John Edwards Seeks Trial Delay Due to ‘Medical Condition’

The condition known as “scaredaprisonitis” is very common in situations like this, or we could chalk it up to something as simple as a “bad hair day” — only John Edwards, his lawyers and Bain de Soleil valet know for sure:

Former presidential candidate John Edwards says he has been diagnosed with a medical condition that would make it difficult for him to attend his approaching criminal trial over campaign finances and is asking for it to be delayed.

In a motion filed Thursday, Edwards’ lawyers asked a federal judge to delay the start of the Jan. 30 trial for at least two months. They did not disclose his illness and filed sealed records with the court.

“The Defendant has a medical issue … that will prevent a trial of this matter during the January 2012 Criminal Term,” the motion says. “The failure to grant a continuance would be likely to result in a miscarriage of justice.”
[…]
The start date of the trial has already been put back once after Edwards said he needed more time to prepare his defense and attend his daughter’s wedding.

Edwards appeared healthy last week at a pretrial hearing in the case.

So what’s the medical condition? I’m guessing it might be… oh, let’s just say the result of extended periods of nervousness caused by the possibility of being transferred from the first America to the second America.

The undisclosed illness means Edwards is now facing the ultimate dilemma for a man with his legal resume: Trying to figure out how to chase his own ambulance.
