A judge denies Hunter Biden’s appeal regarding gun charges, setting the stage for the June trial

A trial next month is now imminent for Hunter Biden as a federal appeals court has dismissed his attempt to dismiss the gun charges against him.

The Third Circuit Court of Appeals dismissed an attempt by the president’s son to have his felony gun case in Delaware dismissed. The court rejected his challenge to the charges on procedural grounds.

In a concise four-page ruling, the three-judge panel emphasized that it was not the appropriate time to address the merits of Biden’s challenge. Thus, they declined to entertain the appeal.

According to an order issued by Maryellen Norieka, the district judge overseeing his case, the ruling clears the path for Biden to face trial on June 3.

The next court appearance for Biden is set for May 24, where he will attend a pretrial conference.

According to prosecutors, Biden allegedly provided false information on a federal form regarding his drug use while acquiring a Colt Cobra 38SPL revolver in 2018. This comes after his admission, detailed in his memoir “Beautiful Things,” that he struggled with drug addiction during that period. Although Biden only possessed the firearm for a brief period of 11 days and never used it, his legal team has maintained his innocence.

Special counsel David Weiss indicted Biden in September of last year.

Despite a previous attempt in April, the charges were not dismissed.
