FREMONT, Neb. -- Trial has been delayed in a lawsuit over Fremont's ordinance that bans hiring or renting to illegal immigrants.

A combined lawsuit led by the American Civil Liberties Union and the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund is challenging the voter-approved ban as discriminatory.

The case had been scheduled to be heard in federal court on April 10. A U.S. magistrate on Monday granted a joint motion moving the trial to May 15. A pretrial conference is set for April 30.

Both sides have filed summary judgment motions, which would result in a judge ruling in the case before it goes to trial.
