Rush court hearing is delayed

A case in Lawrence Municipal Court against Kansas University basketball player Brandon Rush has been continued to April 11 – after the basketball season is over.

Rush, a junior, was supposed to appear in court this morning on charges of failing to appear in court on two other occasions for traffic violations.

Instead, Rush’s appearance in court this morning was entered by his attorney David Brown, according to the city prosecutor’s office. His case was rescheduled before Judge Randy McGrath for 7 a.m., April 11.

The NCAA men’s basketball championship will be played April 7 in San Antonio.

Rush was arrested last week on two warrants for failure to appear. McGrath ordered him to be transported to the Douglas County Jail where he posted $500 bond and was released.

Rush had been cited on Oct. 19 for speeding and in December 2006 for driving on the left of a roadway and not having proof of insurance.
