A criminal defense lawyer is mounting a challenge to the District of New Jersey’s continuing hiatus on jury trials, citing the personal toll that waiting for a trial date has taken on his client.

The lawyer filed a speedy trial motion on behalf of his client despite a court order suspending jury trials and jury selection in federal court until March 12. He’s hoping the motion will lead to a ruling that specifically addresses the moratorium’s impact on his client’s case, and will call attention to the downside of going without jury trials.
