Rasual Butler, a sophomore and budding basketball star at La Salle University, yesterday walked out of Common Pleas Court an unencumbered man after his brush with the criminal-justice system ended uneventfully, according to his grandfather and guardian, Robert Toomer. Last May, Butler, a product of Roman Catholic High, was charged with simple assault and reckless endangerment after allegedly beating Robin Morris, the mother of his baby daughter, inside his home on the 2000 block of Manton Street, in South Philadelphia.

Camden County Superior Court Judge Paul A. Lowengrub yesterday appointed a medical guardian to determine whether a blood transfusion is needed for a critically ill 15-year-old girl who, like her parents, opposes the transfusion for religious reasons. Suzanne Koerner of Monroeville, Gloucester County, a Jehovah's Witness, was hit by a car as she waited for a school bus early Thursday morning, injuring her left arm and leg. After emergency surgery Thursday, the leg wound remained open and the girl continued to lose blood, according to testimony yesterday by Dr. Christine Rehm of Cooper Hospital-University Medical Center.

LIKE MOST celebrity information, the nuggets can usually be divided into two camps: News and speculation. The "news" has some reliable chance of validity and accuracy; the speculation, tending to be juicier and more ridiculous, sometimes turns out to be valid, but who knows. When it comes to the death of Michael Jackson, speculation, and it's ugly cousin, conspiracy theorizing (the "Michael-was- murdered"-for-the-insurance/ by-his-doctor/by-THE-MAN stories) are rampant.

Thomas Lee's legal guardian says he does not have enough information to decide whether the Haddonfield teenager should remain on a life-support system or be allowed to die from cyanide poisoning, according to legal papers filed yesterday. Even so, the guardian, lawyer Joseph H. Kenney, asked to continue in his role as the final arbiter of Lee's fate. The 17-year-old has been in a coma since eating yogurt containing the highly toxic poison on Jan. 3. According to the statement Kenney filed yesterday, Lee had not breathed on his own during the brief periods when the respirator has been removed.

PHILADELPHIA To illustrate his point, Spencer Ackerman ordered the panel moderator to hand over her wallet, from which he then withdrew a credit card. "I'm going to make a little indentation copy of it," Ackerman, the national security editor for the Guardian newspaper, told about a hundred in the audience at the American Library Association's annual meeting at the Convention Center in Philadelphia on Saturday. "Now, I have an impression of her credit card. Have I taken something from her when I took the card or only when I use the impression to make a purchase?"

Montgomery County Court yesterday appointed Abington Memorial Hospital guardian of a newborn, allowing it to begin treating the baby for a serious blood condition after his parents allegedly refused to give consent. The baby, Connor James Burns, born on Tuesday, was in stable condition late yesterday, said Dawn Kelly, an Abington spokeswoman. "The court order was obtained by the hospital so that the baby could be treated because he was at high risk for a bacterial blood infection," the hospital said in a statement.

A New Jersey judge today rejected a bid by a Haddonfield couple to dismiss a court-appointed guardian for their 17-year-old son, comatose for the last month because of cyanide poisoning. Superior Court Judge Paul A. Lowengrub ruled that the guardian should remain in place because of an ongoing investigation by the Camden County prosecutor's office into the poisoning of Thomas Lee. Lee remains in critical condition at West Jersey Hospital in Voorhees, where he has been on life-support equipment since eating tainted yogurt Jan. 3 taken from his home.

The guardian, Hackensack attorney Lorraine A. Abraham, disclosed that a three-member panel of mental-health experts, including a Philadelphia-area psychiatrist, proposed such an arrangement in individual reports to her. "I'm...

In a highly unusual move, a judge said yesterday he would appoint a guardian to review the confidential psychiatric records of a 12-year-old girl charged with the stabbing death of a South Philadelphia woman last summer. Common Pleas Court Judge Legrome D. Davis said he would name a lawyer as a guardian for Miriam White to look through her medical-treatment records, which are "privileged" under the law. The guardian would help White determine whether she wants to give up her right to keep the records closed to scrutiny by government and defense lawyers in her criminal case.

DEAR ABBY: In 2004, my husband and I were contacted by a friend who had gotten into an abusive relationship and lost custody of her daughter. She asked us to go through social services and adopt her little girl, so at least she would know her baby was loved and well taken care of. Long story short, we did everything we could, but in the end, we lost our battle. The grandparents were involved and took over. It was heartbreaking after a year and a half of loving the girl to have to let her go. My niece works at an ice cream shop and saw our precious one recently.

If Trenton takes over Atlantic City, Mayor Don Guardian might want to hear - and perhaps heed - the advice of his former counterpart in Camden. "I would tell him, 'Gather your residents around you, empower them, and they will help you fight,' " said Gwendolyn Faison, who vividly recalls the state's taking control of her City Hall in 2002. That eight-year takeover's most significant legacy, beyond an enduring sense of disenfranchisement, was to channel nearly $100 million in public money to development projects at major city institutions, such as Cooper University Hospital.

Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian held a press briefing Thursday afternoon to stress that the city would be proactive in executing any mandatory evacuations ordered ahead of Joaquin's approach. During Sandy, then-Mayor Lorenzo Langford was criticized by Gov. Christie and others for not doing more to get people out of the island city, instead setting up shelters within the city's borders, some of which flooded. "We certainly have learned a lot from Sandy," Guardian said. "If there are evacuations, we will start on Sunday to get everyone off the island 24 hours before the hurricane.
