The attorney for a Maine shipyard worker accused of setting a fire that caused $400 million in damage to a submarine says in court documents that lawyers are discussing a “potential resolution” that would avoid the need for a grand jury indictment. Prosecutors say 24-year-old Casey James Fury of Portsmouth, N.H., confessed to setting a fire in May that damaged the USS Miami. They say he also confessed to setting a second fire in June near the submarine. Foster’s Daily Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/Mylr6K) in federal court documents filed Tuesday, Fury’s lawyer asked a judge to extend prosecutors’ time to seek an indictment to allow experts to review the case. Public defender David Beneman indicated he and the prosecutor have been meeting to discuss the possibility of foregoing the indictment.
