    A day after the prosecution rolled out its heavy hitters, literally, Barry Bonds will be treated to a shorter day in court.

    Thursday's proceedings will be cut short at 1:30 p.m. because of the schedule of Judge Susan Illston.

    The prosecution will call as witnesses Dr. Arthur Ting, Kathy Hoskins and Dr. Don Catlin after calling all its professional baseball player witnesses Wednesday.

    The prosecution is also expected to rest once it is able to get through the final group of witnesses.

    If the prosecution rests as early as Thursday, the defense is expected to open its arguments Monday.
