Update on anarchist political prisoner Eric King’s trail, which has currently been rescheduled.

Eric’s pre-trial conference and trial has been rescheduled.

First, there will be an evidentiary hearing regarding Eric’s motion to suppress. More details to come.

Judge’s order:

ORDER as to Eric King (1): With respect to [114] Defendant Eric King’s Amended Motion to Suppress, the Court finds there are disputed issues of fact necessitating an evidentiary hearing on that Amended Motion.

Based on that conclusion, the four-day Jury Trial currently set to commence on October 12, 2021, and the Final Trial Preparation Conference set for October 1, 2021, are hereby VACATED and will be reset upon resolution of Defendant’s Amended Motion to Suppress.

The Amended Motion automatically excludes time from the Speedy Trial Clock so no additional motion seeking this relief is necessary. The Court will set the suppression hearing by way of separate Order. SO ORDERED by Judge William J. Martinez on 9/28/2021
