The trial for Osama bin Laden's son-in-law has been set for months later than a New York judge would like due to "troublesome" sequester-related concerns.

Judge Lewis Kaplan had said Tuesday that Suleiman Abu Ghaith, accused member of al Qaeda's early inner circle, could face trial as early as September, around the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks – attacks Ghaith praised in online videos alongside bin Laden.

Abu Ghaith's lawyer contended that a September start would be too soon due to the sequestration's cuts on public defenders, part of a possible $350 million hit to the nation's court system.

After referring to the "troublesome" sequester, today Kaplan said Abu Ghaith's trial is now expected to begin in January 2014.

Last month Judge Julia Gibbons, chair of the Judicial Conference Budget Committee, testified before Congress that leaving sequestration as is would "have a devastating effect on federal court operations nationwide." She warned the courts could face up to 2,000 layoffs or furloughs before September.

David Patton, executive director of the Federal Defenders of New York, called the effect of sequester on his fellow attorneys "a mess."

Yeah, it is the sequester causing the trial problems, according to his defense attorneys, ten years after he was taken into custody.

Good one, sequester princess.

Translation: The battery rework design took less than a month, this is my (non-smarter's) official swallow crap moment.
