Mention of 9/11 Barred in Kerik Trial; Giuliani Testimony in Doubt
The ruling effectively prohibits the testimony of Mayor Giuliani, for reasons noted by Joe Biden.
At the hearing the judge also slammed the defense for trying to arrange publication in the Washington Times, via the head of Kerik's legal defense fund, of information that's supposed to be under legal seal. Kerik denies knowledge of the fund head's actions. The judge ordered a sworn affidavit from Kerik to that effect by Monday, and seemed to threaten him with jail if he was found to be horsing around.
