THERE WERE moments of humor and even what might pass for candor during some contentious exchanges. But, for the most part, the confirmation hearings of John G. Roberts Jr. to be chief justice of the United States have been carefully scripted, with few if any surprises. Given the stakes - the first hearing on a Supreme Court nominee in 11 years and the first for chief justice in 19 years - the posturing by some senators and the frequent evasiveness by Judge Roberts was predictable. But after a day of opening statements and two days of interrogation, the senators and the public had at least a picture of Judge Roberts - as he chose to present himself.

The Dundalk man gunned down last week outside his tavern was struck by four bullets in the head and four in the chest. He was still breathing when help arrived but was beyond saving by the time he reached a hospital. A day after Robert Lee Martin's wife, her brother and two accomplices were charged with first-degree murder in the barkeep's death, additional details of the killing emerged Thursday in a Towson courtroom during the defendants' bail review hearing. Garret P. Glennon, an assistant state's attorney who oversees murder charges for the county, told the judge that an "appreciable amount of planning" had gone into the shooting of the tavern owner early Saturday as he left Hop's Inn for the night, a "coordinated effort" that involved a "division of labor."

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The judge in William Kennedy Smith's trial on rape charges said last night that Mr. Smith's lawyers violated state laws in obtaining the alleged victim's medical records and ordered them not to use the records in the trial that begins next week.That could deal a blow to the defense, which hoped to make an issue of the Florida woman's medical history, including abortions and use of prescription drugs. Even more significant, since much of that testimony already has been barred or is expected to be barred, is Judge Mary Lupo's condemnation of defense tactics in obtaining the records.
