P V CM SEPT 22ND 2011

APPEARANCES: DEFENDANT CONRAD ROBERT MURRAY, NOT PRESENT, REPRESENTED BY EDWARD M. CHERNOFF, J. MICHAEL FLANAGAN, AND NAREG GOURJIAN;

 

PEOPLE REPRESENTED BY DAVID WALGREN AND DEBORAH BRAZIL, DEPUTIES DISTRICT ATTORNEY

 

THE COURT:   WE DID DISCUSS THE JURY QUESTIONNAIRE YESTERDAY AFTERNOON, AND THE COURT AND COUNSEL AGREED WE WOULD PUT OVER FURTHER DISCUSSIONS TO TODAY AT ONE O’CLOCK.   SO ARE THERE ANY MATTERS TO BE ADDRESSED IN OPEN COURT BY THE PEOPLE?

 

MR. WALGREN:   NO.   WE WERE JUST GOING TO ASK IF, AS WE DID YESTERDAY, WE COULD HAVE A FEW MINUTES WITH DEFENSE COUNSEL TO SEE IF WE HAVE ANY AGREEMENTS.

 

THE COURT:   IS THAT FINE WITH THE DEFENSE?

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   YES, PLEASE.

 

THE COURT:   DR. MURRAY IS BEING REPRESENTED 977?

 

MR. CHERNOFF:   YES.

 

MR. FLANAGAN:   YES.

 

THE COURT:   IT IS THE DR. MURRAY CASE.   THE COURT   DID “BLUNDER” YESTERDAY BY MISCHARACTERIZING THE DEFENDANT.   I AGAIN APOLOGIZE TO DR. MURRAY AND TO EVERYONE ELSE FOR THAT MISTAKE. SO, COUNSEL, LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU ARE READY TO RESUME.   WE WILL HAVE FURTHER PROCEEDINGS IN CHAMBERS. I DON’T ANTICIPATE COMING BACK ON THE RECORD UNTIL TOMORROW MORNING AT EIGHT O’CLOCK, AT WHICH TIME WE WILL RESUME WITH THE JURY SELECTION.   THANK YOU.

 

 (RECESS.)
