Deliberations resumed Thursday when a juror in the Rodney G. King civil rights trial rejoined the rest of the panel, ending a recess called Wednesday because of the juror's sudden illness.

Former Panamanian strongman Manuel A. Noriega's drug and racketeering trial in Miami again was interrupted by illness. A juror became sick during morning cross-examination of a prosecution witness, and U.S. District Judge William M. Hoeveler recessed the trial until today. Last week the trial was interrupted for two days when Noriega's defense attorney, Frank Rubino, was bedridden with the flu, and an alternate juror, who was later dropped from the panel, suffered a mild heart attack.
