Ailing Lawyer Delays Spector Trial

The murder trial of music producer Phil Spector has been delayed until May 7 because of a defense attorney’s medical problem.

Bruce Cutler told the Los Angeles Times that he had some problems with his diabetes medications.

“Superman has to get some kryptonite taken out of his system,” Cutler said. “I want to get through this so I can keep lifting the world the way I want to.”

Also, prosecutors have filed a motion for sanctions against defense lawyers for failing to turn over tests discussed by their forensic scientist on Court TV, the newspaper reports.
