April 2, 2010 12:00:00 AM PDT
Dr. Conrad Murray, the doctor accused in the death of Michael Jackson, is fighting efforts to suspend his medical license.California's attorney general has filed a bid to suspend Murray's license, pending trial.

Officials in Nevada have filed a complaint, saying Murray failed to mention delinquent child support payments on applications to renew his medical license.

Murray's attorneys say financially, the doctor is "hanging on by a thread."

Court records show Murray had serious financial problems when he signed on in May at $150,000 per month to keep Jackson healthy through a series of comeback shows planned in London.

The doctor has been charged with involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson's death.
