LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The trial for the man seen attacking a Las Vegas judge in a viral video has been pushed to September.

Deobra Redden made an appearance in Clark County District Court on Thursday morning for a status check. His attorney, Carl Arnold, said during a previous hearing that he was in the process of reviewing Redden’s medical records, and claimed he was in a “delusional state” during the attack.

During Thursday’s hearing, Arnold told Judge Susan Johnson that he’s still working through those documents, and requested the April trial date be vacated.

Judge Johnson would grant that request and set a new trial date for Sept. 3.

On. Feb. 8, Redden was indicted by a grand jury on nine charges, including attempted murder, battery on a protected person, and extortion by threat. Redden could be seen leaping over the bench to attack Justice Court Judge Mary Kay Holthus in a Jan. 3 video that went viral. Redden was present in court before the attack for sentencing on a previous, unrelated case.

Redden is due back in court for a status check on June 25.
