LOS ANGELES, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- Prospective jurors in the Los Angeles trial of Dr. Conrad Murray were asked in a questionnaire if they followed earlier celebrity cases.

A pool of 145 prospects spent Friday filling out a 30-page questionnaire that asked if the jurors in the trials of O.J. Simpson, Robert Blake and Casey Anthony had influenced their views of the justice system.

The high level of sometimes-opinionated media coverage of Anthony's case earlier this year has been a cause of concern for Murray's legal team. The onetime personal physician of Michael Jackson faces a manslaughter charge in the singer's overdose death in 2009.

The Los Angeles Times said Saturday the 113 questions on the form also touched on the jurors' relationships with their own doctors, prescription drug use and addiction.

The attorneys on both sides will go over the questionnaires in preparation for formal jury selection beginning Sept. 23.
