There's uncertainty about just when the much anticipated trafficking trial might start. When it does, it's expected to offer a unique glimpse into the inner workings of the Sinaloa cartel.

The cartel is run by Zambada's father, Ismael Zambada, and Mexico's most wanted man, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman. They're named in the same indictment as the younger Zambada but remain at large in Mexico.
