A judge agreed Monday to postpone for 13 months the trial of a Chinese-American engineer charged with stealing military and aerospace trade secrets on behalf of China.
Kenneth Miller, the attorney for 72-year-old Dongfan "Greg" Chung, asked for the delay because he is involved in a lengthy trial, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg Staples.
The trial was scheduled for April 8, but U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney agreed to delay it until May 5, 2009.
The government alleges that Chung stole trade secrets on the space shuttle, C-17 military transport and the Delta IV rocket during his decades of employment at Rockwell International and Boeing.
Did Clinton issue an executive order that changed the definition of "espianage" to "theft of trade secrets"?
