Italian lawyer strike may delay trial of Costa Concordia captain

It has been a year-and-a-half since the Italian cruise ship, The Costa Concordia, hit a reef and keeled over. Still, her captain, Francesco Schettino, has not had his day in court. It may be delayed yet again.
A lawyer’s strike in Italy, at the heart of the dispute is the lawyer’s anger at the government’s attempts to accelerate civil trials, is expected to be called this week, and while it may only last a week as a show of force, it could delay the beginning of Schettino’s trial.
