The meeting, which included Judge Regina M. Chu, Potter's attorney Earl Gray, and Imran Ali, a special assistant state prosecutor. A court reporter was also in attendance Monday afternoon.

Chu noted that she would like to schedule a tentative start day for the trial, Dec. 6. Both sides agreed but stated they each still have to work on their cases when it comes to witnesses and experts.

The state said they are hoping by next month to have a better idea where they stand, and the defense concurred.
