AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — The Texas doctor convicted in the death of pop superstar Michael Jackson has sued the state over stripping his right to practice medicine.

Conrad Murray accuses the Texas Medical Board of prematurely revoking his license. The former Houston cardiologist was released from a California jail this week after serving less than two years for involuntary manslaughter.

Murray was convicted in 2011 of giving Jackson a lethal overdose of a powerful anesthetic. But in a lawsuit filed in Austin this week, Murray claims his conviction isn’t final in California until his appeals are exhausted.

Murray states in an affidavit that he’s more than $400,000 in debt and can’t afford to pay court costs.

Texas Medical Board spokesman Jarrett Schneider said the agency cannot comment on pending litigation.
