LA County Prosecutors To Receive National Award

  :lol: :lol: :lol:  lolol/

Next Tuesday, my friends and colleagues at the Center for Lawful Access and Abuse Deterrence (CLAAD, @claad_coalition) will recognize Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorneys David Walgren and Deborah Brazil for their excellence in the prosecution of Dr. Conrad Murray.  CLAAD is a national coalition dedicated to preventing prescription drug diversion, misuse, and abuse.

CLAAD will commend the LA County prosecutors for their national leadership in implementing the policy recommendations set forth in the National Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention Strategy (of which I am a primary author).  The National Strategy urges prosecutors to exercise moderation and to analyze facts in prescription drug cases from a medical perspective.  Some 30 non-profit organizations have endorsed this year’s National Strategy.

CLAAD will issue a news release on Tuesday, Jan. 17.  If you are interested in obtaining information about the award before then, please e-mail info[at]claad[dot]org.

Thanks for sharing this with us. I think this is proof that the court proceedings were real.

By the way - those two did a great job and deserve the award.

Blessings.

Propofol is not a prescription drug, loyalfan. Think about it. Why would the Center for Lawful Access and Abuse Deterrence, a national coalition dedicated to preventing prescription drug diversion, misuse, and abuse, be rewarding Prosecutors for convicting a man for administering a non-prescription drug?

Oh, it isn't? So it's an over-the-counter drug? Try asking for it at your local drugstore.

Maybe you should do some more research. It's not a controlled substance, and that's probably what you mean. Of course doctors "prescribe" it, only that you usually get it at a hospital for surgery or for sedation in intensive care, etc., so you don't get a prescription and then go to the pharmacy to get it yourself, only doctors and hospitals can order it. That is also why it's not a "controlled substance", because only doctors and hospitals can buy it.

Oh, and before I forget ... Murray also gave Michael other drugs like Lorazepam, Valium, and Midazolam in high doses and the cause of death was "acute propofol intoxication in combination with the contributory effects of benzodiazepines".

Propofol is not prescribed nor is it controlled. It is not a prescription drug and it is not a controlled substance and it is not an over the counter drug either. It is considered "medical supply" like any other anesthetic agent. Do not profess to know what I know.

It seems like the FDA was trying to get it controlled:
http://www.deadiversion.usdoj.gov/fed_regs/rules/2010/fr1027.htm

http://www.avma.org/onlnews/javma/apr11/110401b.asp

As far as I know they haven't gotten it into schedule IV (controlled) but sounds like it is being discussed.

FYI: it is a prescription medicine, as an anesthesiologist working in hospital setting would have to (usually) write a prescription to the pharmacy for it, but this isn't always the case, as propofol is sometimes just 'stashed' by the anesthesiology crew (I know, it sounds strange but it does depend on the clinic, etc for propofol's control or lack thereof).  Also, it is NEVER prescribed outside of hospital settings the same way as other drugs are (such as oxycodon, allergy medicines, cough medicines, etc to be taken at home).  So in a way, it is both prescribed and not prescribed.  Not controlled yet, but sounds like they are thinking about it.

Yes, they are trying to get it controlled, this has been going on for years now and the reason is ... Michael Jackson's death:

http://articles.nydailynews.com/2009-07-16/entertainment/17929149_1_sperm-donor-propofol-debbie-rowe

And yes, it is a prescription drug, just not in the sense of the patients physically getting a prescription and then buying it themselves as it is only used in hospitals and administered by doctors (nothing like "take 1 at night").

Considering Murray shouldn't be guilty, what is wonderful what they did? Murray either is guilty, which means he killed Michael, or he is not guilty and then what is great about this?

This means the trial was real. What is good in all this?

It may be part of/or supporting whatever sting(s) is/are going on, especially against drug regulation and laws and medical industry. 

I am not sure yet; I guess we will have to continue to research this and see how things unfold.  I have no doubt he is alive due to the other clues we have been given.

This is the first I’ve heard of this award :?  But while we’re speaking of “awards”  Branca is also receiving one, a Grammy.

http://www.legendarymichaeljackson.nl/?p=7343


Estate executor John Branca to receive 2012 GRAMMY Service Award
It was announced in December by the GRAMMY Foundation that John Branca, a partner in the law firm of Ziffren Brittenham LLP and former Board Chair of the GRAMMY Foundation’s sister charitable foundation, MusiCares®, will be the recipient of the 2012 Service Award at the GRAMMY Foundation®’s 14th Annual Entertainment Law Initiative® Luncheon & Scholarship Presentation on Friday, Feb. 10, 2012, at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. Daniel Ek, co-founder and CEO of Spotify, will deliver the keynote address at this year’s luncheon.

The Service Award was established in 2006 to recognize contributions by prominent entertainment attorneys that include outstanding service to individuals (pro bono or otherwise); leadership and participation with organizations that help advance the music community; and work to affect positive change that benefits the community overall. Past honorees include David Braun, Jay L. Cooper, John T. Frankenheimer, Joel A. Katz, Paul G. Marshall, and Al Schlesinger. The ELI luncheon is one of the most prestigious events held during GRAMMY® Week, a celebration that will culminate with the 54th Annual GRAMMY Awards at STAPLES Center on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2012. The telecast will be broadcast live on the CBS Television Network at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

“For close to 15 years, our GRAMMY Foundation Entertainment Law Initiative has created a forum where law students and seasoned attorneys can come together for research, dialogue and debate in the field of entertainment law,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy®, the GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares. “This year, we are pleased to have a digital visionary such as Daniel Ek join us for what will undoubtedly be an insightful and thought-provoking keynote address. It is also our pleasure to honor our good friend, former MusiCares Board Chair and steward of our current MusiCares 20th Anniversary Campaign, John Branca, with our Service Award. Both of these individuals are at the forefront of our industry.”

“It’s a really exciting time for the music industry,” said Ek. “Today we have the ability to listen to all the world’s music, instantly and wherever we are on the planet. That’s a pretty amazing idea and one which inspired me to launch Spotify. I’m a big supporter of the GRAMMY Foundation’s Entertainment Law Initiative and look forward to catching up with everyone in February.”

“I’m honored by the recognition and pleased to join such a distinguished group of past Service Award recipients,” added Branca. “Daniel is one of our industry’s real visionaries, and I looking forward his talk, as well as hearing about the topics presented in the winning student papers — they often prove to be cutting-edge topics in our industry.”

He has been at the forefront in the acquisition and sale of music publishing catalogs, including the acquisition of the Beatles catalog, ATV Music, for Michael Jackson, as well as its merger with Sony Music to create the world’s third-largest music publisher, Sony ATV Music. Branca has also been the architect of the sales of many major music catalogs, including Berry Gordy’s Jobete Music Co., the Kurt Cobain catalog, the Leiber and Stoller catalog, and the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization.
 
He serves on the board of trustees for Occidental College, participates as an active fundraiser for the UCLA athletic department and serves as the Co-Chairman of MusiCares' 20th Anniversary Campaign, a campaign in support of the leading industry charity devoted to helping members of the music community. Branca also serves on the Board of Trustees for the GRAMMY Museum and the Pauley Pavilion Renovation Campaign Committee.
 
ELI has three components: the Writing Competition, a GRAMMY Week ELI luncheon featuring a prominent keynote speaker, and a Legal Seminar series. The ELI Writing Competition invites law students to write a 3,000-word paper on a compelling legal topic facing the music industry today.

Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.); Clive Davis, chief creative officer of Sony Music Entertainment; Timothy J. Leiweke, president and CEO of AEG; will.i.am, GRAMMY Foundation Board member and frontman/producer of the multi-GRAMMY-winning group the Black Eyed Peas; and Strauss Zelnick, former president and CEO of BMG Entertainment, among others.
 
Once again, this year the Foundation added ELI Writing Competition workshops at prominent law schools around the country with the goal of helping students with their essays. ELI also continued its partnership this year with www.box.com to allow students to upload their submissions directly over the Internet. Box.com's mission is to make it easy for individuals and businesses to access, manage and share all their content online.

I believe the trial was real but for not for the murder of Michael Jackson.  Rather the death of Dr. Feelgood.
