Federal trial for three other ex-officers charged in George Floyd's killing set for August

(CNN) The federal trial for former Minneapolis police officers Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng, and Thomas Lane , accused of civil rights violations in the death of George Floyd, is scheduled for August 2, a judge said Friday.
Chauvin also faces federal criminal charges but his trial date has not been scheduled.
Thao, Kueng and Lane are accused of "deliberate indifference to his serious medical needs," according to the indictment.
Thao and Kueng were indicted as defendants who "willfully failed to intervene to stop Defendant Chauvin's use of unreasonable force."
Thao, Kueng and Lane appeared in federal court last Friday via video conference, and all three were released on $25,000 unsecured bonds, meaning they didn't have to post any collateral.
The federal trial will happen months before the three men's state trial.
It was postponed until March 7 so that the federal trial can take place first, Hennepin County Judge Peter Cahill announced Thursday, according to a pool reporter in court.
Kueng, Lane, and Thao are accused by state prosecutors of aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting second-degree manslaughter.
Their roles in Floyd's deathThe three ex-officers' actions on May 25, 2020, were shown in detail during Chauvin's trial in videos from bystanders, police body cameras and surveillance footage.
He put his knees on Floyd's neck and back, while Kueng held down Floyd's torso and Lane held his legs.
While Chauvin, Kueng and Lane restrained Floyd, Thao stood nearby and blocked concerned bystanders from getting close, repeatedly raising his voice and arguing with them.
All four officers were fired in the wake of the bystander video's release, and they were arrested and charged days later.
