Tsarnaev Boston Marathon bombing trial will begin Monday


BOSTON - Despite several attemps from defense lawyers to delay the trial, the United States of America v. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev will begin Monday.

According to a report by the Boston Globe, the appeals court denied the motions to delay the trial stating in its decision "it is clear that the petition falls far short of meeting the requirements for issuing the extraordinary writ of mandamus."

A document library for the case is available by clicking this link to the Globe's website.

1,200 prospective jurors have been summoned to appear at the federal courthouse in South Boston this week, according to the Globe.
