pellicano1.jpgThere was a status conference in the Pellicano case this morning. Several things were discussed: disgraced entertainment attorney Terry Christensen’s motion to stay the case or to continue the trial was denied as well as his request to dismiss his indictment. So, as of right now, the trial of the Hollywood private investigator known as The Pelican will start on February 27th as planned. The feds said they expected to take 5 to 6 weeks to present evidence. The feeling is that the total length of the trial would be 9 to 10 weeks. Meanwhile, Anthony continues to sit in jail until trial.
