BALTIMORE (AP) — A federal judge has denied a request from the U.S. Justice Department to postpone a hearing on an agreement to overhaul the Baltimore Police Department. The Justice Department filed a motion earlier this week to push back the hearing, scheduled for Thursday, until June. The department said it wanted time to review the plan and determine whether the proposal would hinder efforts to fight violent crime. U.S. District James Bredar rejected the request Wednesday, saying in his order that pushing back the hearing “at the eleventh hour" would be a “burden and inconvenience to the court, other parties, and most importantly, the public." He says the hearing had been jointly requested by the Justice Department and the city. A Justice Department spokesman declined to comment on the order.  SEE ALSO: Police departments vow to move forward on reform despite Sessions’ move to roll it back
