Court Rejects Hunter Biden’s Bid to Dismiss Gun Charges, Paving Way for Trial – EVOL

President Joe Biden’s son is now scheduled to go on trial in June.

A federal court on May 9 turned down an attempt by President Joe Biden’s son to dismiss gun charges filed against him by federal prosecutors, setting him up to go on trial.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit ruled that Hunter Biden had not shown that district court orders he appealed were able to be challenged before the court enters its final decisions on the matter.

“The defendant’s appeal is dismissed for lack of appellate jurisdiction,” U.S. Circuit Judges Patty Shwartz, Cindy Chung, and David Smith wrote in the ruling.

Judge Schwartz is an appointee of President Barack Obama. Judge Chung was appointed by President Biden. Judge Smith is an appointee of President George W. Bush.

Shortly after the appeals court decision was handed down, U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika, who is overseeing the case against Mr. Biden, said Mr. Biden’s trial is scheduled to start on June 3.

Judge Noreika, an appointee of President Donald Trump, also scheduled a pretrial conference for May 24 and told the parties to submit proposed jury instructions by May 17.
