‘Whitey’ Bulger’s lawyer seeking another delay

The attorney for James “Whitey” Bulger asked Friday for another trial delay, charging that a federal judge had not given the defendant enough taxpayer-financed resources to properly organize hundreds of thousands of pages of documents, photographs, and wiretaps that make up the evidence against the former South Boston crime boss accused of participating in 19 murders.

Bulger’s lead attorney, J.W. Carney Jr., complained about rulings by Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler and also accused prosecutors in US Attorney Carmen Ortiz’s office of deliberately violating rules in a way that is undercutting Bulger’s constitutional right to a fair trial.
