Court proceedings against a Toronto police officer charged with assault at the Group of 20 summit have been put over until the end of February.
Constable Babak Andalib-Goortani didn't appear in person for his first court date, but a paralegal representing him recorded prominent lawyer Harry Black as his defence counsel.
Crown attorney Philip Perlmutter told the court he planned to disclose the evidence to the officer's lawyers before then.
"Basically, I'm just waiting for it to arrive in my office," he told a courtroom packed to capacity with reporters.
The matter was put over to Feb. 28.
Outside the court, Mr. Perlmutter said he hoped to set a date for a pretrial on that day, but it would be up to the defence.
