BOSTON (AP) — Lawyers for mobster James “Whitey” Bulger are due in court to update a judge on a long-running dispute over evidence turned over to the defense by federal prosecutors.

Bulger, the former leader of the Winter Hill Gang, is charged with participating in 19 murders. He was captured in Santa Monica, Calif., last year after 16 years on the run.

Bulger’s lawyers have been sparring with prosecutors over the voluminous amount of evidence expected to be used at Bulger’s trial. The defense has repeatedly complained that prosecutors have turned over a mountain of disorganized documents.

Last month, U.S. Magistrate Judge Marianne Bowler told the two sides to cooperate. Defense lawyers and prosecutors are due in U.S. District Court Wednesday to give Bowler an update.

Bulger’s trial is scheduled to begin Nov. 5.
