ALFRED, Maine - Maine's highest court has agreed to an expedited hearing focusing on 46 counts that were dropped against a key figure in a prostitution scandal centered at a Zumba dance studio in the seaside town of Kennebunk.

A judge on Tuesday delayed the trial of Mark Strong Sr. to allow the supreme court to rule on an appeal of her dismissal of 46 out of 59 misdemeanor counts.

The dismissed charges deal with invasion of privacy of prostitution clients who were allegedly videotaped without their knowledge during sexual encounters.

Strong's lawyers wanted to continue with a trial on the remaining 13 counts.

The supreme court ordered briefs to be submitted before oral arguments on Feb. 13.
