Murray's attorney Valerie Wass and Supervising Deputy Attorney General Victoria B. Wilson filed letters with the court Tuesday waiving arguments unless justices have specific questions. An appeals court in Los Angeles had set arguments in former cardiologist Conrad Murray's appeal for Jan. 9.

Wass says the decision was made because both sides had filed extensive papers laying out the grounds for the appeal and why prosecutors believe it should be denied.

Murray was convicted in 2011 of giving Jackson a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol. He was released in October after serving two years in jail.
