WASHINGTON (NEWSnet/AP) — Hunter Biden’s federal gun case should move forward, an appeals court ruled Thursday.

The three-judge panel of the court did not cinsder the merits of his appeal, ruling that a lower court's rejection of his various motions to dismiss the case are not applicabale at this time, according to the court order.

U.S. District Judge Maryellen Noreika said the case would proceed to trial on June 3, and is expected to last three to six days.

Biden's lawyers can seek a review from the full bench or petition the U.S. Supreme Court to consider the case.

A separate trial on tax charges in California is also tentatively set to begin in June.
