Barry Bonds' attorneys are seeking to keep details about the slugger's temper from the jury.
On Monday, they asked the federal judge overseeing the perjury case to bar testimony from Bonds' former girlfriend, his doctor and others that the former San Francisco Giant berated people and treated his former personal trainer disrespectfully.
The defense team also wants to bar testimony about Bonds'relationships with a Playboy magazine model and with his second wife.
Those requests were contained in several court documents that Bonds' attorneys and prosecutors filed Monday seeking to limit what the other side shows the jury during the trial scheduled to start March 21.
For their part, federal prosecutors want an order barring Bonds from suggesting the government engaged in misconduct or unfairly singled him out for prosecution.
