FOUR Huddersfield Town fans accused of public order offences are still awaiting trial, almost a year after the alleged incidents.
A hearing at Bradford Magistrates' Court yesterday was told that crucial information sought by defence lawyers would be available "within two weeks".
But the Crown Prosecution Service will then have to decide whether the information - relating to complaints made about the behaviour of several police officers - should be released.
At the same court last week defence lawyers complained that the CPS had repeatedly failed to respond to their requests.
As a result, the trial - due to start yesterday - was taken out of the list.
Kevin Bland, 29, of Stones Lane, Golcar, and Jeremy McDonald, 38, of Longfield Avenue, Dalton, are charged with threatening behaviour.
John Metcalfe, 25, of Greenhead Lane, Dalton, and Craig Bowker, 28, of Handel Street, Golcar, are charged with disorderly conduct.
Carmen Sobande, for the CPS, told yesterday's hearing that the charges arose out of an incident at the Ring O' Bells pub in Bolton Road, Bradford, on March 5 last year, when police were there to escort fans to their bus.
She said the accused claimed the police response was "heavy-handed" and their solicitors had sought details of complaints made by a man and his son.
The person responsible for `building' the case had now returned to work and stated that the information would be available within two weeks.
The CPS would then have to apply the `disclosure test' to that information.
A large number of police officers from a number of divisions had been at the incident, said Ms Sobande.
Defence solicitor Carl Kingsley said the Crown had effectively not answered any defence letters at all.
Agreeing with deputy district judge Timothy Capstick that the case be adjourned until February 27, Mr Kingsley warned: "Any application for a further adjournment will be looked at more critically."
