PHILADELPHIA (WKOW) -- Oprah Winfrey is expected to spend two weeks in Philadelphia defending a case linked to a sexual abuse scandal at her South African girls' school.
The trial is set to start March 29.
The talk show host's lawyers say in recent filings she must attend as a named defendant and has rearranged her TV production schedule to do so. She also appears likely to testify.
The case centers on remarks Winfrey made in suspending a headmistress amid the 2007 abuse complaints.
Winfrey had said she "lost confidence" in Nomvuyo Mzamane and was "cleaning house from top to bottom."
A judge this week refused to drop Mzamane's defamation suit.
A dorm matron was later charged with abusing six students.
