Wone trial date set

Washington Post editors

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.

I saw Joe Price Saturday evening, drunk, dancing his a$$ off at a local gay danceboutique. Acted like he didn't have a care in the world. How that man sleeps at night knowing that his supposed friend was viciously murdered in his house is beyond me. He should rot in H*ll for the role he played.

sometimes you just have to dance to keep from crying topwomanexec.

I've had plenty of personal tragedy and the loss of loved ones in my life, but that doesn't mean my life stoped and i'm supposed to be sad for the benefit of those spying on me and judging me.

maybe you should stop stalking people you read about in the papers and live your own life.

Everyone should get out and dance once in a while.
try it and maybe you wont be such a sour puss.

Hey MarilynManson (you coward POS), f you and anyone else who act as apologists for Joe Price and his murdering love-triangle accomplices.

It seems pretty likely to me that you are one of those three scumbags or is actually friends with them. Either way, you are a LOSER.

I see that Joe still has done nothing to assist in finding the (ahem) true killer of Robert Wone. Instead, he is hell-bent on keeping Mrs. Wone from seeing his phone records around the time of the murder. Way to go, Joe, you've managed to become more of a loser than your drug-addicted, thieving brother!

Has the judge already pocketed his bribe cash from the defense gang?

Joe Price will probably never draw a sober breath again and not because he is "partying". I am sure looking at himself in the mirror has been a degrading, painful, experience since long before Robert Wone died.

I am sad though that Mrs. Wone is being encouraged to keep this wound bleeding rather then moving on with her life. I am sure Covington and Burling sees a big payday from the insurance companies and the harpies on that sicko-prurient website must be thrilled to still have their life's missions but for Mrs. Wone this just prolongs the pain.

If a woman spent the night on my couch and wound up murdered, you can believe that the cops and prosecutors would find a way to put me in jail. I don't fault the defendants for using the legal system to gain acquittal in the criminal trial. What is both tragic and hilarious is the fact that supporters of the defendants seem to treat this brutal murder so casually, and even laud the defendants in terms fitting for Nobel peace prize laureates. Is there no shame in this town?

It would be interesting to learn some more data on Joe Price's dance partners at the gay dance boutique.

Was he with his legal spouse or did that one take off when he discovered he was not the love of Joe's life? Was he with his other spouse (the "love of my life") or did that one depart for greener pastures and another career?

Was Joe Price the "Belle of the Ball" Saturday night or dancing alone? Did he do some fancy footwork with friends of friends? Is he alone these days, part of a couple, or still part of a trouple?
