The trial of former Monroe City Councilmen Arthur Gilmore and Robert Stevens has been postponed.
The trial, which was set to begin Tuesday in Shreveport, has been rescheduled to May 13.
Attorneys met in Shreveport on Monday for a status conference with U.S. District Judge Donald Walter, at which time the trial date was postponed.
The News-Star reports a reason for the postponement was not given in the court filing.
Gilmore and Stevens were convicted of racketeering and bribery in May 2011. Walter granted a new trial for Stevens and Gilmore in March.
