BILL HEMMER, CNN ANCHOR: I want to take you in a moment here down to Miami-Dade Circuit Court. Those two America West pilots are in court today, the first appearance together. The judge is on the bench.

Let's listen.

(JOINED IN PROGRESS)

JUDGE DAVID YOUNG, MIAMI-DADE CIRCUIT COURT: Bonds persons are not judges. They don't -- defendants don't have the right to leave to leave the jurisdiction without getting court approval. Specifically 3.131 number F3. In determining -- I'm sorry. Pardon me. F31E1: "If a person is admitted to bail for appearance for a preliminary hearing, or on a charge that a magistrate is in power to try, the condition of undertaking shall be that the person will appear for the hearing, or to answer the charge, and will submit to orders and process of the magistrate, trying the same and will not depart without leave.

In other words, you can't leave the jurisdiction for future reference without getting court approval. I hope my colleagues in the circuit court are going to start following that, because, for so long, we've let defendants go wherever they want to go without getting court approval.

In your motion, you stated that there was no rule that they violated by traveling outside the state of Florida. They did. State doesn't have a problem with it. I don't have a problem with it. But they have got to stay, Mr. Pierson (ph), in Arizona. Understood. Good?

Now that we understand that? Let's get a trial day. What's a good date for trial?

HEMMER: We'll keep an eye on this. Again, it's the pretrial hearing to set a trial date for these two pilots, Jeffrey Toobin standing by as well. We will get to the legal ins and outs of what's happening, and what we may anticipate down the road here.
