Update: Witness Retracts Part of Testimony in Anna Nicole Smith Case

An expert in pain management, who testified Tuesday in the Anna Nicole Smith drug case that the late star's former doctor excessively prescribed her multiple opiates, is now retracting part of his testimony, says a new report.

The Associated Press reports that Dr. James Gagne on Wednesday withdrew part of his testimony that Dr. Sandeep Kapoor significantly increased the dosage of Smith's methadone doses, although he continued to testify that Dr. Kapoor gave the star excessive dosages of sedatives and opiates.

Dr. Gagne, a witness for the prosecution, said that the methadone doses were not a significant issue in the case and said he was misled by reports, according to the AP.
