Next up, motion to continue. O'Mara says this is an ongoing issue due to delayed discovery. He says he will be requesting a judicial inquiry into other discovery violations.
The other justification for continuance, Reich, may be addressed depending on court ruling. Reich's report won't be done for another two weeks. Reich refused to turn over his report done for WaPo based on the report being the property of WaPo. O'Mara says he is looking for a several week to couple month delay. O'Mara says there may be undiscovered discovery violations.
Bernardo is also waiting for defense. The state objects to a continuance.
Nelson reviews her October order, which had a deadline of March for expert disclosure. She also refers to defense motion to extend discovery to April 10/17, and defense statement that this would not jeopardize trial date.
She denies motion to continue, it's a final decision, she allows O'Mara to put something on the record. He says the defense did not say it would be ready. He points out that the state's delivery of expert material was not timely. He goes through a list of e-mails sent to the state, looking for background/foundation on the experts, which have still not been responded to.
