Judge bans attorneys' comments in doctor trial
LA judge in Jackson doctor trial orders attorneys from commenting about the case
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' A Los Angeles judge has ordered attorneys in the trial of Michael Jackson's doctor to not speak publicly about the case.

Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor said Friday that prosecutors and lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray were ordered not to comment outside of their respective legal teams.

Pastor didn't specify the reason for his decision. However, he called Matt Alford, a Houston lawyer who is a partner with Murray's attorney, Ed Chernoff, to return Friday afternoon.

Alford appeared on NBC's "The Today Show" on Friday, in which he said the jury was smart enough to know prosecutors haven't proven their case.

Murray has pleaded not guilty to involuntary manslaughter in connection with Jackson's death in June 2009.
