In a motion filed Tuesday, the government trial team opposed the request of four defendants to have some of the charges against them thrown out. The four men, indicted after an elaborate Federal Bureau of Investigation sting operation, are scheduled to go to trial on March 13. It would be third trial to come out of the probe.
But it may never happen. Criminal Division Chief Lanny Breuer and Washington, D.C., U.S. Attorney Ronald Machen are currently deciding whether or not to move forward with the case after the department endured setbacks in the first two trials. A hearing on the matter is scheduled for Feb. 21 in Washington’s U.S. District Court.
