The trial of Gail O'Rorke who is alleged to have assisted the suicide of Bernadette Forde, who was living with MS and died in 2011, will be delayed based on a lengthy period of discovery.
The trial, which was to begin on April 13 in Dublin, was expected to be heard over a two week period.
On April 29, 2013, the Irish Supreme Court upheld the assisted suicide law by stating, in the Fleming case, that there is no right to assisted suicide in Ireland.
