“It’s difficult enough to get accommodations on this island any time in June, July or August,” Barrett said. “It’s not happening in August. October, November, that’s what you’re looking at.”

Jackson alleged in court that the accuser’s mother, former local TV anchor Heather Unruh, deleted messages from the accuser’s phone.

Brian Glenny, the first assistant district attorney, said his office has already turned over the data that the defense has requested. Barrett is expected to make a ruling on a defense motion on the issue later this week.

Jackson urged the court to move as quickly as possible, given the effect of media attention on Spacey.

The judge said that the court shares its facilities with the probate department, and that jury trials are held only every other month. In response to the judge’s comment on the difficulty of finding accommodations in the summer months, Jackson jokingly offered to sleep in a tent.

Jackson also filed a request for surveillance video from the restaurant, but was informed that the restaurant did not have such video.
