Two of five men accused of the vicious bashing of a Finks bikie at the gang's Adelaide clubrooms have been granted bail due to the "inordinate delay" in their case coming to trial.
Bozidar Cekic, 24, and Mostyn Niemann, 27, would otherwise spend about 696 days in custody between arrest and trial, said Justice Trish Kelly in the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
They are due to be released on Thursday under strict home detention bail conditions.
The judge refused bail for a third accused, Corey Dettmann, 42.
The trio and two men who did not apply for bail - Dean Richard Ciantar, 24, and Paul Paunovic, 39 - have pleaded not guilty to aggravated counts of robbery and causing serious harm to the senior member of the now-defunct Finks bikie gang.
The bikie suffered collapsed lungs, a broken leg, a broken jaw and other facial fractures in the attack at the Salisbury clubrooms on February 13, 2013.
Police have alleged pool cues, a vacuum cleaner and a table were used to assault the victim in order to steal his $67,000 gold chain necklace.
The men's District Court trial was originally set down to begin on June 30, 2014 but after prosecution applications was adjourned to March 2015.
Justice Kelly said that in her view the application was ill-advised and unwarranted.
".... in the end result the delay between the date of the applicants' arrest and the date for trial will now be 696 days during which time the applicants have been remanded in custody," she said.
She granted bail because of the delay and because of reasons specific to Cekic and Niemann
