One Last Brief Delay in the Livent Trial

Prosecutors in the criminal fraud trial of Garth Drabinsky and Myron Gottlieb were supposed to wrap up their case Tuesday afternoon. But as I approached the courthouse I saw a bad omen defence lawyer Brian Greenspan parking his sleek black Jaguar on a street near the courthouse where cars could be ticketed and towed if they stayed longer than 30 minutes.

In an abbreviated court session, lawyers told Madam Justice Mary Lou Benotto they wanted the trial to resume on Thursday when prosecutors will introduce the last of the documents they want entered as part of their case. On Thursday, we may (emphasis on may) finally learn if the defence intends to call any of their own evidence.

As always, the trial continues.
