TORONTO - A criminal court case involving former Ontario attorney general Michael Bryant has been put off until Dec 7.
The former political star, who has yet to appear in court, was represented by his lawyer, Marie Henein.
"We are anxious to have this matter move forward," she told the Toronto judge.
Henein said her client's case hasn't moved ahead because she is still waiting for disclosure documents from the Crown.
Mark Sandler, who represented the Crown in court, told the judge that both sides agree that the case should proceed as quickly as possible.
Both sides are expected to attend a closed door, case management session with Justice Paul Bentley on Nov. 30, which both sides described as a routine step.
Henein said she hopes to have the disclosure documents by then.
Bryant faces charges of criminal negligence causing death and dangerous driving causing death in a collision involving a cyclist in August.
Police say bike courier Darcy Allan Sheppard died after grabbing onto a car in Toronto following an altercation with the driver.
Since Bryant once appointed judges and oversaw Crown prosecutors, Vancouver lawyer Richard Peck has been brought in to prosecute the case.
An out-of-province judge is expected to preside over the trial once it begins.
