In the wake of a judge’s ruling pushing back the trial date for accused killer Claud “Tex” McIver by more than four months, his attorney won’t come right out and accuse prosecutors of using a last-minute document dump of more than 80,000 emails as a strategic move to gain time to build their case.

But William Hill Jr. said it was the Fulton County district attorney’s office that sat on the thousands of pages of documents until the Oct. 30 trial date drew near before turning them over and using them as an excuse to seek a continuance.

“Our position has always been that we were ready for trial; we never asked for a continuance,” said the Polsinelli shareholder. “The fact of the matter is that the state is not ready to go to trial.”
