King evidence

Prosecutors in the federal trial over the Rodney King beating have won the right to show the videotaped testimony of one of the accused policemen who said he saw a colleague hit Mr King on the head with a baton, AP reports from Los Angeles. The judge refused to delay the trial to review whether the tape was admissible. Judge John Davies said he would order closing arguments to continue through Saturday if necessary.
