Mar­tin Shkre­li will have his day(s) in court - next June


Mar­tin Shkre­li has just un­der a year to prep for his tri­al on fed­er­al se­cu­ri­ties charges.

Judge Kiyo Mat­sumo­to set the tri­al date for June 26 next year, ac­cord­ing to wire re­ports.

But while the scan­dal and re­sult­ing out­cry may have made him a tempt­ing tar­get for fed­er­al in­ves­ti­ga­tors—es­pe­cial­ly as the youth­ful look­ing ex­ec took to Twit­ter to taunt and sneer at his le­gion of tor­men­tors—it has noth­ing to do with his fed­er­al case.
