Judge to Posada Carriles: The show must go on

A federal judge today denied defense lawyers' request for a delay in the trial of Luis Posada Carriles, but reserved the right to sanction prosecutors for their late delivery of evidence.

In a document filed today, U.S. District Court Judge Kathleen Cardone wrote:
Upon due consideration, the Court finds that a continuance is unwarranted and the Motion should be DENIED. However, the Court recognizes that the government’s tardy delivery of this very large number of materials may cause hardship for Posada’s defense at trial.
Posada Carriles is accused of perjury and other charges. His trial is set to begin Jan. 10 in El Paso.
