A judge hearing the case of three men charged in the assault on trucker Reginald O. Denny during last year's riots on Thursday pushed back the start of the trial to April 12, the second delay granted in six days at the request of defense attorneys. Superior Court Judge John W. Ouderkirk said he reread arguments in a defense motion for an additional delay and was persuaded that postponing the start of the trial would be appropriate.

Arguing that prosecutors have systematically excluded black potential jurors from the Reginald O. Denny beating case, a defense attorney unsuccessfully sought to have the entire panel removed Tuesday so that the process could start again. Superior Court Judge John W. Ouderkirk denied attorney Earl C. Broady's motion, saying there was no evidence that jurors were being excluded on the basis of race.

Defense attorneys will not be given 14 years of documents to support their contention that defendants in the Reginald O. Denny beating case are victims of discriminatory prosecution, but the defense team will still seek to have the case dismissed on those grounds. Superior Court Judge John Ouderkirk on Friday rejected a defense request that the prosecution be ordered to surrender the documents, saying a months-long search for the records would "create an unreasonable delay in the case."

Defense attorneys for two men accused of trying to kill truck driver Reginald O. Denny at the start of the Los Angeles riots said Friday that questionnaires show that many prospective jurors have prejudged the case. Earl C. Broady Jr., who represents Henry Keith Watson, 28, said he looked at questionnaires completed by most of the 39 prospective jurors who survived an initial screening Wednesday and found that about half indicated they had already made up their minds.

For the second time in a week, the judge in the trial of three men accused of assaulting Reginald O. Denny tried to facilitate plea-bargain discussions, telling defense attorneys and prosecutors that his boss was willing to act as a neutral party in the process. Superior Court Judge John W. Ouderkirk's remarks during a pretrial hearing drew an angry response from one of the lawyers, who last week voiced no objection to such talks.

An attorney for Damian Monroe (Football) Williams charged Monday that his client was coerced into making a statement to police that implicated him in the April 29 attack on truck driver Reginald O. Denny at the outset of the Los Angeles riots. "Incriminating statements were obtained from the defendant during a constitutionally invalid interrogation where the defendant was coerced into making statements involuntarily," Dennis Palmieri wrote in a motion filed with the court.

One of five men accused in the attacks on Reginald O. Denny during the riots was sentenced Tuesday to two years in prison. Anthony Lamar Brown, 24, had pleaded guilty to spitting at Denny as well as assaulting motorist Manuel Vaca at Florence and Normandie avenues last April 29. Brown struck a plea bargain in early February just as his trial was about to begin, agreeing to serve a two-year term for assault, according to his attorney, Leonard Chaitin.

Attorneys for Damian Monroe Williams requested Friday that his $580,000 bail be reduced to $35,000 because he was found not guilty of the charges that could have gotten him a life sentence in the Reginald O. Denny beating trial. Williams, who has been held since his arrest 17 months ago in the Los Angeles County Jail, was convicted of a reduced felony charge of simple mayhem for hitting Denny in the head with a brick.
