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


—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.
