At first, the defense team for the doctor charged in Michael Jackson’s death said they wanted a speedy trial, even though both the judge and prosecution suggested they needed more time to prepare. Now they want to slow the game down a little. In a last-minute move, the defense asked the judge to delay the trial. The extra time would help them, they say, get ready for newly disclosed prosecution witnesses. Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said he was more concerned with justice for Dr. Conrad Murray than with the speed of the proceedings. Murray waived his right to a speedy trial yesterday and agreed to start new jury selection on September 8th. Lawyers estimated opening statements would begin September 20th.
