WASHINGTON, April 16 – The Senate Judiciary Committee has postponed the hearing, originally set for Tuesday, in which Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales is to testify about the dismissals of eight United States attorneys.

The session was postponed because of the shootings at Virginia Tech and is now scheduled to begin Thursday at 9:30 a.m., said David Carle, a spokesman for Senator Patrick J. Leahy, the Vermont Democrat who heads the panel.
