As former President Donald Trump’s defense team works to pick a jury in his New York hush money case, his attorneys are asking a judge in Florida for more time to prepare.

Trump’s legal team has asked Judge Aileen Cannon to push back deadlines in the Florida classified documents case. Specifically, Trump has asked that the May 9 deadline for expert disclosures and Classified Information Procedures Act notice be postponed until three weeks after the conclusion of the New York hush money trial.
