Delay sought in fake Lipitor cases

A joint motion has been filed to continue the sentencing hearings in the cases of Julio Cesar Cruz and Domingo Gonzalez, who both pleaded guilty to their roles in a conspiracy to illegally smuggle prescription drugs and fake Lipitor into the United States. Those hearings are currently scheduled for June 28, 2005, but would be rescheduled for about six months later if the court grants the motion filed today.
