Wone civil case goes forward

The wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of slain lawyer Robert Wone moved forward Wednesday with the judge asking both sides to propose dates for deadlines for evidence and other matters.

D.C. Superior Court Judge Brook Hedge ordered the attorneys for the Wone family as well as the attorneys for the three housemates of 1509 Swann St. NW to settle on a date by Aug. 6, more than a month before the next scheduled hearing of Sept. 20. Both sides would have to prepare and submit motions and depostitions by that date.

Wone’s widow, Katherine, has sued Joseph Price, Victor Zaborsky and Dylan Ward in connection wiith Wone’s killing. Wone was stabbed to death at the Swann Street home shared by the three, who claimed to be in a three-way romantic relationship. Wone and Price were college friends and Wone had asked to stay at the house in August 2006 rather than commute home to Oakton. He was killed in the guest bedroom.

Last month, after a nearly five week trial, a Superior Court judge acquitted the three men of conspiracy and obstruction of justice in Wone’s slaying. Prosecutors had alleged that the trio know who stabbed Wone and covered up for the killer.
