Michael Avenatti’s sentencing on charges of extorting Nike Inc. has been delayed for a second time during the COVID-19 pandemic, after the embattled attorney raised concerns about rising case counts and New York travel restrictions.

U.S. District Judge Paul G. Gardephe of the Southern District of New York on Wednesday granted Avenatti’s request to adjourn his planned Aug. 19 sentencing by about 50 days and set a new date of Oct. 7.
