(b) Objection to Arraignment Date---Loss of Right to Object.Pharma bro Martin Shkreli will be tried separately from his former business lawyer on securities fraud charges, a federal judge ruled Wednesday. Shkreli, 34, will go on trial first, beginning June 26. District Court Judge Kiyo Matsumoto said that Shkreli's constitutional right to a fair trial would be at "serious risk" if he was tried side by side with co-defendant Evan Greebel, since Greebel's criminal defense attorney had threatened to act as "a second prosecutor" against Shkreli.The plaintiff asks the court to decide these matters.Since the lawyers and the court have to review many facts and the law on all disputed issues, contested divorces are obviously much more expensive and time-consuming.Greebel will be tried at a later date to be determined.
