In his closing argument in the federal wire fraid trial against boxing promoter Don King, King's defense attorney, Peter Fleming, asked for a mistrial regarding the prosecution's labeling of King as a "liar." According to the WASHINGTON POST, the motion was not granted, but the judge did warn the prosecution. Fleming spent the rest of his statement attacking the testimony of former and current King employees, noting they had been granted immunity." Prosecutor Paul Gardephe is expected to conclude his rebutall on Monday (Athelia Knight, WASHINGTON POST, 11/10). In New York, Richard Sandomir writes, "Don King's monthlong wire-fraud trial yesterday was reduced to one question: Whom do you trust, King or Joseph Maffia, his chief accuser" (N.Y. TIMES, 11/10). ESPN's Jimmy Roberts agrees: "The verdict will likely be decided on the basis of whether you believe Joseph Maffia or Don King" ("SportsCenter," 11/9).
