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).
