On Friday, March 15, the court hearing in the criminal case of fraud involving former US President Donald Trump was postponed for 30 days, according to Fox News.

The hearing was scheduled for March 25 but will now take place no earlier than the end of April.

The US Attorney's Office stated that most of the materials are not relevant to the state case against Trump. Federal prosecutors have already provided at least 104,000 pages of records, 74,000 of which were initially only provided to the Bragg's office, not to Trump's attorneys. Since then, the Bragg's office has transferred these 74,000 pages to the defense.

"Trump's lawyers were seeking a 90-day delay or a dismissal of the charges against him, arguing there were violations in the discovery process, whereby both sides exchange evidence. Defense lawyers claimed a 30-day adjournment was insufficient and asked Merchan to schedule a hearing on discovery," FOX News reported.

Bragg had previously stated that he did not object to postponing the start of the trial for up to 30 days to give Trump's legal team time to review the evidence recently handed over.
