Fox News reports: U.S. District Court Judge Leonie Brinkema has ruled testimony about aviation security measures would not be allowed during the rest of the trial. Prosecutors had said previously that testimony from aviation officials would comprise half their case.
Prosecutor Rob Spencer immediately told the judge the government objected to excluding all such testimony and exhibits and would consider appealing her ruling.
Judge Brinkema granted a request by the prosecutors to delay proceedings in the trial until Monday. The prosecutors sought the delay so they could consider whether to appeal.
Meanwhile, Carla J. Martin, Transportation Security Administration attorney whose conduct in sending emails to witnesses is in question, has retained attorney Roscoe Brown to represent her and has so far declined to answer questions.
