Navy bribery scandal trial held up by massive pile of documents

Twenty-five defendants are charged with a total of 242 specified acts. Attempting to prove their guilt will require prosecutors to go through thousands and thousands of documents -- literally terabytes of data. Defense attorneys, too, will need to parse those documents, as will the judge. Just the process of determining what, exactly, those documents say, will take months.

This is why a federal judge has delayed the trial of nine Navy officers accused of contract bribery. The nine high-ranking officials are among 25 total people charged in connection with the alleged fraud and corruption involving Singapore-based Glenn Defense Marine Asia, a military contractor and the Navy's Seventh Fleet.
