Wone trial date set
A D.C. Superior Court judge has set a June 13 trial date for the wrongful death suit filed by the family of slain Washington attorney Robert E. Wone, according to documents filed in D.C. Superior Court late Monday.
Judge Brook Hedge, who is overseeing the lawsuit, filed a schedule in preparation for the civil trial against the three roommates --Joseph R. Price, Victor J. Zaborsky and Dylan M. Ward --who lived at 1509 Swann St. NW at the time Wone was stabbed to death there on Aug. 2, 2006.
No one ever has been charged with killing Wone, and the three roommates were acquitted earlier this year on charges that they altered the crime scene to protect the killer.
The men say an unknown intruder came into their house and killed Wone as he slept in an upstairs guest room.
As part of the scheduling order, the judge required all evidence in the case be gathered by March 15 and all motions filed by April 14. In addition, Hedge gave both sides a month -- from March 15 to April 14 -- for mediation to reach an agreement in the lawsuit.
The next status hearing before Hedge is scheduled for Sept. 10.
