Runaway former attorney Timothy McCabe is asking that the court delay upcoming hearings because of the amount of paperwork involved in his case.
McCabe, 55, is scheduled for an Oct. 2 calendar call and Oct. 7 jury trial.
The delay request, made Friday by McCabe attorney Robert Gershman, notes that discovery in the case is “voluminous.”
“This is a document intensive case, with many bank records, attorney trust account records and other papers that need to be properly reviewed in order to adequately prepare,” Gershman wrote.
Gershman told a judge this month that the case would likely end in a plea deal rather than trial. McCabe allegedly bilked clients out of an estimated $8 million before disappearing in April for nearly three months. He has since been disbarred.
McCabe pleaded not guilty last month to wire fraud and fraud on a financial institution. He remains in jail without bail.
Federal prosecutors are not fighting a hearing delay, according to Gershman’s request.
