(Newser) – A California judge came down hard on Michael Jackson's personal physician today, suspending his license and ordering him to stand trial on manslaughter charges in the singer's death. That Conrad Murray must stand trial isn't a big surprise—even his attorneys had expected as much, notes the Los Angeles Times—but the license suspension doesn't bode well for him. The judge ruled that he'd heard enough in the six-day hearing to conclude that allowing Murray to keep the license "would constitute an imminent danger to society."
