On May 5, On May 5, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York Judge Richard M. Berman held a proceeding. Inner City Press covered it.

  Judge Berman asked if and why the US Attorney's Office is pursuing an 82 year old man who may have dementia on these charges.

The AUSA replied that no one has raised competency, and that it had allowed Dupont to reside in a contracted nursing home given his age. 

  Dupont was asked to mute his phone. He replied that he didn't know how.

  Judge Berman said he would be setting an August 2021 trial date. There appears to be a separate case before SDNY Judge Edgardo Ramos.
