Alex's trial date

Post by schuette » Sat Jun 05, 2004 8:51 am

According to John Henderson of the Naples News, a new trial date has been set in a battery case involving ALEX ZIVOJINOVICH (aka LIFESON), the lead guitarist for the rock group Rush, and it falls right in the heart of the group's upcoming 30th anniversary tour.

But Alex Zivojinovich's 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 is 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.

"We don't anticipate any problems with the tour," Berry said Tuesday.

Under terms of his bond, Zivojinovich is allowed to travel.





lets all hope it doesn't disturb the tour.........

I remember watching in amazement as Geddy sang, played bass, and played the keyboards with his feet. I thought, "Who is this guy???"

I thought you might, but remember, it's been moved a ba-zillion times already!! They might be able to delay it until the tour ends, which seems to be their strategy. Much luck to you :???:

Trial of Rush guitarist, son delayed until September
The trial scheduled of Rush founder and his son was postponed after
defense attorneys told the judge they need more time to prepare

By CHRIS W. COLBY, cwcolby@naplesnews.com
June 10, 2004

The date for the battery trial of the lead guitarist and founder of the
rock group Rush, and his son, was pushed back another three months
Wednesday.

Alex Zivojinovich, also known on-stage as Alex Lifeson, and his son
Justin are scheduled to be tried the week of Sept. 13 in Collier County
Circuit Court. The trial scheduled for Monday was postponed after defense
attorneys told Judge Cynthia Ellis they need more time to prepare. The
delay came in a routine hearing called a sounding, which is held the
week before a trial date so attorneys for both sides can inform the judge
on the progress of the case.

The two Zivojinoviches were arrested after what reports described as a
scuffle with Collier County sheriff's deputies on New Year's Eve at The
Ritz-Carlton in North Naples. Alex Zivojinovich, 50, has a residence in
North Naples.

Justin Zivojinovich, 33, created a disturbance by going on-stage to
join the Ritz house band after he was warned not to. The arrest report
says he was verbally abusive when told to leave the stage.

Alex Zivojinovich intervened when deputies were escorting his son off
the property. The deputies accuse the Rush guitarist of pushing a deputy
down a stairwell, causing her to hit her head on a concrete floor. They
also accuse Alex Zivojinovich of spitting blood in another deputy's
face. Deputies used stun guns to subdue the father and son.

The State Attorney's Office filed one count of resisting arrest with
violence against the son. That and the two battery charges the father
faces are third-degree felonies that could be punishable by up to five
years in prison upon conviction.

Each defendant has pleaded innocent.

Rush is scheduled to play concert dates in England and Scotland during
the week of the trial, with shows already sold out in Birmingham and
Manchester. Alex Zivojinovich is allowed to travel outside the country
under the conditions of his bond, but it remains to be seen how his case
would be disposed of by plea agreement or trial if he is scheduled to
be out of Florida performing in a concert.
