The court was not able to say when the trial would resume.Vela is accused of having in 1969 taken Ines Madrigal, now aged 49, from her biological mother, and giving her to another woman who raised her and was falsely certified as her birth mother.During questioning in court on Tuesday's opening day, Vela said he could not remember details of how the San Ramon clinic, which he ran for 20 years up to 1982, operated and that the signature on Madrigal's birth certificate was not his.It was expanded to take newborns from poor families as well as illegitimate babies.
