Judge Grants Govt. Motion for Continuance; April 17 Trial Delayed

By Defend J20 Resistance

An hour before yesterday's hearing, the U.S. Attorney's office filed for a continuance for the April 17 trial. Judge Morin granted the motion and a new trial date has been set for June 4.

A similar motion has also been filed for the April 23rd trial.

The government cites as their primary reason difficulties in obtaining an expert witness after the Judge ruled that they cannot have an anonymous expert. For more on the ruling, an article published yesterday by Think Progress provides some analysis.
