Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby is facing four federal charges related to perjury and making false mortgage applications.

BALTIMORE (AP) — A federal judge has postponed the trial of Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby on perjury and mortgage fraud charges due to a dispute over disclosure of witnesses. U.S.

District Court Judge Lydia Griggsby on Wednesday canceled jury selection, which was scheduled to begin on Thursday.

Prosecutors filed a motion to delay the trial over concerns about an expert witness the defense wants to call.

The government said the defense disclosure was late. Prosecutors want more time to prepare, if the judge allows the testimony.

The judge called for attorneys to return to court Thursday, saying there’s too much to hash out to proceed.
