NEW ORLEANS –– A Louisiana federal judge who previously pushed back a February 2013 trial date in a benzene case has rescheduled for April 23, according to a recent order issued in the case.

The U.S. District Court of Louisiana had previously continued the trial after counsel noted that not only did significant discovery remained in the case, but the upcoming holidays, including Mardi Gras, would complicate the February trial date.

In the Dec. 13 order, the court ordered that depositions should be completed by March 5, with in limine motions filed by March 13.
