE 2009, IN THE MONTHS PRECEDING THAT?

 

A         NO.

 

Q         DURING THIS INTERVIEW WITH DR. MURRAY, DID HE EVER MENTION TO YOU IN ANY MANNER THAT HE MADE PHONE CALLS DURING THE EVENING WHEN HE WAS CARING FOR MICHAEL JACKSON?

 

A         NO, HE DID NOT.

 

Q         DID HE EVER MENTION SENDING AN E-MAIL WHILE HE WAS CARING FOR MICHAEL JACKSON?

 

A         NO, HE DID NOT.

 

Q         DID HE EVER MENTION SENDING OR RECEIVING TEXT MESSAGES WHILE HE WAS CARING FOR MICHAEL JACKSON?

 

A         NO, HE DID NOT.

 

Q         AT SOME POINT IN THE INTERVIEW, DID DR. MURRAY INDICATE OR REFERENCE THAT HE HAD REQUESTED AN AUTOPSY BE PERFORMED?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         DID YOU FOLLOW UP THAT INFORMATION WITH DR. RICHELLE COOPER FROM UCLA TO SEE IF THAT WAS A TRUTHFUL STATEMENT?

 

A         I DID.

 

Q        WHAT DID DR. COOPER TELL YOU IN REGARD TO A REQUEST FOR AN AUTOPSY?

 

A         DR. COOPER SAID THAT WOULD BE HER AUTHORITY AND SHE WOULD NOT — SHE DID NOT AND WOULD NOT HAVE ASKED MR. MURRAY TO SIGN A DEATH CERTIFICATE.   AND SINCE SHE WAS THE PHYSICIAN IN CHARGE AND DID NOT KNOW THE CAUSE OF DEATH, SHE WANTED AN AUTOPSY.

 

Q         AND THAT WAS HER CALL?

 

A         YES.

 

MR. WALGREN:   THANK YOU.   NOTHING FURTHER, YOUR HONOR.

 

THE COURT:   MR. WALGREN, THANK YOU.

 

CROSS-EXAMINATION.

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   JUST A SECOND, JUDGE, PLEASE.

 (DEFENSE TEAM CONFER.)

 

 

CROSS-EXAMINATION

 

BY MR. CHERNOFF:

Q         DETECTIVE MARTINEZ, I’M GOING JUMP AROUND A LITTLE BIT BECAUSE I HAVE A LOT TO TALK ABOUT WITH YOU.

 

A         NO PROBLEM, SIR.

 

Q         YOU LEFT OUT A LOT IN THE DISCUSSION YOU HAD WITH DR. MURRAY, DIDN’T YOU?   YOU DIDN’T TALK ABOUT EVERYTHING?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         IN FACT, THE CONVERSATION THAT YOU HAD WITH DR. MURRAY WAS TWO HOURS AND 47 MINUTES.   DOES THAT SOUND ABOUT RIGHT?

 

A         THE TIME SAID — THE TIME ON THE TRANSCRIPT WAS 20 MINUTES.   HOWEVER, IT DID SEEM LIKE IT WAS A MUCH LONGER INTERVIEW.   WHEN I LISTENED TO THE AUDIOTAPE, I DID NOT LOOK AT THE START AND END TIME TO SEE EXACTLY HOW LONG, BUT IT WAS A PRETTY LONG INTERVIEW.

 

Q         OKAY.   IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE.   I WAS THERE WITH YOU.

 

A         YES.

 

Q         IT SEEMED A LOT LONGER TO ME.

 

A         YES.

 

Q         PRIOR TO TESTIFYING TODAY, YOU LOOKED AT YOUR NOTES?

 

A         YES, SIR.

 

Q         DID YOU READ THE TRANSCRIPT?

 

A         YES, I DID.

 

Q         THAT TRANSCRIPT WAS DONE OF THE INTERVIEW. IT WAS WRITTEN DOWN, HOPEFULLY VERBATIM, OF WHAT WAS DISCUSSED IN THE INTERVIEW, AT THE CONVERSATION ON THE 27TH OF JUNE, RIGHT?

 

A         YES, SIR.

 

Q         THAT WAS ACTUALLY PUT TOGETHER BY INTERNAL AFFAIRS?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         BASED ON THE RECORDING THAT YOU MADE OF THAT TRANSCRIPT?

 

A         YES, SIR.

 

Q         DID YOU READ THAT BEFORE TESTIFYING TODAY?

 

A         I DID.

 

Q         ALL RIGHT.   WE WILL GET INTO SOME OF THE SPECIFICS ABOUT WHAT YOU TESTIFIED TO WITH REGARD TO THAT CONVERSATION. FIRST, LET’S TALK ABOUT HOW THIS ALL TRANSPIRED.   YOU SAID THAT DR. MURRAY’S LAWYER, MR. PENA, CALLED YOU SOMETIME ON FRIDAY; IS THAT RIGHT?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         DID YOU HAPPEN TO CALL DR. MURRAY YOURSELF, OR DID SOMEONE CALL DR. MURRAY AND ASK TO INTERVIEW HIM?

 

A         I CALLED AND TEXTED HIM SEVERAL TIMES, LEFT MESSAGES, BUT NEVER SPOKE WITH HIM.

 

Q         YOU DID THAT ON FRIDAY?

 

A         ON THURSDAY AND FRIDAY.

 

Q         WHEN ON THURSDAY?

 

A         WHEN ON THURSDAY?

 

Q         YES.

 

A         AFTER I GOT HIS PHONE NUMBERS FROM DETECTIVES PORCHE AND BEHNKE, WHICH PROBABLY WOULD HAVE BEEN AROUND 2:00-ISH.

 

Q         2:00-ISH.   ARE YOU SURE ABOUT THAT?   DO YOU WANT TO LOOK AT YOUR NOTES AND FIGURE OUT IF THAT IS THE CASE?

 

A         IT WOULD BE AFTER I ARRIVED AT THE HOSPITAL. IF I COULD LOOK AT THE CHRONO, I COULD TELL YOU WHAT TIME I ARRIVED.   THE FIRST ONES I ENCOUNTERED WERE BEHNKE AND PORCHE.

 

Q         COULD IT HAVE BEEN LATER?

 

A         COULD HAVE BEEN.

 

Q         LET’S SAY, HYPOTHETICALLY, YOU ARRIVED AT 4:00.   LET’S ASSUME YOUR CHRONO SAYS THAT.

 

A         OKAY.

 

Q        YOU KNOW THAT DR. MURRAY WAS STILL AT THE HOSPITAL?

 

A         AS SOON AS I ARRIVED, I SPENT ABOUT – MYSELF AND DETECTIVE SMITH — SPENT ABOUT LESS THAN TEN MINUTES WITH DETECTIVES PORCHE AND BEHNKE.   AND THEN WE SPOKE WITH MR. ALVAREZ AND SENT PORCHE AND BEHNKE TO FIND DR. MURRAY FOR US.

 

Q         YOU KNEW DR. MURRAY WAS STILL IN THE HOSPITAL AT THAT TIME WHEN THEY WENT LOOKING FOR HIM?

 

A         THEY WERE UNABLE TO FIND HIM.

 

Q         YOU DO KNOW, RIGHT, THAT THE STATEMENT THAT DR. MURRAY MADE ON THE 27TH OF JUNE WAS HIS SECOND STATEMENT.   YOU DO KNOW THAT, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         HE MADE A STATEMENT AT THE HOSPITAL?

 

A         TO DETECTIVES PORCHE AND BEHNKE.

 

Q         IT WASN’T TWO-AND-A-HALF HOURS, BUT HE MADE A STATEMENT TO PORCHE AND BEHNKE, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q        AND THERE AT THE HOSPITAL, HE TOLD THEM THAT HE GAVE MICHAEL JACKSON A SEDATIVE?

 

A         I’D HAVE TO LOOK AT THEIR TYPED NOTES.

 

Q         IF THEIR NOTES STATED THAT, YOU WOULD HAVE NO REASON TO DISAGREE WITH THAT?

 

A         CORRECT.   I WASN’T PRESENT FOR THAT INTERVIEW.

 

Q         SO WHEN YOU SPOKE TO PORCHE AND BEHNKE AT THE HOSPITAL, DID THEY TELL YOU AT THAT TIME, “DR. MURRAY HAS MADE A STATEMENT”?

 

A         THEY TOLD US THEY HAD SPOKEN WITH HIM BRIEFLY AND THAT WAS IT.   THEY WERE NOT HANDLING THE CASE, SO IT WOULD NOT BE THEIR PLACE TO TAKE A STATEMENT.

 

Q         THEY TOLD YOU THEY HAD SPOKEN TO HIM, RIGHT?

 

A         YES, SIR.

 

Q         AND SOME TIME AFTER THAT POINT, LATER IN THE INVESTIGATION AT THE HOSPITAL, YOU CALLED DR. MURRAY YOURSELF?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         DID YOU GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO LEAVE A MESSAGE ON HIS VOICEMAIL, OR WAS HIS VOICEMAIL FULL?

 

A         I LEFT ONE MESSAGE, AND THEN IT FILLED UP. THAT IS WHEN I STARTED TEXT MESSAGING.

 

Q         IT WAS THE VERY NEXT DAY THAT YOU HEARD FROM MICHAEL PENA, RIGHT?

 

A         YES, SIR.

 

Q         YOU KNOW, AND YOU KNEW FROM TALKING TO MR. PENA HERE ON THE PHONE THAT HE WAS IN HOUSTON, TEXAS?

 

A         YES, SIR.

 

Q         IN FACT, DR. MURRAY HAD AN OFFICE IN HOUSTON, TEXAS?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         MICHAEL PENA SAID, “DR. MURRAY WANTS TO TALK TO YOU.   HE WANTS TO COME IN AND TALK”?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         “BUT WE HAVE TO FLY IN FROM HOUSTON, TEXAS.” HE TOLD YOU THAT, RIGHT?

 

A         YES, SIR.

 

Q         THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT MICHAEL PENA AND I DID THAT EVENING, FRIDAY EVENING.   WE CAME IN THAT EVENING, DIDN’T WE?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         THE NEXT MORNING, MICHAEL PENA CALLED YOU AND SAID, “LET’S MEET AND TALK WITH DR. MURRAY HERE AT THE HOTEL.”   HE TOLD THAT YOU, RIGHT?

 

A         YES, SIR.

 

Q         HE TOLD YOU, AS I RECALL, TWO O’CLOCK?

 

THE COURT:   WELL, I DON’T THINK YOU SHOULD BE TESTIFYING, MR. CHERNOFF.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   DO YOU REMEMBER HIM SAYING TWO O’CLOCK?

 

A         I DON’T RECALL TWO O’CLOCK.   I REMEMBER AGREEING FOR FOUR O’CLOCK.   I DON’T RECALL TWO O’CLOCK.

 

Q         WE DID MEET AT 4:00, BUT YOU MOVED IT TO 4:00, DIDN’T YOU?

 

A         I DON’T RECALL THAT, SIR.

 

Q         DO YOU REMEMBER THAT YOU HAD THINGS TO DO AT THE CAROLWOOD ADDRESS.   YOU WERE GOING TO BE LATE?

 

A         I DIDN’T RESPOND TO THE CAROLWOOD ADDRESS ON THAT DAY, BUT I DID DO OTHER STUFF RELATED TO THE CASE.

 

Q         NOW, PRIOR TO INTERVIEWING DR. MURRAY, YOU AND SCOTT SMITH HAD BEEN DOING SOME INVESTIGATION.   IS THAT FAIR TO SAY?

 

A         YES, SIR.

 

Q         YOU, FOR INSTANCE, HAD ALREADY SPOKEN TO FAHEEM MUHAMMAD?

 

A         YES, SIR.

 

Q         YOU HAD ALREADY SPOKEN TO ALBERTO ALVAREZ?

 

A         YES, SIR.

A         YES, SIR.

 

Q         SO YOU HAD THE CORONER’S NOTES.   YOU HAD ALL THAT INFORMATION FROM THE CORONER, RIGHT?

 

A         I DIDN’T HAVE A COPY OF THEIR NOTES.   I JUST HAD NAMES OF THE MEDICINE THEY HAD RECOVERED.

 

Q         YOU KNEW SCOTT SMITH DID ATTEND THE AUTOPSY. DO YOU RECALL THAT?

 

A         YES.

A         YES.

 

Q         YOU HAD ALL THIS INFORMATION BEFORE YOU SPOKE TO DR. MURRAY, RIGHT?

 

A         CORRECT.

A         I DID NOT.

 

Q         SO IT WAS YOUR INTERVIEW, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         IT WAS YOUR JOB TO TALK TO DR. MURRAY ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED, RIGHT?

A         NO, HE DID NOT.

 

Q         HE NEVER STOPPED THE INTERVIEW AND TURNED TO HIS LAWYER AND HAD TO LEAVE THE ROOM TO DISCUSS WHAT THE QUESTION WAS ABOUT.   YOU DON’T REMEMBER ANY OF THAT EVER HAPPENING?

 

A         I DO NOT.

 

Q         WE DIDN’T RUSH YOU IN YOUR QUESTIONING?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         IN FACT, AT THE END, I SAID, “IS THAT ALL YOU WANT TO TALK ABOUT?”   REMEMBER?   AND YOU SAID, YES, THAT WAS IT, RIGHT?

 

A         I REMEMBER, SIR.

 

Q         YOU CHOSE THE END OF THE INTERVIEW?

 

A         YES.

Q         NOW, YOU SAID IN YOUR DIRECT THAT DR. MURRAY DIDN’T MENTION ANY PHONE CALLS OR E-MAILS THAT HE MIGHT HAVE MADE THAT EVENING.   THAT’S RIGHT.   THAT’S WHAT YOU SAID, RIGHT?

 

A         OTHER THAN TO MICHAEL AMIR, CORRECT.

 

Q         YOU DIDN’T ASK HIM ANYTHING ABOUT ANY OTHER PHONE CALLS, DID YOU?

 

A         I DID NOT.

 

Q         YOU RECEIVED HIS PHONE LOGS LATER, A WEEK LATER, RIGHT?   YOU WANTED HIS CELL PHONE RECORD A WEEK LATER?

 

A         I DON’T REMEMBER HOW LONG LATER, BUT AFTERWARDS WE DID.

 

Q         YOU DIDN’T ASK HIM ABOUT ANY E-MAILS?

 

A         I DID NOT.

 

Q         YOU ARE NOT SUGGESTING, ARE YOU, THAT DR. MURRAY WOULD HAVE LIED IF YOU HAD ASKED HIM.   YOU JUST DIDN’T ASK HIM, RIGHT?

 

A         I DID NOT ASK THAT QUESTION.

 

Q         DO YOU RECALL DURING THE INTERVIEW ONE OF THE THINGS THAT YOU TESTIFIED ON DIRECT THAT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT HOW YOU TRIED TO VERIFY WHETHER DR. MURRAY HAD REQUESTED AN AUTOPSY.   DO YOU REMEMBER THAT?

 

A         I REMEMBER THAT.

 

Q         AND YOU DIDN’T SAY YOU VERIFIED OR DIDN’T VERIFY.   WHAT YOU SAID IS THAT DR. COOPER SAID, “THAT WAS MY CALL”?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         BUT AT THE TIME OF THE INTERVIEW, YOU ACTUALLY TOLD DR. MURRAY, “YOU KNOW WHAT.   THAT’S WHAT THEY SAID AT THE HOSPITAL, THAT YOU REQUESTED AN INTERVIEW”?

 

MR. WALGREN:   MISSTATES THE TESTIMONY.

 

THE COURT:   INTERVIEW OR AUTOPSY?

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   ISN’T THAT WHAT YOU SAID?

 

THE COURT:   I DON’T KNOW.   YOU SAID REQUESTED AN INTERVIEW OR REQUESTED AN AUTOPSY?

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   DID I SAY INTERVIEW?

 

THE COURT:   YES.

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   I’M SORRY.   NO, NO.

 

THE COURT:   REASK THE QUESTION, PLEASE.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   YOU TOLD DR. MURRAY THAT YOU HAD HEARD THAT HE HAD REQUESTED AN AUTOPSY?

 

A         I BELIEVE I TOLD HIM I HAD HEARD FROM OTHER SOURCES THAT HE HAD REQUESTED AN AUTOPSY.

 

Q         YOU HAVE NO REASON TO BELIEVE, OTHER THAN DR. COOPER, THAT DR. MURRAY — AND THIS IS A DOUBLE NEGATIVE.I KNOW YOU HATE THAT, JUDGE.

 

THE COURT:   THEN DON’T ASK IT.

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   I DON’T KNOW HOW TO ASK THIS.

 

THE COURT:   JUST DIRECTLY.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   YOU HAVE NO REASON TO BELIEVE THAT DR. MURRAY DID NOT ASK FOR AN AUTOPSY.   YOU DON’T KNOW WHETHER HE ASKED FOR AN AUTOPSY OR NOT, RIGHT?

 

A         WELL, ACCORDING TO DR. COOPER, HE DID NOT. IF YOU WOULD LIKE ME TO EXPLAIN WHO MY OTHER SOURCES ARE.

 

Q         BUT NOT ACCORDING TO OTHER SOURCES, RIGHT?

 

A         WELL –

 

Q         IS THAT A YES OR A NO?

 

A         IT IS NOT A YES OR NO QUESTION BECAUSE THE OTHER SOURCE IS FROM DR. MURRAY’S MOUTH.   I KNOW IT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE.

 

THE COURT:   IT DOESN’T AT ALL.

 

THE WITNESS:   MAY I ELABORATE?

 

THE COURT:   MR. CHERNOFF, MAY THE WITNESS EXPLAIN. I HAVE QUADRUPLE NEGATIVES HERE.   IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO COMPREHEND.   GO AHEAD.

 

THE WITNESS:   DETECTIVE PORCHE AND BEHNKE.   SO MY OTHER SOURCE WAS THE TWO DETECTIVES WHO SPOKE TO DR. MURRAY.   SO THAT IS WHAT I MEAN BY IT STILL CAME FROM HIM THAT HE HAD REQUESTED THE AUTOPSY, BUT I HEARD IT FROM THE DETECTIVES, NOT FROM HIS OWN MOUTH. DID YOU UNDERSTAND THAT, YOUR HONOR?

 

THE COURT:   YES.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   LET’S TALK ABOUT THE DAYS PRECEDING JUNE 25.   ACTUALLY, LET’S TALK ABOUT THE MONTHS PRECEDING. YOU STARTED THE WHOLE DIRECT EXAMINATION OF YOUR TESTIMONY BY STATING THAT MICHAEL AMIR IS THE ONE THAT DR. MURRAY SAID OFFERED HIM A JOB ON THE “THIS IS IT” TOUR, OR CALLED HIM UP ON BEHALF OF MICHAEL.   IS THAT WHAT YOU TESTIFIED TO?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         YOU AREN’T LEAVING ANYTHING OUT OF THERE, RIGHT?   MAYBE?

 

A         I DON’T THINK SO.

 

Q         DO YOU RECALL THAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU ABOUT A PERIOD OF TIME WHEN MICHAEL JACKSON VISITED LAS VEGAS AND CALLED DR. MURRAY, HOPING TO GET HIM TO OBTAIN A DOCTOR FOR HIM.   DO YOU REMEMBER THAT CONVERSATION?

 

A         OH, YES, BUT THAT IS NOT ONE OF THE QUESTIONS I WAS ASKED ABOUT.   I REMEMBER THAT CONVERSATION.

 

Q         DO YOU REMEMBER THIS DOCTOR THAT MICHAELJACKSON WANTED WAS TO PROVIDE MICHAEL JACKSON PROPOFOL. DO YOU REMEMBER THAT?

 

A         I DO.

 

Q         AND THAT DOCTOR WHO CAME TO THE SCENE TO GIVE MICHAEL JACKSON PROPOFOL MADE MICHAEL JACKSON SO HAPPY, DO YOU RECALL THAT MICHAEL JACKSON OFFERED THEM BOTH A JOB ON THE “THIS IS IT” TOUR?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         THAT DOCTOR’S NAME WAS DR. DAVID ADAMS?

 

A         THAT IS CORRECT.

 

Q         THERE WAS NO, I GUESS, INTERVIEWING BY DR. MURRAY FOR THAT JOB.   THAT WAS SOMETHING THAT MICHAEL JACKSON OFFERED HIM AT THAT TIME.   THAT IS WHAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU, RIGHT?   IS THAT WHAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU?

 

A         YOU ARE CORRECT.   I REMEMBER AFTERWARDS IN THE OFFICE, THAT IS WHEN HE FIRST MENTIONED THE TOUR.THAT IS CORRECT.

 

Q         YOU HAD IMPLIED IN FRONT OF THE JUDGE THAT DR. MURRAY TOOK THIS JOB, OR HE TOLD YOU HE TOOK THIS JOB, BECAUSE HE WAS HIRED TO GIVE PROPOFOL TO MICHAEL JACKSON.   IS THAT YOUR IMPLICATION?

 

A         I –

 

MR. WALGREN:   OBJECTION.   ARGUMENTATIVE.   I’M OBJECTING.   ARGUMENTATIVE.

 

THE COURT:   LET’S JUST TONE IT DOWN, PLEASE.   THE OBJECTION IS SUSTAINED.   THE LAST ANSWER IS STRICKEN.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   IN FACT, DR. MURRAY SAID TO YOU THAT HE DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS.   HE FOUND OUT ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSON’S DESIRE FOR PROPOFOL AFTER THE FACT. THAT’S WHAT HE TOLD YOU?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         YOU LEFT THAT OFF IN YOUR TESTIMONY.   WHY?

 

A         I’M JUST ANSWERING QUESTIONS THAT ARE POSED.

 

Q         NOW YOU ARE ANSWERING MINE.

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         YOU DO RECALL DR. MURRAY TELLING YOU THAT HE WAS WORRIED ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSON’S USE OF THIS PROPOFOL?

 

A         YES.

 

Q        AND YOU DO RECALL DR. MURRAY SAYING TO YOU, “I NEED TO TRY TO FIND A WAY TO GET HIM OFF OF THIS. THIS WAS NOT NATURAL, WAS NOT NORMAL”?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         YOU DO REMEMBER THAT DR. MURRAY FIRST STARTED PROVIDING MICHAEL JACKSON PROPOFOL BECAUSE MICHAEL JACKSON ASKED FOR IT SPECIFICALLY OVER AND OVER, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         BECAUSE HE WAS FRIGHTENED ABOUT THIS TOUR. HE COULDN’T SLEEP, AND HE NEEDED TO SLEEP.   AND FINALLY, DR. MURRAY ACQUIESCED.   HE AGREED, RIGHT?

 

A         CAN YOU REPHRASE THE QUESTION.

 

Q        MICHAEL JACKSON CONVINCED DR. MURRAY TO GIVE HIM PROPOFOL.   THAT’S WHAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU, RIGHT?

 

A         I DON’T REMEMBER HIM SAYING CONVINCED, BUT I KNOW HE ASKED HIM TO GIVE IT TO HIM.

 

Q         DO YOU REMEMBER DR. MURRAY TELLING YOU   MICHAEL JACKSON KNEW PROPOFOL?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         HE HAD A NICKNAME FOR PROPOFOL, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         HE CALLED IT HIS MILK?

 

A         RIGHT.

 

Q         HE HAD A NICKNAME FOR LIDOCAINE.   DO YOU REMEMBER THAT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         HE CALLED IT HIS ANTI-BURN, RIGHT?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         HE WAS FAMILIAR WITH IT.   YOU KNOW DR. DAVID ADAMS SAID THE SAME THING, RIGHT?

 

A         I KNOW.

 

Q         DR. DAVID ADAMS SAID HE CALLED IT THAT, TOO?

 

A         I DID NOT INTERVIEW DR. DAVID ADAMS.

 

Q         WHO DID?

 

A         SCOTT SMITH, DAN.

 

Q         AND HE KNEW AND MICHAEL JACKSON KNEW ALL ABOUT PROPOFOL, THE USE OF PROPOFOL, THE NICKNAMES.   ALL OF THAT WAS BEFORE DR. MURRAY CAME ON THE SCENE?

 

MR. WALGREN:   OBJECTION.   CALLS FOR SPECULATION.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   ISN’T THAT WHAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU?

 

THE COURT:   OVERRULED ON THAT BASIS.

 

THE WITNESS:   YES, THAT’S WHAT HE SAID.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   NOW, I WANT TO MAKE SURE WE UNDERSTAND THIS INTERVIEW HAPPENED TWO DAYS AFTER MICHAEL JACKSON’S DEATH, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         IT WAS DURING THIS INTERVIEW AS WELL IN ADDITION TO WHAT WE HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU THAT MICHAEL JACKSON OFTEN ASKED IF HE COULD PUSH IN THE PROPOFOL HIMSELF.   HE TOLD YOU THAT, RIGHT?

 

MR. WALGREN:   DO WE HAVE A PAGE REFERENCE?

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   OKAY.

 

THE COURT:   TAKE A MOMENT, PLEASE.

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   SURE.

 

Q         PAGE 44 IN THE TRANSCRIPT.   DO YOU HAVE THE TRANSCRIPT IN FRONT OF YOU?

 

A         I DO.

 

Q         PAGE 44.

 

A         (EXAMINING DOCUMENT)

 

THE COURT:   THE PEOPLE WANTED THE PAGE.   ARE YOU ON IT?

 

MR. WALGREN:   YES.   THANK YOU, YOUR HONOR.

 

THE COURT:   SO YOU CAN ASK THE QUESTION, MR. CHERNOFF.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   ALL RIGHT.   DOES THAT REFRESH YOUR RECOLLECTION?

 

A         YES, IT DOES.

 

Q         MY JACKSON TOLD DR. MURRAY, ACCORDING TO DR. MURRAY, HE LIKED TO PUSH IT IN HIMSELF, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         AND HE TOLD DR. MURRAY THAT OTHER DOCTORS LET HIM DO THAT?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         BUT THAT DR. MURRAY SAID, “I TOLD HIM I WOULDN’T LET HIM DO THAT”?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         THREE DAYS BEFORE MICHAEL JACKSON DIED, DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU THAT HE WAS TRYING TO WEAN MICHAEL JACKSON OFF OF THE DRUG, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         HE TOLD YOU THAT, YOU HAD SAID IN YOUR TESTIMONY, THAT ON THE DAY THAT MICHAEL JACKSON DIED, AND IF I JUMP AROUND, PLEASE FORGIVE ME.   I’LL GET BACK THERE.   BUT ON THE DAY THAT MICHAEL JACKSON DIED, HE GAVE HALF HIS NORMAL AMOUNT?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         YOU SAID THAT WAS 25 MILLIGRAMS, ACCORDING TO DR. MURRAY, RIGHT?

 

A         ACCORDING TO DR. MURRAY.

 

Q         THAT WAS NOT THE FIRST TIME HE HAS GIVEN HALF THE NORMAL AMOUNT, RIGHT?

 

A         I DON’T RECALL HIM TELLING ME IF THAT WAS THE FIRST TIME.

 

Q         THREE DAYS PRIOR, RIGHT?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU THAT HE TRIED 25 MILLIGRAMS ON THAT DAY?

 

MR. WALGREN:   YOUR HONOR, PAGE REFERENCE?

 

THE COURT:   PLEASE.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   DO YOU REMEMBER THAT OR NOT?

 

A         I RECALL HIM SAYING THAT HE HAD GIVEN A LESSER AMOUNT.   I DO NOT RECALL HIM SAYING HE HAD GIVEN 25 MILLIGRAMS.

 

Q         AND THE DAY BEFORE THE 25TH, HE GAVE HIM NO PROPOFOL AT ALL?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         DO YOU REMEMBER THAT?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         AND MICHAEL JACKSON SLEPT.   THAT IS WHAT DR. TOLD YOU.   HE SLEPT THE DAY BEFORE WITHOUT PROPOFOL?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU IT MADE HIM FEEL OPTIMISTIC THAT HE COULD HELP MICHAEL JACKSON.   DO YOU REMEMBER THAT CONVERSATION?

 

A         THAT I’D HAVE TO REFRESH MY RECOLLECTION.

 

Q         YOU DO REMEMBER, THOUGH, THE DAY OF THE 25TH, THE MORNING, EARLY MORNING OF THE 25TH, THAT DR. MURRAY AND MICHAEL JACKSON WERE GOING TO ATTEMPT THIS AGAIN. THEY WERE GOING TO TRY TO DO THIS WITHOUT PROPOFOL.   DO YOU REMEMBER THAT CONVERSATION?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         AND IT WAS ONLY AFTER REPEATED ATTEMPTS, DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU REPEATED ATTEMPTS WITH LORAZEPAM, RIGHT?

 

A         HE TOLD US HE USED LORAZEPAM.

 

Q         WHICH YOU NOW KNOW WAS FOUND IN MICHAEL JACKSON, RIGHT?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         THAT IS THE TRUTH.   LORAZEPAM WAS IN MICHAEL JACKSON, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         HE TOLD YOU HE TRIED MIDAZOLAM, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         WHICH YOU NOW KNOW WAS FOUND IN MICHAEL JACKSON?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         IN A SMALL AMOUNT, BUT IT WAS THERE SOMEWHERE?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         BUT AFTER REPEATED ATTEMPTS, MICHAEL JACKSON WOULDN’T SLEEP.   THAT IS WHAT HE TOLD YOU?

 

A         THAT’S WHAT HE TOLD ME.

 

Q         IT WAS MICHAEL JACKSON WHO BEGGED, “PLEASE. I’LL HAVE TO CANCEL MY REHEARSAL.   SEVEN DAYS OUT FROM THE TOUR.   I DON’T WANT TO CANCEL.   I HAVE TO GET SOME SLEEP.” THAT IS WHAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU HAPPENED IN THAT BEDROOM, RIGHT?

 

A         YES, MR. JACKSON’S BEDROOM.

 

Q         THEN AND ONLY THEN DID DR. MURRAY PROVIDE THE 25 MILLIGRAMS, RIGHT?

 

MR. WALGREN:   OBJECTION.   CALLS FOR SPECULATION.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   IS THAT WHAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU?

 

THE COURT:   WITH THAT IN MIND, IS THAT WHAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU?

 

THE WITNESS:   YES.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   AND NOW DR. MURRAY NEVER TOLD YOU THAT HE GAVE MR. JACKSON A DRIP ON THE 25TH, DID HE?

 

A         I BELIEVE THAT WHEN HE WAS EXPLAINING HOW HE DID IT, HE SAID HE WOULD GIVE HIM A SHOT TO PUT HIM UNDER AND USE A DRIP INFUSION.   IF YOU LET ME LOOK AT MY NOTES, I’LL TELL YOU THE PAGE NUMBER.

 

Q         I’M MORE INTERESTED IN THE TRANSCRIPT.

 

A         THE NOTES HAVE THE PAGE NUMBER OF THE TRANSCRIPT.

 

Q         OKAY.   SURE.   GO AHEAD.

 

A         (EXAMINING DOCUMENT)   IF YOU LOOK ON PAGE 62, COUNSEL, THE QUESTION I ASKED IS LINES 12 THROUGH 16, AND HIS ANSWER IS 17 THROUGH 20.

 

Q         WHAT HE TOLD YOU IS WHAT HE DID NORMALLY FOR THE 50 DAYS PRIOR TO THAT TIME.   THAT HE USED A DRIP, RIGHT?   THAT IS WHAT HE NORMALLY DID, RIGHT?

 

A         MY QUESTION TO HIM WAS, “HOW DO YOU DO IT?”

 

Q         AND HE TOLD THAT YOU, “NORMALLY, I GIVE A DRIP AFTER A SHOT OF 50 MILLIGRAMS.” DO YOU REMEMBER THAT CONVERSATION?

 

A         I DON’T SEE “NORMALLY.”

 

Q         LET ME ASK YOU THIS, SINCE YOU HAVE THE TRANSCRIPT IN FRONT OF YOU.   IS IT YOUR TESTIMONY TODAY, RIGHT NOW, THAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU AT OUR INTERVIEW THAT HE GAVE MICHAEL JACKSON A DRIP OF PROPOFOL ON THE 25TH. IS THAT YOUR TESTIMONY?

 

A         THAT IS THE WAY I RECALL IT, SIR.

 

Q         THAT IS YOUR TESTIMONY TODAY?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         LET ME SHOW YOU DEFENSE C.   THIS IS ALREADY MARKED.   DID YOU PREPARE THAT DOCUMENT YOURSELF?

 

A         YES, I DID.

 

Q         IN THAT DOCUMENT IS A CHRONOLOGY OF THE DRUGS, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         IS THAT RIGHT?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         IN THAT CHRONOLOGY, YOU ALSO ONCE AGAIN SAID THAT DR. MURRAY SAID HE GAVE A DRIP?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         SO THEN YOU THOUGHT HE SAID THAT, TOO?

 

A         YES, I DID.

 

Q         IN DEFENSE C, IN THIS CHRONOLOGY — I’M SORRY.   WHEN WAS THIS CREATED?

 

A         AFTER THE INTERVIEW.   IT WAS A CHRONOLOGY THAT I TYPE UP TO GIVE TO THE DEPARTMENT OF CORONER AS TO DR. MURRAY’S STATEMENT OF WHAT HE PROVIDED, TIMES AND AMOUNTS.

 

Q         THAT WAS MY NEXT QUESTION.   YOU GAVE IT TO THE CORONER?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         DID YOU GIVE THE CORONER ANYTHING ELSE BESIDES THAT?   DID YOU GIVE HIM THE TRANSCRIPT?

 

A         YES, I DID.

 

Q         DO YOU REMEMBER A CONVERSATIONS BEING HAD WITH DR. MURRAY DURING THAT TWO-AND-A-HALF HOURS ABOUT A WITNESSED ARREST, A DEFINITION OF WHAT WITNESSED ARREST WAS?

 

A         NO.   ABOUT THE DEFINITION, I DON’T RECALL THAT.   I APOLOGIZE.

 

Q         YOU DON’T REMEMBER THAT, OR YOU SAID YOU READ YOUR TRANSCRIPT.   IS THERE ANYTHING IN THE TRANSCRIPT ABOUT THAT THAT YOU RECALL?

 

A         I REMEMBER DR. MURRAY SAYING THAT HE BELIEVED THAT IT HAD JUST HAPPENED BECAUSE HE WAS ONLY GONE FOR A COUPLE MINUTES.

 

Q         DO YOU REMEMBER DR. MURRAY TELLING YOU THAT TO THAT EXTENT IT WAS A WITNESSED ARREST?

 

MR. WALGREN:   PAGE AND LINE?

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   HE WAS ONLY GONE FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME?

 

MR. WALGREN:   MAY I HAVE A PAGE REFERENCE, PLEASE?

 

THE COURT:   PLEASE.

 

 

 (DEFENSE TEAM CONFER.)

 

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   PAGE 74.

 

THE WITNESS:   (EXAMINING DOCUMENT)   THAT DOES REFRESH MY RECOLLECTION.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   YOU RECALL THEN TALKING TO HIM ABOUT WHAT HE CONSIDERS A WITNESSED ARREST?

 

A         A WITNESSED STATE, YES.

 

Q         HE CONSIDERS A WITNESSED ARREST IN THE SENSE THAT HE HAD NOT BEEN GONE FOR A LONG TIME BEFORE HE GOT BACK TO THE BED.   NOT THAT HE WATCHED IT OCCUR, RIGHT?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   MAY I HAVE A SECOND, JUDGE?

 

THE COURT:   PLEASE.

 

 

 (DEFENSE TEAM CONFER.)

 

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   WE ARE JUST GOING THROUGH THE TRANSCRIPT, JUDGE.   I’LL HAVE MR. LOW DO IT TO SPEED THINGS UP.

 

THE COURT:   THANK YOU.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   YOU WERE AWARE, ARE YOU, THAT THE CORONER, WHILE YOU WERE DOING AN INVESTIGATION, THE CORONER WAS DOING THEIR OWN INVESTIGATION?

 

A         CORONER’S INVESTIGATOR WERE JOINT.   WE WERE SHARING INFORMATION.

 

Q         THEY WERE TALKING TO PEOPLE.   THEY WERE TALKING TO DOCTORS.   THEY WERE TALKING TO WITNESSES AND SO WERE YOU?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         BY ANY CHANCE, DID YOU HAVE OCCASION TO TALK TO ANY DOCTORS, OR WAS IT JUST THE CORONER THAT DID THAT?

 

MR. WALGREN:   OBJECTION.   RELEVANCE.   BEYOND THE SCOPE.

 

THE COURT:   SUSTAINED.   THAT IS DISCOVERY.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   DID YOU HEAR IS MY QUESTION.   DID YOU TAKE WHAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU ABOUT MICHAEL JACKSON’S PAST HISTORY WITH PROPOFOL, SELF-INJECTING, ALL OF THAT, DID YOU TAKE THAT ANY FURTHER INTO THAT CONVERSATION WITH DR. MURRAY?

 

MR. WALGREN:   OBJECTION.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   DID YOU ASK ANYBODY ABOUT THAT WHEN YOU DID YOUR INVESTIGATION?

 

MR. WALGREN:   OBJECTION.   RELEVANCE.   BEYOND THE SCOPE.

 

THE COURT:   SUSTAINED.

 

Q         BY MR. CHERNOFF:   THE SKIN LOTION THAT YOU FOUND, THAT WAS BENOQUIN?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         THE I.V. FOR HYDRATION THAT YOU SAID THAT DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU THAT HE GAVE TO MICHAEL JACKSON, HE ALSO TOLD YOU THAT WHAT HE GAVE HIM WAS SALINE?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         YOU TESTIFIED THAT SPEAKING OF IT BEING YOUR INTERVIEW, YOU SAID YOU ASKED THE DOCTOR IF THERE WERE ANY MEDICAL BAGS OR ANY MEDICAL ITEMS AT THE RESIDENCE, RIGHT?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         AND YOU TESTIFIED THAT ONE OF THE THINGS YOU DID IS YOU WENT BACK TO THE RESIDENCE, BACK TO CAROLWOOD ON THE 29TH TO LOOK FOR THOSE ITEMS.   DID YOU GO?

 

A         YES.

 

Q         IT WAS NOT JUST YOU.   IT WAS ALSO PEOPLE FROM THE CORONER’S OFFICE?

 

A         CORRECT.

 

Q         SO TWO DAYS AFTER THE FACT, YOU WENT BACK TO CAROLWOOD TO LOOK FOR THE ITEMS THAT DR. MURRAY SAID WERE THERE?

 

A         RIGHT.

 

THE COURT:   TWO DAYS?

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   TWO DAYS.

 

Q         TWO DAYS AFTER THE INTERVIEW, YOU WENT BACK TO LOOK FOR THESE ITEMS?

A         YES.

 

Q         AND IN EXACTLY THE PLACE DR. MURRAY TOLD YOU YOU WOULD FIND THEM, RIGHT?

 

A         YES.

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   I’LL PASS THE WITNESS.   WAIT.   NEVER MIND.   HOLD ON A SECOND.   I HAVE A QUESTION HERE.

 

 (DEFENSE TEAM CONFER.)
