The Nation : Donovan Defense Rests

April 22, 1987

Defense lawyers in the larceny and fraud trial in New York of former Labor Secretary Raymond J. Donovan rested their case without calling a witness.

Collins dismissed charges against one other man. Donovan and his lawyers said they decided not to present witnesses because they believed the prosecution failed to prove its case.
