Dr. Larry Lawson case UPDATE

Dr. Lawson’s team of attorneys has been aggressively litigating his case and has filed many, many motions.

To recap, Dr. Lawson was indicted on October 18, 2016. The trial in his case was originally scheduled for February 2, 2017 and rescheduled to January 29, 2018 and then rescheduled again.

It is currently set to take place beginning on August 27, 2018.

Here is the entire Docket Report to date:

Dr. Lawson’s Motion to Dismiss Count Five was denied on March 20th, 2018. (Docket Entry 199.)  Dr. Lawson filed a Motion for Reconsideration of this Order on April 12th (Docket 208).  The court has not yet issued a final ruling on the Motion for Reconsideration.

Dr. Lawson has also filed a Motion to Suppress, a dozen Motions in Limine, a Motion to Strike, a Motion to Compel Discovery, and most recently, a Motion for a Hearing and Request for Additional Remedies.

This latest motion (Docket 231) and all of the related attachments is very interesting:
