Hopefully, this will also give time for some of the media furor to die down and an actual trial go on instead of a trial by media and gossip. Or is that too much to hope for?
The judge overseeing the case against former astronaut Lisa Marie Nowak has postponed the trial, possibly until next year, the county court clerk's Web site shows.
Records on the Orange County Clerk of Courts Web site says the state filed a motion to delay the trial, which was granted by Orange Circuit Judge Marc Lubet. The trial was scheduled to begin Sept. 24.
Because Nowak's attorneys have filed notice of intent to use an insanity defense, the clerk's Web site says dates would be set when the 2008 judicial calendar is distributed.
