VICTORVILLE • A case in which the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has accused the city of Victorville with investment fraud has been pushed back by a federal judge.

Judge John A. Kronstadt of the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles granted a request by the defendants to continue the date of the hearing to Oct. 28, according to court documents.

At that time the judge is expected to decide on a motion to dismiss and strike certain SEC claims for alleged investment fraud in the federal case.

Defendants who made the request include the city of Victorville, Southern California Logistics Airport Authority and airport authority Assistant Executive Director Keith Metzler.

Court documents indicate the change in scheduling order was issued by the judge under a civil procedure in federal court that regards pretrial conferences and their management.
