Former Casino Control Commissioner Violet Anne Golden and co-defendant Stephanie Barnes requested to have their trial date pushed back to early next year, citing the complexity of their case and the volumes of evidence still needing review.

According to court documents filed in late October, both Golden and Barnes, via their attorneys, submitted applications for a speedy trial extension up to March 31.
