On Tuesday (Dec. 12), presiding judge over the YSL case, Judge Ural Glanville, announced the ongoing trial will be suspended until after the holiday.
“Let me go ahead and tell you where we are,” Judge Glanville announced to the jury in the video below. “Remember yesterday we recessed because one of our participants had a medical issues and I was telling you about that? Well, unfortunately, that medical condition still exists.”
He continued: “Given the length of time that we will probably address that, it might be just more prudent to recess you. An early recess. Instead of recessing you this Friday as the Court’s plan was originally, I’m gonna recess you for the holidays, today.”
According to legal affairs reporter Meghann Cuniff, the trial will resume on Jan. 2, 2024.
