The ruling followed an acrimonious marathon hearing Tuesday that ended with the judge marching out of court as West angrily called after her, complaining about the long hours and lack of time the defense had to go over evidence it said the prosecution withheld.
"I'm not getting into this," Nelson said Tuesday night, appearing fed up at the mounting tension between both sides. "Court is in recess."
As she left, West continued to address her saying, "Judge, I'm not physically able to keep up this pace much longer." Nelson walked out of the courtroom without responding to him.
