Coke Trade Secrets Trial -- Likely Delay

From the AP via the Jacksonville Florida Times-Union, a story about one of the Coke trade secrets defendants, former Coke administrative assistant Joya Williams, seeking to delay the trial for several months. The court had earlier published a notice indicating that the trial would begin next month.

According to the story, Williams' attorney cited the complexity of the case, her client's emotional strain over the charge and upcoming surgery the defendant's father is expected to have as reasons why a delay should be granted.

The filing also said that the prosecutors did not oppose the continuance. In general, that means the case will be put off, probably until sometime next year.
