Med board: Jackson doctor still has Nevada license

LAS VEGAS (AP) - A medical board official says Michael Jackson's personal physician still has a license to practice in Nevada.

Nevada Board of Medical Examiners chief Douglas Cooper tells The Associated Press the board is reviewing a California judge's order suspending Dr. Conrad Murray's ability to practice in that state.

But Cooper says Nevada hasn't made a decision yet.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor on Tuesday called it a public safety issue to prevent Murray from practicing medicine pending his involuntary manslaughter trial in Jackson's death.

Murray lives in Las Vegas and has licenses to practice in Nevada and Texas.

His lawyer, Charles Peckham in Houston, says he hopes Texas follows Nevada's lead, reviews Murray's case and talks with patients before making a decision.
