Judge Aileen Cannon said it would be "imprudent" to set another trial date in former President Donald Trump's classified documents case until a number of pre-trial issues could be settled. 

 On Tuesday, Cannon vacated the May 20 date and set deadlines for multiple pre-trial hearings, but said it was too soon to set a trial date, especially with issues pending regarding the Classified Information Procedures Act.

"The Court also determines that finalization of a trial date at this juncture – before resolution of the myriad and interconnected pre-trial and CIPA issues remaining and forthcoming – would be imprudent and inconsistent with the Court’s duty to fully and fairly consider the various pending pre-trial motions before the Court, critical CIPA issues, and additional pretrial and trial preparations necessary to present this case to a jury," Cannon wrote in her order.
