Boston Marathon Bomb Suspect’s Trial Date Set for Nov. 3

Overview


Mark Pearlstein, commenting on the Nov. 3 trial date for accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, said Tsarnaev’s lawyers will probably seek to delay it and Judge O’Toole may consider the request if the defense team can demonstrate why more time is needed. “Judge O’Toole no doubt wants to move the case along as briskly as possible,” said Pearlstein. However, “the work associated with defending a capital case is enormous.”
