The court hearing has been tentatively scheduled for Oct. 4, which would likely push the trial until after the 2024 presidential election on Nov. 5. 

A Georgia Appeals Court on Monday said it will begin its hearing on removing Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis from former President Donald Trump’s 2020 election interference case in October.

Fulton County Superior Court Judge Scott McAfee ruled in March that either Willis or special prosecutor Nathan Wade would need to step down from Trump’s case, after it was revealed the pair were previously in a relationship. Wade resigned, but Trump’s legal team is appealing the ruling and demanding Willis’s resignation.

The court hearing has been tentatively scheduled for Oct. 4, which would likely push the trial until after the 2024 presidential election on Nov. 5. 

“A calendar will be sent to counsel of record confirming the exact date of oral argument,” a notice on the hearing said, per ABC News.
