The re-trial of former Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver has been delayed.
It was set to begin Monday at Federal Court in Manhattan. However, during a hearing on Tuesday, Silver's attorneys revealed that a star witness may have to undergo surgery. That will delay his testimony a week or two.
An appeals court reversed Silver's conviction in 2015 on corruption charges.
