A federal judge agreed Thursday to delay until next year the trial of an Israeli charged with operating a worldwide Ecstasy trafficking organization. US District Judge William Dimitrouleas set a new Jan. 22 trial date for Zeev Rosenstein after his attorney, Roy Black, and federal prosecutors said they needed more time to gather evidence and interview witnesses in Europe, Israel and elsewhere. "We have a number of difficulties related to the investigation of this case," Black said. Trial had been scheduled to begin Nov. 27 for Rosenstein, 51, who is charged with conspiring to distribute more than 1 million pills of the synthetic drug MDMA, or Ecstasy, in the United States. Rosenstein has pleaded not guilty and has been held without bail since his March extradition from Israel.
