Status Hearing Updates
3:45pm: Adjournment. Full house today. NO continuance as of now. Xylene is OUT. May 5 evidentiary hearing is next order of business. Full recap coming.
2:50pm: Price, Ward, Zaborsky here. Defense team associates arrive. Schertler, Connolly too. Legal Times Mike Scarcella on site to cover.
2:45pm: Waiting outside the hearing room now. Members of Wone family arrived.
1:05pm: Sources indicate xylene may not make it to trial. Levels and concentration were ‘insignificant.’ We may know for certain in a couple hours.
12:30pm: All case watchers will be holding their breath today at today’s hearing, hoping no delays or continuance imperils the May 10 trial date. Of course the last minute government testing of Robert’s blood is an issue here.
Earlier this week the defense filed an extension for time to reply to the government’s motion that first alerted us to the xylene test results.
