A judge revised a schedule for court filings in the O.J. Simpson armed robbery case, but stuck to plans for a March 7 hearing on the legality of the charges against Simpson and two other men.
Clark County District Judge Jackie Glass told lawyers representing Simpson, Clarence Stewart and Charles Ehrlich they have until Jan. 31 to file motions in the case.
The judge gave prosecutors until Feb. 21 to respond.
Trial remains set for April 7.
Defense lawyers say they need time to sift through 1,200 pages of verbatim transcripts filed Wednesday following three-day preliminary hearing in November.
Ehrlich's lawyer, John Moran Jr., says he's looking for conflicts in testimony and evidence to use against the witnesses who testified against Simpson and the others.
