U.S. District Court judge federal Dale Fischer today postponed the racketeering and wiretapping trial of Hollywood private eye Anthony Pellicano until August 22. Originally scheduled first for October and then for February, the trial keeps getting delayed. The problem seems to be the interminable discovery process taking place. Pellicano opposed a joint motion by prosecutors and five defense attorneys representing other defendants in the case to postpone the trial until September. According to the AP, 14 people have been charged so far in the case, with six pleading guilty to a variety of charges, including conspiracy and wire fraud. One person has been acquitted.
Another Pellicano Trial Delay: August 22
