If Kobe Bryant's case goes to trial -- a judge with less than a year on the bench could receive it under a rotating system used to assign cases.

District Judge Tom Moorhead says he is in line to preside over the case if the N-B-A superstar goes to trial on a felony sexual assault charge -- but that could change. Moorhead became a judge last fall.

Karen Salaz is a spokeswoman for the state court system and says a felony case must be sent to district court before the selection
of a judge is final.

She says speculation about which judge would have a case would be premature now.
