LATEST: Music producer Phil Spector's trial has been put on hold for two days because one of his lawyers had to visit a doctor this morning (30Apr07) and there are planned immigration rallies near the Los Angeles courthouse tomorrow (01May07).
Superior Court Judge Larry Paul Fidler told the hearing that testimonies will next be heard on Wednesday (02May07) morning, but did not reveal why attorney Bruce Cutler had to see a doctor.
Before dismissing the jury, Cutler asked if any of the jurors had seen US TV show 48 Hours, about prosecutor and Deputy District Attorney Alan Jackson, last week (ends27Apr07).
The programme didn't touch on the Spector trial, but none of the jury, who are banned from watching any show about lawyers in the case, claimed to have seen it anyway.
Spector is accused of the fatal shooting of actress Lana Clarkson, who was found slumped in the foyer of his Los Angeles home in February 2003. He has pleaded not guilty and claims Clarkson committed suicide.
