1 THE COURT: Good morning, everybody. If you would
2 all be seated.
3 Yes, Mr. Undenbaum.
4 MR. LINDENBAUM: Your Honor, I happened to see a
5 news broadcast last night on channel S and heard a
6 broadcast on the radio -1 think it was WFAN - on the way
7 home last night about a football player, LeShon Johnson,
8 who plays (or the Giants who was diagnosed yesterday - or
9 it was announced yesterday-be was diagnosed with
10 rymphoma.
11 What was significant is that all of the broadcasts
121 heard, and including the New York Times article on it
13 this morning, I haven't seen any other papers describe it.

15 Team doctors detected an abnormality after a
16 routine chest X-ray last month and in subsequent tests
17 determined Johnson, 27, had a cancerous tumor.
18 That's excerpted from the article.
19 I would simply ask the Court to give an
20 appropriate instruction to the jury. I'm not suggesting
21 that the plaintiff has done anything to engender this, of
22 course, but because it was a football player, because it
23 has been made public, we have eight people on the jury.
24 How many of them listen to sports broadcasts or listen to
25 the news, this happened to have been a news item I heard as
