New witness delays trial over bitcoin exchange tied to JPMorgan hack

http://www.business-standard.com/article/reuters/new-witness-delays-trial-over-bitcoin-exchange-tied-to-jpmorgan-hack-117021400093_1.html

The trial of two men was delayed on Monday in a case stemming from a probe into a bitcoin exchange and a data breach at JPMorgan Chase & Co after prosecutors revealed a new witness.

Jury selection was set to begin in Manhattan federal court in the case of Yuri Lebedev, whom authorities call the architect of bitcoin exchange Coin.mx's platform, and Trevon Gross, a pastor and ex-chairman of a now-defunct credit union.

But U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan delayed jury selection until Tuesday after prosecutors said they had secured a new witness.

The witness, Philip Burgess, was represented by the law firm of one of Gross' lawyers in an unrelated tax case in which he was sentenced in 2010 to eight months in prison.
