Ex-judge Casey Moreland will stand trial on federal obstruction charges next year, a federal jurist ruled Friday afternoon. The Tennessean reports that Chief U.S. District Judge Waverly Crenshaw said the June 19 trial would occur even if a broader federal corruption investigation is still ongoing, a point of contention between defense lawyers and prosecutors on Moreland's case. Moreland denies wrongdoing and pleaded not guilty to five felony counts. He resigned his post as General Sessions judge effective in April.
