LAS VEGAS, Nevada - Monday's status check in the O.J. Simpson case was a short proceeding, but attorneys are still working behind closed doors on a number of things - including going over the 500 completed questionnaires by prospective jurors.
O.J. Simpson and co-defendant C.J. Stewart
Co-defendant C. J. Stewart attended today's hearing, which was a bit of a surprise since the defendant's attendance is not required. Stewart's attorney, Robert Lucherini, asked the court for a continuance and a stay of the upcoming trial, but both motions were denied by Judge Jackie Glass. This rulings clear the way procedurally for the Nevada Supreme Court to act on Stewart's filing. He wants the Supreme Court to ultimately sever his case away from Simpson's.
The trial begins September 8 here in Las Vegas.
