“Justices Won’t Hear Menendez Appeal in Corruption Case”

AP:

—The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to hear New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez’s appeal of his corruption indictment, setting the stage for a federal trial in the fall.

The justices let stand a lower court ruling that refused to dismiss charges including conspiracy, bribery and fraud against the Democratic lawmaker.

Senator Menendez’s lawyers have managed to stretch this out for a long time, but I’m thinking that we may have a new Senator from New Jersey at some point in the not too distant future.
