Trial has been delayed again for a flight attendant accused of disrupting SkyWest flights he worked in the upper Midwest and on the East Coast last year.
Justin Cox-Sever allegedly made bogus bomb threats on a July flight from Charlottesville, Virginia, to Chicago, and on a September flight from Minneapolis to Dickinson, North Dakota.
He was to stand trial in the North Dakota case in February, but a judge granted a delay until April. The federal public defender office had requested more time to prepare, indicating that the Virginia case might be consolidated with the North Dakota case.
The defender office earlier this month asked for even more preparation time, and U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland this week granted the request. Cox-Sever is now scheduled for trial beginning June 6.
