U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s denial of Roger Stone’s motion to delay his surrender date at a federal prison by two months cited his efforts to intimidate her and jurors during proceedings in his case, according to an opinion unsealed Monday.

Jackson late last week denied Stone’s motion to push his June 30th report date until Sept. 3 over the COVID-19 pandemic, instead ordering him to remain in home confinement for two weeks before surrendering to authorities on July 14 to serve a 40-month sentence.
