CNMI Attorney General Buckingham filed a motion in the U.S. District Court of the Northern Mariana Islands today requesting that the evidentiary hearing be rescheduled. He stated that "the Commonwealth requires additional time to review the basis of the evidentiary hearing and to file appropriate pleadings with this Honorable Court on behalf of one or more of the individuals scheduled to appear, pursuant to subpoena, at the evidentiary hearing."Visit Wendy's blog for links to the motion and the order.
