Los Angeles -

A California court has scheduled arguments next month for Michael Jackson's doctor to appeal his involuntary manslaughter conviction.

The 2nd District Court of Appeal in Los Angeles set arguments in the case for January 9.

Former cardiologist Conrad Murray is appealing his 2011conviction on various grounds. He says a judge excluded jurors from hearing key evidence and should have sequestered jurors on the high-profile case.

The attorney general's office has said the issues cited by Murray's lawyers were not errors and are not a basis to give him a new trial.

Murray was convicted of causing Jackson's death by giving the singer an overdose of the anesthetic propofol on June 25, 2009.

Murray was released in October after serving nearly two years in jail. - Sapa-AP
