  • Sim Hoffman, M.D., A Case Ten Years In The Making. Trial Now On Calendar For November 3rd 2021. Part 2. 

    The case of Sim Hoffman, M.D., with its tens of millions of dollars in alleged workers’ compensation claims frauds, continued on in the Orange County Superior Court in the year 2018.  Hoffman's preliminary hearing was now three years in the past.  Delay…  delay…  delay…  had been the name of the game from his defense team.  One 995 motion came on after another.  There were demurrers, as well.  Other legal maneuvers.  It became monotonous with little forward motion for the prosecution. 

    Every time the trial was put on the calendar, it was continued again.  And again.  And again.

    By 2018 and 2019, Dr. Hoffman would sit in the court room with red eyes. After the proceedings, he would leave through the back door of the court house.  He used to for the first years of the case leave through the front, usually walking with one or the other or both of his defense counsels.  But now he left all alone through the back, solemn and solitary, regularly looking down at his cell phone.

    Then came the heavy pandemic year of 2020.  Court rooms closed for some months.  Trials as routine were continued.  Judges did not want to lose jurors to COVID-19.  There was incredible concern and court calendars ground to a slow crawl.
