Fed case against NHHC partner set for next month
A status hearing is set for next month at the federal court in San Francisco in the U.S. Justice Department’s case against Quin Ngoc Rudin, aka Dean Rubin, aka David Rubin, who is one of the partners of the Native Hawaiian Holding Company, which is currently in a dispute with the local government over funds awarded to the organization under the National Emergency Grant program.
The status hearing was to have been held late last month, but attorneys on both side filed a joint motion for continuation which was granted by U.S. District Court Judge Jon S. Tigar.
The new court hearing is set for Nov. 22, at which time “a trial date will be set or a change of plea will occur,” according to court records.
Attorneys sought a continuance, because the parties in this case are in ongoing discussions about the the appropriate resolution of the case and the defense counsel needs additional time to revive the voluminous discovery and conduct necessary investigation.
A federal indictment early this year alleged that Rudin defrauded Cisco Systems Inc. and its subsidiary Cisco Systems Capital Corporation and Altura Pharmaceuticals, Inc. - through his own company called CGC Digital.
Rudin, who entered a not guilty plea, is charged with wire fraud and aggravated identity theft.
