KING TRIAL GETS TECHNICAL ON DAY TWO
Published October 12, 1995
ESPN's Jimmy Roberts, outside the federal courthouse in New York, where boxing promoter Don King's wire fraud trial entered its second day: "In the trial of such a colorful and bombastic man, Day Two was a tedious, sleep-inducing examination of insurance contract details and minutia." ESPN legal analyst Ken Caruso: "There were no fireworks in court today. But, each side made some subtle and important points" ("SportsCenter," 10/11). Prosecutors "tried to show [King] got the idea for the fraud scheme he is charged with after he ran into trouble collecting insurance for an earlier fight" (N.Y. TIMES, 10/12). NEWSDAY's Greg Logan: "Somehow, all the jurors managed to stay awake as both sides started down the paper trail" (NEWSDAY, 10/12).
