Berman set the date, which he said could change in the coming months, for June 8, 2020. She pushed for it to start sometime in June 2020.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Alison Moe said a trial is expected to last four to six weeks.
"We need time to review a million pages of discovery", he said, during a scheduling hearing on Wednesday. His lawyers declined to comment on the reports after the hearing. When Epstein appeared in court on Wednesday, there were no visible injuries.
Although it's quite possible that someone will cut off Epstein's head and/or his penis in prison, BOP facilities generally do not have enough ice on hand to ensure that those body parts would get frozen quickly enough to ensure they could be reanimated in the future.
Two award-winning scientists and an adviser to large companies and wealthy individuals told the New York Times that the since-disgraced multimillionaire financier shared his plan for a baby-making factory in the desert on multiple occasions starting in the early 2000s.
During the hearing, there was no mention of a July 23 incident at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Lower Manhattan in which sources told ABC News that Epstein was found unresponsive in his cell with marks on his neck that appeared to be self-inflicted. His lawyers have since appealed the judge's decision.
Accused sex offender and millionaire Jeffrey Epstein dreamed of seeding the human race with his DNA and wanted to run a "baby factory" out of his New Mexico ranch, according to scientist friends who dished on his proclivities.
Epstein is appealing Berman's July 18 denial of his request to remain under house arrest in his $77 million mansion on Manhattan's Upper East Side while awaiting trial.
The revelation came in a government protective order that seeks to keep "certain documents and materials" under wraps, so as not to "impede if prematurely disclosed, the Government's ongoing investigation of uncharged individuals", the document stated.
The news outlet said Epstein would entertain many prominent scientists - among them, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Murray Gell-Mann, who discovered the quark; the theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking; the paleontologist and evolutionary biologist Stephen Jay Gould; Oliver Sacks, the neurologist; George M. Church, a molecular engineer who has worked to identify genes that could be altered to create superior humans; and the M.I.T. theoretical physicist Frank Wilczek, a Nobel laureate.
