New Bonds Secret Recording

Witness for the prosecution, Steve Hoskins, has revealed that he has a secret taped recording of his conversation with Dr. Arthur Ting.

Hoskins, Bonds' former business manager, found a previously lost 15-minute tape recording of a conversation he had with Dr. Ting, the player's physician, in 2003 or 2004. Prosecutors claim it will back up Hoskins' testimony that he discussed Bonds' alleged steroids use with Dr. Ting, who testified he didn't have any such conversations.

Hoskins' credibility was compromised on cross examination, so this tape could help revive it. Problem is that Judge Susan Illston is saying that the recording is "almost entirely inadmissible or irrelevant".
