  • PROSECUTION WRAPS UP KING CASE; JURY TO BEGIN DELIBERATIONS

              During closing arguments in the Don King fraud trial,
         Assistant U.S. District Attorney Christine Chung "described
         Don King ... as a liar who fraudulently collected $350,000
         in insurance after a 1991 fight was canceled," according to
         Richard Sandomir of the N.Y. TIMES.  Chung told the jury
         that King "had the motive, means and opportunity" to submit
         a "phony contract" to a Lloyd's of London syndicate.  Peter
         Fleming, one of King's attorneys, said in his closing, "I
         heard in the last five minutes the word 'lie' as many as 15
         times.  Do you see a single count of perjury against Don
         King?"  Sandomir writes that the jury "could begin
         deliberations tomorrow" (N.Y. TIMES, 6/30).
