A judge yesterday set the trial dates for the NatWest 3, the three British bankers charged with looting Enron. Although David Bermingham, Giles Darbyand and Gary Mulgrew have complained about rulings requiring them to stay in the US while they await trial, their attorneys rejected an earlier date, claiming they needed more time to prepare the defense.
The three did get some good news yesterday. A magistrate rejected prosecutors’ requests that they be placed under house arrest and even indicated that their Martha Stewart-style ankle bracelets may be removed. A bail hearing in the next few days will decide that issue.
