He has faced eight sex trafficking and one extortion cases. He has denied all charges against him and none have been proven in court

Nygard’s lawyers have argued that the 79-year-old is facing numerous health problems and that he would likely die if contracted the novel coronavirus

Justice Shawn Greenberg, who leads the three-day hearing, said last week that she needed more time to make her decision
