A judge ruled that their case – in which Humphries alleges that Kardashian committed fraud by never intending to be married – is ready for trial.
“[Humphries] has had more than adequate time to prepare,” L.A. Superior Court Judge Stephen Moloney stated during the Friday hearing. A trial date of May 6 was set. Neither Kardashian nor Humphries were present in court on Friday.
The NBA star’s attorney, Marshall Waller – who had filed papers Thursday to be removed from the case – has long claimed difficulty in gathering evidence from various entertainment companies that work with Kardashian.
