Cohen Lawyers May Get 10 More Days to Review Seized Documents

(Bloomberg) -- Lawyers representing Michael Cohen, President Trump’s longtime lawyer, may get a 10-day extension of Friday’s deadline to complete their review of documents seized in an April FBI raid.

Barbara Jones, the retired judge named to help in the document review process, recommended that the judge overseeing the case extend the deadline to June 25. Jones cited the "substantial progress and diligent effort" of Cohen’s team and other lawyers in the case.

Lawyers for the government don’t object to the delay, she said.
