Report: New Trial Date Set In RUSH Guitarist's Battery Case

John Henderson of the Naples Daily News reports that a new trial date has been set in a battery case involving RUSH lead guitarist Alex Lifeson, and it falls right in the heart of the group's upcoming 30th anniversary tour.

But Lifeson's (a.k.a. Alex Zivojinovich) defense attorney said he doesn't expect the trial to be held on the new scheduled date of June 14, which is a day after RUSH are scheduled to perform in Bonner Springs, Kan., at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.

"There is a lot of discovery left to do. The trial isn't looming anytime soon," said Jerry Berry, who is Alex Zivojinovich's Naples defense attorney.

Zivojinovich and his son, Justin Zivojinovich, are facing charges related to an altercation they are said to have had with Collier County sheriff's deputies on New Year's Eve at the Ritz-Carlton, Naples. Alex Zivojinovich has a residence in North Naples. [Read more]
