WASHINGTON (WFAN/AP) — The judge in the Roger Clemens perjury trial is imposing a time limit on all future witnesses in an effort to speed things up.

U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said on Friday that each side will have no more than 90 minutes to question each witness, unless the lawyers can make good cases to show that they need an extension.

The limitations were to take effect once Clemens’ chief accuser, Brian McNamee, leaves the stand. McNamee has been testifying all week about the injections that he said he gave Clemens more than a decade ago.

The trial is at the end of its fifth week. Walton put the lawyers on notice that if it doesn’t end by June 8th, he will have to suspend it for a month because of schedule conflicts.

So apparently fans aren’t the only ones that feel like this trial has been going on for a decade. Offer your thoughts and comments in the section below…
