Federal District Judge David Hittner signed an order transferring Stanford without mentioning the fight, which happened in Conroe, north of Houston, where Mr. Stanford, 59, has been held since he was indicted in June.
“The court recognizes the extraordinary nature and complexity of this case, the extent and gravity of the charges levied against Stanford, the hundreds of thousands of records involved, and the enormous amount of time no doubt necessary to review those documents and adequately prepare a defense,” Judge Hittner said in his order.
Stanford has denied any wrongdoing in connection with 21 felony charges.
In other news, according to this story in the U.K.’s Daily Mail, Stanford was beaten unconscious in October of last year while an inmate at Conroe.
