Police want the court's permission to re-examine Lloyd Rayney's seized computers and other electronic devices because an expert report did not answer a raft of questions.
Lawyer David Leigh, for the police, told Perth Magistrate's Court yesterday that police received the report in April and did not realise aspects were missing from its analysis. He said the unanswered questions centred on whether the computers were used at specific times and, if so, what they were used for.
Mr Rayney has previously claimed legal professional privilege in a bid to stop police analysing his computers, seized from his home and office in 2007.
Defence counsel David Edwardson opposed the application, saying it was a "distraction" to the trial and "extraordinary" that police had given such short notice on wanting further expert evidence.Chief Magistrate Steven Heath adjourned the matter to August 30.
