Why Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman’s Court Dates Have Been Pushed Back


Lori Loughlin and Felicity Huffman will both separately appear before a judge on April 3, after their respective court dates for their alleged involvements in the national college admissions scandal were pushed back.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts tweeted on Thursday, March 21, that the date for the Desperate Housewives alum, 56, would be moved from March 29 to April 3.

According to the Associated Press, which reported the story one day prior, the date was moved after the Oscar nominee’s Boston-based lawyer requested the delay for an out-of-town conflict.

Loughlin, 54, and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, who were also originally scheduled to appear in court on March 29, have had their court date changed to to April 3, as well.

A judge agreed to move the date on Thursday after the duo’s legal team cited scheduling conflicts, the AP reports.

Huffman stands accused of paying $15,000 to give her eldest daughter, Sofia, 18, extra time to take her SAT exams. The actress was arrested at gunpoint on March 12 and released on a $250,000 bail later that day.
