    Forgive my ignorance here, if I missed it in a prior installment; but what is the legal logic behind the suspension of the trial?

      The linked-to articles explain in detail, and yes, it’s in linked-to previous coverage. It’s very opaque legal stuff, but basically, the defense argues that the trial is procedurally flawed and that the judge is biased, and another judge effectively upheld that. Now the legal body that is sort of like the Supreme Court of the United States (Corte Constitutional) has to decide whether or not the trial may continue.
