Trial in Hepatitis Outbreak Delayed
(Las Vegas, NV) — A judge yesterday delayed the trial of three people in connection with the valley’s hepatitis C outbreak. District Judge Donald Mosley has continued the trial of Doctor Dipak Desai and two nurses until March 2012.
Defense attorney Michael Cristalli tells KXNT it will take a long time to go through thousands of documents provided by health officials.
Desai, who owned the clinic where seven people allegedly contracted hepatitis C in 2007, has been ruled incompetent to help his lawyers due to two strokes. The two nurses were to have gone to trial this coming Monday.
