Jury selection in the obscenity trial of rap group 2 Live Crew has been slowed by legal wrangling over the racial makeup of the jury pool and the state's challenge of the judge.

Group leader Luther Campbell and band members Chris Wongwon and Mark Ross face misdemeanor obscenity charges stemming from a June 10 adults-only performance at a nightclub in nearby Hollywood.If convicted, the three could be sentenced to up to a year in jail and fined $1,000.
