NEW YORK (AP) — Mayor
Rudolph Giuliani was booted out of
court—and said he deserved it.
The mayor, a former federal pros
ecutor, was in state Supreme Court on
Monday for jury duty in a personal
injury case involving an 85-year-old
woman who fell and broke her hip.

Giuliani presumed one or both law
yers didn’t want a mayor and former

over sex site
LOS ANGELES (AP) —Dr. Ruth
Westheimer is making sex look like
child’s play on the Internet with a de

promote sex-related material on the
World Wide Web, the company said
in a suit filed Monday.
A representative for Westheimer
