Howard K. Stern was in court today — where the judge set a date for the preliminary hearing in the Anna Nicole Smith drug case.

We’re told, both sides combined, there will be at least 90 witnesses — around 60 for the prosecution, 30 for the defense.

Stern was arraigned last month on 11 felony counts related to Anna Nicole’s prescription drug use — but today outside of court he was confident he’d be found not guilty.

He’ll be back in court October 13.
