dfrf-enterprises-logoJust under a year ago, Daniel Filho was arrested in Florida.

Since then Filho has been in protective custody, with a criminal case slowly progressing to trial in the background.

A Joint Final Status Report was filed on June 13th, with a Final Status Conference scheduled for June 29th.

The conference was held as scheduled, with Judge Gorton scheduling a jury trial for November 7th, 2016.

The estimated length of Filho’s criminal trial is 7 to 10 days.

Other dates mandated in the order include:

  • motions in limine must be filed by 17th October
  • any oppositions to motions in limine, exhibit and witness lists and proposed jury instructions due by 24th October
  • objections to exhibit and witness lists and proposed verdict due by 31st October
  • Final pretrial conference scheduled for 3rd November
