On October 11, 2001 The Providence Journal reported, "Hearing for Sikh with dagger postponed." The article noted that Sher Singh's lawyer requested a postponement "to explore the 'lack of probable cause for the search,' and whether the Rhode Island statute prohibiting concealed weapons is overly broad. 'The statute is not tailored to allow [Singh's] freedom of religion.'"
