It appears we won't get an update Friday on where things stand in Robert Kraft's solicitation of prostitution case.
A hearing scheduled for the New England Patriots owner Friday in Palm Beach County, Fla., has been cancelled, a court representative confirmed to Jorge Milian of the Palm Beach Post.
Per Milian, Judge Leonard Hanser called off the hearing because he was sick.
Jack Goldberger, Robert Kraft’s West Palm Beach-based attorney, just told me Judge Leonard Hanser chose to cancel hearing. “Nothing nefarious,” Goldberger said, adding that he’s working on re-scheduling hearing.— Jorge Milian (@caneswatch) May 17, 2019

The hearing was set up to receive updates from prosecutors and the defense as Kraft's legal team continues to battle his two misdemeanor charges of soliciting prostitution at the Orchids of Asia Day Spa.
Kraft scored a major win earlier this week when a Florida judge granted his motion to suppress all video evidence in the case on the grounds that it was obtained illegally.
Kraft's attorneys have pushed hard to keep any surveillance footage from inside the spa under wraps, filing a follow-up motion this week requesting the state suppress the video even after Kraft's case is settled.
UPDATE (10:25 a.m. ET): We have a new date and time for Kraft's hearing: Monday, May 20, at 3:30 p.m. ET.
