The second trial in the civil case filed by Jordan Miles against Pittsburgh police officers has been postponed from a November date to March 10.
U.S. District Judge David S. Cercone issued the new trial schedule today.
Mr. Miles was a high school senior and viola player at the time of the January 2010 stop on a Homewood street. He accused officers Richard Ewing, Michael Saldutte and David Sisak of beating him. They said he ran when questioned and resisted arrest and claimed they thought he had a gun.
A jury found that the officers had not maliciously prosecuted Mr. Miles and could not reach unanimity on whether he was falsely arrested and subjected to excessive force.
Mr. Miles' legal team now consists of attorneys Joel Sansone, based Downtown, and Robert M. Giroux of the Detroit firm Feiger Law and led by Geoffrey Feiger.
Attorneys J. Kerrington Lewis and Timothy O'Brien, who handled the first trial last year, are taking a supporting role.
Officer Ewing has since left the police force.
