DETROIT (AP) - The latest testimony in the corruption trial of former Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick lasted just a few hours due to a fall by a defense attorney.
Gerald Evelyn (EE'-vuhlin) says co-counsel Susan Van Dusen fell during a break Monday and smacked her face on the hard floor at the Detroit federal courthouse. Van Dusen is from Miami and is representing Kilpatrick pal Bobby Ferguson.
It's the second time that the trial has been interrupted because of health problems with the defense team. The trial was stopped for two weeks in late October when Evelyn became ill.
Kilpatrick, his father Bernard and Ferguson are accused of running a criminal enterprise when Kwame Kilpatrick was mayor. The charges include bribery and extortion.
The trial started in September and will stretch into 2013.
