The date has been set: John Galliano will stand trial in Paris on June 22nd. WWD reports: "During the hearing, judiciaries set the date and also stated the names of plaintiffs: Geraldine Bloch, Philippe Virgitti and Fathia Oumeddour. The three people allege Galliano hurled insults at them at a Paris bar during two separate incidents: one on Oct. 8, 2010, and one last Feb. 24. The penalty in France for insult against people due to their origin, belonging or not belonging to a religion, race or ethnicity is six months imprisonment and a fine of 22,500 euros, or $31,271 at current exchange, according to the French prosecutor."
