John Gimbel's trial delayed

The Crescent City man arrested on suspicion of sending an e-mail threatening to kill President Barack Obama and his family appeared in a San Francisco court Monday, but the hearing to set a date for his trial was delayed until Nov. 16. U.S. District Judge Marilyn Patel delayed setting a trial date for Gimbel, 59, and urged him to reconsider his decision to act as his own lawyer in the criminal case.
