Prosecutors oppose McGrath’s request for trial delay

October 20, 2022

Prosecutors in the Roy McGrath fraud trial told a federal judge Wednesday that a defense motion seeking a delay “sweeps too broadly” in its characterization of recently turned over evidence. The prosecutors’ filing was in response to a Tuesday motion from Joseph Murtha, McGrath’s attorney, for a postponement of the trial. Murtha said a slew of new evidence turned over to the defense by prosecutors required more time to review and would make it difficult to be prepared for trial, which has been scheduled to start next Monday.
