NY bomb trial delayed, prosecution needs more time

A federal judge has delayed the trialof four men accused of plotting to bomb New York synagogues afterthe prosecution said it needs more time to comply with a rulingfavorable to the defense.

The government said the ruling means it has to go throughclassified material to see what it must turn over to the defense.

The request for a delay angered Judge Colleen McMahon. She saidthe prosecution should have been prepared.

McMahon said she would consider defense motions to dismiss thecase. She also set next Monday for bail hearings for the fourdefendants, who have been in prison for more than a year.

Jury selection was supposed to start Monday but the 140potential jurors were told they would not be needed

Defense motions to dismiss the case are due July 2.
