A judge is refusing to delay the ethics trial of Alabama House Speaker Mike Hubbard, at least for now.
Lee County Circuit Judge Jacob Walker declined Hubbard's request for a postponement after a hearing Tuesday in Opelika.
But the judge noted that the case could still be delayed for other reasons, like an appeal of any of his pretrial decisions.
Hubbard is now set to go on trial on March 28. He had sought a postponement until the fall after his lead attorney left the case earlier this month.
