Media report a Hamilton County judge on Tuesday set Feb. 27 as the date the trial will begin. That date was chosen after a conflict was found with Feb. 20, which the judge had originally selected.

Walker was driving 37 elementary students home when the bus left the curvy road, hit a utility pole, overturned and hit a tree, collapsing the roof.
