Gordon Lee Trial Delayed… Again

News from Georgia yesterday indicates that the trial of Rome retailer Gordon Lee, set to go to trial on charges relating from the inopportune inclusion of a comic containing non-sensationalized nudity in a Halloween giveaway back in 2005, has been delayed once again -- to November. The cause this time is a sick judge.

The delay should add to the public sympathy many feel for Lee in terms of years of his life being turned over to a case stemming from a complain that many feel could have been handled with a phone call and an apology, and is an example of how any case handled by the CBLDF can steamroll in terms of expenses due to circumstances completely outside of their control.
