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?"

The baby, Connor James Burns, born on Tuesday, was in stable condition late yesterday, said Dawn Kelly, an Abington spokeswoman.

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.

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.
