The opposition will not change by the time so why to postpone rather dropping the case makes more sense to me.

Because they don't have evidence, hence it's opposing by opposition. Once get the correct evident we can proof and opposition will automatically agree. Hence they postponed for some time.

@Goku I agree with you.

Even after some time, the opposition is great so the case will be lost. So they choose to drop.
