>> Despite appearing in court in late June to give his testimony, when John Galliano's verdict is handed down Sept. 8 — deciding whether he made anti-Semitic remarks to three separate people — he won't be in the courtroom, according to his lawyer. If ruled guilty, Galliano could face a six-month jail term and a fine of 22,500 euros ($32,410); however, during the trial in June, the prosecutor recommended a diminished fine of up to 5,000 euros ($7,188).
