I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby Jr.’s recent motion to postpone his Jan. 8, 2007, trial by 35 days is causing something of a headache in Judge Reggie Walton’s chambers. Although Walton, who is presiding over the case in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, put off ruling on the motion until the pretrial hearing in August, he added a footnote in his June 30 order saying he has “great reservations” about postponing the trial. The reason: Walton’s chambers only recently received funding for its clerk assigned to the case — Brad Brooker — to stay on until mid-February, which might not be long enough if the trial is delayed. “Unless it becomes absolutely necessary to continue this case, the Court is loath to do so because of the hardship a continuance would create for the Court if it loses the services of the clerk assigned to this case before the trial is completed,” Walton wrote.
