UPDATE 7/16/07: District Attorney's office prosecutor Carrie Panetta informs us that Sorg's next court appearance will be a demurrer hearing. A demurrer challenges the validity of a legal complaint without admitting or denying the charges made in the complaint. "In this case, the defense argues that the statute of limitations prevents these charges because there is no admissible corroborating evidence," Panetta explains. "We believe there is sufficient corroborating evidence. If the Judge grants the demurrer, the case is dismissed. If the Judge denies the demurrer, the defendant will have to enter a plea and we will set the case for a pre-trial hearing to attempt to resolve the case or set it for a preliminary hearing where evidence will be presented."
According to the Alameda County District Attorney's office, the Kay Sorg arraignment and plea hearing have been delayed until September 24. She has not yet entered a plea and no trial date has been set. Trial dates are not set until after plea hearings.

For former student: I have a call in to the D.A.'s office to see if the July 11 hearing was held and if a plea was entered, but I'm still waiting for an answer.
For Moe Hong:
The last update I did was on June 22, stating that Kay Sorg's hearing had been rescheduled for July 11 (today). Here is the link:
To all of our readers: updates will always be posted on the 92510 blog's main page, at http://blogs.eastbayexpress.com/92510/ so please check there first for the most current information! Thanks to all for your patience -- the court system moves slowly, which means that our coverage of it must be slow as well.
Wow, very interesting! Anyone else got other suggestions?

We've got a call in to the Alameda County D.A.'s office, but no word yet. We'll post on the front page of the blog when we have an update! -- Kara
Well, looks like Sothebys' bidders didn't have enough quarters after all. MediaNews reports today that since bidding didn't come up to Cort Allen's "reserve price," he's keeping his Atari artwork collection, with an eye to perhaps selling it off in smaller lots later.
