Lawyers for Dr. Conrad Murray want to talk to nearly three dozen so-called "hostile witnesses" who are set to testify in his upcoming trial.

Murray is charged with involuntary manslaughter in the death of pop star Michael Jackson.

Murray's attorney told a judge Wednesday subpoenas had been issued for 35 hostile witnesses, including all the members of Jackson's security team who were in the singer's home when he died in June 2009.

Jury selection in Murray's trial is set to begin March 24, with opening statements scheduled for May 9.
