Co-defendant seeks delay of OJ Simpson trial

Co-defendant seeks delay of OJ Simpson trial

O.J. Simpson's only remaining co-defendant is making a last-ditch pitch to persuade a Nevada judge to postpone the start of their armed robbery and kidnapping trial.
A lawyer for Clarence "C.J." Stewart filed a two-page motion Wednesday asking for a delay of the Sept. 8 trial until the Nevada Supreme Court considers his request for a separate trial.
Attorney Robert Lucherini argues it will be impossible for Stewart to get a fair trial because of Simpson's celebrity.
Clark County District Court Judge Jackie Glass has twice rejected requests for a separate trial.
A Supreme Court clerk said the justices haven't scheduled discussions on the motion.
Stewart is one of five men who accompanied Simpson during a confrontation with two sports memorabilia dealers.
