The provisional trial date for former Leicester MP Lord Janner has been set for February next year.
It will be a trial of the facts, which is when a jury hears the evidence against an individual considered too ill for a full trial. There is, therefore, no guilty verdict and the court cannot pass sentence.
The 87-year-old peer is accused of 15 counts of indecent assault and seven counts of a separate sexual offence against a total of nine alleged victims over the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
A fitness to plead hearing will take place on December 7 this year, and a provisional trial date has been set for February 22 2016, at a venue to be confirmed.
His family have always denied any wrongdoing on Lord Janner's part.
