The trial for two former Vanderbilt football players accused of raping a student will be delayed until January 2015 because one of the defense attorneys needs emergency surgery, News Channel 5 reports. Judge Monte Watkins made the decision today after Worrick Robinson, lawyer for Corey Batey, reported he needed invasive surgery Monday on a shoulder injury. Prosecutors sought to sever the cases and move forward with a trial for Brandon Vandenburg, but both Robinson and Vandenburg’s lawyer Fletcher Long said they prepared only for a joint trial.
